TEACH: Tips and Tricks for Using the Cloud to Make Your Classroom More Interactive

As an instruction librarian, I have been doing a lot of experiments to try to make my classroom more interactive. Clickers and Poll Everywhere haven’t worked for me. My classes are usually very discussion-based, but in the discussion I felt my students were THINKING but not DOING, and I needed a solution!

Recently, I’ve been using a combination of google drive and bit.ly to facilitate workshop-style in-class interactivity. It has worked great, and I would love to show you how I do it!
