Psychology teachers often use activities and demonstrations to help communicate important concepts to students.  However, it can be difficult to know if students remember the concept or just the exciting details of the activity.  During this session, participants discuss how to keep the focus on learning during demonstrations.  The presenter shares several ways to use technology and the formative assessment process to check whether or not an activity resulted in students learning the psychology concept.  This hour-long session will include time for questions and answers.

Presented by Robert McEntarffer, Lincoln Public Schools, Lincoln, NE.
