    How do you use technology to improve your lessons?

      How to Answer

      The interviewer wants to know how tech-friendly you are and how you use technology to support your in-class lessons. YouTube is an excellent resource for short clips or explainer videos on the concepts you're teaching. Additionally, you can make use of PowerPoint to give your students bolded notes or integrate videos into your presentation. Even mentioning a simple app such as Quizlet that can help students with their vocabulary, or Prezi for students to make their presentations. If you don't have much experience using technology in your teaching, it's a good idea to do some research before your interview.

      Rachelle's Answer

      "I firmly believe in the use of technology in the classroom. In my school, each student has their laptop, and they also use a variety of apps and websites to complete projects and conduct research. I am currently teaching a few tricks on PowerPoint as they will have a large multi-media project due at the end of this semester."

      Rachelle's Answer

      "Embracing technology is vital these days, and I believe that it must be incorporated heavily into the school curriculum so that we set our students up for success. Trained on how to use a Smart Board, which I believe you have in nearly every classroom, I am confident with that type of technology. Overall, I am very tech-savvy and am confident in my ability to prep my students for life in a tech-focused world."

      Rachelle's Answer

      "Having seen technology change so much over the years, I am always looking for the next and greatest thing that I can introduce to my students. If kids do not have a strong tech-basis once they graduate, they will quickly fall behind in University and the world of gainful employment. For that reason, my current school asks that each student have a laptop and that we use particular programs and apps to get them used to the most common programs used in the workplace. I have fully embraced tech in the classroom."

      "The different forms of technology that I have used to improve my lessons are Youtube, Google Classroom, Zoom, ComLit, Freckle, Quizlet, and Google Slides."

      Rachelle's Answer

      These are all helpful resources for improving lessons through the use of technology. Try also explaining how you utilize some of these resources, should the interviewer not be familiar (ComLit, Freckle, Quizlet). How do your students respond to these resources? Do you have any measurable results to offer?
