Teachers collect work from students instantly using clicker-style assessments and by calling for open-ended question responses. Students demonstrate their understanding by contributing text, web resources, drawings, pictures, videos, and concept maps.

Technology supports effective teaching strategies: whole-class feedback, collaborative conversations, instant formative assessment, and peer- to-peer teaching.
