Participants will work with through an interactive session that demonstrates, and tests Alexa tools designed to meet the needs of students while fostering growth of independence and creative thinking. In this session, we will be identifying needs of students to cultivate a response for specific classroom pathways while exploring various skills, blueprints and creative tools for use with the Amazon Echo Dot Kids Edition. This session will provide personalized tools ready for immediate use with the Amazon Echo Dot Kids Edition including:
• Testing skills/phrases/flash cards
• Uses of free time and blueprints (both preloaded and ways to create on your own)
• Finding “secret gems” within Alexa (teaching manners, clear speaking, concise questions, visualizing, reading comprehension, math fact fluency)
Real Talk from a teacher: I’m going to show you how to harness the power of Alexa to make it a valuable learning tool in your classroom that inspires student creativity, inquisitiveness and independence in a way you never know could exist!
