How do you include the voice of students who don't necessarily want to use their voice? Nearly half of our students are introverts. They may be silent – but their minds are active! Many of us include "class participation" in our grading. We need to evolve our teaching to include their voices - even if they don't want to use their "voices" - there are loads of ways to educate them & help their voices emerge. Come learn about tools to engage introverted students – whether they be online tools, cell phone tricks or old-school paper ideas.
