  • Math, 5-12
  • Audience cap: 32
  • Participant devices (tablet, iPad, or laptop) are recommended but not required for this session

In this session Jason will outline how effective use of technology transformed his classroom from a traditional, teacher-centered environment to one where individual student needs are met.

Students in Jason's high school Geometry classes work through playlists at their own pace, receiving real-time targeted intervention from their teacher and instant feedback from a variety of sources including: Formative, EDPuzzle, Khan Academy, Quizizz, and Kahoot.

While Jason will showcase how the model works in a mathematics classroom, audience members will leave understanding how to adapt it to fit just about any subject or grade level.

Jason Appel is a high school math teacher with 21 years of experience teaching in public schools in New York City and Rhode Island, as well as a FuseRI Fellow. He has presented at Tech and Learning Live, BPLC (Blended and Personalized Learning Conference), iNACOL, and numerous other conferences around New England. He is obsessed with building playlists that allow his students to learn at their own pace and in their own way.
