This session will focus on using tech to teach to the affective domain, which supports four of the Student Success factors that the RP Group identified in its study of California community college students. We will begin by focusing on the Student Success factors Valued, Connected, Engaged, and Nurtured. After sharing my thoughts on teaching to the affective domain, I will offer guidelines for selecting tech, then dive into software and strategies. The technologies discussed will include Canvas and Zoom, both of which are provided to California community colleges, as well as free software. Session participants will be invited to take part in interactive demonstrations and to share their own practices.
