From this teaching approach, the implementation of relevant technological tools into the classroom was prepared utilizing two unique items – Plickers and Flipgrid. The teaching approach objectives of these tools were (a) to address the changing learning needs of students by enhancing the course engagement, (b) to increase student involvement during lectures, (c) to promote students verbal reflective development outside of class, and (d) to help instructor gauge student understanding of course concepts.
