Gizmos are an incredibly flexible teaching tool that you can use in a variety of ways, including small group work, individual exploration, and whole class or whole group instruction.

This video gives you a peek into a real classroom to see what teaching with Gizmos can look like using whole class instruction. You will learn how you can effectively use Gizmos in a classroom with only a projector and a computer.

Whole class instruction best practices include:

  • Share control of the classroom dynamics

  • Ask students to verbalize their thinking
