Educators must hear from all students to teach effectively, yet in many classes only extroverts and the extra-motivated contribute. Jeff Carpenter, Assistant Professor of Education and Director of the Teaching Fellows Program at Elon University, discusses ways that technology can be used to involve more learners via the backchannel, a virtual conversation concurrent with live spoken remarks.

The session explores a number of back-channeling tools and methods that provide opportunities for more students to voice their perspectives and provide instructors with feedback.
