Relevance should be an essential and achievable goal for the schools, educators and content providers who are involved in educating 21st century learners. All content―test prep included―must be culturally relevant, accessible through preferred digital platforms, fun and engaging, and reinforce the core competencies needed for success in college and career.

In this session, educators will learn about Shmoop’s digital content platform and library of materials that truly “speak student” and will gain proven strategies to deploy digital content to achieve positive outcomes including increased engagement, motivation, equity, creativity, and enjoyment of education―plus outstanding results in school and on the ACT!

Utah’s students use Shmoop to prepare for the ACT and have achieved some of the nation’s highest scores on the test for the past several years. Did you know Shmoop also has a full library of digital content in all subjects, including literature, science, math and social studies, as well as business, life skills, career prep, preparation for every AP test, and much more. All content is presented with a consistent goal in mind: to be relevant and engaging to today’s learners.

At the end of this session, participants will reflect on the following question: How can I use digital content, along with my instructional practices, to strengthen motivation and engagement for my students? You will consider techniques for presenting content in a way that students truly want to engage with, so they are driven to learn and achieve.
