Activators and summarizers are important components of both teaching and learning. 

Techniques for reactivating prior knowledge and introducing new concepts, or promoting the retention of knowledge through engaging activities, can help students focus their learning and then move knowledge into long-term memory. Come learn the best ways to introduce them as well as how mobile devices can support the process. During the webinar you will have the chance to practice with these strategies. Also, think about some of your favorites to share with the group!
