Are your students bored, confused, unmotivated, or disengaged after 20 minutes of instruction? Use these smartphone brain breaks to wake up their brains! Students jump at the chance to use their cell phones during class, so give them something productive to do with them while giving their brains a break at the same time. These breaks provide a quick way to engage students and increase the activity in their brains. After just a few minutes of these activities, students will be awake, focused, and ready to begin learning again. It's like a reset switch for their brains!
These breaks are great for review days, especially in 90-minute classes. They are no prep and require no downloading of additional apps or software. They work great as ice breakers for the beginning of the year or as time fillers for when you have just a few minutes left of class. The students can choose the breaks (they are hyperlinked in a PowerPoint presentation) for an added element of intrigue. The breaks come with additional tips and alternatives for use in the notes sections of the slides, and a handout with additional suggestions is included.
Wake up your students (and yourself) with these fun smartphone activities today!
