Putting the Personal Touch on Your Classroom

Humanizing your classroom can help draw students into the social side of learning. Research has indicated that learning is a social process and when students make a connection to their professor and others they are more likely to be retained. There are a number of free or cheap tools that can help you in giving your classroom a personal touch.
