I think that professors will love to see you do something with technology. Even if its something that YOU think is mediocre lol. Anyway, if you have a smartboard kids will love it. They loooove to come up and use the smartboard. If you have one in your building, do your lesson in that classroom with the kids you are most comfortable with. Use that as motivation, that they will get to come up and use the pen. Other things you can do if you dont have access to such technology....Make your lesson more engaging and kinesthetic by offering opportunities for movement- like somehow twist it into a game. And motivate the children by letting them know your goal is to test them with this game. It is often a good way to close a lesson (or sometimes begin it). Use things that are tactile and visual, but not things that will make the kids go nuts.
