Since the majority of our students are members of the “wired” generation who already are active producers and consumers of media, instructors are challenged to incorporate relevant and useful media in their lectures. In this webinar, we will look at the impact of technology on learning, based on evidence from brain research. We shall identify “the four C’s” of 21st-century skills and explore how the technologies that our students are already using can be incorporated into the “3 R’s.”
Those registered will be sent logon instructions.
