Part two of my presentation at the On Course National Conference focused on “blogwrothy” interactive technologies. Specifically we used Padlet, Socrative, Kahoot, and Google Drive.
Thankfully the technology gods were in our favor for the second session and it went a little more smoothly. I hope everyone enjoyed getting to be “students” participating in the workshop (or class) with their devices.
I know there were a lot of resources presented, I hope at least one of them “spoke” to you and may be something you would like to implement. Please let me know if you have any additional questions about how to use these tools, I would love to keep the conversation going!
I presented two workshops at the On Course National Conference. The first workshop was dedicated to reasons why technology is an effective tool for learning and teaching, and we planned to create blogs and show the power of connection with blogging.
When using technology there is always the possibility that you may have some technological issues…. WELL… that is exactly what happened today! I had to really work on accepting the things I can’t change and figuring out ways to move beyond the barriers. So, I greatly apologize to all of the participants and am sorry we were not able to get through the activity.
Here is the presentation. Please take a look and also read the slide notes for additional information. I would love to help you with creating and using class blogs. Feel free to leave a comment/reply to this post with any questions you may have!
Today I am honored to be presenting at the 2015 Online Teaching Conference in San Diego. My presentation is focused on the students’ experience in the online classroom and how we as faculty can provide a positive engaging experience. This is an interactive session in which attendees will be actively participating through small group discussions.
Today I presented a double workshop at the On Course National Conference. What an awesome experience!!! Although there were multiple technical difficulties (as expected), and we ran out of time (also something to expect with tech), the energy and enthusiasm was still contagious. I would say the Engagement and Empowerment did lead to Learning!
Below is ALL the information and links from the session. Please pass on the information and let me know in the comments if you have any comments or questions. I am happy to help!!!
Part 1- Session 6D, 8:15-9:30 AND Part 2- Session 7D, 9:45-11am
“Bring Your Own Device”, or “BYOD”, is what you will be doing in this interactive active-learning workshop on using technology in the classroom. You will be building a blog, using web-based students response systems, and incorporating the collaborative power of Google Drive. You will leave this workshops with multiple tech tools for immediate use in the classroom along with a Personal Learning Network of fellow On Course Bloggers.
Today I presented a workshop at the MSJC Academy on using student blogs in the classroom. Below are the presentations.
If you attended this session please leave me a comment and let me know what you learned, what you still have questions on, or if you choose to use blogs I would love to hear how you implemented them in your class!
