Come learn how to use Web 2.0 tools to update all aspects of courses including syllabi, rubrics, and pitfalls of using web tools. Leave with a boss list of free Web 2.0 tools!
Today’s students are not only comfortable using technology; they are considered “digital natives.” From tablets and smart phones to social media sites and YouTube channels, the millennial generation is no stranger to the developing trends in technology.
In response to changes in student culture, current educational practices now include the integration of technology in the academic classroom. Web 2.0 tools, can be utilized to create active learning environments wherein students are held more responsible for engaging and participating in their own learning process, thus creating higher level learning. The question becomes how to integrate technology into cf2f, rigorous assessable learning. This workshop teaches participants how to manage these tasks.
Goals include introducing eight, free, Web 2.0 tools that can be utilized in F2F, online, or hybrid courses. Examples of how to use these tools to create active learning environments, flipped classrooms, enriching discussions, and modernizing traditional assignments will be shared. In addition, presenters will explain some pitfalls of using technology in the classroom including managing crashed sites, confronting student resistance, maintaining quality of work, creating appropriate rubrics, facilitating group work, and overall course policies. Finally, presenters will share sample syllabi and assignments.
BYOD! Participants will learn by doing! Interactive links to Web 2.0 applications will be integrated into the presentation. Presenters will share samples of student work created utilizing the various web tools.
