Tutoring with Technology: Say Goodbye to Pen and Paper
Concurrent Session 1
College students use their cell phones for everything. As faculty members have long utilized a variety of teaching and learning strategies which traditionally have been demonstrated through visual examples on a white board or by pen and paper….until now. The innovative use of iPad technology with the Notability App has effectively reinforced the student learning process for students at the post-secondary level.
This presentation will demonstrate the innovative use of iPad technology together with the Notability App to make tutoring sessions more visual, interactive and malleable for students. Notability is a note-taking app that allows users to download Power Points or other faculty provided media/resources and overlay notes, drawings, graphs, formulas, and other visual aides to enhance student understanding. As educators, we are constantly changing our approach to teaching to match the learning styles of our students and the use of Notability embraces their love of technology (phones, iPads, laptops) to expand deeper into topics, allowing for immediate online access and upload for review. Participants will be offered a hands-on experience with the app at the end of the presentation.
Learning Goal: Participants will learn how Notability can be easily used to reinforce student learning in a tutoring environment.
Plan: We will demonstrate the functions of Notability through a projection of the app and a step by step instruction.
Learning Goal: Participants will see how the technology is used in different teaching/tutoring sessions with Deaf/hoh students.
Plan: video clips of tutoring sessions using Zoom and the Notability app on the iPad.
Learning Goal: Participants will experience how easy the app is to use with different kinds of problem solving.
Plan: Participants will have a hands on opportunity to experiment with the app with predetermined problems & handouts.
