About This Class

COURSE DESCRIPTION

Engaging and motivating students are always very challenging task faced by educators. To make matter even more challenging is the fact that the average concentration span of adult learners are very short (around 9 seconds). Therefore it is incumbent upon the educators to find ways to gain the learners attention using creative strategies such as interactive learning activities in the classroom.

You may have heard people say something like this: “You don’t need to be very good with technology to do very good things with technology.” That’s the basic premise and promise of this course. This course will introduce several free web-based digital tools that can be used to design interactive learning activities that are simple and fun yet elegant and impactful. 

The advantages of using web-based tools are very obvious: no download and installation are required. Most of the web-based tools are also easy to use. In this workshop, several tools will be covered that would help educators to create interactive learning activities such as ice breaking session, brainstorming, discussion, reflection, and much more.

WHAT WILL YOU LEARN?

  • Selected free web-based tools to create interactive learning activities
  • Examples of interactive learning activities for student engagement

WHO IS THE TARGET AUDIENCE?

  • Educators (teachers, lecturer, faculty)
  • Corporate trainers
