Generate Deeper Learning through Digital Storytelling
In order to teach others, you have to fully understand the material yourself. Why not apply that concept to your students? If your students must not only repeat the material but also build it into a story via social media so their peers can respond, they will take ownership of their knowledge in a way that traditional testing cannot inspire.
How Can Document Sharing Tools Help Students Collaborate?
Document sharing software is a proven and effective way to facilitate group projects. With capabilities that allow for shared review, editing and other tasks, document sharing improves collaborative learning by making interaction more streamlined, efficient and convenient. It helps accelerate learning and makes group work more meaningful. Learn how to use free programs and setup group projects with this seminar.
How Can I Use Voice Feedback to Improve Student Learning?
Save time and significantly improve student outcomes by using Voice Feedback. Research shows that students value and are far more likely to incorporate voice feedback in completing their assignments than written feedback. We explain the benefits of using voice feedback and walk you through the process of how to incorporate this approach into your teaching.
How Do I Create Engaging Threaded Discussion Questions?
A properly crafted question can engage students’ interest, foster ideas and contributions from other students, and in little time at all help transform what may have been an uninspired or “flat” classroom into a hotbed of learning in which the ideas and comments of one student are quickly built on by another.
How Do I Use VoiceThread for Online Student Discussion?
With the availability of VoiceThread, technology that allows educators to host secure conversations using media that include videos, images or presentations, students can now post comments within a lecture itself. An expert in distance education program development, discusses how VoiceThread can add a whole new element of interaction to an online course.
