Web 2.0 Tools for Lifelong Learning in Online Courses
E-Learning As a Path to Lifelong Learning
Constant change is emerging as the new normal.
To survive and thrive, organizations and individuals must be able to adjust, and enhance their knowledge and skills to meet evolving needs.
This means the most important thing your students can learn is how to learn.
In Web 2.0 Tools for Lifelong Learning in Online Courses, Dr. Joanna “Joni” Dunlap shows you how to use technology to engage your students and prepare them for lifelong learning.
During this 75-minute seminar you’ll learn:
- The role lifelong learning outcomes have in your students’ education and professional preparation
- How to use Web 2.0 technologies and tools to engage students and prepare them to be lifelong learners.
Teach Your Students to Succeed With Online Learning
Just because your students are tech savvy doesn’t mean they’re effective online learners. In this seminar, you’ll find out how to give your students the skills they need to be successful at self-directed learning while in school. You’ll learn how to do the following:
- Use blogging to get students to reflect on course material
- Use micro-sharing and social networking to get students used to working in a professional community
- Use document co-creation and resource sharing to encourage dialogue and collaboration.
These same practices will benefit your students as they move into the workplace, for today’s employers seek quick and efficient lifelong learners. Web 2.0 techniques are essential career builders, and in this audio online seminar you’ll explore ways to teach your students how to use these tools to maximize their educational and professional success.
