Instructors and students use an array of technologies throughout their daily lives. How can we make use of these tools for educational purposes? Which technologies are you and your students using to support teaching and learning?
The Educational Technology Series delivers two sessions a semester that are structured to discuss those questions, raise new questions and make plans to move forward. Past session topics have included:
- Wikis for SFU Educators
- Wikipedia and the Post-Secondary Classroom
- Educational Uses of Second Life
- Blogs in the Classroom
- The Backchannel: Twitter, Google Moderator and classroom communications
What kinds of sessions are you interested in seeing? Would you like repeats of some of the sessions we’ve done, or new topics such as:
- Google suite (google docs, spreadsheet and drawing tools)
- Mobile learning
- Online mind mapping
- alternatives to PowerPoint (such as Prezi)
- other ideas?
Please leave a comment on this posting with what you would like to see us focus on. Or, if you know of any educational uses of any new or innovative technologies please leave that in the comments. We’re always looking for new implementations to celebrate!
