With zero prep time, classroom teachers across North America have just become online instructors. COVID-19 has forced school closures across the country, thrusting millions of teachers and students into the world of online learning – like it or not.
With students now easily availing themselves of distractions like video games, social media, NetFlix and music while you are instructing them, not to mention interruptions from siblings, dogs and parents, the need for engaging delivery has never been greater. Technology can help! Zoom and Google Meet, both popular options for virtual classrooms, offer great features. But other apps and platforms offer additional options to enhance engagement and to make the teacher’s job a little easier.
In this 90-minute webinar, Master Trainer Eric Clark will call upon his background as a media teacher, district technology integration specialist, administrator and media entrepreneur to help teachers sort through tools that might be useful in their classrooms – while opening their minds to other ways to harness technology.
Each attendee will receive Eric’s comprehensive list of more than 100 technology web resources to use immediately.
- Apply new technology tools and/or strategies to enrich technology integration
- Build and foster relationships in an online setting
- Learn how to use online video to support lessons rather than sustain them
- Identify different tools to help students become authors, producers and creators of multi-media projects
- Learn how to create internal motivation using technology integration
- Unlock the power of “reverse mentoring” in an online setting
