Curriculum, Testing, and New Technologies: The Way Ahead
Workshop: Communicative and
Activities with Computers
This session will introduce participants to ways to use computers and the Internet for active learning. With static web pages, students tend to be passive and focus more on where to click than on the content of the current page. Much more is possible, both with and without Internet access. We'll explore how to use online discussion and keypals, teacher- and student-generated interactive exercises, some of the peer-editing features in Microsoft Word, ready-made templates in PowerPoint, and more. The goal will be to give you tools and techniques to use in your next class.
