Choosing Technology: What Works and What Doesn’t
a webinar in English
Choosing Technology for online teaching can be challenging. A teacher may have a choice of platform or may be constrained with certain platforms or technologies. Choosing to introduce too much technology can be overwhelming for students and teachers alike. Additionally, choosing the correct technology to enhance curriculum can take trial and error and it may not be possible to repeat a course or technology use to know which technology works best to create active online lessons and courses. In this webinar, the presenter will review different technologies, both online and mobile, and discuss how they can work well with certain skills and courses to enhance learning online and lessen the technological learning curve.
