Using Web Based Tools to Enhance Student Engagement and Collaboration – Chatham University
This presentation will demonstrate two web based tools that can be used to increase student engagement both in online and on the ground courses.
Abstract: Educators today are challenged to provide students with learning activities that promote reflective thinking via web technology. This presentation will demonstrate how two free web based tools were used to enhance student engagement, creativity, and collaboration both in online and on the ground courses. Participants will have the opportunity to explore these tools and share their own ideas of how to incorporate active learning strategies in their classroom settings.
(1) Learn about two free web based technology tools. (2) Discuss ways to utilize web based tools
to enhance student engagement and foster collaborative learning. (3) Consider how these technologies may be implemented both in online and on the ground courses.
Thanks to Joyce for being a great example to us all!
