3 Questions to Ask Before Using a New Digital Resource
Presenter: Michael Windelspecht, Ph.D., Educator, Scientist and Author of 20+ Science Textbooks
July 14th, 12:30 p.m. PST
Description: The scramble to complete the spring semester is over, and now teachers across the country are reimagining what a “traditional” classroom will look like this fall. The challenge is to not only address the learning objectives of the course, but to develop an environment that engages students, many of whom are still novices in the online environment. Digital solutions are plentiful, but when and how should they be used? Through his work as an educator, author, and consultant, Michael Windelspecht has worked with numerous faculty to develop an effective transition to the digital world. This talk will explore the three questions that instructors need to ask before they decide to implement a digital resource in their classroom, and in the process, create an environment that reduces stress on both the faculty member and the student.
This talk will be a review of my earlier post this year on using digital resources in the classroom. After the conference I will provide a link to the presentation when it is available.
