Start time: Thursday, April 18th, 2013 @ 1:00 pm - 1:20 pm HST
Duration: 20 mins
Even during a period of decreases in budgets and increases in costs, institutions must still maintain the goal of educating students. While the online classroom enables us to reach larger groups of students and employ the most effective instructors without the hindrance of remote geographic locations we must still acknowledge a population that contains various learning modalities. In this digital age, we continue to search for effective methods to reach all of our students. Creatively utilizing available online educational technology allows us to address the issues of our diverse learning population. With the proper tools, we can create learning spaces that will adapt to the various learning styles of our students and will optimize their educational experience.
This presentation will discuss technologies used to teach effective online mathematics courses and the importance of creating an environment that builds effective support and motivates the online learner. We will discuss creative ways for the online instructor to best utilize their online technology to create interactive learning environments that motivates the learner to participate while increasing their ability to learn independently. A number of case studies will be presented in order to share effective strategies that have shown to be most effective in the online classroom.
Attendees to this presentation will see how educational technology can be used to encourage students to believe in themselves, to promote multiple learning styles and to support independent learning.Please register or sign in to access this session.
