Personal and Professional Tech Let’s talk about securing your data Online Google Drive Microsoft One Drive Dropbox Offline External Hard Drive Thumbdrive
Personal and Professional Tech Know that nothing online is truly secure Recognize that your approach to privacy is likely much more conservative than your students’ • We want our students to get jobs and succeed. Their digital footprint needs to be clean • Know how to use Google searches
Technology in the Classroom Do you allow students to use technology during your class? Trends: • Traditional Laptop • Tablet computers • Google Chromebook Good and bad of each?
Create an e-Text ✤ You can create your own electronic text to share with your students ✤ They can use this on any of their devices ✤ ✤ ✤ Apple i. Books Author is incredible in the way it allows you to create your own text Book. Creator is another way (i. Pad app or www. bookcreator. com) Have your students CREATE their own, unique content, instead of simply consuming the content you give them
Web 2. 0 Resources ✤ Weebly (you or your students build a website easily) ✤ Poll Everywhere ✤ Google Drive (awesome for student surveys) ✤ Kahoot (it’s good and it’s bad) ✤ Socrative ✤ Skype (bring a guest into your classroom)
Online Teaching and Learning ✤ What works? ✤ What needs improvement? ✤ Successes, failures? Share your story
Using D 2 l ✤ How can you improve your courses? ✤ Look into doing a Quality Matters workshop ✤ Your university could pay for it ✤ Improves your course design ✤ Gives you ideas on how to integrate your content online
QM Takeaways ✤ Clearly state expectations and objectives to your students, and make sure they are relevant to the level of the course (1 st year, senior, graduate level, etc. ) ✤ Ensure you have assessments that measure these objectives ✤ Make sure the grading policy is clear and transparent ✤ ✤ Explain clearly how the instructional materials will be used, make sure they are accessible Activities in the course need to support active learning
QM Takeaways ✤ ✤ Make sure the expectations for students’ and faculty’s response times are clearly stated in the course. Follow through Make sure the tools support learner engagement Ensure students know how to receive technical support. Put that information somewhere very visible Accessibility to all technologies needs to be addressed
The shift to M-learning ✤ ✤ Mobile learning is considered to be a big component in the ever-evolving field of distance education Tablets and phones will be used more frequently to access course materials
Video and D 2 L ✤ D 2 L supports direct upload of files, but it is problematic ✤ ✤ ✤ If you don’t use a universally standard file type, students will have difficulties opening it It won’t stream, they have to download it first Youtube is my preferred method ✤ Streaming is key ✤ Embed your video right into D 2 L ✤ Make video unlisted if you don’t want others to come across it
Engagement Strategies ✤ Use Flipgrid!!!
