This workshop will explore a new tools and technologies being used in online learning, including desktop and mobile applications.
As more and more teaching and learning tools and technologies appear on the horizon, the need for careful review of available applications and methods is rising. The Horizon Report is a good place to start, but where do we go from there? This fast-paced workshop is designed for a more advanced audience to review new tools and technologies for possible integration into their online teaching and learning, and to develop a strategy for continuous exposure to cutting edge solutions. Facilitators will present a series of tools and technologies, and illustrate methods for use and instructional design best practices for integrating these tools into the online classroom. Topics explored will include collaborative learning, video/audio, assessment, information visualization, augmented reality and AI. Participants will be required to bring their laptops/ipads/smart phones to this session.
