Developing and Using Online Activities Confidently
The workshop will be mainly a hands-on workshop with several stations covering online activities such as Kahoot!, Quizziz, Edpuzzle and more as active assessment tools. There will be a presentation at the beginning covering information about the online activities with one or two activities for the whole group to participate. The stations will focus on two things - playing and creating. Laptops will be needed as participants and creators. This will give people a chance to discuss pros and cons, get a feel for creating products out of online activities that can be sharable, basically build self-confidence in becoming creative teachers. Teachers in the areas of K-12, college/universities and labs will find this beneficial in different types of settings such as classroom, club activities or lab tools. It is recommended that they bring their own laptops.
