Peter-Michael Osera, CTL Graduate Fellow, Computer and Information Science

Wednesday, March 27 | 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Graduate Student Workshops

Location: Graduate Student Center 305

Summary: Technology in the classroom goes beyond presentation software like PowerPoint.
From websites and wikis, to videos-on-demand, educational technology promises to help enhance and democratize the classroom. However, what educational problems can we solve with technology, and how can we best utilize technology to solve them? In this workshop, we will discuss the pragmatics of educational technology —- What sorts of educational technology are available? What problems can they solve? How can we use them effectively? —- as well as share our own experiences with using educational technology in the classroom.
