Transcript of "Technology for online learning"

  1. 1. Resources for Online Teaching and Learning Rainey-Camper JTC 413 1
  2. 2. Introduction • This presentation is a brief look at some ideas for making online teaching and learning a better experience, through technology. • Online teaching and learning is available for almost anyone who wants to put in the effort to either 1) create a class, or 2) participate in a class, using online resources. • Free Resources are readily available, from Weebly to Google to a wealth of others.

  4. 4. Good Old Weebly Having created several websites for assignments during my journey into Adult Learning and Teaching, “Good Old Weebly” has saved me on several occasions with their easy style; the intuitive nature of creating a good looking website saved valuable time and effort. And I recently found that Good Old Weebly also offers a site for educational/classroom use: http://education.weebly.com/ Rainey-Camper JTC 413 4
  5. 5. What can I do with Weebly? From the website http://education.weebly.com • • • • Easily create a classroom website & blog Manage your students' accounts Accept homework assignments online Keep your parents up to date For an idea of what one teacher has done using education.weebly, visit this site: http://cnapolitano.weebly.com/index.html Rainey-Camper JTC 413 5

  7. 7. Google+ Hangouts on Air Video, Voice, Live-Streaming http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TnHWDOxDYY0 • This is an 8 minute youtube video by Ronnie Bincer, “The Hangout Helper” to help you better understand the “on air” aspect of this program; a live broadcast which can include up to 10 participants, and be viewed later as a youtube video. • I tried this out in another class, and although the learning curve was fairly steep, the ability to talk, share documents, and otherwise interact with the participants that you have invited is a good tool. NOTE: All participants need to have Google+ accounts. • There is also a link to a 12 minute introduction to the basics of setting up Google + and learning about Hangouts features such as Messaging (Group Chat) and Video Calls, which lead up to the “Hangouts on Air” tutorial. In addition, there is another video (updated Feb. 2014) that is 37 minutes long; https://plus.google.com/u/0/events/c6rt05ggde2j02iht5ej57ogb70 You might note how Google+ (or GooglePlus) is constantly updating, making it harder (for me) to get comfortable with only using it occasionally. To stay up on the features, you should use it often. Rainey-Camper JTC 413 7
  8. 8. Other Ways to Use Google Besides Free Community Forums, you can locate other resources for using Google to teach and learn, with just a little searching. For example: Eight ways of using Google Drive with a textbook, Andreas Hofer (3:35min/ Feb. 2014) • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AK4cvlTNnQ0#t=12 Google Apps for Education • http://eduguide.googleapps.com/ Eleven Steps to Create a Google Plus Community for Your Class, Med Kharbach (founder and editor of Educational Technology and Mobile Learning) • http://www.educatorstechnology.com/2013/05/11-steps-to-create-google-plus.html Rainey-Camper JTC 413 8
