  1. 1. Multimedia Inside andOutside the Classroom21stCentury SkillsThrough the Use of Technology Made AccessibleMary Mardirosian, Ed.D
  2. 2. The Problem I Saw…Incorporating 21stCentury skills has lead to the need andthe desire to use more technologyYet, often instructors are intimidated by technologyOr, they don’t know where to even begin
  3. 3. My Requirements for a GoodSolutionInstructors simply need to require the use of technology.The goal is to incorporate 21stCentury Skills with anyexisting assignment.Your students are already familiar with technology,therefore they will embrace it when you ask them tointegrate it with any assignment.
  4. 4. The Solution I FoundInstructors will also be given examples of assignmentsthat incorporated technology.These assignments include the use of: prezis, comic stripsand cartoons.The tools in technology can also be utilized as tools ininstruction in Higher Education.
  5. 5. A Few Practical Steps InImplementing the SolutionGive students the option to utilize technologyYou do not need to be an actual expertBe open to it
  6. 6. The format the technology isassignedStudents are given a series of links with the suggestion toutilize them for their class presentations.They may be used with both online and onsite classes.

  8. 8. Why these are goodexamples…Please, note: The examples that I suggest are compiledfrom student work.The candidates used different forms of technology fordifferent presentations assigned in various classes thatthey showed in class.The assignment demonstrates learning because ratherthan a “traditional” PowerPoint, students used prezi’s,comics, and even cartoons, in their graduate level MATTESOL classes.
