  35. 35. Have a Host or Moderator  Orients participants to webinar site  Monitors text chat or backchannel  Feed questions to presenters  Provides tech support for participants and presenter(s)  Possible dialogue partner Tip #1
  36. 36. Yay, we have the best online learning community!!!!
  37. 37. Use Polls  When to use a poll?  Use polls before you provide learning point  Introduce participants to each other  Test knowledge, skill, or experience on topic  Different poll types:  Multiple choice  Multiple answer  Chat question (avoid broad general questions)  Yes/No or Agree/Disagree  Always have in slide and in polling function How often should polls be used? Tip #2
  38. 38. Use your different PODS and screen views Polls Document sharing Q & A Text chat pod & multiple text chat pods Notes pod Video clips Application sharing Tip #3

  40. 40. (Tip 4 Continued): Using Text Chat for Engagement  Different group sizes require different strategies  Don’t always allow chatting especially in large groups because it can be distracting, encourage private chats if needed  Try using the multiple chat pods by dividing participants into groups such as born from January to June and then July to December or to get learners to pick a question that relates to their experience or knowledge  Do not read chat verbatim; highlight comments by skimming and looking for responses that help make teaching point Tip #4
  41. 41. The Zen of Web Delivery  What makes a good virtual classroom presentation?  Include more images and less words  Encourage to simulate a F2F presentation such as to stand when presenting to, have other people in the room with them so that they can get non-verbal feedback (especially if they are new to using the medium for training)  Do not to read a script and use a headset so hands are free  Remember pause and breathe, especially if things do not go as planned  If you are not the presenter then train the presenter on both the technology and tips for success Tip #5
  42. 42. (Tip 5 Continued) Keep Learners Engaged through Scenarios, Videos, and Storytelling in a Virtual environment  Personalize the presentation with stories at beginning and end or use a story to create a thread through the presentation  Use Scenarios  Embed Videos  Pictures and images Tip #5

  45. 45. S 4-MAT LEARNING THEORY A Cycle of Learning that Addresses ALL Learning Styles
  46. 46. Understanding Learning Theories • There are many theories on learning, we will look at the 4-MAT System developed by Dr. Bernice McCarthy from her book, About Learning • Two major elements or movements in how people learn (David Kolb and Kurt Lewin): o Perceiving: How we both experience and take in the experience o Processing: How we react, confront, and become the creators we are meant to be.
  47. 47. Perceiving This line represents how we take in the things we learn.
  48. 48. We perceive in two ways. We sense/feel our experiences and then we think our experiences. Sensing/feeling Thinking
  49. 49. Scholars have describe these two aspects of perceiving in many ways. Sensory (Piaget) Perception (Jung) Subject (Kegan) Heart (Caap) Concrete and Direct Experience (Kolb an Hunt) Apprehension (Dewey) Sensing/Feeling (McCarthy) Representative (Piaget) Judgment (Jung) Object (Kegan) Head (Caap) Abstract Conceptualization (Kolb an Hunt) Comprehension (Dewey) Thinking (McCarthy)
  50. 50. Processing This line represents what we do with what we take in.
  51. 51. Processing We process in two ways: Reflecting and Acting Acting Reflecting We process what we learn, we deal with it in some way that helps us to use it and to integrate it so that it becomes a permanent part of our lives.
  52. 52. Scholars have describe these two aspects of processing in many ways. Extension (Kolb) Extraversion (Jung) Outsight (Jones) Action Mode (Diekman) Doing (McCarthy) Intention (Kolb) Introversion (Jung) Insight (Jones) Receptive Model (Diekman) Reflecting (McCarthy)
  53. 53. Acting Reflecting Sensing/feeling Thinking Why? What?How? If ? Dr. Bernice McCarthy’s 4MAT Learning Cycle
  54. 54. A Cycle of Instruction
  55. 55. Right and Left Mode Processing We know, too, that learning entails interaction between the right and left brain. Right – Operates out of being, comprehends images, seeks patterns, creates metaphors, is simultaneous. Strives to synthesize, consolidate information. Left – Operates best through structure, sequence. Prefers language, is sequential, examines the elements, has number sense. Works to analyse or break down information. http://www.intelliscript.net/test_area/questionnair e/questionnaire.cgi
  56. 56. The interplay between right and left is crucial to higher learning and thinking.
  57. 57. What is your 4MAT learning style? http://www.aboutlearning.com/assessments/learning-type-measure Type Four: Dynamic Learning Doing and feeling. Seeking hidden possibilities, exploring, learning by trial and error, self-discovery. Creating original adaptations. Key question: If? Type One: Imaginative Learning Feeling and watching, seeking personal associations, meaning, involvement. Making connections. Key question: Why? Type Three Common Sense Learning Thinking and doing. Experimenting, building, creating usability. Tinkering. Applying ideas. Key question: How? Type Two: Analytic Learning Listening to and thinking about information; seeking facts, thinking through ideas; learning what the experts think. Formulating ideas. Key question: What?
  58. 58. What’s your learning style?
