Workshop 2: Setting Up a Video-rich Classroom Community Using Flipgrid

Video assignments are getting more popular. Using Flipgrid, you can easily set up an online space (grids) for you and students (or even guests) to view and respond to video submissions in multiple formats. By the end of this workshop, you will be able to create and manage your grids. You will also get some inspiration on how to use Flipgrid in various teaching scenarios.

 

Workshop 3: Using Mentimeter to Enhance Student Engagement and Interaction

Student response systems are widely used by teachers to enhance student engagement and facilitate interaction in both online and face-to-face classrooms. At the same time, these systems allow teachers to collect students’ choices instantly and display results in rich visuals and graphics at once. In this workshop, participants will have hands-on practice in using Mentimeter to create interactive presentations and questions, generating attractive graphical results for classroom presentation.

Workshop 6: Using Padlet as a Multimedia Organiser and a Collaborative Learning Tool

Think of Padlet as the whiteboard or bulletin board in your classroom, where you can invite students to post sticky notes of their ideas for brainstorming, or pin up their posters for peer review. You can also think of Padlet as a folder where you organize various types of notes and multimedia files. By the end of this workshop, you will be able to create Padlet of a few common layouts, embed content from the web into it, and export your Padlet. You will also get some inspiration on how to use Padlet for collaborative learning and understand the usage of Padlet from students’ point of views.
