Educational Tools for Online Interactive Teaching and Learning

In view of the shift to online learning and teaching, LTTC is going to roll out 7 workshops on educational tools for online interactive teaching and learning in August and September 2020 with workshop details as follows:

 

Workshop 1: An overview of educational tools for online interactive teaching and learning

This workshop will introduce 6 most popular online applications that create a collaborative environment for interactive teaching and learning. These 6 apps are: Kahoot, Mentimeter, Padlet, Nearpod and Flipgrid.

Workshop material:

 

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 Kahoot 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. “Mentimeter” and “Kahoot!” are two of the popular Student Response Systems. In this workshop, participants will have hands-on practice in using Kahoot! to create interactive presentations and questions, generating attractive graphical results for classroom presentation.

Workshop 6: Using Edpuzzle to create video-based lessons with assessment

If you want to curate your teaching videos into an interactive lesson with assessment activities, Edpuzzle is for you. By the end of this workshop, you will be able to create your video-based lesson, embed assessments, audio notes or comments on it, and know how to track student progress.

Workshop 7: 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 Padlets 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.
