Engaging Learners With Feedback and Collaborative Learning Environments

Responsive and creative use of technology is a powerful way to improve curriculum and assessment outcomes for students. But how do you successfully apply this technology to drive better learning and innovation in the classroom?

In this webinar, we will take a look at recent practices and research on the use of technology, including newer tools such as Skype in the classroom and Minecraft that will support teachers in effective integration of curricula and assessment in classrooms. We will discuss how you can leverage technology to engage your students and develop student-centered curriculum that will ensure they develop their innovation, creativity, and 21st century skills through deep learning. Specifically, we will review how you can use technology to do the following:

  • Connect and engage learners,
  • Personalize instruction,
  • Support student collaboration, and
  • Use problem-based learning to drive greater understanding.
