Abstract:

Online classes pose special challenges for teaching and learning. Notable among these challenges is the tendency for students to feel like anonymous spectators rather than active, collaborative participants. MOFET International’s Online Academy invites you to join Dr. Danny Glick, Director of Pedagogical Implementation at Edusoft, Research Affiliate at University of California, Irvine’s Digital Learning Lab, and the editor of Targeted Interventions for Student Success in Online Courses, for an interactive and engaging webinar on how to engage students in technology-enhanced learning environments using social media.
Join Dr. Glick to gain valuable insights on:
• How to use social media for educational purposes
• How to improve student persistence and increase student motivation using social media
• How to assess students in technology-enhanced learning environments
