Webinar: How are we engaging every learner?: Sharing stories of effective practice.

Posted by Karen Spencer

When: 25 Jul 2012

Venue: Adobe Connect, 3.45pm - 4.45pm | http://connect.vln.school.nz/vpldsessions/

Fees: Free

Organiser: Enabling e-Learning and VPLD

Contact: Hazel Owen or Karen Melhuish Spencer

This online workshop is an opportunity organised by the Enabling e-Learning and Virtual Professional Development (VPLD) communities.

Join us to explore:

  • what to think about when designing your courses - how do we help our students bring and use their own knowledge and prior learning?
  • examples from schools where students have been enabled to reflect and manage their own learning.

NOTE: This webinar builds on an earlier session organising in VPLD; you are welcome to access this first part but do not need to have done so to attend this sesson: Part 1: Engaging reluctant learners, with Clarrie Yates.



The meeting will be facilitated in Adobe Connect: http://connect.vln.school.nz/vpldsessions/ 

If you haven't used Adobe Connect before it would be a good idea to give it a go beforehand and experiment. This video shows you exactly how to do it, and how to use Adobe Connect once you get in there, so I would highly recommend you watch it: http://ellinzproject.blip.tv/file/4386660/. (Please note that this is a video that was made for the ELLINZ ESOL students so it is a little slow, but shows really clearly  how to access and use Adobe Connect, including how to login as a guest, how to talk, and how to use the whiteboard).

The link to Adobe will open at 3.15pm on the day and you should pop in in advance of the session to test your gear. Also:
- Please have your headset at hand
- Please don't have the "Talk" button clicked when you are not talking
- Please contact Hazel (hazelowendmc) directly via SKYPE chat if you have any on the day issues...

Please RSVP by the 14th July by filling in the sign up sheet. Thanks.
