WORKSHOP: Group Work and Collaboration Tools (40 mins)

  • Julia Tungli George Mason University, ITS, Instructional Technologist - Learning Support Services

Abstract

Know what type of assignment or activity that you want to have your students do, but wonder if there is a simpler way to do it using teaching technologies and online learning management system tools? Want to know what technologies and online tools are available (in Mason classrooms or online)? Join us for a quick overview tour of technologies you can use (and why you would) to support these three basic teaching practices: sharing information, checking student understanding in real time or asynchronously, and getting students to work collaboratively. Following the overview, participants will go into breakout sessions to learn more “how to” basics for the technologies or tools of their choice.
