At the MMVC15 – Moodle Moot Virtual Conference hosted by Nellie Deutsch

Recordinghttp://www.wiziq.com/online-class/2878405-mmvc15-writing-and-tablet-voice-tools

Slides:

This presentation updates earlier ones on how to use the voice affordances of iPads and other mobile devices to make writing as well as teaching writing and giving feedback increasingly easier and more effective when students are using such devices than when voice tools are not appropriately enlisted. The presenter learns more every day about how to use these tools in teaching, and here he conveys what he has learned in hopes it will help other teachers of writing whose students are challenged when trying to write effectively on mobile devices.

Aug 5 first of two SCoPE webinars for Creating Engaging Online Learning Activities

Welcome to Creating Engaging Online Learning Activities! We’ve had a big hiatus from SCoPE seminars, and it’s so exciting to be opening up the conversations again!

About this seminar

There are endless ideas for engaging learners online. However, turning those ideas into activities that can be implemented smoothly is a challenge. There are many details to consider, and potentially overlook!

The idea for this SCoPE seminar developed through reflections on a series of online workshops for educators across the British Columbia post-secondary system. In these workshops we experience the benefits of developing and testing online learning activities in a supportive but critical community of peers. It’s time to open up those opportunities to everyone!

During this 2-week seminar we will explore, discuss, and create engaging online learning activities together.

Week 1:  Exploring Options, Selecting Approaches Week 2:  Building and Testing OLAsThere are two webinars scheduled as part of this 2-week seminar discussion. They will take place in the SCoPE Blackboard Collaborate Room: http://urls.bccampus.ca/scopeevents. As always, the synchronous sessions will be recorded for those who are unable to attend.
