In this workshop, you will learn ways to keep your classroom learners engaged through the effective use of educational technology. By building tasks and activities that are supported through the use of readily available apps and internet tools, your classroom training will be more interactive, and will build opportunities for a greater sense of accomplishment in your adult learners. We will discuss different options for engaging learners, opportunities to allow greater creativity in your sessions, and how to provide a sense of accomplishment for your learners. In this workshop we will also discuss the changing landscape of educational technology, how to choose the right technology for the purpose, and will also cover topics such as privacy and consent. This workshop is intended for facilitators of face-to-face classroom learning, in-house training, corporate training sessions, or anyone delivering training to groups of people in the classroom.
