CTLT Dialogues

The Blog of the Center for Teaching & Learning with Technology

Interactivity

Posted by ctlt on May 27, 2009

Kim Bauman of the Center for Teaching and Learning with Technology presented on the use of various interactive methods and resources, and led participants in hands-on activity using laptops to explore those resources.

Kim began by using Turning Point Software’s audience response system (“clickers”) to ask participants about their attitudes toward a variety of social networking sites, and student use of those sites. Kim reminded her audience that today’s students have always lived in a world rich with online resources and interactive technologies. She presented on Twitter and “tweeting,” and then showed some YouTube clips on how active Twitter has become in recent months.

Another YouTube resource Kim discussed with participants is YouTube EDU, which is a place for colleges and universities to upload video clips and make them widely available.

Apple offers a more highly structured and formalized service for making educational video materials (such as course lectures) available online through iTunes and iTunesU.

Participants spent the remainder of this session exploring interactive online resources that interested them, with guidance and suggestions from Kim and other CTLT staff.
