Goal: To Understand the Material

How?

Get Students to Interact


Inside the classroom l.jpg

Inside the Classroom

  • Have in-class questions on the material covered

    • Students know if they understand the new material

    • Participation Points

    • Clickers make this easy


Teaching problems involving calculations l.jpg

Teaching Problems Involving Calculations

  • Step-by-Step is best

    • PowerPoint is used effectively when each step appears separately, not all at once

    • The old-fashioned overhead is effective, too


Outside the classroom l.jpg

Outside the Classroom

  • Multimedia Supplements

    • Animations (for example, of cell processes)

      • Great because they get students to interact with and picture the material in a way that books cannot

    • Diagrams and Pictures

      • Drawing


More outside the classroom l.jpg

More Outside the Classroom

  • Immediate Feedback Questions

    • Several tries

    • Know immediately if doing the problem right or wrong

    • Classmates can help each other

    • Suggest that students print the questions out


Online vs face to face teaching l.jpg

Online vs. Face to Face Teaching

  • Students are not likely to print out all of the online course material and so are likely to spend less time studying for online courses

  • Hearing concepts explained aloud helps understanding


More about online texts l.jpg

More About Online Texts

  • Underlining, highlighting, and marking pages is easier with paper textbooks

    • If the online text offers these capabilities, you have to make sure students know about them

    • You should also offer students suggestions on how to use them


One last note l.jpg

One Last Note

  • It is extremely important to explain to students how you expect them to use technology

    • Just as you are new to using technology to teach, students are new to using it for learning

    • Online lecture notes, for example


Slide12 l.jpg

Discussion in class

  • Make discussion as active as possible

    • Select class “discussion leaders”

    • Post questions before class in syllabus or over Web CT

    • Do not plan to discuss “right or wrong” answers; plan to debate


Slide13 l.jpg

Moving discussion online

  • Set up class discussion boards

    • Easy to construct in Web CT

    • Choose questions that require argument, not just recitation

    • Make expectations clear

    • Choose “pro,” “con,” and assessment groups

    • Be an active player


Slide14 l.jpg

Moving discussion online, cont.

  • Initiate class chat rooms for discussion

    • Set a specific time and place

    • Begin by setting ground rules for class

    • Offer participation or extra credit points

    • Make a connection b/w class activities and online discussion


Slide15 l.jpg

Virtual laboratories

  • Move ‘hands on’ exploration to the Web

    • Use of interactive games

    • Problem solving exercises

    • Simulations

    • Cost effective


Slide16 l.jpg

Supplemental lectures

  • Don’t make “Power Pointless”

    • Enhance class lectures or presentations with the use of audio or video files

    • Show graphic simulations, use music clips, or opt for audio files

    • Breaks up the monotony and snaps students back to attention


Slide17 l.jpg

Integrate team activity

  • Move beyond simple group projects or “busy work”

    • Peer editing

    • Semester-long group activities

    • Use of “trivia-style” question and response technique


Slide18 l.jpg

Bring in the ‘real world’

  • Increase relevancy by addressing current, local, or global problems through material

    • Students want to see a “bigger picture”

    • Relate concepts to problems in the news or ideas in their lives

    • Use examples from workplace or news

    • Make a connection between the material and their lives
