Truly effective educational activites must provide opportunites for both synchronous and asynchronous activities if the students are to maintain the locus of power in achieving their educational outcomes.
With a range of 3D spatial technologies now available for free download, and others at cost, you can now explore your world in a virtual environment. Virtual field trips allow for a wealth of understanding of places anywhere in the world, whether for studying your local area, Asian studies or global investigations. This workshop will demonstrate and allow hands on access to virtual 3D technologies such as GeoFlight, Google Earth, NASA World Wind and Microsoft
This study establishes a theoretical basis for an extension of a previous: typology of design elements of online courses to include elements specifically impacting students with disabilities. The prevalence of these special design elements is then examined from the results of a survey of existing online courses. It was found that these courses do generally include design elements necessary to meet the basic needs of students with disabilities, but that as more students with more sophisticated needs enroll in online courses, the design of these courses must further evolve.
Electronic portfolios extend the traditional paper-based portfolio concept to allow digital work and achievements to be organised and presented to different audiences for different purposes. This session will show how teachers can extend and enrich the use of e-portfolios to address the thinking skills, assessment and learning styles areas using myportfolio, Editure
