Replicating Classic Classroom Activities for Remote Instruction with Tech Tools

Session 6: 10:30–12:00 PM, Zoom Room 8

Abstract

This workshop will introduce ways to use a number of tech tools to replicate in remote instruction many of the tried-and-true interactive activities we do in adult education that keep students engaged by supporting student-centered instruction, student autonomy, and student choice. The activities discussed include think-pair-share, four corners, drills and dialogs, practice activities such as matching and ordering, pair and group brainstorming, jigsaws, collaborative and cooperative learning activities, individual and group projects and presentations, formative assessment tools, and games. The sites/apps and functions of synchronous and asynchronous online teaching tools that will be demonstrated include break-out rooms, Google Suite including Jamboards, Word Wall, online interactive worksheets, digital flashcards, comic strip sites, presentation apps, and game apps. Participants will put themselves in the position of students in trying out some of the tools and will see demonstrations for others. Attendees will leave the workshop with new ideas for using tools they already use as well as a few new tools they can use to enhance their remote instruction.
