Over the past two years, all teachers have been exploring the potential of different e-learning tools to facilitate student collaboration and interaction online and adapt to the new teaching environments. Now we are preparing to go back to the face-to-face (F2F) classroom, and we are likely asking ourselves – are the e-learning tools we used for online mode still applicable in the F2F mode? Will we have to abandon the e-learning tools or can we deploy them in the F2F class to help students shift back to a more familiar classroom learning environment? Will students keep active participation and interaction with the help of online tools in the F2F manner?
This seminar aims to help teachers get ready for the F2F class in the upcoming academic year by re-visiting their course designs and brainstorming innovative uses of EdTech tools. We will focus on an online collaborative tool called Miro, recapping its basic features, and introducing how it has been used in both F2F and online contexts, to support effective teaching and learning activities and achieve different teaching needs and learning goals.
