Spring Course: Remote Learning with Zoom, Screencasts and Video

April 6th - April 10th

One Week Spring Online Course

In this one week course, EdTechTeacher instructor Greg Kulowiec will explore how teachers can leverage video from two powerful approaches to support remote learning during extended school closings. Through a combination of synchronous and asynchronous video, course participants will develop a rich skill set to run both live meetings, develop pre-recorded video content and facilitate communication & collaboration amongst students with video. The course will highlight: video conferencing with Zoom to support connection and live instruction, pre-recorded video content via teacher screencasts across multiple devices and varied approaches to student generated video to support communication, reflection and collaboration.
