Integrating Video and Multimedia into your Classroom
Introducing new concepts through a variety of relevant graphics, audio and texts leads to deeper learning and understanding. This is especially beneficial to the learner when they can personalize their experience by choosing content and controlling the pace at which they move through that content. This workshop will highlight ways in which educators can use multimedia tools to make their classroom more engaging for their learners, as well as how to plan your lessons to integrate these tools. Teachers will also explore videos and exercises using a Maths program called KA LITE (Khan Academy Lite), an open-source software version of Khan Academy for offline situations.
