At our recent Show & Tell Session Jan Bruce and Carole McCulloch were the presenters.
Jan teaches disability studies using a blended model. She told us how she had recently used Elluminate to record a role play for her students to listen to. The issues addressed in the roleplay were then discussed in a face to face session. Her students found the task engaging and are keen to participate in future role play conducted in this way. We were impressed by the simple sketches she drew on the white board to set the scene for the role play but Jan commented that she is keen to enhance future activities by greater use of images.
Carole's presentation was about how to use the technique of appreciative enquiry when conducting an online classrooms session. We enjoyed a very interactive session as she demonstrated this process.
We finished with a paired brainstorming activity where members of the group were encouraged to come up with their own idea about how they could use an online classroom with their learners. It was a lot of fun!!!!
