Using VoiceThread to Promote Student-Centered Learning

STANDARD SESSION (45-60 minutes)

     Dr. Dan Reardon - Assistant Professor of English & Technical Communication; Missouri S&T
     Beth Reardon - Educational Technology; Missouri S&T

Tags: voicethread; online instruction; active learning

Audience: Higher Education

Time, Date, and Location: 1:00 - 2:00 p.m., Thursday, March 16, BCH 115

This session will be a workshop in VoiceThread, an interactive educational tool that allows instructors and students to record their responses to a variety of uploaded media, and participate in an asynchronous discussion. VoiceThread offers advantages over online discussion boards because of its visual nature; instructors can upload videos, images, or other media, and ask students questions about the media. Using their computers’ webcams and microphones, instructors and students can provide oral responses to questions and ideas, and engage in lively discussions on an array of topics. VoiceThread can therefore promote active, student-centered learning, and may also enhance both instructor and student presence in online delivery methods.

Join us to learn this FREE and user-friendly tech tool to create videos for your classroom—parents LOVE video of their student at work! Better yet, teach your students to use this tool for storytelling, re-teaching, and demonstrating what they have learned. This could also be a great tool for student-led conferences!

Video Analysis with Using a Smartphone - Students as Active Learners

STANDARD SESSION (45-60 minutes)

Presenter: Becky Treu - Associate Professor of Physical Sciences; Moberly Area Community College

Tags: algebra based physics; inquiry based labs; 2D motion diagrams; kinematics

Audience: Higher Education; K-12 Education

Time, Date, and Location: 3:40 - 4:40 p.m., Thursday, March 16, BCH 115

Students often struggle making the connection between 2-D motion diagrams and "real life" motion. An easy way to bridge this gap is to allow students to physically make a 2-D motion diagram themselves while incorporating technology. In this workshop, participants will perform an inquiry based lab utiltizing smartphones, freeware (Tracker),and themselves to produce 2-D motion diagrams. This lab can be geared towards any physics course (conceptual, algebra based, or calculus based).
