Atomic Learning users can now find a collection of existing training specifically related to effective online teaching and learning in one location through a new series of spotlights on technology professional development topics. As online and blended learning courses have become more prevalent, the differences between online and face-to-face instruction have come to the forefront. Effective online teaching and learning requires building knowledge of online tools and becoming comfortable with technology—whether participating in training, integration in the classroom, or providing feedback.
Through the effective online teaching and learning Spotlight, educators will identify emerging practices for delivering effective online instruction, reflect on how they can include those practices in their teaching, and know where to locate technology how-to support materials. Atomic Learning’s new Effective Online Discussions workshop is one of the featured tools in this Spotlight, along with classroom projects on internet safety and cyberbullying. How-to reference tools showcased include Blackboard, Moodle, Google Docs and Desire2Learn, along with a collection of Assistive Technology tutorials.
The new Spotlight series will continue to feature different topics ranging from Global Collaboration to Video Story Telling. Atomic Learning users will have a defined path to best impact student achievement and professional development efforts.
