Hi John - Hope your summer is going well! I wanted to update you on our free webinars and hope you (or somebody at JChemDL) can lead one this fall. Interested?
We've had three Tech Talks so far - one on Interactive Notebooks, Moodle, and Digital Storytelling. You can get to the recordings of those by clicking on the Web Archive link.
You can see all our upcoming events by clicking on the Events tab. The next TechTalk topic is Using Wikis. We've got lots more topics to cover in the next few months - technology, pedagogy, content knowledge, all sorts of fun stuff! Any ideas on additional topics or feedback you have would be greatly appreciated! Kim
Hi John - Thanks so much for adding that comment - I've been thinking of using Moodle when I teach in the fall - I figure that using a platform to run the class that these preservice teachers might actually be able to use when they get into the classroom is a good thing. Ohio State's course mgt system is called Carmen but nobody can use it outside of OSU.
I think it would be a good idea to start a group for College Faculty or maybe Teacher Educators or maybe both. Thanks again - Kim
