Translating Classroom Interactions in the Virtual Classroom
Abstract: A librarian, instructional technologist, and faculty member collaborated to create an interactive, “stations” activity used with in-person and online courses. Over six semesters, we used stations to create opportunities for student engagement, group collaboration, and a deeper understanding of concepts. We will share successful methods of creating engaging online stations that help students work together, learn content, and develop technology skills using the Moodle Book module, a series of Google apps and K-12 friendly technologies like Blendspace TES, Zaption and Edmodo. Attendees will be provided with demonstrations of the online stations and have access to an online example of the stations and how various technologies are used. This session will illustrate how progressive virtual stations can work for online courses as students collaborate to learn skills and concepts which are broken down into separate, ordered learning modules.
