Webinar | The Power of Technology to Get Students Thinking

Event

February 10 from 10am to 11am

To support this effort technology is at the ready; indeed for now communicating electronically is the sole option available to very many students and teachers. Yet it has served at most scattered use for this most important purpose of serious student-to-student talking and thinking. Moving entirely online, we observed anticipated positive outcomes plus some further unexpected benefits. This webinar is organized by NAPLeS and the CSCL Community of the International Society of the Learning Sciences. For more information, visit the SALTISE website.
