Description

Facilitators in the Playroom will share their ideas and demonstrate how to use the following tools:

Augmented Reality Sandbox - Dr. Liann Gallagher

An Augmented Reality (AR) Sandbox creates a unique experience for students to explore topography and the world around them. This tool uses open source technology, a short throw projector, a Kinect, and wet sand to allow students to make different designs in the sand while the software projects contour lines in real time onto the surface. As the student moves the sand, the lines and colored shading change, too. The software also simulates rain and water runoff so students can explore elements of hydrology. The History and Political Science Department intends to use this technology to teach civilization settlement patterns, agricultural techniques, topography, landforms, and strategic studies.

Drones - Dr. Liann Gallagher

Echo 360 - Jason Sitek

HardingNetwork - Heather Kemper

ThingLink - Stephanie Ungerank and Jason Morris (ASU-Beebe) Selecting the appropriate instructional techniques that align with your objectives but is designed to create engagement and interaction, is often times a tedious task. Let us show you different ways to use Thinglink for face-to-face or online classes that makes learning fun, and easy to create and manage.

Peerceptiv - Naomi & Peerceptiv Representative

Canvas Studio - Dr. Sarah Pierce (Freed-Hardeman)

When considering how to assess student learning in a course, most instructors would agree that the ideal assessment would be one that not only assesses students’ learning; it also teaches students and improves their skills and understanding of course content. One fundamental aspect of such assessments is that they are authentic. As an educator, would you like to require more authentic assessments but wrestle with the time constraint these types of assessments require to administer and assess? Join us as Dr. Pierce shares how she was able to use the Canvas Studio tool to assess her students in real-life situations without having to take class time to administer them.

New Library Integration for Canvas - Amy McGohan and Whitney Hammes

Come learn about Brackett Library’s online tutorial series and how to integrate research instruction into Canvas. These resources are beneficial for students researching and using academic databases for the first time, as well as students needing to review skills before a research-intensive assignment. Also learn the best practices for linking and embedding electronic resources from the library.
