Glenda McPherson

Workshop session


"Getting the most from your online classroom as a teacher"

Glenda will explore a range of different ways software such as Elluminate Live can be used in teaching and learning. This software has huge potential for face-to-face classroom teachers, teachers who see their students infrequently (or teachers who may like this to be the case) as well as fully online students. Even if your students don't have the internet at home, an online classroom still could still be a useful tool for them to continue their studies' at home! Come along and see which model of usage best suits you and your students.
