Please plan to join the FREE, interactive, virtual learning at the 2011 Texas Virtual Schools Network (TxVSN) Online Conference this week. Tomorrow on Wednesday, August 3rd, I’ll be presenting a session online in Elluminate Live at 7:30 EST / 6:30 pm CST / 5:30 MST / 4:30 PDT entitled, “Filtering the Information Flood: Strategies for Effectively Teaching Online.” The session description is:
Are you dealing with TMI (Too Much Information) in your online teaching? Clay Shirky points out TMI issues often result from “filter failure.” In this session we will explore a variety of strategies to more effectively filter information we share with students and receive from them online. We’ll also explore ways we can use web-based audio recording tools to provide personalized and efficient feedback to our students for assessments.
Referenced resources for this presentation are available on my Google Sites wiki, and my slides are available on SlideShare. This should be a fun session, please join in if you can! Registration for the conference is free.
