Two Days That Make a Difference with John Kuglin

June 10-11, 2014
9 a.m.—3 p.m.
Cook Center, Hagar Hall
MidAmerica Nazarene University, Olathe, KS

Focusing on a balance between instruction, assessment, and the effective use of digital tools and resources, this special two-day workshop offers a unique combination of the best in educational practices and the most innovative technologies available today. It will also balance five key components, which are essential for educators to transform themselves. They are: solution, creativity, collaboration, media, and information fluencies. Learning to build an effective digital space with multiple components is essential for educators to post and present instructional material in multiple modes. During the workshop teachers will learn innovative ways to aggregate, enhance, deliver, and assess content through the newly formed and popular concept called “an App”. Participants will make the transition to more powerful web-based presentation packages while saving and converting may of their old presentations from past applications.
