Electronic Constructivism: Innovative Technologies, Virtual Environments, and Inspiring Examples

Dr. Maureen Brown Yoder

What are the most innovative Web-based tools available to enhance your teaching and increase your personal productivity? Where are the best archives of images, videos, slideshows, and Web sites? How can virtual worlds create learning environments that will involve your students in ways never before possible?
In her keynote address, Dr. Yoder will address these questions and provide examples of how these emerging technologies can be incorporated into classes in appealing, imaginative ways. She will take you on virtual field trips, demonstrate new, educationally oriented networking tools, and show you data analysis utilities such as four and five dimensional graphs. You will come away with a collection of free tools and resources.
