Renita Luck, Dorea Hardy

We are educators because we are passionate about sharing information and helping others discover the joy of learning. And, while the cognitive processes for learning may not have changed over the years, how we engage those processes most certainly has. The demand for 21st-century skills such as digital literacy, collaboration, and critical thinking mandate that we infuse our lesson plans with technological resources and engage our students in collaborative, interactive environments. Whether or not the thought of using technology in your classroom fills you with excitement or dread, this workshop is for you. By exploring principles of the Cognitive Theory of Multimedia Learning and freely available Internet resources, this workshop will help guide you in the process of incorporating technology into your existing lesson plans in ways that will engage the student and maximize the use of cognitive processes to enhance active learning. Attendees who desire to interact with the resources highlighted during the workshop are encouraged to bring a laptop.

I am passionate about online learning, committed to students - especially the adult learner, and enamored with learning theory especially as it relates to distance education. When I'm not working I enjoy reading, working with Legos, and spending time with my family.
