ICT Online Workshop 2016: Creating a collaborative learning environment

Event report

N.B. This report is identical for both events, for Edpuzzle and Creating a collaborative learning environment.

In 2016 our ICT professional learning again took the form of online webinars. Two webinars each running for an hour were held on Wednesday 26 October and Wednesday 2 November.

Our presenter, Shingo Gibson-Suzuki, showed us how to use Edpuzzle and how to create a collaborative learning environment to be used with students and staff using various cloud based sites.

We greatly appreciate Shingo’s support and willingness to share his wealth of knowledge and creativity with us.

We continue to look at different ways to present our professional learning and hope to continue this online format next year.
