ATD Dallas Technology SIG

Hosted by: Leslie Lingle of nThrive & Deanna Fischer of Fischer MicroTech

Wednesday, October 10, 2018
12:00 - 1:00 PM

Facilitator: Mary Hancock

We often think of learning technology as only for online learning. But you can take a page out of the eLearning developers’ handbook and make use of technology to augment traditional classroom activities. Adding even small layers of technology can give a facilitator what any good trainer wants – the undivided attention of the learner. This can have a transformative effect on your learners, increasing engagement, interactivity, and ultimately knowledge and skill retention. Join us for this informative discussion on incorporating technology into your next instructor-led workshop.

At the end of the session, you will be able to:

  • Incorporate polling software to augment traditional group discussion and Q&A with your class.
  • Use free software tools like Mindmeister and Trello for brainstorming activities.
  • Use QR codes to simulate an Escape Room style activity.
  • Add music and audio sound effects to enhance the learning experience.
