Exploring Images in the 21st Century Classroom

How can adding images to your in-class and online activities raise student interest? How can you help learners develop 21st century multiliteracy skills through active learning?

In this six-week online workshop offered through the Electronic Village Online, you will be introduced to various online image manipulation tools and will learn how to effectively incorporate these resources into their teaching practices. You will explore how images can be used in educational settings for photo sharing, storytelling, slideshows and comics creation, as well as understand how Creative Commons licensing can be beneficial for classroom use. By the end of the workshop, you will have the chance to develop a plan to begin incorporating digital production into their lesson plans.
