Campus Technology 2013 Conference Presentations by Rob Zdrojewski

I'm pleased to announce my 3 upcoming presentations at the Campus Technology Higher Education Conference in Boston, MA from July 29 - August 1, 2013.  Join us if you are attending!

 $M09 - Screencasting: The Essential Piece to Flipping Your Classroom!
Presenter Rob Zdrojewski, Adjunct Professor, Ed Technologies Program, Canisius College
Monday, July 29, 2013 1:00-4:00pm

Screencasts have the power to personalize the online environment when students actually see and hear their instructors and each other asynchronously. Learn how to create video-based lessons of your instruction using Windows, Mac or iPad. Specific examples will be provided from a “flipped” Middle School Technology teacher and online Higher Ed Instructor who now rarely delivers his lectures standing in front of students, and instead circulates among them while they take ownership of their own learning. Thanks to our sponsor, Insight Systems, there will be laptops available for use for the first 30 participants in this session.

PSW696 - Using Socrative to Engage Your Students (Using Technology They Already Own!) Presenter Rob Zdrojewski, Adjunct Professor, Ed Technologies Program, Canisius College
Wednesday, July 31, 2013 2:00-3:00pm

Description Student response systems (a.k.a. “clickers”) are increasingly becoming a popular technology tool to engage students in classroom activities. However their high cost and steep learning curve prevent many classrooms from utilizing this exciting technology. Learn how Socrative.com aims to change all of this. Socrative is a free web-based student response system that runs on ANY device with a web browser. See how you can use tablets, iPod Touches, smartphones, or laptops as “clickers” instead of investing in the more traditional “one-purpose only” hardware clickers on the market. Please BYOD (bring your own device) and join us for some fun demonstrations of Socrative.com
