Campus Technology 2014 Presentations by Rob Zdrojewski


I'm excited to be presenting three technology sessions in July at the 2014 Campus Technology Conference in Boston, MA.  If you're attending this Higher Education Technology conference, use the official hashtag #CampusTech and be sure to stop by!


Flipping Your Classroom with iPad Screencasting
3-Hour Ticketed Workshop
Presenter: Rob Zdrojewski
Co-Presenters: Alane Seeger and 
Sarah Warner
Monday, July 28, 2014  1:00-4:00 pm
Session Description:
Screencasts have the power to personalize the online environment when students actually see and hear their instructors and classmates asynchronously. Learn how to use the leading iOS screencasting apps such as TechSmith’s ScreenChomp, Explain Everything, and EDUcreations to create screencast videos using only your iPad. Your screencasts can include a combination of elements, such as PowerPoint slides, documents, and even your face as you speak! Capture all lecture content and create effective online teaching materials. Specific Higher Ed examples will be provided from a “Flipped” adjunct professor who now rarely delivers lectures standing in front of students, and instead circulates among them while they take ownership of their own learning. Engage your students, accelerate learning and flip your class!



Engage Your Student Audience with Socrative

Presenter: Rob Zdrojewski
Tuesday, July 29, 2014  2:00-3:00 pm
Poster Session in Exhibit Hall
Session Description:
Student response systems are increasingly becoming a popular technology tool to engage students in classroom activities. Their high cost and steep learning curve, however, 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 app 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. Bring your device to this presentation and see engagement in action!


The Art of Screencasting: “Teacher-On-Demand” Is Possible
Session Designation: Hot Topic
Presenter: Rob Zdrojewski
Thursday, July 31, 2014  9:30-10:00 am
Session Description:
The art of screencasting enables flipped classrooms and effective online teaching. Learn how to create screencasts using TechSmith Relay on all major platforms including iPads, Windows or Mac. Should we "flip" direct instruction into screencasting so graduate students have anytime, anywhere access to classroom instruction? When combined with an online learning platform, teachers now have the ability to create a 24/7 learning environment, perfect for keeping absent students up to date and fostering a 1:1 teacher to student classroom. Discover what tools are needed to get your faculty members up and running.
