Game On Panel: Tech Solutions for Remote Reacting

Registration is closed

Using technology to support student learning has always been important. During the pandemic, it is vital. But, with so many options, it can be hard to know where to start.

This free(!) panel event will present different platform options (and combinations) to help you consider what can work for your Reacting class. Our panel of exceptional instructors will provide an overview of multiple platforms, highlighting benefits, limitations, and considerations for each. The panelists will share their experiences with:

  • Discord
  • Slack
  • Gather.town
  • Flipgrid
  • Video Conferencing options (very briefly)

The panelists will discuss how the platforms can support student learning and engagement, while minimizing overload.

Marc Carpenter (University of Oregon), Michaele Ferguson (University of Colorado, Boulder), Veronica Gregory (Central Michigan University), Ray Kimball (West Point), Andy Lamey (University of California, San Diego), Jonathan Lawrence (Canisius), Mark Thompson (California State University, Stanislaus), Jon Truitt (Central Michigan University).

Can't make it to the live panel? A recording of the panel will be available free to Reacting Consortium members, and for a fee to non-members.

Joining the Reacting Consortium is encouraged. And donations are always welcome. 

90 Minutes
