The EDUC 190 (Computers in Education) classes of the University of the Philippines Diliman College of Education will be holding the 2nd EDUC190 Webinar Series this 2nd semester 2012-2013! The webinar (or online seminars) are FREE and these will run from March 10 to April 5, 2013 depending on the schedule. The webinars will be organized by undergraduates mostly composed of education students and sports science students. This online event is FREE for everyone but slots are limited and there are no reservations due to the limitation of the webinar platform.
The topics range from the following: Flipped Classroom, Online Games for Learning, Parenting Techie Kids, Mobile Apps for Learning, Technology in Special Education, Cyberspace Laws, Teaching Tumblr for Classroom Use, Digital Storytelling, Educating 21st Century Learners, 5+ Free Web Tools for Teacher Organization, or simply, topics in the realm of Educational Technology.
Presenters will be coming primarily from the classes along with possible guest speakers from different local and foreign organizations. The schedules of the webinars will be provided through 2 publicly viewable Google Spreadsheets (one for the EDUC190 WF class and another for the EDUC190 WF1 class). The webinar details (e.g. presenters’ names, webinar links) are posted on the spreadsheets.
The organizers will mostly be using the Blackboard Collaborate (formerly known as Elluminate Live!). If you plan to join and particiate in the event, kindly check if your computer meets the following recommended Elluminate Live! System Requirements. It is recommended that you click the webinar link 15-30 minutes before the specific webinar so that you will have time to troubleshoot if ever you get to encounter technical problems. When you click a webinar link, a small Java file (JNLP) download will be sent to your computer. Just accept it, open it using your Java Runtime Environment and then a new window will appear for the presentation room. It is also recommended that you are using a stable Internet connection that does not make use of filters and proxy servers.
