3rd EDUC 190 Webinar Series 2013-2014

The EDUC 190 (Computers in Education) classes of the University of the Philippines Diliman College of Education will be holding the 3rd EDUC190 Webinar Series this 1st semester 2013-2014! The webinar (or online seminars) are FREE and these will run from September 1 to October 1, 2013 depending on the schedule. The webinars will be organized by undergraduates mostly composed of education 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: Technology in Mother Tongue-Based Learning (MTB-MLE or MLE) in Philippine Education, Using Twitter and Tumblr in the Classroom, Gamification of Education, Must-Have Apps for Teachers, Websites for Fast-Paced Students, Digital Storytelling Apps and Sites, 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 international 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 participate 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.
