Apps in the AE Classroom

Name Apps in the AE Classroom
Date Friday, September 23, 2022
Time 08:30 AM - 11:30 AM

Adult learners are faced with many challenges. External factors including  family and jobs can make it challenging for adults to continue their education or to advance their careers.

Integrating technology into curricula helps adult education programs adapt to the needs of the students while benefiting both teacher and student.  Educational technology, in the form of apps, makes it easier for educators to tailor their curriculum to multiple types of learning styles and locations including in-person, blended, or hy-flex.

There are MANY online apps and tools that allow teachers to create games and assessments, post discussion boards, create study tools and more! Once the creation process is complete, those tools can be accessed by students individually or in teams, as study guides, or even as homework. Many of these apps also allow students to create their own games or flashcards.

This series will show adult educators and staff how to use free and easy-to-use online tools for teaching synchronously or asynchronously online or in person. The variety of apps listed can be customized to fit the needs of a requesting agency. Please note that as a scheduled workshop, no more than 3 apps may be covered in one session.

If a requested app is not listed, contact OTAN at - the list is constantly be updated and the app you are looking for may just need to be added!
