New job … new challenges. I am beginning my fifth week as the Instructional Technologist at Albany Law School. I am certainly learning a lot as I visit classes and talk to law professors and students.
Today I visited a first year class where the professor was using a PowerPoint presentation and the CPS System (Clickers) to review and encourage discussion. It was very effective in engaging students in active learning.
I also observed a second class where the professor used the Elmo to allow students to focus on the 14th amendment of the Constitution (a small book that he carried in his briefcase) and an overhead transparency of a related document.
