Teaching online: Explore different online tools 

This webinar will explore how different cross-platform tools can promote collaboration, independent learning, creativity and assessment opportunities. Delegates will have plenty of hands-on time to explore the power and potential of web tools and apps for enhancing learning in and out of the classroom. Focusing on pedagogical principles and improving outcomes, Joe Dale will demonstrate how easy it is to enhance learning in a purposeful way with a range of tools which are device agnostic, allowing learners to practise, reflect and share the results easily.
