This week I had the privilege of attending the BOLTT (Bringing Online Teachers Together) Conference in Toronto, that was put on by our Ontario eLearning Consortium. This was the first conference I’ve ever presented at. There were perhaps 170 attendees from as far away as Ottawa and Wikwemikong (on Manitoulin). The conference was well-organized, and they fed us well 🙂
I presented on the idea of using Clickbait to foster student engagement. You can follow the link to check that out. It generated some good discussion, and I was surprised that people were so interested.
What was nice to see was such an engaged group of people that are so passionate about e-learning and making it more accessible for students, as well as making it easier to use for teachers. I learned how to use a tool called Today’s Meet, and a more efficient way to run a back channel through Google Slides.
It was refreshing to be able to network with other teachers and see the fantastic things that are going on. If anyone is interesting in the large body of workshops, follow this to a set of Padlets for everyone’s resources.
