  • Creating and Using Location-Aware Games in the Classroom

  • Practical Uses of Screen-sharing in the Communicative Classrooms
    In this workshop, we cover the basics of Solstice — the technology available in Kresge classrooms that allows faculty and students to easily share content from their laptop, smartphone, or tablet to the big classroom screen. In the workshop, we cover a variety of hands-on use-cases to understand how the screen sharing technology can be useful for a variety of discussion activities and/or communicative tasks for language instruction and other humanities classes.
