St. Clair County Community College Regional Workshop

Another New Paradigm: The MillennialZ and Educational Technology


Workshop Description

Millennials have been in college classrooms for the past 20 years, and Generation Z includes recent college graduates. Students have changed, and so have our classrooms and strategies to engage them. Workshop participants learn how to engage students using free and easy-to-use educational technology tools. Participants leave this workshop with the abilities to create their own instructional videos and games, study aids, and presentations that increase student motivation and participation!

Participants in the Workshop will:

  • Review current research that differentiates generational learning and communication styles.
  • Review and observe at least seven different educational technology tools that are innovative, intuitive, and free.
  • Learn how to create videos and other tools designed to increase students’ mastery of curriculum learning outcomes.
  • Create their own accounts for educational technology tools they find most applicable to their teaching.
  • Create their own videos, games, activities, and presentations based on their individual preferences.
  • Review examples of their colleagues’ creations.

Participants receive a Certificate of Attendance upon completing the workshop.
