Stillman hosts Ninth Annual Technology Conference February 17
Stillman College will hold its Ninth Annual Integration of Technology into Instruction Best Practices Conference on February 17, 2011, on the Stillman campus in the Education Building, room 112, beginning at 8 a.m.
“The conference is designed to demonstrate innovative uses of technology to enhance learning,” said Dr. Anthony Nzeocha, Associate Professor of Education & Psychology at Stillman College and National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) Assessment Director & Technology Conference Coordinator.
Dr. Brad Cliff, one of the presenters at this year’s conference, said, “It is so important to use technology to engage students and enhance learning.” Cliff will be presenting a low-cost method of using smart phones to allow for eClicker technology in the classroom. “It can transform a lecture into more of a dialog with students, and I have had really positive feedback when I have utilized it. Students like it because it makes learning fun. It allows the students to answer questions, like on a game show if you will, and helps me gauge how well they are absorbing the information I am presenting in class. It also allows me to avoid the costs associated with traditional methods of eClicker technology.”
Presentations will take place for 25 minute or 50 minute concurrent sessions. Presenters for this year’s conference include: Joan Greene, Technology Initiatives, Alabama State Dept. of Education; Debbie Crutchfield, Alabama State Department of Education; Dr. Johnny Gilbert, Jackson State University; Dr. Alfonso W. Crump, Jackson State University; Dr. Gunars Cazers, Stillman College; Tracy M. Windle, The University of Alabama; April Nelms, The University of Alabama; Dr. Brad Cliff, Stillman College; and Dr. Anthony C. Nzeocha, Stillman College For more information, contact Dr. Anthony C.
