Bridging the Digital Divide

Please join us at Madisonville Community College for our second Learnshop. The theme for this session will be Bridging the Digital Divide. Register Here! This Learnshop will explore the concept of the digital divide in the community college setting, examining implications and impact of the use (or underuse) of technology in education from faculty, staff, and student perspectives. Would you like to have your students more engaged? Do you find it difficult planning lessons for digital natives and digital immigrants? Would you like to increase student access to technology? Would you like to see how others approach the digital divide? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then we would highly encourage that you meet with your colleagues in Madisonville to explore the topic in more detail. This Learnshop will provide participants with a unique opportunity to connect with others discussing a similar topic, learn new concepts, engage in thoughtful discussion and experience the educational application of technology from a variety of perspectives. Here are just a few of the many discussion topics that may be explored during our Learnshop:

  • Are you putting your best digital foot forward as an instructor? As staff? As a student?
  • Do you find students to be intimidated by, or even resistant to, using technology in the classroom, student registration, and do we dare mention Email? How can faculty and staff better help them with this?
  • How can technology assist students in becoming self-directed learners?
  • Would instructors’ audio/visual postings in Blackboard make the course seem more REAL? Would this trigger more accountability on the student side? Would this help “anchor” a student to the course better?
  • How much do I allow students to “lead” technology in the classroom?
  • How can I keep my online students engaged and feel like part of the class?

Thank you. We will see you on November 17th!
