Getting Past Powerpoint, James Hayes-Bohanan, Eric LePage 2011 Bridgewater State University

Getting Past Powerpoint, James Hayes-Bohanan, Eric Lepage

EdTech Day

For an entire generation, integrating technology into the classroom has very often meant using PowerPoint to enhance—and even to organize—lectures. More advanced integration of technology often means teaching students to prepare their own PowerPoint presentations.

Dr. James Hayes-Bohanan became acquainted with PowerPoint when working as an in-house software trainer as the application was first coming to market. As a new professor in the ensuing years, he used many of PowerPoint’s bells and whistles—sometimes literally—in his own teaching and helped both middle-school and college students to use the software.

It is from this deep involvement with ...

Ditch Your Lms Discussion Board And Make The Move To Facebook Groups, Eric LePage 2011 Bridgewater State University

Ditch Your Lms Discussion Board And Make The Move To Facebook Groups, Eric Lepage

EdTech Day

This past semester I taught an undergraduate Communications course on social media, and we spent a week holding our online course discussions in a Facebook Group site, rather than in our course Learning Management System (Moodle). The Facebook discussions worked so well that my students asked if we could abandon the Online Discussion Board tool and use Facebook Groups for the remainder of the semester. I will share with you the pros and cons of using Facebook for your online course discussions.


Increase Student Participation With Poll Everywhere, Susan Eliason 2011 Bridgewater State University

Increase Student Participation With Poll Everywhere, Susan Eliason

EdTech Day

Do your students text-message in class? An article inspired me to use their passion to text as a teaching tool and to increase in-class participation. Poll Everywhere allows you to pose a question to students via an embedded PowerPoint poll. Students can then respond to the poll via SMS text, Twitter, or the web. Your polls can be multiple choice based or open-ended questions to create conversations. The service is free for up to 30 responses per poll question. The polls have engaged students in conversation and participation in the learning activity and it created a novel learning experience.

School Leavers In Australia : Profiles And Pathways, Julie Mcmillan, Gary Marks

Dr Julie McMillan

This report examines the process of school leaving and the transition from school to post-school education, training and the labour market. A major focus of the report is young people who do not stay on to complete senior secondary school, as this group is often perceived 'at risk' of experiencing a problematic transition. In particular, the following research questions are addressed: What are the influences on non-completion, and have these influences changed over the past two decades? What are the early post-school experiences of school non-completers, and how do these differ from those of young people who complete Year 12 ...


School Non-Completers: Profiles And Initial Destinations, David D. Curtis, Julie McMillan 2011 ACER

School Non-Completers: Profiles And Initial Destinations, David D. Curtis, Julie Mcmillan

Dr Julie McMillan

This study examines non-completion of Year 12 at school for a nationally representative sample of young people who were 15 years old and still attending school in 2003. The study explores relationships between non-completion and selected socio-demographic and school-related factors, and changes in rates of school non-completion from the early 1980s to 2005. There is a particular emphasis on how socio-demographic and school-related factors over that period have influenced early school leaving. This study also examines the use of an alternative measure of ‘school completion’, which incorporates participation in a vocational education and training program after leaving school.

Codebook: The Lsay 1995 Year 9 Sample Wave 7 (2001) Technical Report No. 27, Kylie Hillman, Julie Mcmillan

Dr Julie McMillan

The 1995 Year 9 Cohort (Y95) In 1995, a nationally representative sample of approximately 13,000 Year 9 students was selected to form the first cohort of the new Longitudinal Surveys of Australian Youth program. The sample was constructed by randomly selecting two Year 9 classes from a national sample of 300 schools designed to represent state and sector. Reading and numeracy tests were administered to students in their schools to provide information on early school achievement for use in later analyses of educational and labour market participation. Students also completed a background questionnaire about their educational and vocational plans ...
