Contact North | Contact Nord’s What’s Next in Online Learning webinar series features a select group of Canadian CEOs sharing their vision of learning in a post-pandemic world.
Much of what passes for educational technology has been designed by technology developers with their own ideas of what teaching and learning looks like. BigBlueButton is different. Developed by and with teachers for teachers, with technology colleagues enabling their designs, it’s a different approach and a different outcome coming from a different kind of organization.
Fred Dixon, founder and CEO of the Ottawa-based Blindside Networks and lead for the team that developed BigBlueButton, leads this webinar. He’ll explain what he learned from the pivot to remote teaching during the pandemic, what he thought worked and didn’t work and what he expects the EdTech industry to work on for the future.
When you take part in this engaging webinar, you’ll get an opportunity to:
• Reflect on the experience of online learning during the pandemic: the good news and the not so good news.
• Explore the role of open-source technology and open education resources during the pandemic and what these developments mean for the future of EdTech and online teaching.
• Explore the difference between products and services designed with and by teachers versus those designed by technology developers.
