During the workshop, you'll have the opportunity to experience a number of technologies that can be incorporated both in and outside the classroom a to engage students. One such communication technology is text messaging. Texting is a great tool for providing course-related reminders and announcements in an online learning environment. While there are many texting tools and approaches to choose from, a texting group for the workshop has been setup using the free service Remind101.com and you are invited to opt-in to the texting group. You will receive no more than 2 messages during the workshop.
To receive seminar-related text messages, simply follow these instructions:
Your mobile number is kept private and no one, not even your seminar presenter, can send you a direct text message. You will simply receive text messages that your seminar presenter sends to all participants.
While you are encouraged to join the workshop texting group using the instructions above, if you aren't able to receive text messages on your phone or would prefer to not receive workshop-related text messages, you can alternatively join the workshop via email and all workshop text messages will be delivered to you at your email address instead of text message. To receive workshop texts by email, follow these instructions:
For an example of a printable version of the opt-in instructions, the printable instructions your workshop presenter received from Remind101 are provided below.
