ABOUT OTAN TRAINING: Workshop Descriptions

Workshop title Browser Extensions and Apps - What You Need to Know (New!) 
Workshop description

Browser extensions and apps can be great tools to use in education. They can make our lives more efficient and learning more interactive. But there can also be safety issues lurking in both and you need to be aware of them. This workshop will be an awareness building opportunity to learn about what permissions you are granting, how to look for extensions and apps that do not require as many permissions, and some ways to mitigate the risks.

Prerequisites: Basic computer and Internet skills. A mobile device (smartphone or tablet) might also be useful, but not necessary.

Session length 1.5 hrs 
Format Workshops: Synchronous online trainings, or series of trainings, in which facilitator and participants interact by voice or chat.
