Online Workshops and Webinars are offered by OTAN to meet the demands of busy adult educators. We are currently working on our line up for this year, so stay tuned and check the California Adult Education Professional Development calendar so you won't miss any!
OTAN offers a wide variety of no-cost, hands-on, three-hour workshops. We will come to your school if you have at least 10 interested participants and an approved lab. If you have a smaller school and need more participants, consider coordinating with other small schools in your area to fill your workshop. If there is a technology topic not listed that your staff needs assistance with, let us know and we will discuss creating a new workshop to meet that need. Here are some of our workshop titles:
Be Internet Awesome!
Google has created four free mini games that are aimed at K-12 but could certainly be used in the adult education classroom to help create awareness about internet safety and help them understand the consequences of their actions.
In “Kind Kingdom”, bullies have spread bad vibes throughout Interland. Your mission is to collect hearts and cheer up the citizens. You also need to block bullies and report their bad behavior.
“Mindful Mountain” allows you to send posts, but different paths share each post with a different audience. Your goal is to share each post with only its intended audience. If a post is shared with someone outside of the intended audience, an explanation is given, and examples of possible consequences, and you are invited to try again.
In “Tower Treasure”, your goal is to collect lowercase letters, uppercase letters, and symbols, then combine them to make a strong password.
In “Reality River”, you need to cross a river to get to the other side. To do this, you are given a scenario along with 3 possible answers. Your avatar jumps onto the selected platform, and if the correct answer is chosen, you remain on the platform and move on to the next question. If the incorrect answer is chosen, you move back to the previous platform, and are invited to try again.
Once all activities have been completed, you are declared “Internet Awesome”, and can claim a “Certificate of Awesomeness. You can then see your scores for each game and revisit the lessons to try for a higher score!
