Save Infant Lives, Integrate Media to Teach Concepts, and Body Positions – The Lesson Challenge Award winners of 2013
This year’s winners demonstrate the rich variety of ways that SoftChalk content can enrich teaching and learning. In Little Things Mean A Lot you will learn how a typical lecture driven class was transformed into an interactive learning experience where students learn not only about shaken baby syndrome, but also about brain development and child abuse prevention. Students and teachers who are required to take this training annually comment that they are learning new things in this format.
In Advance Web Design you will see an exciting way to present media, add text-to-speech and even an interactive tour of an animation program. Most importantly – and particularly relevant to this class, students easily experience the basic web design principles that are being taught, just through the SoftChalk design and integrated elements!
In Physical Examination: Body Positioning you will see Dr. Larsen challenge his students to select the correct body positions for the next physical exam. This transformed text-filled page becomes a memorable learning experience for first year nursing students.
