Reverse Mentoring: How to Help Integrate Technology as a Student Teacher

More than ever before, student teachers can both learn from their cooperating teachers and be outstanding resources for technology integration. Student teachers now navigate through their experiences as students, adopting online education pedagogy established through their own online learning. With many schools using one-to-one technology initiatives, student teachers can become “reverse mentors” by using their specialized knowledge of learning through online technology to become leaders in the school and inspire teachers to use different applications in their classrooms. 

In this webinar, hear more about how to harness information from the cooperating teacher and apply it to develop online education practices that facilitate better learning outcomes for students. In addition, the frameworks of SAMR and TPACK will be mentioned as possible integration evaluation methods. Attendees will explore different online applications and how they can be used in daily classroom instruction. 
Join this webinar to:
• Learn about roles of reverse mentoring.
• Explore different categories of online technology that can be used in the classroom.
• Learn how to analyze practices of cooperating teachers and apply appropriate technologies to facilitate learning.
