Alan Levine Educational Learning Consultant Mortlach, Saskatchewan CogDogBlog.com
Description Do shared social media memes and animated GIFs represent the worst elements of internet culture? Or, are there purposeful academic uses for such “silly media”?
Levine will suggest ways we can augment online teaching with memes by adding images to words, to visualize metaphors and facilitating discussion.
As shortform videos, animated GIFs that loop are effective for demonstrating natural processes or illustrating techniques where repetition aids understanding.
Learn what your students might accomplish by creating memes and animated GIFs. With your creative ideas, such media could be much more useful for teaching and learning.
