Creating Virtual Spaces for All Learners

During this period of flux in our educational system, it is important to create a sense of “normalcy” for virtual learners through an effective virtual space that has the ability to inspire, entertain, and engage even the most reluctant learners. 

Participants will decide on what the purpose of their virtual space will be: Is it a classroom that acts as a central location of information for students and parents? Are they creating a digital library for their students? Are they taking their students on a virtual field trip to an exotic or fun location? Are they creating an engaging learning activity? Based on their room’s function, they will learn how to create a visually appealing scene to enable those functions and more!

Learning Objectives

Attendees will learn how to create a colorful, comfortable, and welcoming virtual space that will help to instill some of the “normal” that may be missing for their students; transform a Google Slide into an interactive space; apply backgrounds and layer objects to create a space that is enticing and engaging for any learner; and link the objects within their spaces to create an interactive “virtual hub” of  information, materials, web links, and more!
