Let Lenovo and Atomic Learning guide professional development in your tech-enabled classroom
One of the biggest challenges faculty members face when integrating PCs into instruction is a lack of training on how to create an effective technology-enabled educational environment.
In fact, a 2009 report from the Babson Survey Research Group and the Sloan Consortium showed that while a majority of all U.S. higher-education institutions say PC-based instruction is key to their long-term strategy, a fifth of these institutions don’t provide any related training for faculty.
By partnering with Lenovo, your institution will get not only leading-edge technology, but also knowledge. We understand the power technology has to reach students — and we know that for educational technology to be truly effective, faculty must know how to use it.
That’s the thinking behind the Atomic Learning professional development system, a vast and affordable online training resource. Brought to you by Lenovo, Atomic Learning offers a complete “teach the instructors” process then lets faculty introduce students to their technology-enabled classroom.
Highlights of Atomic Learning
- A library of more than 50,000 short videos allows faculty to move at their own pace to learn techniques for using technology in the classroom — everything from database software to digital video editing and beyond.
- Activity-based Technology Integration Projects allow faculty to become comfortable with integrating technology-oriented projects into instruction.
- Assessment and skills concept training, lesson accelerators, workshops and student assessment methods are all part of the Atomic Learning package.
- Technology training resources on course management systems, including Moodle, Blackboard and Desire2Learn.
