Today, CUE and the Stanislaus County Office of Education announced that Dr. Chris Haskell will provide the lunch keynote for the fourth annual eLearning Strategies Symposium, a conference dedicated to highlighting and exploring effective strategies for online and blended education.
At Boise State University, Dr. Haskell specializes in preparing pre-service teachers by focusing on the use, adaptation, and implementation of emerging technologies in teacher education including gaming, mobile communication devices, portable media players, social networking tools, and virtual worlds. He is actively piloting and developing groundbreaking alternative approaches to both delivering and tracking learning.
In his keynote speech, “Ahead of the Game: The data behind innovative, blended, and game-based learning,” Dr. Haskell will share new opportunities to motivate, support, promote, and differentiate students in blended and online environments as well as research supporting game-based learning.
