  • 19 Sep 2014
  • 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM
  • Webinar
*THIS IS A 3 HOUR WEBINAR*


Generation Z, born between 1995 and present time, are living and experiencing a time of complete technology. These young people are comfortable with technology and are actively using to learn new information; search and post video; play and entertain themselves and most of all “network” online.   In this workshop you will experience how web-based or e-learning platforms may be used to creatively teach evidence-based and/or continuum of care curriculums to our Generation Z technology enthusiast.  The development of this workshop is done using Adobe products (Adobe Connect Platform and Adobe Captivate). Must have a computer/laptop, headphones and microphone to participate for this synchronous workshop (camera is optional).

Participants will:

  • Learn which software to use in developing content for the platform.
  • Learn how to pull video of Youtube and embed into platform.
  • Learn how to use polling questions to establish baselines in the platform.
  • Learn how assessments developed in Adobe Captivate may be used in the platform.
  • Learn how interactive activities developed in Adobe Captivate may be used in Adobe Connect.
  • Learn how to add links to websites, which may be reviewed in real time during the discussions.
  • Learn how this platform may be used to help practice reading skills, comprehension, drawing conclusions, critical thinking, and application.  (Skills that research is showing that many or our at-risk populations need improvement). 
  • Experience a simulation of an evidence-base Middle School Lifeskill Topic in the platform.
