2015 ICSSP (ISESS)
International Conference on Social Sciences and Psychology
June 27-29, Seoul
Aaron E Martinson
Sejong Cyber University, Korea
Topic: The Success of Cross Cultural Teaching and Learning at a Predominantly Arab Speaking Institution for Higher Education
Topic: Utilizing Social and other Media to Lower Affective Barriers in the Classroom
Aaron E. Martinson, M.S.Ed, is a lecturer and course developer in the Department of English at Sejong Cyber University in Seoul, South Korea. He has taught EFL students of all skill levels and ages for more than seven years. He is currently focusing on research in interface, multimedia, and communication systems that will improve experiences for distance learners, as well as research focused on how to incorporate distance learning for those with disabilities.
This presentation will focus on utilizing different effective multimedia tools to lower the affective barriers that may impede learning. When choosing a tool one must first identify the learner, identify the needs of that learner, and finally identify the barrier. Once the barrier is identified a plan can begin to form.
It is the goal of this presentation to explore techniques and methods that are conducive to an educational curriculum, in order for dedicated educators to continue to improve the overall quality of their courses. It is also the hope of the presenter to start a meaningful conversation about which direction these technologies can and should take as we find ourselves more technologically involved in all aspects of our lives.
