The presentation entitled "21st Century Skills: Free Instructional Websites" was presented by Dr. David Rosen at the COABE 2013 National Conference in March in New Orleans, Louisiana. There were many outstanding presentations at the conference, however this presentation scored the highest on the conference evaluation.
Dr. Rosen's presentation discussed how to use websites that offer free, video-based instruction suitable for adult learners, teachers, and tutors in education professional development, and computer-assisted instruction. The presentation also introduced ways to incorporate free online video instruction into a curriculum. The websites that were reviewed included: Khan Academy, a huge collection of videos well-organized in math, science, social studies, and other subject areas; and the Media Library of Teaching Skills (MLoTS), a collection of free, authentic classroom adult education professional development videos.
