Clear Off Your Plans for This Evening! It’s Global Education Conference Time!

If you don’t already know it, Steve Hargadon and Lucy Gray have assembled an UNBELIEVABLE line-up for the Global Education Conference which is currently going on (November 15 – 19, 2010), it’s online and free.  Check out the numbers:  370 sessions from 62 countries!  63 keynote speakers!  219 moderator volunteers have signed up to help for 446 hours of sessions!

Nancy Sharoff, DEN Guru will be presenting Do You See What I Mean?: Visual Literacy in a Web 3.0 World at 8 p.m. EST.

Description: This presentation is designed for educators who have an interest in integrating Visual Literacy and Web 3.0 tools. Participants will explore the power of Web 3.0 as a means of enhancing the principles of visual literacy. Key data as it relates to Visual Literacy and acquiring and retention of knowledge is presented to form the foundation of the presentation. Specific strategies for locating digital media will be shared with participants. Once equipped with the above, we will look at the various Web 3.0 applications which allow for the collection, presentation, and dissemination of digital media. By the end of the presentation, each participant will understand the impact of visual literacy on the learning process; will be able to produce, and integrate digital media into their curriculum and share via the internet; and will have developed a ‘toolbox’ of resources to use as they integrate Web 3.0 into Visual Literacy.

Then an hour later…

Traci Blazosky, DEN Guru will be presenting Creative Construction with Multimedia at 9 p.m. EST.

Description: This presentation will motivate educators to unleash their creative mind, engage students and enhance learning with free Web 2.0 tools such as Glogster, Voicethread, Vokis, and more. Participants will see how a trip in Google Earth or an interactive poster using Glogster can incorporate the Discovery Education Builder Tools to further engage student learning. This session will model ways to integrate the three DE Builders (Writing Prompt, Assignment and Quiz) while differentiating instruction, motivating students and increasing achievement. By the end of the presentation, participants will be eager to explore these tools, anxious to return to their classrooms ready to GLOG ON! and take flight with the Discovery Education Builders.
