Digital Tools with Purpose in the Classroom

 

Abstract

 

Interested in learning about new web tools for your classroom? Come and learn about digital tools with purpose.

Be part of an international group of educators who are always looking to share best practices from their classrooms.  How can you help learners develop 21st century multiliteracy skills through active learning enhanced by the right tools for your specific pedagogical needs?

 

In this five-week online workshop offered through the Electronic Village Online, participants will be introduced to various online tools and will learn how to effectively incorporate these resources into their teaching practices. By the end of the workshop, participants will have had an overview of simple ways to spice up their lesson plans to promote students’ creativity, engagement and learning. We promise it will be madly fun!

Target Audience

Any educator willing to step up to digital possibilities to enrich and enliven their classrooms with the perfect digital tool fit for their educational environments. Participants are assumed to have skills necessary for basic communication via a discussion group and Internet browsing skills (tutorials will be made available for those with difficulties in areas that may prevent participation).

    Sorry I could not make it through the traffic in time to join you all at the Tellus. I was really looking forward to it. Send some pictures.

    We also saw use of LiveBinders as a tool for organizing resources – which I am now using for common core math resources and materials. Good stuff.
