Come Join the TX DEN for our first Tweet Chat Appy Hour on Twitter ~ Tuesday, March 20th, 2012 at 6pm CST with hashtag #appyhour. During this fun hour of learning, the TX DEN will lead discussions on using Apps effectively throughout the content areas in k-12 education.
While its important to know the best apps out there for a content area, it is certainly more important to know how to effectively embed it into your lesson plan for student learning and success. For this hour, we will discuss ways to embed content and share some of our favorite ways that we have embedded apps into the different content areas as well. You will have the opportunity to share your ideas and lessons with apps in our developing website tinyurl.com/appyhour . We welcome you to jump in and help edit and build our site as we go. With so many brilliant minds in the DEN and in school districts around the world, we can certainly give other teachers a great place to get started. It’s all about the students and our ability to engage them in learning in a meaningful way.
Accept our Facebook invitation to show your support and to be part of the TX DEN’s first Tweet Chat. After you accept the invitation, take a moment to share it with all of your Facebook teacher friends! You can also join the TX DEN Facebook page to keep track of all the exciting activities we continue to do to support teachers around the world.
