NRLC PL - Crafting a Classroom - Education Technology Integration Session 2
Time: 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Location: Webinar

Part 2: Google Jamboard, Docs and Slides 

A Masterclass in Collaboration and Personalization Possibilities

Google Docs and Slides have evolved SO much in the past few years, and Jamboard is just a thrill in itself! From a teaching and learning perspective, these tools are very much the standard in terms of tools that can support ALL learners not only in reading and writing and presenting, but also in developing today’s competencies of communicating, collaborating, and critical thinking. Today, we teachers can use Jamboard, Docs and Slides to better personalize learning by providing students with safe spaces to wonder and construct understandings together, as well as pathways in content and toolsets that provide them with voice and choice in what they learn and how they demonstrate that learning.

ERLC PL - Technology in Schools I: Edtech Professional Learning Evolved! - from Models and Meetings to Mentors and Making Meanings… the ET Crowd!
Time: 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Location: Webinar

Much has been made over the years about shifting traditional professional development from “sit and git” to participatory, but just as in the classroom, where sometimes direct teaching is necessary to provide students with the background they need for your “guide on the side” activity that follows, so also a range of edtech professional development models can serve different purposes. Hence, “sit and git” seems to remain popular, even in our online sessions! Rather than assume that “sit and git” is the de facto approach, however, what if we all craft (and value) professional development opportunities that best meet the needs, experiences, and abilities of all learners in the room? How do we do that?
