Monday, March 14 we have an early release and the high school teachers will have a technology day! So excited. Here are the three choices.
1. Digital Media, 402 with Lynne PeltoLearn how to integrate digital media into your curriculum to engage students. We will be covering digital photography, (if you have your own camera, bring it and the download cord, school cameras will also be available), flip video camera, editing digital photos with picnik.com, scanners and google earth.
2. Web 2.0 Tools, 401 (VHS Lab) with Tina Avery
Learn how to create a blog for a classroom or a topic. Explore wordle, tagxedo (word clouds), glogster (online poster), youtube/teachertube and more! Discover how web 2.0 tools can be used as teaching tools or for student projects. You will leave the class having created your own blog and/or glog.
3. Clickers/Interwrite/MOBI (Lab 1, Library) and Edline with Sarah Kyriazis
Bring your class list and a list of 10 questions (quiz or assignment) and start creating your first clicker lesson. Learn how to use and get comfortable with the MOBI tablet. Discover what you can do with the Interwrite Software that is on everybody's desktop. If time allows, we will also learn about some advanced Edline features.
I will be posting the handouts on the blog for all of the district teachers to have. I hope to have more of these types of technology days in the future!
