I'm presenting Tuesday, November 13th at 10:00 p.m. (central time) at the Global Education Conference and you can tune in here for free! My topic is:
Collaborating Globally: How to connect your class to the world
This session will take attendees step by step through completing a global collaborative project. First, they will learn how to utilize Twitter to connect with other classes. Edmodo and Google Docs will be used for collaboration tools. Next, we will explore how to use a Google Hangout including video chat, screen sharing, and special effects. Voicethreads and Livebinder will also be discussed. All technology experience levels welcome!
Also, I haven't officially shared this on my blog, but I've had a lot of exciting things happening lately- including being accepted into Google's Teacher Academy! I will be flying to Mountain View, CA to Google Headquarters this December for some intensive PD with an amazing group of 50 educators from all over the world! After this training, I will be a Google Certified Teacher!
I've also decided to take the GRE and apply to doctoral programs in Educational Technology, which is why my posts have become much less frequent. My test is this upcoming Saturday. You can still keep up with me over at my classroom blog, where I have pictures of our daily activities and lesson ideas. I should resume my normal posting schedule around January.
