Virtual Speaker Series 2011-12
Get Ready! Get Set! Get Organized! October 26, 2011 3:00 - 4:00 p.m.
Have you ever felt overwhelmed in the digital world? There are so many fantastic resources available online, but so often we just don't have the time to locate and organize them in a way that makes them useful. In one hour I will show you how to find resources that have already been vetted by educators from around the world, how to organize these resources, and how to share them with your students, their parents, and your colleagues. You will learn about Google Docs, blogging, wikis, Diigo, and building a personal learning network. I will share examples of how these can be used in a variety of ways and across all content areas. You will walk away from this session with the confidence to use at least one digital tool that you were not using before.
