Powerful learning communities don't just happen. The process of building classrooms where students take risks, do meaningful work and engage together in deep learning has to be ongoing and intentionally designed.  Building collaborative learning communities requires the teacher to facilitate the group through the stages of knowledge, communication, cooperation, and collaboration while also building trust over time.  Sounds like a tall order when you already have myriad other responsibilities, but the payoff is worthwhile- students who are safe enough to shine and challenged enough to take risks. In this webinar, we will explore skills and strategies for building the CLC as well why they're more necessary now than ever.




Digital Citizenship Across the Content Areas

Wednesday, January 16th, 2019 at 7PM

So many educators think of digital citizenship as "one more thing" on their already full curricular plates. This doesn't need to be the case! In this webinar, you will be introduced to a plethora of ideas that range from incorporating social media etiquette into your elementary literacy block to teaching students about screen time in a middle school math class as well as using tech ethics as the basis for debates in a high school level social studies course. This webinar will have plenty of ideas for every content area and grade level ranging from quick bell-ringers to multi-day units of instruction. No matter who you are or what you teach, you are bound to walk away with some great ideas!
