F41. Family Vacation to Teachable Moment
We will unpack those family pictures and video clips, and develop rich learning experiences for the students! Grounded in curriculum standards, we will target the development of virtual fieldtrips. We will investigate research supporting the use of virtual fieldtrips as a teaching tool, discuss procedures for planning and developing the journey with assessment, and explore various user friendly-free tech tools to make happen! Teacher/students’ samples will be examined!
F67. Mini-lessons for Mama
Room: 205 | All Grade Levels
“I want to help him with his school work, but I don’t know how!” explained Mama. This session attempts to close the teaching-learning gap for parents (caregivers) through the the development of curriculum based mini-lessons. They teach skills or concepts and are uploaded to the classroom website for easy access. The mini-lessons are created using VoiceThread and integrate photos, documents, clips, and voiceover.
We will take a look at numerous student/teacher samples!
