Tune in tomorrow for two additional FREE professional development webinar opportunities! 

Webinars for Tuesday, April 30, 2013:

Don’t Be A Sage - Engage!

Presenters: Jenna Garber and Laura Lawrence

Time: Tuesday, April 30, 2013 5:00-6:00 P.M. (EST)

In this webinar, we will discuss how to change the role of the teacher in the classroom. Too often, teachers are the “sage on stage,” delivering all of the content to students in a lecture-based, direct instruction environment. Get ready to re-think your role and become more of a “guide on the side,” encouraging student choice and self-directed learning. Join us as we share with you some tips, tricks, and technology tools to help you make the transition from sage to guide.

Stop, Collaborate, & Listen: Students Teaching Students with the iPad

Presenters: Rachel Doty Walker and Kendall Maddox

Time: Tuesday, April 30, 2013 6:00 - 7:00 P.M. (EST)

Join us as we explore ScreenChomp and other apps on the iPad and learn how to empower your students to become content experts. Whether you have one iPad or many in your classroom, you can create opportunities for collaboration and critical thinking for students in any grade level or subject. Get a first hand look at steps to take to have students creating their own tutorials in no time and how to do it the first time with less stress.

It’s finally here! After a semester of research and preparation, the 3rd Annual Evolving Education Cyber Summit will commence online.

Join us on Monday for Gamify Your Classroom to Motivate Your Students! presented by Danielle Brooking and Lauren Zoerhoff. See you at 5:00 p.m. EST!

Imagine a classroom with students who are interested, engaged, motivated, and excited about learning. Well, this classroom could be yours! Join us in this webinar to explore how this can be accomplished through the integration of game-based learning. According to Laila Weir (2008) with Edutopia, research shows that “students learn more quickly and easily with instruction across multiple modalities or through a variety of media.” Using games as a medium for learning can improve student attitudes while also fostering problem-solving and higher-order thinking skills (Kapp, 2012). You will walk away from this webinar with practical classroom strategies for accomplishing all of this and more.
