Technology for NonTechies 2.0 (Presenting with Doris Flores)

Skill Level: Below Basic/Beginner

Audience:  Teachers Grades K-12

 Teaching the participants about free or low-cost technology that they can use in their class. We will introduce the technology, teach them how to use it, and then give them studio time to use and explore the technology resources.

Our “techies” will walk away feeling more comfortable and confident with technology. “Techies” will feel ready to use one or two new tech tools in their classroom after attending the workshop.

Don’t Be Afraid of Blended Learning (Presenting with Doris Flores)

Skill Level: Beginner/Intermediate

Audience:  Teachers Grades K-12

We will introduce some blended learning software that is available, then primarily focus on the classroom environment and expectations. For example, what is the teacher’s job and the students’ job during this time? We will have a hand-on activity where teachers participate in a blended learning activity to experiment with implementing blended learning with minimal stress. Attendees will leave with a better understanding of what blended learning is, and how to successfully implement it in their classrooms. The idea of doing blended learning can be stressful, and we will build confidence so that our attendees feel at ease moving forward with blending their classrooms.
