Event Description

It's a Small World: Elementary Global Collaboration with Nancye Blair Black from Lakeland, Florida.

With so many resources available for Global Collaboration, elementary teachers often spend hours sifting through tools and practices to find the select few that will be successful for young learners. In this high-energy session, attendees learn about powerful web resources and best practices that are perfect for our youngest learners. With ideas for tools like Google Docs, Storybird, Voicethread, ePals, Skype, Flockdraw and more, participants will learn how to find other teachers and classes who are interested in collaborating, how to set-up 21st century learning activities that promote global awareness and real world problem solving, and easily implement these new tools in their classroom. In no time, elementary students can be blogging; digital storytelling; sharing videos, images, knowledge or skills; and even creating websites with other students across the classroom and around the world. Nancye Blair Black is an award-winning educator who promotes progressive technology-enriched educational practices empowering students to succeed. She has been an ISTE Emerging Leader and PBS Teachers Innovation Award-winner. Nancye is on the Florida Society for Technology in Education (FSTE) Board and chairs ISTE's Special Interest Group for 3D in Education (SIG3D). Her blogs and resources can be found at www.EngagingEducation.net and www.InDepthEducation.com.

Self-Regulation: Getting Our Students To Care

I think all educators can agree that we want our students to become better self-regulated learners. However, this is a daunting task for teachers. I've spent a great deal of time trying to teach my grade 6 students various self-regulation skills such as planning, goal-setting, self-monitoring, time management, self-control, and reflection, but in past years it hasn't quite "taken" the way I hoped it would. I talk about how important this skills are until I'm blue in the face and I usually get…See More
