I am presenting twice in September about how I use technology to engage, enhance and extend in my teaching.
I guess, this is a promo.
My focus in this presentation is on using a projector, the internet and a digital camera to improve the learning experiences in your classroom. Seems simple, but I suspect these tools are often overlooked for their true capabilities. Rather, teachers are being tantilised by BYOD, tablets and apps.
How does this simple image of the bottom shelf in my fridge help get my students talking and learning about capacity?
[I used this image just today and one student couldn't believe I was using a photo from my own fridge, not sure why.]
How is this better than the static images of a textbook?
How does a toy car extend my students?
I will be presenting these ideas and much more in two sessions (each slightly different):
For DEC teachers, this is a 90 minute workshop.
Tuesday 2 September 2014, Ringrose Office, Greystanes.
PL@Edu course code: NR06824
I'll also be presenting at the MANSW Annual Conference.
