Publishing Using Digital Tools
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

When students know their work will be seen by others, they want it to be good. When they know it's just for the teacher, they want it to be good enough. Using the digital storytelling tool Book Creator, we'll talk about how and why to create things others will see, and explore techniques for getting them to push themselves in projects using this and similar tools.

Amplifying Students' Voices
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Perhaps nothing is more powerful for a student's sense of possibility than seeing and hearing what he or she has gone to the trouble of doing well. We'll look at tools and approaches to giving students reasons to up their game on what they make using simple audio and video editing tools, simple screencasting, and free contests as a way of helping them understand what it means to have an audience.

Interactive ELA
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Intro
Let's ask students to think critically and creatively about narratives by asking students to examine tough choices literary figures face and tough choices current individuals must make to survive or thrive.
Create
We'll start by brainstorming literature where characters face tough decisions and the potential difficult outcomes of those decisions. We'll map out those decisions and outcomes on Post-it Notes and then begin designing an interactive experience using Google Sites to map those choices with texts and images. Participants will design models of interactive literature sites to provide students.
Reflect
How else can this kind of interactive activity be deployed? What other possibilities are there for the future?
