Presentation Title: Planificación y Diseño de Lección en Línea a través de Blogs

Presentation Description: The aim of this presentation is to show how blogs can be used to plan and design a paperless online lesson. To do that, I will start by defining what an online lesson is, its advantages and certain things we have to consider about it. I will also give a broad brush view on blogs before I start talking about planning and designing an online lesson using blogs. To end this presentation, I show a sample of an online lesson in Blogger.

Presentation Title: Teaching Kids To Think Using Scratch

Presentation Description: Scratch is a simple yet powerful programming language for children that is very easy to use yet contains many of the important programming constructs found in more “grown up” languages.
This presentation looks at some of the key ideas behind programming in Scratch, explores some possible tasks that students could be given to encourage problem solving and higher level thinking, and finishes with a snapshot of a student view into how Scratch is making a difference to learning.

Presentation Title: The Classroom Social Network: It’s not just Fun, It’s Fundamental to Modern Learning

Presentation Description: Social Networking has been around for the past 7 years give or take, but until recently hasn’t had a large presence in the classroom. I would like to show you the benefit of using various types of social networking in your own classroom to increase your student’s engagement in the classroom and give you tools to authentically assess their understanding via discussion boards and posting of videos/photos.
