Ms Graveley

Presentation Description: This presentation will share the story of my classroom being chosen by Skype in the Classroom to follow Mark Wood during his summit attempt of Mount Everest. Educators will be exposed to the power of global communication when helping students become 21st century learners. My goal for this session is to share my experience with other teachers and help them transform their teaching to include learning opportunities outside the classroom. By the end of the session, I hope educators will feel comfortable and invigorated to use Skype in their classrooms.

Presentation Description: Most teachers would love to communicate and collaborate with other classes but are unsure just how to begin this process. How do you go about finding other classes to connect with? Where do you find projects that can be used for collaboration? How do you cope with time zones? How can social media help you flatten your classroom walls and enable you to incorporate the 4C’s of collaboration, communication, creativity, and critical thinking into your weekly lessons?

Find out how Paula and Jan found each other in 2009 and have had their two classes collaborating ever since. Learn how these two veteran educators have used social media sites such as Ning, Twitter, Facebook, Edmodo, Google and Google HangOut, and Skype to collaborate and communicate with many more classrooms each year.

Presentation Title: Instructional Strategies That Work with Videoconferencing: Increasing Interactivity

Presentation Description: Videoconferencing can bring the world to your classroom. It allows educators to bridge the divide by bringing experiences to rural students; by engaging conversations and interactions between urban and rural students and by connecting students globally. Whether using desktop videoconferencing or room based videoconferencing, educators can bridge the divide between “dabbling” in videoconferencing to fully integrating with solid classroom instructional strategies.
