Presentation Title: Building Bridges: Connecting Students and Teachers to the World through Innovative Technologies

Presentation Description: In this video recorded session, participants will be introduced to ways to connect students to the world through innovative instructional practices and integrated technology. Likened to building a bridge, participants will be guided through the entire process of global collaboration through the Plan, Design, Constructors, Tools, and Connection. Specific examples of global projects and connection to national and international standards of instruction will be examined and tech tools and apps for collaboration will be demonstrated. Participants will be directed to explore and try out all technologies digitally throughout the session. Nearpod will be used in coordination with the videocast to offer an example of innovative teaching practices. Participants will leave with ready-to-use ideas for instruction and with ways to create global projects in their classrooms. Join for a fun and exciting session that will help to build the bridges that will bring innovation, connection, and inspiration for the future!
