Remember the days of hanging your child’s work on the refrigerator for everyone to see? In today's changing world the refrigerator is no longer relevant. Students need a window to the world where they can publish, share and connect with others around the world. In this session participates will learn how to create their classroom’s window to the world. Digital publishing in the classroom is much more complicated than placing a computer or iPad in front of your students. You, as a teacher, can shift your philosophical understanding of teaching and learning. Garth and Mike will discuss the positives and negatives, problems and road blocks and how allowing students a digital voice has effected teaching and learning in our lives. Further, we will discuss the methodology necessary to prepare students for leaving Digital Footprints worth following. Think of the excitement in August as you introduce a new way to connect with your students, parents and the world. Join us and empower your students to leave digital footprints worth following.
