ISTE 2014 is about to begin along with so many other great conferences throughout the summer. I am signed up to go to edcampOshkosh later this summer, and would love to go to more, but finances hinder the big trips. So what about an edcampSSTLAP? Could we create a virtual edcamp using GHO? Yes there is a limit of 10 per session, but if you are On Air, others can view and share.
So first step- are there topics people are willing to share?
@Mrmatera and I have talked about gamification, and I think he would be an awesome person to lead a session on that.
What about use of apps, or other tech that has helped you engage students in your classroom?
Or what about Genius Hour - who has done it, what is your experience, and why should others do it?
How do we engage students? We want to have them experience things, but how do they get the basis, or background knowledge to do this? How do you instruct students so they are knowledgeable to produce the product you desire?
I started this document last week, and am hoping for more assistance- http://goo.gl/gUHRHl #SSTLAP Summer Learning Add some GHO topics, suggestions for sessions.
How do you get students, even the quiet ones engaged in the conversation? This is about strategies- discussion tactics, backchanneling, what ever you use and have seen work. I am tossing out ideas to jump start your thinking.
Differentiation- how do you do this in your class? Do you do it in instruction or only in assessment?
Assessment practices in a #sstlap classroom- how do you assess and grade learning in an engaged classroom?
Please jump in and add your own ideas, I don't want to direct your summer of learning, I want to collaborate with you.
Post on the document above, post in #sstlap - DM me ideas. Let's engage in conversations in more depth than 140 characters.
Who is up for this?
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
