  • Technology tools to bring the students’ voice out into the world
  • Stories of how the students’ voice can transform education
  • New ideas that can be implemented starting today to change the power within our classrooms

Let Them Film – Another SimpleK12 Webinar Presentation

I am thrilled to have been asked back to do another webinar for SimpleK12 entitled “Let Them Film – Promote Student Ownership in Learning with Video Cameras.”  The description is as follows:
How would you like to get rid of the packets and worksheets and offer students an interactive way to learn? Would you like to have students participate in the learning conversation, becoming more aware of their goals and challenges? Then join this webinar and discover ways to integrate video cameras into your curriculum. With this simple tool, students can go on grammar hunts, report their science findings, and teach other students how to do math. We will explore how to integrate the cameras without changing your learning goals, as well as discuss some meaningful activities that you can begin with.


This webinar will take place on January 12th at 12:30 – 1:00 PM ESt and is free!  All you have to do is register so to register just click on this link.  I hope to see you there.
