New ebook on Personalized Learning

posted Mar 22, 2017, 10:23 AM by Dave VanLue   [ updated Mar 22, 2017, 10:23 AM ]

This book is designed to help today’s educators make sense of the shifting landscape in
modern education. While changes may pose significant challenges, they also offer countless
opportunities to engage students in meaningful ways to improve their learning outcomes.
The key to engaging students can be found by educators who are willing to bridge the
gap between what kids are too often still doing in school—working silently alongside
one another on activity sheets, staring at teachers as they lecture, and taking the same
tests—and what kids do outside school: connecting and sharing online, and engaging in
virtual communities of their own. Personalized learning is the key to engaging students,
as teachers are leading the way toward making learning as relevant, rigorous, and meaningful
inside school as outside.

Engaging Students AND Teachers with G Suite for Education

Today's students seem to need constant engagement for teachers to keep their attention. Look no further than G Suite for Education. Aside from its awesome price (FREE) it allows each teacher the freedom to meet the 4 C's of education collaboration, creativity, critical thinking, and communication, for their students on a daily basis.

This day promises to be high-octane and packed with Google goodness that is guaranteed to increase the engagement level of the students in your classroom. At the end of this workshop, teachers will be able to create 'Choose Your Own Adventure' Google Forms, individualize work within Google Classroom, and be able to use Google add-ons to increase productivity in their classroom.
