Enabling Digital Learners

With a device in every student's’ hand, students are truly becoming citizens of our digital world. This does not mean they magically know how to use the devices for effective and appropriate learning practices. Just as we seek to help them become effective learners, it is our role to help them become productive and appropriate citizens in their digital learning interactions. This can feel like one more task for the teacher. However, embedding a strand of digital learning and citizenship into your curriculum can truly release the power of a one to one environment. In our session, we will look at ways to embed critical digital learning practices into your classroom in a meaningful way. Although this is not a tool training, many different tools will be discussed as examples are highlighted. Project ideas, organizers, templates, and websites will be shared as part of the session which can be used by attendees.

Poster sessions during "Unconference" Session:

· LAN School - Mrs. Lancaster will demonstrate LANSchool Chromebook Monitoring in your classroom to see what the students see on their devices.
