Innovating Teaching and Learning Workshops, Spring 2021
Best Practices & Tools for Learning in ALL Settings
100% online & self-paced. Registration is now open for Cohort 9 (March 15-May 2, 2021).
Join us online Spring 2021 with Technology Integration Specialist Jake Miller to explore ed tech tools and classroom-tested strategies for designing powerful blended learning experiences for all settings - remote, face-to-face, and a blend of the two. Participants will take a deep dive into tools such as Flipgrid, Edpuzzle, Pear Deck, Loom, Screencastify, and Nearpod to learn how they can be used effectively in all settings to promote student learning, gather formative assessment data, enable differentiation, and support students’ social-emotional needs.
Participants will engage with asynchronous videos from the instructor about the strategies and tools, try out the tools on their own, and participate in occasional synchronous topical discussions. The course will be hosted in Google Classroom, giving participants an experience with this learning management system from the learner perspective.
Jake Miller is an edtech and learning enthusiast who hosts the Educational Duct Tape podcast and shares #EduGIFs and edtech tips at @JakeMillerTech and on JakeMiller.net. Jake, an employee of the Orange City School District, has spent 17 years in education as a technology integration specialist and teacher of various grades of math, science, and STEM courses.
