 In Progress

“Book Review of Choice Words by Peter Johnston”
In productive classrooms, teachers don’t just teach children skills: they build emotionally and relationally healthy learning communities. Teachers create intellectual environments that produce not only technically competent students, but also caring, secure, actively literate human beings.

“Creating and Using Digital Notebooks for CORE Subjects”
Research shows that going digital enhances student engagement and performance. Digital notebooks help students to personalize and individualize learning along with increasing collaboration with teachers and peers. Students may express their thinking through videos, apps, text, and pictures. Digital notebooks enable teachers to create learning templates to drive instruction and students are able to layer information on top of each other. In addition, students are able to hyperlink to third party apps. After the session, attendees will have all the tools they need to implement digital notebooks with confidence and ease.
