Hope you join us online this Thursday, 1/13 at 4pm EST as we explore how reader's theater can be used to improve comprehension of informational text and help students learn science concepts. We'll focus on science-themed text, but the same principles can apply to other content areas as well. You can find the link to participate, the descriptions, and archived recordings of all the webinars at http://wiki.nsdl.org/index.php/BeyondPenguins/Seminars
Hi Lucy - Hope your summer is going well! I wanted to update you on our free webinars and hope you can join us for one of them soon. I was also thinking that maybe we can get you to talk about global education during one of them - interested?
In any case, we've had three Tech Talks so far - one on Interactive Notebooks, Moodle, and Digital Storytelling. You can get to the recordings of those by clicking on the Web Archive link.
You can see all our upcoming events by clicking on the Events tab. The next TechTalk topic is Using Wikis. We've got lots more topics to cover in the next few months - technology, pedagogy, content knowledge, all sorts of fun stuff! Any ideas on additional topics or feedback you have would be greatly appreciated! Kim
Lucy - It sounds like Beyond Penguins would be a resource that could really help the teachers that you work with - I'd really like to talk further about how that might work. Please give the magazine a look - Kim
Hi Lucy - So glad you joined our network! We are just getting started but really appreciate any feedback or ideas on how to make this network meet your needs. I see that you are preK-5. One of our other projects is Beyond Penguins and Polar Bears that is specifically for K-5 teachers. It's on online magazine that integrates literacy and polar science - http://beyondpenguins.nsdl.org. Our latest issue is on Oceans. Regards, Kim
