Webinar: Teacher-n-Teacher (NMSA2010 presentation), January 6, 2011, 8EST
Presenters: Davilla Riddle and Rebecca Lawson
Webinar Description: Innovative classrooms today create opportunities for students to collaborate locally, nationally, or globally and empower them to forge new, purposeful academic relationships. This presentation provides educators with a framework that supports student learning communities around STEM concepts. Learn how to involve students in relevant, project-based learning with authentic audiences, nurture critical thinking, and facilitate the development of interpersonal and global communication skills.
A follow-up webinar will occur for those interested in contributing and participating in the MSP2 collaboration project. This webinar will be scheduled very shortly after the January 6 date. We will invite those who wish to participate in the collaboration to attend the webinar to actually collaborate on the project. The group will help determine the topic of the collaboration, the activities to be completed, etc. Emphasis will be placed on selecting a topic and activities that will lend themselves to meeting academic standards across the middle level grades and perhaps more than one academic area (i.e. integrated activities that could be done by a middle level team).
If you have other ideas or would like to participate, please contact us (Davilla Riddle or Rebecca Lawson) or join our group!
