TechTrain 2010: Beginners Learning Technology Tools Together

TechTrain 2010: Beginners Learning Technology Tools Together

Heard these words floating around your school: blogs, wikis, podcasts, Web 2.0, Twitter, Ning, and variety of other 21st century tech jargon? Wondering what on Earth they all mean and how they are relevant to your classroom today? Wonder no more…

We invite you to this EARCOS weekend workshop which will introduce you to a selection of educationally and developmentally appropriate technology tools that will help enhance learning in your classroom and beyond.

All beginning skill levels are welcome, and all workshops will be structured so that everyone feels successful. Our goal is to provide individual attention, move at a beginner’s pace, and have participants leave with something concrete they can implement in their teaching practice right away. Even if you’ve never used technology in your classroom before, this is the workshop for you!

Making Inclusion Work: Differentiation in the Classroom

Making Inclusion Work: Differentiation in the Classroom with Bill and Ochan Powell

How can we help teachers along their journey towards differentiating instruction in mixed readiness classes? This interactive and practical workshop will give participants a framework to develop skills and approaches for differentiating instruction in inclusive classrooms. Using a “double track” curriculum of theory embedded in skills, educators will observe and participate in the “process” of differentiated teaching as it is orchestrated, modeled and explicated.
