Digital Learning Day Google+ Hangout

If you are unaware, February 6th is Digital Learning Day. This day promotes technology-based instructional practice as a means to strengthen a student’s learning experience. Now that technology has become embedded in every aspect of our society and it’s more accessible than ever before, there couldn’t have been a better time to learn about new ways to incorporate technology in your lessons.

Come join John Sanchez in an informal setting as he discusses how to use technology with your learners! There will be two discussions, set to take place on Wednesday, February 6, at 2:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. via a Google+ hangout, so if you don’t have a Google+ you have until Wednesday afternoon to sign up for this free social networking service.

Are you new to using technology in the classroom? Do you want to know more, but simply don’t know where to start? Is the idea of learning how to use new programs and understand its complexities sound daunting? No Sweat!

In this discussion, you will learn how to use software like Prezi and Google Drive along with social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, and Google+, in your teaching. There will also be a review of several websites, webinars, and online courses that all teachers/tutors could benefit from their use. Whether it’s in the classroom or through distance learning, these easy-to-use programs can be suited to any teaching or learning style so they are certain to be of use to everyone.

Please contact sanchezj@floridaliteracy.org for more information on how to register for a discussion.
