Design Matters!

A practical exploration of the intersection between Visual Design, Presentation Design, and Instructional Design. Every day, several times a day, teachers everywhere are called upon to educate, entertain, elucidate, enlighten, and maintain attention amongst their students. With the advent of Interactive White Boards and/or video projectors in classrooms everywhere, the intersection of these skills is fast becoming a centrepiece of an educators toolkit. This presentation will model and illustrate concrete ways in which teachers can incorporate these skills into their daily pedagogical practice.

What Can I Do Now? (web 2.0 pedagogy)

In this session, learn how teachers can redesign their lessons to take advantage of social media and free tools available on the Internet.  Emphasizing pedagogy over tools, we’ll connect research-based pedagogy and 21st Century Learning skills to using flickr, wikis, Google Maps and mashups of a great many more tools.  You’ll walk away with lots of ideas to give your lessons a Web 2.0 facelift.

A Day in the Life (of a teacher teaching with technology)

Walk with me through a typical day in the life or a teacher whose pedagogy is infused with all sorts of web 2.0 tools such as slideshare, flickr, twitter and blogs. We'll explore how teaching and professional development intersect in the course of a normal day and how a blog can serve as the central hub for the online presence of several different classes. The discussion will focus more on pedagogy than how a particular tool works.
