Learning2gether Episode 340
Vance Stevens delivering a talk on Sunday, August 7, at MMVC16 – Moodle Moot Virtual Conference 2016
An abundance of PD opportunities online: More than meets the eye.
This Learning2gether Episode #340 is one of many online PD opportunities that are taking place literally as we speak, and if this is a representative moment, this extrapolates to an abundance of PD opportunities online at any given moment. Abundance in teacher professional development implies TPD that is free, easily accessible, and available as per user interest in the manner of a berry bush, where users pick the most desirable berries from among those most easily reachable. But institutional PD is often approached from a mindset of scarcity, meaning it is time-bound, tied to brick and mortar, and often driven top-down. This presentation will help viewers visualize the abundance in a way that this perspective can be shared with whomever is driving your PD through a scarcity paradigm.

Hyperdocs: Digital Lesson Design Using Google AppsWe are so excited to welcome Lisa Highfill, Kelly Hilton, and Sarah Landis to our kick-off webinar for the new school year! They will be sharing a fantastic digital tool which they created called “HyperDocs.” You will be thrilled to learn all of the powerful uses for HyperDocs to facilitate and enhance learning for your students!Webinar Description: In this webinar, participants will learn how to improve their digital pedagogy instantly by creating HyperDocs – powerful inquiry-based learning tools. HyperDocs are digital tools that replace the worksheet method of delivering instruction. Lisa Highfill, Kelly Hilton, and Sarah Landis will discuss how using Google apps for packaging and workflow can greatly enhance reading and writing instruction. We will explore the philosophy behind HyperDocs, how to create them, and they will present many examples that you can edit, revise, and use in the classroom. Additionally, participants will learn how creative packaging of digital web tools can be used to transform their lessons into interactive, multi-layered experiences for students. This workshop is great for all grade levels and subjects including administrators and coaches, and each participant will leave the session with new thinking about how to effectively integrate digital instruction.Remember to follow us on Twitter: #liveclass20More information and session details are at http://live.classroom20.com.
