SMARTen Up!

using SMARTboards effectively in the middle and senior years classroom 

 

  Manitoba Education

 June 21, 2010

 In this hands-on session we will learn basic through advanced “reveal techniques”, mechanics of using the board, lesson plan design, how to work with video and audio, weave in appropriate web 2.0 tools and applications, and discuss the pedagogical considerations that flow from using this technology, multimedia and the internet.

 

 Below you will find resources and links related to the SMARTen Up! workshop. All slides and SMART Notebook files used in the presentation can be found here as well as other resources teachers may find valuable.

Agenda

 

There will be a lot going on today and we'll need to get organized. I'm looking for a volunteer to be our D-in-C, Designer-in-Chief to keep our collaborative Google Doc pretty and well organized. (You're invited to join the doc now.)
