Using collaborative technologies to engage students in authentic, content-specific conversations

All Grades

with Shelly Stanton

Technology Integration Specialist

On October 11th and 18th, I’ll be sharing the strategies I’ve found make it possible for students to engage in safe, productive, and authentic online conversations.

I’ll share the approaches I use in my own classroom to ensure that my students make the most of their chance to connect globally with people who are not like them; and to ensure that they become better critical evaluators of sources of information they find online. I’ll also share strategies that help protect my students when they’re online: How I help my students develop codes of behavior when interacting online, for example. How I help them to understand how to safely and appropriately make use of digital platforms: how to help them understand that what they do online might affect others; how what they publish will exist permanently; and how they need to be diligent about citing sources.

On October 11th, I’ll share these approaches in a free, one-hour workshop that gives you the information you need to make it possible for students to get even more out of their learning-based online communication. You’ll have a chance to reflect about what I’ve presented and to begin to personalize the resources and practices for your own classroom. Then, our group will meet again on October 18th to share ideas and to help fine-tune everyone’s approach to this important.

Register for this TeachingPartners Live Workshop now, and TeachingPartners will immediately send you an appointment you can drop right in your online calendar. You’ll also get a reminder closer to October 11th to make sure you’re ready.
