I've partnered with BlackboardK12 to share out the awesome sessions they are having this Fall. Educators can sign up to attend and share with other great educators what they have learned. I'll feature the session and the description on my blog each week and on my Twitter account. If you have questions, feel free to shoot a tweet to @BlackboardK12. Have fun learning and sharing!

Making the Most of Your Technology Initiative: How to effectively leverage technology in a 1:1 classroom

This presentation will describe how teachers in the Piedmont City School District have gradually transformed pedagogy through their 1:1 laptop initiative. Learn how to effectively incorporate 21st century skills while still teaching state mandated standards in both an elementary and a high school classroom. Also, learn ways to apply the SAMR model for technology integration while using blended learning to personalize instruction.
