Do you want to break down the walls of your classroom and introduce your students to the world? Join us for this interactive three-day workshop that will provide participants tools to create their own Personal Learning Network and to use in their classroom. Some of the tools we will be learning about are: Twitter, blogs, Skype, global projects, and Google Apps for Education. Participants will have the opportunity to create a twitter account, blog, and Skype account. They will also leave with many ways to connect their classroom and many resources they can confidently use in the new year.
Participants must bring their own laptop or Chromebook with Wi-Fi capabilities. Participants are encouraged to have a Google Apps for Education or Gmail account.
It will be taking place on July 14th, 15th and 16th in Renfrew.
