Clouds: How Are They Impacting Learning?


Tuesday, February 5 at 4pm Eastern Time

 

REGISTER HERE for the webinar

 

Sponsored by Rosetta Stone

 

We have taken a look at what clouds are and how they are involved in K-12 schools. In this webinar we will look at how clouds are influencing teaching and learning in the K-12 environment. What are teachers doing in the classrooms that involved cloud technology? Do clouds make a difference to students’ learning? Do students even know they are using clouds? Do clouds require extra work on the teacher’s part?

 

Join us as we take a look at the influence of cloud computing on teaching and learning.

LMS and Curriculum Maps


Tuesday, February 5 at 5pm Eastern Time

 

REGISTER HERE for the webinar

 

Sponsored by Follett Software Company

 

A Learning Management System is used to control all learning activities – from course planning to analytics. A good LMS platform will serve as a means of collaboration and professional learning for teachers in the classroom.

 

Curriculum Maps can assist in better monitoring and assessing of learning and teaching.  They serve as a means of verifying the standards, both Core Content and Common Core, are being taught – or not.  They help teachers of specific subjects or grade levels share their best practices.

 

This webinar looks at what happens when these two technologies are combined.

 

Digital Decisions for Collaborative Learning
Digital Decisions for Collaborative Learning is a professional learning community that helps educators make the right decisions to ensure the best use of technology for teaching and learning.
