In this session, participants will be introduced to Flipgrid, the video discussion tool that supercharges your students’ voices. You participate as a student and then jump in to set up your own grids and discussion topics. We’ll dive into the Disco Library to find topics that we could use in the classroom right away and discuss best practices to amplify learning in Flipgrid.
EdPuzzle allows you to add interactive questions into videos and track student progress as they work through them. Upload videos from YouTube, or even better, create your own videos and post them on EdPuzzle for effective, asynchronous delivery of content. In this session, we’ll walk through a brief overview on setting up EdPuzzle, best practices for online use (including how to record your own videos on Screencastify), and Q&A.

It’s a simple way to make digital books online – on Chromebooks, PCs, iPads, or tablets.
Create in a snap! Adobe spark is a creative way to communicate just about anything in a few clicks. In this session, we’ll dig into some creative ways teachers and students can show what they know. We’ll highlight several creative platforms that are perfect for online learning and get hands-on with a couple of options you can use tomorrow. Focus tools include Adobe Spark.
So many of our young students have not had opportunities to explore the world beyond their own schools and neighborhoods. As our youngest scholars become creators and participants in a larger learning community, it’s important that they have an awareness of the world around them! Let’s take a look at how to build geo awareness and global citizenship in our little learners, including in the digital world! In this session, we’ll look at resources and best practices for bringing the foundations of global awareness, global learning, and digital citizenship into our daily lessons. Highlighted tools will include Google MyMaps, Google Hangouts, and Common Sense Education.
