As a primary teacher, your students’ families become your co-teachers in a virtual classroom. So, it’s important to not only connect with new students but also their families. In this session, we’re giving you creative activities and ideas to build up home buy-in, set expectations, and begin to build relationships. You’re going to leave this session with a plan for how you will communicate, connect and support your students to set them up for success and take all of the mystery, confusion, and overwhelm out of the equation.
Primary Impactful Technology Use
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.

In this hands-on make and take-style workshop, we’ll create lessons and activities your little learners can use right away.
