Constructing New Learning Landscapes: Evolving Practices in Education
Hosted by Doug Johnson, David Loertscher, and Joyce Valenza
Tuesday, March 23, 2010 at 5pm ET/4pm CT/3pm MT/2pm PT
With the evolution of dozens of powerful Web 2.0 tools, new learning frontiers are opening every day. The new emphasis is on building knowledge rather than mastering the tools. How can emerging technologies be leveraged to create transparent, interactive online spaces that promote collaboration, critical thinking, and accountability? How can schools manage their web presences to facilitate student learning? What role should trans-literacy information skills play in the development of Common Core standards? Attend this webinar to discuss how you can support your students in their quest to explore these new frontiers of learning.
Free for SIGMS members! If you are not a member, now is a great time to join ISTE and receive a year's worth of great benefits while attending this powerful webinar experience. See registration information at http://bit.ly/dllnH6.
