Session 1 Lesson design is a crucial component to the classroom delivery of curriculum. There are many models and tools available to help in the design of lessons, but not in integrating the Interactive Whiteboard with the QEP. The goal of this workshop is to give experienced IWB teachers of all subject areas an overview of lesson design as well as the time to network with other Interactive Whiteboard users and to begin developing individual lessons using Interactive Whiteboards as a pedagogical tool. Please feel free to bring your own laptop. We will not have the time to load software during the session so please ensure that you have the latest version of Notebook software (at least version 10.6) along with the Lesson Activity Toolkit 2. Media Literacy This hands-on workshop will address the Media Literacy and Production requirements of Session 2 the secondary ELA program. Discover planning and creation strategies for media production in your classroom Learn how to use basic tools that come with your computer or are available for free on the Internet. Explore podcasting and enhanced slide shows. These media production techniques can be used to create powerful messages that can help you evaluate the development of competency in any subject area. Bring your own laptop and digital camera if you have one. Laptops and cameras will be available for those who don't. Mac requirements: iMovie and GarageBand PC requirements: MovieMaker and Audacity EPearl, an ePortfolio as a Tool to Organize, Structure, Reflect and Grow In this full-day, hands-on workshop, participants will engage in and reflect on the portfolio process while exploring EPearl, an on-line portfolio tool available in many Québec school Session 3 boards. Through video excerpts of interviews, sharing by practitioners who use the tool, discussions and reflection, workshop participants will come away with a better understanding as to why portfolio is a powerful pedagogical tool and how it helps students become more aware of their thinking and learning. Current portfolio leaders, users and educators interested in developing a portfolio practice will find here the rationale for their portfolio practice as well as concrete ideas and tools to help make it happen in their schools and classes. Note: ePearl is a bilingual tool and the workshop will be given in both languages. This session is a hands-on workshop with laptop computers. Bring your own if you have one. Wireless capabilities required. Taking it Global - Take your Classroom Global! Come and spend a day learning about how you can become an active member of TIGed, an online community of globally minded educators from over 100 countries. Session 4 To get the most from this session, we recommend that you bring a partner from your school. LEARN will pay the membership for any school in the English community who wishes to join TIGed. Taking IT Global (TIG) operates the world’s most popular online community of young leaders. TIG members inspire each other to make a difference, learn about issues that matter, and find out how to constructively channel their energy and ideas. With a growing membership of close to 300,000 individuals in over 200 countries, the site, www.tigweb.org has reached 10 million youth since its launch in 2000. As TIG's vibrant global community has evolved, educators have sought to integrate its resources and focus on action-based learning into their teaching. This was made easier in 2006 with the launch of the TakingITGlobal for Educators (TIGed) program. TIGed comprises a community of educators interested in empowering their students to think and act as world citizens, a collection of resources that facilitate the inclusion of global perspectives in the classroom, and a virtual classroom that allows students to use technology to learn with and about peers the world over.
