Sessions

Beginning with the end in mind

30 minutes

In this session, we will focus on the learning traits and dispositions we are looking to develop in our learners. Building a profile of the type of learner will allow us to design pedagogy to suit as well as allow us to distinguish the various roles the learner and teacher will play throughout the unit.

Making the web work for you

1 hour

In this session we will look at how we read on the web. We will then utilize the power of the browser with Chrome extensions to declutter the web and to make it work for you. This will include being able to easily find what you are looking for through advanced search techniques, capturing key information by sticky noting the web and having the web read to you.

Developing good digital habits

1 hour

Learn how to manage distractions and build high levels of focus and flow through binaural beats. Use techniques such as monotasking and timeboxing to focus your attention and lift your productivity. Learn how Trello, Kanban and the Pomodoro technique can help you and your students focus and work productively.

Feedback and Synthesis

1 hour

Capture the thinking of all of your students, not just those with the most to say. Use applications like Verso, Poll Everywhere and Socrative to capture feedback or have students demonstrate understanding.

Towards true collaboration

1 hour

Use learning applications such as OneNote and the GSuite to scaffold to learners how to collaborate effectively.

Fake it till you create it - bluffing your way to creativity

1 hour

Harness the power of learning applications such as Canva and TouchCast to make your digital creations look world class. Create everything from a logo to a presentation to an interactive video.
