Did you open a Twitter account after attending a workshop but don’t know what to do with it now? Never opened a Twitter account because you don’t know how it could possibly be relevant to you as an educator? Teachers, administrators, and media specialists should attend this workshop to learn how to connect with innovative, cutting edge, national and international education mavens via Twitter. Learn from an education veteran how Twitter has provided more network connections and professional development resources in one year than all district/school sponsored PD courses combined have provided over twenty years.

Have you ever wished that you had more time for hands-on work, collaborative projects, or labs during class? Perhaps you have heard about the Flipped classroom concept, but weren't really sure what it is or if it could work in your classroom. In this session you will learn not only what a flipped classroom is, but also how it can support Response to Intervention (RTI) Tier 2 and Tier 3 intervention strategies. We will also show how it fits within the Rigor/Relevance framework. As an example of what can be done, we will explore the Khan Academy and show ways in which their pre-made materials can be used in your flipped classroom. Lastly, we will explore ways you or your students can produce custom flipped classroom materials from your own classroom.
Grade Level: All
