(click on title/link for session details)
I) Literacy Playground: Innovative Literacy & STEM Learning [PLN submission: Accepted Playground]
- Sunday, June 23, 9:30 am–12:30 pm EDT (Eastern Daylight Time)
- Monday, June 24, 11:30 am–12:30 pm EDT (Eastern Daylight Time)
The Playground is set up so that attnendees can follow their instincts and visit tables manned by presenters, following their interest. They are free to spend time at each listening, viewing, and trying hands-on what captures their attention and imagination. The tables will feature explanations, work samples, demonstrations, handouts, and more.
The conference session is a panel/presentation style, hour-long formal session (presenters give a 10 minute presentation and participate in the discussion). It's a simple format in which we highlight a few resources that we believe offer a step forward for Literacy Instruction - tech-based resources and practices that teachers will find interesting, NEWish, supportive, and effective in helping them better teach their students.
For both the playground and the session, we especially like to highlight things that are (at least in part, FREE - could be a free, basic level of the resource or a free trial period, etc.). In addition to the session, we do a podcast to accompany it so that members who can't be at the session can get some of what's presented (see our blog for samples of how this works out - link below). Might you be interested in being part of our small group of highlighted resources/presenters? If so, please use the links below to let us know your interest and what you’d like to present. We’ll follow up with more details later.
