The syllabus is explicit in the need for students to not only “read” and respond to digital and multimodal texts but also to be given opportunities to create their own. What are digital and multimodal texts? Where can they find them to use with their students? What tools are available for student to use to create their own texts (websites, picture books, films, animations etc) and how have other teachers been leading the way in this area?
A workshop @ Coffs Harbour Combined English SDD – T2, 2013
What applications can you use with students and how can you use them? This workshop will introduce Google Docs, Blogs, Wikis, Edmodo and other tools you can use with your students for collaboration, communication and and reflection.
This workshop is similar to the last I presented at Plane Festival of Learning, but has a longer and deeper look at the dimensions of 21st Century Skills, via the LEAP 21 and ITL Frameworks in Teacher Planning and Student Assessment.
I am very excited to be presenting at the Pathfinders and Pioneers Strand. Below is the slide deck for my presentation. This presentation focuses on the LEAP21 Program and a strategy for developing 21st Century learning and teaching opportunities in schools.
