K-12 Online Teaching Academy: “Teaching From the Inside Out”

George Barcenas (Twitter: @mvsgbarcenas), technology coordinator at Bellevue Union School District, led this conversation.

When we design a lesson we take on the responsibility of telling the story. Writer Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie TedTalk about the “Danger of a single story” opened my eyes to the responsibility we have as educators. Developing lessons that allow our students to experience the moment isn’t the driving force behind book companies. In this session we will look at creating those experiences by using Google Forms, Slides and Video.

K-12 Online Teaching Academy: Writing Instruction and Feedback for Digital Equity

Jen Roberts (Twitter: JenRoberts1), National Board Certified English teacher and adjunct faculty at the University of San Diego, led this conversation.

What we know about teaching writing well has not changed, but the tools we have available for teaching writing have expanded. We will work through the writing process learning about new methods and tools to keep our students moving forward in their writing development. You will gain practical and accessible strategies you can apply to your writing instruction immediately, no matter where your students are in their writing. Classroom tested, teacher approved, I promise these are the tools and strategies worth learning. They will save you dozens of hours over the rest of this school year, and your students will like them too.
