A Nuts and Bolts "How to" Session

Length: 6 hours

Audience: K-12 Teachers, Curriculum Specialists


Description: Student engagement is a critical component of effective classroom instruction. Our world is full of images and sounds, but our lessons are not! This session is designed to teach “how-to” and “where to get” free educational resources that will enhance your existing lessons. (EX: locating, creating and using electronic files, +/- of various file types, downloading video and audio files, inserting media files into a PPT, etc.)


As a result of this work participants will...

  • find appropriate resources for their subject/grade level.

  • learn how to download video and audio files.

  • learn ways to embed electronic files into daily lessons

  • leave with a list of technology resources to explore on their own.


Practical Ways to Use Technology in the Classroom

Length: 3 or 6 hours

Audience: K-12 Teachers, Curriculum Specialists


Description: How can educators use available technologies to expand their learning environment beyond the classroom and engage all learners? Learn ways to use the tech tools you already have! Explore a multitude of great free resources! Plan efficient and effective ways to incorporate technology into your classroom using lessons you have already created or new lessons.


As a result of this work participants will…

  • become familiar with the Arkansas Standards that explicitly require technology.

  • learn ways to embed technology experiences within existing lessons.

  • become familiar with quality OER resources and Web 2.0 tools that provide student learning/creation opportunities that are not otherwise available.
