The use of PBL and technology allows learners to go beyond surface level learning into higher order taxonomies. In this participant-driven workshop, we will look at the educational benefits of many technology platforms including software such as iMovie, Garage Band, Audacity, iPad apps such as Noteability, Haiku Deck, Voicethread, learning, management systems such as Moodle and Schoology, and web-based tools such as Google drive, Prezi, and social media platforms. With our powers combined, we have tips and tricks to share about structures and activities including back channeling, media creation, and more that work at a variety of levels and subject areas. Bring your own device.

Drive provides an office suite of productivity applications (similar to MS Office), that offers collaborative “realtime” editing on documents, spreadsheets, presentations, and more. Explanation and demonstration of the many uses for Google Drive will be shown during this workshop. Participants will have many opportunities for “hands on” learning with the Drive tool.

Course Descr.: Chrome Apps deliver an experience as capable as a native app (much like Apple’s apps for iPads and iPhones), but as safe as a web page. While Chrome Apps look and behave like native apps, they are, in fact, much more powerful. In addition to being available online, these apps can be accessed offline as well as on mobile devices. Several of the apps work well with Common Core standards and specific content areas such as math, reading, science, and social studies. Various free instructional apps will be introduced and demonstrated. Participants will have opportunities to ask or share how specific apps can meet their students’ needs. A Google+ community will be set up to provide on-going support well after the workshop has concluded.
