    Introduction to Digital Breakouts (Webinar)

    You have probably heard the buzz about Breakout EDU. But have you experienced a Digital Breakout? In some ways, this form of breakout is more conducive to the "average” school room. No classroom set-up is required, students work in collaborative teams on a shared device, and there are no issues with those pesky locks! In this webinar, participants will experience a digital breakout and be informed of the steps that it takes to create one. If you are "game,” you can then sign up for a 6-hour online course where you will learn how to build your own and can get individual attention from the instructor to make it happen. Yes, there are some "canned” breakouts online, but if you want one that is customized to your class and discipline, you will gain much in creating your own. They may take some time and thought to create, but once you have done the legwork, they can be used over and over with students. They provide the same engaged learning experiences for students that traditional Breakouts involve - critical thinking, teamwork and complex problem solving.

    Differentiation Through Choice (ONLINE)

    According to Dr. Catlin Tucker, "student agency, or a students' ability to make key decisions about their learning experience, is an essential aspect of blended learning.” Choice boards and "playlists” are simply digital documents that outline specific resources and tasks, but they are also strategies for blended learning when we combine active, engaged learning online with active, engaged learning offline. This session will unpack some essentials of creating choice boards and playlists richly enhanced by digital technology tools.
