I’ve added a link to the top of my blog today to a webinar I’m sharing on May 7, 2008, for the CILC (Center for Interactive Learning and Collaboration) entitled, “Quick Victories for Blended Learning.” I first heard the term “quick victories” from Marco Torres, during or after one of his presentations at the MACE 2007 conference in Manhattan, Kansas. (My notes from his keynote are available.)
I am certainly interested and committed to the goal of comprehensive school reform, but I also recognize the need teachers have for instructional strategies, tools, and ideas which can be readily implemented in their classroom right away, without a need for securing large amounts of grant funding or other resources. How can I more effectively use the technology tools available in my classroom today, to design and invent learning tasks for students which have a high probability of authentically engaging them? That is the topic I will tackle in this upcoming webinar, with a specific focus on blended learning tools including digital storytelling.
I have not completed a new wiki curriculum page for this workshop, but will be working on it in upcoming weeks. You can check out my presentations and workshops on blended learning and digital storytelling in the meantime. 🙂
