Join us on Saturday, December 7th, when Tracy Watanabe (Tech Integration Specialist and Instructional Coach), Jon Castelhano (Director of Technology) and a team of amazing 3rd grade teachers from Apache Junction, AZ will be our special guests. Learn about the fantastic ways they are integrating technology and connecting globally in their classrooms.
Common Core learning standards, 21st century learning, global collaborations, and project-based learning (PBL) go hand-in-hand. They will present how the four of these complement each other in the classroom; and how the teacher, Common Core coach, Technology Integration Specialist, and Technology Director can nurture that 21st century, student-centered learning environment. They will share resources, ideas, and guides for how to build 21st century, student-centered classrooms that focus on learning standards with solutions that are replicable in other classrooms around the globe.
