Classroom 2.0 LIVE! - Saturday Shows

Join us on Saturday, April 12th, when our special guest will be Donna Román,"Featured Teacher". Donna Adams Román is a 5th grade teacher at Mill Creek School in Illinois, blogger, trainer, and presenter committed to providing rich learning opportunities for her learners and professional learning network. She is a recent recipient of ISTE’s first place SIGOL Online Learning Award (2013) and a Microsoft Innovative Expert Educator. Donna is active in Professional Development online and in her district, CoSN, ISTE, and iEARN.

Educators are pulled in so many constantly changing directions. Donna will discuss how we can address these obligations while providing deep and meaningful learning experiences, not only for our students, but for ourselves as well. Suggestions to work smarter by condensing and combining, and that can in turn deepen teaching, learning, and our lives while we engage fully in the process. 21st Century Learning, Project Based Learning, and Technology will be the common languages.
