We have an exciting panel of Jr. High teachers from Cactus Canyon Jr. High, Apache Junction, AZ to share with us in this week's Classroom 2.0 LIVE show (Saturday, November 1): "Technology Integration in Jr. High." We'd love to have you join us to learn about the engaging ways their students are using technology in their classrooms.
Their presentation description: We are excited to share with you how four junior high teachers have practiced integrating technology so that instruction is relevant and engaging through the use of 21st century learning skills. Project-based learning in social studies (using Ebay to teach economics) and science (collaborative efforts with the local police and fire departments to teach physical science concepts) will be highlighted. Participants will also hear about an award winning school blog that is maintained by Journalism students. Finally, another science teacher will briefly share exercises in engineering design. Team members include Cactus Canyon JHS teachers: Bethany Ligon, Science; Sheryl Anderson,Social Studies; Jason Davis, Journalism/Yearbook; Regan Roach, Science AJUSD Blogs Cactus Canyon Junior High School web page
