Classroom 2.0 LIVE! - Saturday Shows

Saturday, June 17, 2017
9am PT/10am MT/11am CT/12pm ET
"Open Mic: What’s on your Summer Bucket List?”

Join us on #liveclass20 for a "bang-up" opportunity to wrap up our school year broadcasts and send you into the summer break with awesome ideas and resources being shared in this Open Mic show "What's on your Summer Bucket List?" During this Open Mic session facilitated by the always amazing facilitator extraordinaire, Paula Naugle, participants will take turns getting on the mic to share something related to one of the guiding questions.
Q1 What is the first PD book you plan on reading this summer and why?
Q2 What conferences (live/virtual) would you like to attend this summer and why?
Q3 What new tech tool/toy would you like to add to your tech bag this summer?
Q4 What fun places will you plan to visit this summer?
Q5 What hobbies will you pursue during the summer?

You can sign up to share using this form or if time is available you can just raise your hand to take the mic to share. Everyone who gets on the mic to share will be eligible for a prize drawing! Be sure to check out your audio in advance so you'll know your mic will be working when it's your turn to share! Wear a headset to prevent echo/feedback. We can't wait to be inspired by everyone who will be sharing!

This will be our last show before our annual break for ISTE and the summer break. We will resume our regular shows on Saturday, August 5th with a fabulous presentation by Holly Clark and Tanya Avrith on "The Google Infused Classroom”: Using Google Tools based on pedagogy and making student thinking visible.
