Seesawing in the Classroom
We are excited to welcome Peg Volak as our special guest presenter for this webinar on "Seesawing in the Classroom." Peg will share how she embraces and engages technology that allows students to showcase what they know, document their learning over the course of the year, and to share with parents and teachers in real time. Seesaw is an easy-to-use app that enables the learners to show off what they know using pictures, videos, drawings, camera roll/uploads, notes, and links. She will show you how to create an account, set up a new class, and demonstrate how students can upload their WOW work! Classroom examples of how they use Seesaw in their room will be shared and tools for further learning will be discussed.
Peg Volak is in her 25th year of teaching. She teaches amazing 2nd graders in Bucks County, Sellersville, PA. She integrates technology into all subjects, collaborates with others, and is always eager to try the newest tech tool. Her greatest passion is infusing technology so her students are armed with the necessary skills needed for their future. In addition, she is always looking for a way to weave fun into student’s learning. Peg is the recipient of many grants with Donor’s Choose, Pennridge Community Education Foundation, and IPEVO’s Wishpool. She is a Seesaw Ambassador, ClassDojo Mentor, Plickers Ambassador, Newsela Captain, as well as a Choose To Be Nice Ambassador. She hosts ‘Tech Talk with the Teachers’ each month to encourage the teachers in her building to learn and grow from each other. Peg also opens the doors to her classroom early for “The Discovery Tech Club” each Wednesday morning, so the students can have more time learning with robots in the classroom. Her personal interest with robots has enabled her to teach coding to students at a young age.
