Below you will find links to workshops I have presented in the Asia-Pacific region.
IB Asia Pacific Conference, Singapore
Working once again with @chamada, The Networked Educator aimed to highlight the importance of every educator developing a Professional Learning Network (PLN) to enhance and develop their own learning. The workshop outlined the reasons why PLNs are crucial for today’s learners, provided some case studies of real teachers’ PLNs (across PYP, MYP, DP & Admin), and highlighted the tools those teachers recommended. Action plans were then developed so participants could make a start on building or enhancing their PLN.
Together with Robyn Treyvaud & Jeff Plaman, we presented a workshop about the ways in which UWCSEA is implementing the Generation Safe 360 framework for Digital Citizenship at UWCSEA.
Digital citizenship education works when:
- Every educator is aware they have responsibility
- Parents are involved as partners
- Students lead the way by sharing their perspectives
Teach IT, Singapore
Twitter 4 Teachers
This was a workshop I presented at Teach IT 2011 in Singapore. It was designed to help teachers develop a Personal Learning Network (PLN) through Twitter. It was comprised of 2 parts – an overview, where I explained what teachers could gain from being a part of an online community through Twitter, and a hands on section, where I provided support to participants who were getting set up with Twitter.
A repeat of the workshop offered at the Learning Roundtable, investigating iPad apps that encourage innovation and creativity.
Learning Roundtable, Singapore
In this hands-on workshop, participants explored iPad apps that encourage students to innovate and use their creativity as creators rather than consumers of content. While this workshop was geared towards the Primary School, ideas could easily be transferred to Middle and High school learners as well.
Learning 2.011, Shanghai
This was a hands-on workshop at Learning 2.011 in Shanghai, designed to highlight the iPad as a tool for creation of content, rather than consumption.
