Announcing the Fall 2015 K-12 Blackboard Innovative Teaching Series
February 16 - Online Instructional Modules: Keeping the Design Process in Mind Presenters: Darlene Schaefer, Natasha Wippel, Brandi Thurmond, Ann Taylor Lusk; Curriculum Instructional Leaders, NCVPS
session will focus on the designing courses aligned to the core
philosophies of the High Five Process, Bloom's Revised Taxonomy, and
Universal Design for Learning. In this session we will highlight
Blackboard tools that can be utilized to build content that aligns with
these philosophies for creating online instructional modules. When you
keep the design process in mind, you help teachers stay on track during
the development process in developing a course that will lead to
improved student outcomes. Come join us for a session on how to keep
the design process in mind as you develop online instructional modules
for blended, traditional, and mastery-based courses.
The first 10-20 minutes will consist of a mini-presentation on testing deployment settings in Learn, followed by Q&A. These lunch and learned sessions are designed to provide practical how-to and best practices with Blackboard teaching and learning solutions as well as provide a live forum for open discussion with Blackboard experts.
12/7 Session: Going Mobile with the new Blackboard Collaborate and Chromebooks
3:30 PM ET Valora Hodges, Educational Technology Engineer, IDLA
IDLA is currently working to implement the new Blackboard Collaborate in a variety of ways. We have set up mobile web conferencing carts that are used to connect remote employees and bring them into organizational meetings. Mobile carts will also be deployed to a number of rural schools to connect to live lessons through our Hybrid course delivery model. Our students are learning about and utilizing live teacher support in our Pathways to Success course. This course has been developed to be Chromebook friendly and the new Collaborate now allows them to learn about and to access the live tutoring centers IDLA offers on a Chromebook.
12/14 Session: Virtual Field Trips: Show Your Students the World
3:30 PM ET Dani Tymitz, Instructional Technology Coordinator, Learn21
Use the technology in your classroom to take your students on a virtual trip. By using Blackboard to help your students navigate through images, sites and primary sources, you can give your students a world class experience without spending one moment on a school bus! Virtual field trips can immerse your students in other cultures and lands without leaving the classroom. In this session, I will explore free tools to create virtual field trips as well as best practices for using them in the classroom.
