*Building Collaborative Learning Communities to Increase Student Engagement
Laura Thomas
Thursday, October 25th, 2018 at 7PM

Powerful learning communities don't just happen. The process of building
classrooms where students take risks, do meaningful work and engage
together in deep learning has to be ongoing and intentionally designed.
Building collaborative learning communities requires the teacher to
facilitate the group through the stages of knowledge, communication,
cooperation, and collaboration while also building trust over time.  Sounds
like a tall order when you already have myriad other responsibilities, but
the payoff is worthwhile- students who are safe enough to shine and
challenged enough to take risks. In this webinar, we will explore skills
and strategies for building the CLC as well why they're more necessary now
than ever.

Digital Citizenship Across the Content Areas

Kristen Mattson
Wednesday, January 16th, 2019 at 7PM

So many educators think of digital citizenship as "one more thing" on their
already full curricular plates. This doesn't need to be the case! In this
webinar, you will be introduced to a plethora of ideas that range from
incorporating social media etiquette into your elementary literacy block to
teaching students about screen time in a middle school math class as well
as using tech ethics as the basis for debates in a high school level social
studies course. This webinar will have plenty of ideas for every content
area and grade level ranging from quick bell-ringers to multi-day units of
instruction. No matter who you are or what you teach, you are bound to walk
away with some great ideas!

Dr. Kristen Mattson is a high school library media specialist, staff
developer, adjunct professor and curricular consultant. After writing the
AATC John Laska Dissertation of the Year on secondary digital citizenship
curriculum, Dr. Mattson went on to write the ISTE book, "Digital
Citizenship in Action: Empowering Students to Engage in Online
Communities." She is also the winner of the 2018 ISTE Emerging Leader Award.
