Making a Better World: Digital Citizenship Resources for K-12

Digital Citizenship

I never had an idea of this sort. When I heard digital citizenship ... I was like ... WHAT ??? What is that ? Then I thought may be just to be techno-savvy means "Digital Citizenship" ! But but but ... when Kelly Mendoza started throwing light on the concept ... it was very much precious knowledge and information. It is all about spreading awareness among teachers, students and parents about the pros and cons of technology, media,…

Using Theatre to Illuminate Core Subject Matter

This was one of my interests ! Though I am a mathematician, I also have a heart beating for drama and theatre. 

I have worked with students to put up a skit on geometrical shapes ... and this session made me recall my memories. Also, we discussed about how we can integrate all the core subjects in the production of a play. 

Actually, yes we can surely make the subject more interesting using theatre arts in the classroom or using the subject matter into theatre…

Digital Leadership: Changing Paradigms for Changing Times

Digital Leadership

This was one of the biggest events among the ones I attended. I was very much fantasized about the new title of Eric’s book “Digital Leadership” … the day it was published. I already asked the Librarian of my school to buy at least one copy but it isn’t available yet in Indian markets.

Edmodo – An Asynchronous Métier

Through this session I was able to find out about a new teaching platform - Edmondo. The advantages of using it were very nicely explained by the presenter and I've started exploring it.

Students as Producers of Content, Not Merely Consumers

A very useful session that enriched my digital tools knowledge, being thus able to use various digital tools in order to teach students. The suggestions given by the presenter were indeed of help. I understood the importance of giving students the possibility of choosing their own topic when writing. I will definitely apply it in my class.

Broadening Differentiation In Teaching and Learning

A lot has been said about the different types of learning styles, namely visual, auditory and kinaesthetic. Every effective learning and teaching experience has been designed to meet the three different styles. Differentiation is however increasingly getting broader as various extrinsic factors come into play as major contributors to the way a learner learns.
