Tech-Infused Writer's Workshop

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Participants will walk out of this session with an arsenal of ideas to infuse technology into their writer's workshop experience. Jake will explain the tools with "hacks" on how to make these resources work seamlessly in the classroom. The participants will get concrete ideas on how to refresh the writer's workshop model with engaging and exciting technology. Participants will use the interactive whiteboard app Explain Everything to build student voice while making publishing very simple. They will also learn how to use multi-app approaches to publish student-writing pieces using Explain Everything. Participants will see how apps like Lego Maker Movie make stop-motion animation accessible to elementary students. They will also see how green screen brings their students stories to life while building presentation and voice building skills. We will also learn how students can code stories using the app Scratch Jr.

Please download the following apps prior to arrival at the session:
Explain Everything, Book Creator, iMovie for the iPad, ChatterKid, Lego Movie Maker, Do Ink Green Screen, and Scratch Jr.
