Since he began teaching in 1997, Holbrook has been interested in the use of technology to facilitate learning in the classroom. Unimpressed with the online platforms provided by the university, Holbrook found out about edWeb through a colleague and was immediately pleased with the wealth of opportunity for collaboration and discussion. edWeb makes collaboration outside the classroom simple for Holbrook’s busy doctoral students, many of whom also balance families and full time jobs.
In this webinar Holbrook Mahn, a professor at the University of New Mexico, will demonstrate how he uses edWeb to create highly engaging learning communities for his higher ed courses, making learning much more collaborative for his students.
In this webinar, Beth and Douglas will present the design thinking process. They will show examples of different kinds of makerspaces, from simple to complex, and discuss how teachers can incorporate design thinking into their learning environments.
edWeb.net and Nureva have come together to create this free professional learning community (PLC) to help teachers and school leaders learn how to create learning environments that foster student collaboration to ensure that every individual can make a real contribution, and what role technology can play in the process. The new PLC offers educators a place to post questions, share practical tips, and get feedback from experts and peers on the issues and challenges in fostering teamwork in the classroom.
This webinar will explore how two secondary librarians serve as technology innovators, teacher-leaders, co-teachers, literacy specialists, and “other duties as assigned.”
Join tech enthusiast Shannon Holden as he navigates through this new tech-sharing educational community.
Join Kevin Baird to discuss what the best practices and what the failure points are for classroom collaboration.
Join Shannon Holden as he shows administrators, teachers, counselors, and librarians how to begin building an effective and responsive professional learning network.
In this webinar, attendees will gain a deeper understanding of why collaboration is a 21st century skill and how to foster a stronger creative, collaborative school culture.
Educators today are rethinking and reshaping their practice to align with the demands of a rapidly changing wired world. Consequently, a greater emphasis has been placed on skills such as creativity, collaboration, critical thinking, design, play, story, and student agency, all of which can be leveraged by video games. In this edWeb.net webinar presented by the Gaming-Based Learning community, Canadian educator Paul Darvasi shared many practical classroom examples to discuss how video games, as an essential manifestation of contemporary culture, are naturally conducive to learning in the 21st century.
