Saturday, February 28, 2015 Student Study Tools
We are excited to have Tammy Moore back to present for us on some of the wonderful student study tools she has discovered, uses and recommends to her virtual home school students and teachers. Students often need help in developing their study habits. Today we are going to talk about some learning theories, tips, and technology that can help students take charge of their personal study time. We will explore the four types of subjects and look at theories and tech tools that work great with each one.
Besides being the fantastic co-moderator for all of our Classroom 2.0 LIVE shows where she faithfully provides closed-captioning for every show, Tammy is an incredibly knowledgeable, talented, creative ed tech enthusiast. Tammy lives in Arkansas and is a Course designer/developer, teacher, trainer, admin at VHSG and an artist, mom, volunteer using Blackboard Collaborate, Moodle, VoiceThread, Cmap, and Adobe eLEarning Suite with a course co-operative called the Virtual Homeschool Group Tammy has spearheaded the development and growth of this co-operative that has the purpose of getting professional grade tools for e-learning out to people that want to offer a free online course for home school students. Her project uses Moodle as an LMS and Blackboard Collaborate for their live, online classroom. As an example of the exciting work that Tammy does check out her earlier presentation on Classroom 2.0 LIVE where she demonstrated how to create our own interactive lessons and games for the computer and iPad for and with our kids using Adobe Captivate ( a tool that will let us make lesson presentations, cool interactive activities and games, software how-tos, screen recordings, self-scoring quizzes (you can even set them up to post the grades automatically to an LMS), and more.

Classroom 2.0 LIVE is an opportunity to gather with other members of the community in real-time events, complete with audio, chat, desktop sharing, and sometimes even video. You are invited to join us for our weekly Saturday show with co-hosts Peggy George, Lorie Moffat, and Tammy Moore!
The show lasts an hour, and links for more information and accessing the Blackboard Collaborate room can be found below and on the Using Collaborate page. We strive to make our shows very beginner-friendly, and if you've never participated in a live web meeting, don't be afraid to come and take a peek at the show's format. We would love for newbies to join us and 'dip their toes' in the conversations until you feel comfortable enough to 'jump in the conversations with both feet'! We want to encourage "experienced Web 2.0 users" to join us to contribute and extend the conversation by providing real-life examples and tips/suggestions.
Weekly sessions will typically include the following:
1. A specific topic will be discussed each week with a special guest presenter, so you can be prepared to bring links, ideas, tools you'd like to share. Once a month the special guest will be a "Featured Teacher" who will share ways he/she is using technology to support learning in their classroom.
2. The "Newbie Question of the Week" (introduction to topic)
3. Announcements of upcoming shows on The Future of Education.
4. A Livebinder is created for every show that includes all of the links shared by the presenter and participants during the webinar.
If you would like to know more about how to access our shows or how to navigate and find things on our website be sure to check out our monthly Livebinders. Click on the tab for "Classroom 2.0 LIVE Resources" and view the screencasts.
