NEXT SHOW: Saturday, February 6, 2016
We are very excited to have the always inspiring Sydney Sheren returning to Classroom 2.0 LIVE to share her technology passions. Her presentation: "Small Talk about Small Tech" revolves around some of the best technology products and applications for the classroom including virtual reality, Google Cardboard, 3D printing, Pocket and Wacom tablets. Get ready to sit down, relax, drink some tea, and have a nice conversation about some great tech products and how you can get your students more engaged by using them in your classroom.
Sydney is a 10th grade student and currently the Sophomore class President at Westhampton Beach high school. She created and continues to supervise and edit the middle school's newsletter. Her interests in technology led her to be a Keynote speaker at the Student Technology Conference and at the Suffolk ASSET Conference in front of 800 teachers and educators last year. My passion for film making has led her to screen one of her movies at the local movie theater and to attend the New York Film Academy for two summers. This past summer, she attended a program on Leadership and Global Engagement at the Leadership Institute at Brown University. She is inspired to teach others why technology is helpful and how they can easily use it to learn in a quick, easy, fun way.

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 Classroom 2.0 LIVE.
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.
