NO SHOW: August 30, 2014 Labor Day Holiday Weekend NEXT SHOW: Saturday, September 6, 2014 Encouragement in the Classroom with Joan Young
We are excited to have Joan Young as our special guest on Classroom 2.0 LIVE on September 6, 2014. Joan has recently published her book: Encouragement in the Classroom and she will be sharing some of her best tips and strategies for creating and nurturing an encouraging classroom environment. We all know the factors that can threaten a positive classroom environment: stress from testing, lack of motivation, and problems that students bring from home, for a start. What if we could implement some simple practices to buffer against these factors' negative effects? The good news is that we can. Some of the suggestions Joan will share include how fostering humor, mindfulness, resilience, curiosity, and gratitude in the classroom empowers students to learn from their mistakes, celebrate successes, and actively engage in learning. Follow Joan on Twitter. Her book offers practical, classroom-tested strategies, routines, and rituals that teachers can use immediately to defuse the negative effects of stress and create a stimulating and supportive classroom culture.

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.
Show Format: 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.
