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, Tammy Moore and Paula Naugle!
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.
