NEXT SHOW: Saturday, September 27, 2014 Kathy Cassidy: Featured Teacher
We are thrilled to have Kathy Cassidy back on Classroom 2.0 LIVE to share her amazing journey of becoming a connected educator with her students. Kathy is a grade one teacher for Prairie South Schools in Moose Jaw, SK, Canada. Since 2005, She has a classroom blog and blogs for each of her students. On the classroom blog, she shares classroom happenings through pictures and video showing what the students are learning. Her students’ blogs have developed into online portfolios, showcasing their learning in writing, reading, math, science, social studies and health. They use drawings, screencasts, podcasts and videos to help convey their ideas. They also use wikis or google docs to collect information that will help their learning. They regularly use Skype to connect with other classrooms, friends or experts who can help to answer our questions. She uses a constantly changing list of other online tools as they are appropriate in her classroom as well as Nintendo DS and recently, a class set of iPads.
Her first book, Connected From the Start: Global Learning in the Primary Grades was published in 2013. She has won several awards, including the Canadian Innovative Teacher Award from Microsoft, the Canadian Regional Award for Reading and Technology from the International Reading Association, the Kay L. Bitter Award from ISTE and a Best in Class Award from Best Buy Canada.

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.
