NEXT SHOW: Saturday, Feb. 13, 2016
We are really looking forward to hearing from our special guest, Sam Gliksman, on our show this week. Sam is the author of 'Creating Media for Learning' and he has some great tips and tools to share with us for designing student-centered projects! Mobile devices are redefining the nature of our everyday interactions and media creation has become part of our everyday language. If communication is the heart of education then media creation can and should be utilized for deeper and more effective learning. In this webinar we'll look at how to design student-centered projects that use formats such as video, animation, eBooks and more. If you have a mobile device Sam would like you to download the free DAQRI app prior to the webinar so you will be prepared to experience how it works.

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.
