Pad Apps Supporting Communication, Productivity, Teaching and Learning

As 21st century educators, we should to provide opportunities for students to demonstrate mastery and understanding of the curriculum not only with text but also with images, audio, and video.

Dr. Wesley Fryer will invite and inspire you to become a better multimedia communicator and a pioneer with digital media in this dynamic day of learning.

Digital literacy today means much more than searching the Internet and using Microsoft Office. To be digitally literate, teachers as well as students need to be able to create and share online a variety of different multimedia products. These media products can be “mapped” to your curriculum. Interactive Writing, Narrated Art, 5 Photo Stories, Narrated Slideshows, Screencasts, Quick Edit Videos, and eBooks are a few of the media products learners should be able to create and safely share online.

We’ll view different examples of student media products and learn about apps and strategies for helping teachers become digitally literate as “media mappers.”

Like a menu at a restaurant, the workshop and the accompanying website and framework are designed to offer a broad view of available options teachers and students can utilize to communicate ideas and demonstrate knowledge, understanding, and skills.

The Mapping Media framework is aligned to the ISTE NETS for Students as well as Common Core State Standards. Educators focused on digital literacy and interested in students building digital portfolios to “show what they know with media” will find Mapping Media a gold mine of practical ideas.

This will be an action packed day full of hand-ons learning. Your confirmation will include a list of Apps to download and install before arriving for the day of learning.
