Interactive Teaching Tools for Today's Teacher
Today's modern teacher has access to a wide variety of technology tools and choices; it can seem overwhelming and many teachers are trying to "catch up" to the knowledge our students possess in using these tools. Modern teaching is about more than just the tools - we need to change HOW we teach materials to reflect the integration of these tools. This workshop will highlight some "old school" ways of teaching and why we need to alter these approaches to teach the new modern student. We will highlight approaches to bring you into the new century of education, using a wide variety of apps, websites and free tools available to the new modern teacher!

Social Media Tools in the Classroom
In our current world, social media plays a large role in our ability to connect and share with each other. There is often a reluctance to use these tools within teaching and privacy for our students is always a concern. This workshop will focus on all of the different social media platforms and how to most effectively integrate them into the educational environment. From Facebook to Instagram to Snap Chat to Twitter to YouTube - learn ways that teachers are harnessing the best of what these platforms have to offer and making them work in the classroom. In addition, we will highlight lots of "teacher based" tools that allow educators to safely and effectively change the way our students interact with each other and educational content.
