Before building lesson plans around a new app, it’s critical to ask: Will your students will be using that technology to enhance learning or will they be using technology to transform learning? Do these tools support the different cognitive levels of the learners their classrooms? In this workshop learn about the SAMR Model and Bloom’s Taxonomy, two frameworks used by educators to help design tasks and lessons that use technology, as well as understand how they impact student outcomes. With the help of DigitalJLearning Education Technology Consultant Monica Brandwein, explore the apps and websites you use and organize a digital library based on these learning models. This workshop is appropriate for day school teachers of all grades and subjects.
Breakfast begins at 9 a.m. and the workshop will take place from 9:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. All activities will be in Lab A at The Jewish Education Project.
