Peggy George, Lorie Moffat and Tammy Moore will be hosting another Classroom 2.0 LIVE show. As an extension to the Classroom 2.0 Ning community, Classroom 2.0 “LIVE” shows are opportunities to gather with other educators in real-time events, complete with audio, chat and desktop sharing. A Google calendar of upcoming shows is available at http://live.classroom20.com/calendar.html.
Join us on Saturday, February 15th, when we will be hosting an “Open Mic” show on the topic of Blended Learning. We are trying a new format for this show and hope you will be as excited as we are about it. Our Classroom 2.0 Advisory Team member extraordinaire, Paula Naugle, suggested this concept as a way to provide even more interaction and participation in the live show. For this show only there will not be a guest presenter, but we are inviting all of you to join us and take the mic to engage in a conversation about blended learning. This will be similar to an EdCamp format where everyone comes together to explore and discuss a topic but it is being done virtually rather than face-to-face. Come with your ideas, resources, and questions and together we will learn about what blended learning is, what it might look like in classrooms for students of all ages (K-12 to Adult), how it is being used to provide authentic, engaging learning experiences, and more. Paula will facilitate the conversation and we hope you’ll come prepared to share something with your headset/earbuds on to take the mic and add to the conversation. We’ll have an awesome Livebinder prepared with blended learning resources and will look forward to adding your resources to the Livebinder. Invite your colleagues who are using blended learning to join us in the conversation and we’ll all learn together.
