The morning sessions (9:45 to 10:45) had a number of workshops that I thought I already had a fair amount of knowledge on (Google Docs, facebook etc..); so I challenged myself to attend a session that I wouldn’t normally select. To begin, its Science based (have I mentioned that my first love is Literacy, my second love is Technology, my third love is Math, my fourth love is…well, it isn’t Science!). 🙂
Regardless, I’m glad that I attended. I’ve learned about a very valuable resource for Science teachers across Ontario. Its a website called Green Learning and its amazing. It has an Education Database, Curriculum access and room for teachers to set up a classroom. Very cool, and I’ll have to explore it when I have a bit more time.
But, even neater than that, I’m actually watching 2 educators interview an expert, and the whole thing is being video-taped. Once the session is over, the video will be edited and then posted as a videocast so that people all over Canada (the world!) can view it. I’m the audience in this show-in-progress! SO NEAT! (Can I pretend for just a moment that I’m the audience in some famous talk show? I’ve always wanted to do that!). 🙂
So what am I taking out of this workshop? Well, watch for my students performing interviews in the near future, editing them and then posting them as videocasts! So cool!
