Are you ready to ride the digital wave with your students? Jump into the water and prepare to launch a wave of excitement in your classroom. Through the creative use of digital tools, teachers are able to provide opportunities for students to create, collaborate and communicate. You might ask, “What does student creation and collaboration look like in the classroom? How can we incorporate technology into the learning process?“ Through this session, participants will discover how two elementary school teachers use tools such as Voki, Powtoons, Book Creator, Adobe Spark and Google Suite tools to amplify student creation, communication, and collaboration.

This presentation is geared towards elementary teachers of all subject areas. However, ideas can be adapted for middle or high school teachers as well. Our TSIP focus is on the learning facilitator, showing ways we use technology to personalize learning. The digital tools presented are used to foster the 4Cs: critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and creativity. Our district has implemented a fifth C: citizenship, to instill community building and relationships within the classroom as well.

Riding the Techno Wave in our classrooms is a vital component to the success of our students.
In our digital age, technology is ever-changing. As Jon Kabat-Zinn said “You can’t stop the waves, but you can learn to surf.” Our students are more excited than ever to ride the big kahunas of technology, always hungry for the next wave of tech tools they can use to show their learning. Let’s make their experience epic!
