Ignite Creativity in Your Classroom! Part 2

Event Description

Ignite creativity in your classroom by discovering new tools and strategies that will allow your students to demonstrate their learning in new and exciting ways! The afternoon will bring in a conversation on how students can create audio and video with the Chromebook. We know that some students are better able to learn when they express their learning in non-traditional ways. We will explore how teachers can have their students create podcasts using Soundtrap and leverage quick voice capturing with Vocaroo. The remainder of the afternoon will focus on how to create video with the Chromebook. Video consumption is something that all of our students engage in, and many of them aspire to become “YouTubers.” Why can’t we leverage this desire and teach our students video creation skills while engaging them in our class content?
