Publishing Student Writing with Book Creator (Free Version)

Book Creator is powerful tool for your students to share and publish their writing inside the classroom….and possibly beyond. Book Creator is a website that allows both teachers and students to write and create their own online book. These interactive books can contain many different elements including - photos, videos, drawing, sound recordings, and even embedded html widgets Once these books are finished, teachers can publish to the web. Now anyone with access to an internet connected device can read student-published books! And if students want a paper copy of their book, it can be printed as well. In this workshop, teachers will learn how to create several different types of online, interactive books using Book Creator.
Online via Zoom. Registrants will be sent the Zoom Link prior to the session.

Digital Literacy Reimagined: The SEL Connection

When Digital Citizenship instruction fails to impact students in a meaningful way, we need to consider changing how we think about it. Viewing Digital Citizenship through a Social Emotional Learning lens brings additional layers of understanding. How students behave online involves self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship skills, and responsible decision-making. With lessons designed for metacognition, students reflect on their own thoughts and feelings in a way that creates lasting connections. Join us to explore awesome resources for bringing Digital Citizenship to life with SEL in your classroom.
This workshop will be held on Zoom, the link will be sent prior to the session.
