This can't miss workshop will change the way you think about the world we live in today and the significant role you play in it!

Join us as Julie discusses the importance of media literacy (the average American spends over 11 hrs/day) and how to actually implement it into what you are already teaching, no matter the age. Julie will showcase examples and then break it down by topic (art, social studies, math etc). You will see how easy it is to include and why the students LOVE talking media. How we cannot delay because our students are living in a media world and no one is helping them navigate it.

Julie will also present short tutorials on Twitter, Instagram, Voxer Periscope and Padlet and share ways and examples to use these tools to both engage students in and outside of the classroom. Social media really breaks down the walls of the classroom and demonstrates to students that learning can happen 24/7.

Participants will learn web 2.0 techniques to engage students in the classroom and will leave with a Livebinder full of tips and tricks that will keep students awake and at the edge of their seats. Teachers in all disciplines will leave this session not only motivated, but with concrete ways they can incorporate media literacy within their lessons to design wildly engaging experiences for students that spark their critical thinking.
