Collaborative Discussion and NewsELA

Getting students to "step up" and discuss issues can be a struggle. Also, creating differentiated resources can be a challenge as well.

This session will take participants through the intersection of pedagogical models such as differentiated resources and instruction, and tech integration with Chrome Apps. The first part will allow participants to explore "NewsELA" and how to set up class lists and track student progress on current events. The second part will take participants through "Collaborative Discussion" as a means for group synthesis and consensus involving microblogging and active questioning.

No matter what you teach, these activities can be molded into many different grade level applications and subjects.
