Using Nearpod and creating lessons to use during instruction
*This workshop requires you to have access to Nearpod in your district. Audience Teachers
Cloverbank Elementary RM 219
March 31, 2020 4-7PM
During this workshop, we will focus on using Nearpod to enhance instruction. Nearpod can be used in all subject areas to encourage all students to be active participants during instruction. While using Nearpod, students will log in with a code to join your lesson. The entire class will participate at the same time and you can collect data from their responses to use for further instruction. We will work on creating lessons that you can use in your own classroom. It might be helpful to bring a few ideas (topics, vocabulary lists, manuals) to use while creating your lessons.
Teaching with focus in the STEAM Lab
This is a 5 part workshop series. You may register for any number of the workshops or take all 5 for a full 15 hour course credit.
This series of 5 workshops serves to help teachers utilize the STEAM resources in their buildings. We’ve heard from our teachers that they would like to be able to use the STEAM Lab or other resources more effectively for classroom instruction. We will break each session down to look at the STEAM resources through the lens of each of the components; Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math. The sessions will be hands-on and give participants time to work with various materials and get a feel for how they can effectively be used under each focus area. Workshops will take place in the FRONTIER STEAM LAB, but content can be transferred to any classroom. Some of the items may be available through BOCES for lending. Most appropriate for grades K-5.
