  • Technology Integration: Empathy In Action
    Carol Glanville, Education Technology Consultant
    The influence of technology in the day to day lives of our students and, increasingly, their families is undeniable. As educators in non-public schools, we can use empathy and curiosity to increase student engagement in every lesson. Walk a mile in the shoes of your students and discover how effective technology integration can foster engagement, deeper learning and strengthen formation.
  •  OER and Creative Commons
    Stacy Schuh, Professional Learning Services Manage, Michigan Virtual

    Blended learning is the combination of excellent teaching and excellent digital content. Open Educational  Resource (OER) options are a great way to begin to build a high quality digital curriculum for your blended classroom. This session will provide an explanation of OER as well as updates on state-wide initiatives with regards to OER.
