Super Empowering Kids to Become a Global Collaborator With Easy To Use Technologies

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Go paperless while Super Empowering your kids and breaking down your classroom walls with Global Collaboration. Come learn how simple and quick it is to create visually interesting digital writing journals for your students by combining some popular tech out there. The best part is how little time it takes to create and organize an entire set of class journals into one shareable link using Symbaloo and Padlet!
Want to add an interactive collaborative feature? No problem! Give each student a Google Doc. Their work from Padlet can be easily copied and pasted and anyone with the link to the Google Doc will be able to add comments and feedback.
With one master link you can connect yourself, students and even parents to the writing journals accessible from any device.
Want to add another level global collaboration? Add appear.in. Similar to Google Hangouts but 10 times quicker and easier to use. You can connect your students with others for face-to-face collaboration. Share the MASTER LINK and your students will be able to collaborate with anyone in the world!
