Thought Leadership for Educators (#TL4ED) Webinar and Podcast
Edmoxie hosts a monthly webinar that brings education technology thought leaders to you. Each month, we’ll discuss topics and ask questions to help classroom educators and school/district administrators consider their own practices, and how to improve. There is no cost to attend. Recorded webinars are available via the Archive (below) as well as in podcast form.
Date: January 22 , 2020
Time: 4 PM Eastern
Topic: Using Augmented Reality to Integrate Black History Across the Curriculum
Are you looking for engaging lessons for Black History Month? Have you ever wondered how Augmented Reality fits into your classroom? We’ll discuss and learn about how students can use digital storytelling techniques with Augmented Reality to create their own Black History Videos.
3DBear’s Augmented Reality Creation App allows teachers to conduct Inquiry-based learning projects across the curriculum. In this 45 minute webinar, we will demonstrate teacher-written lessons that allow students to create digital stories about important historical milestones and events that meet ELA and social studies learning standards.
We all know that students learn best when they use all their senses, and this is the essence of how these lessons work. Lesson plans will be made available to all participants.
