In this session we will demonstrate strategies to help teachers successfully use Skype through their Office365 account to bring the outside world in to their building. Learn how to play a Mystery Skype game with a classroom across the country, invite a guest speaker in to discuss your topic first hand, or take a virtual field trip to a new land. All of these and more are available with the click of a button. Come find out how.
Would you like more time to meet with small groups? Create a deeper relationship with students?  This session will provide teachers with practical ideas for easy management of station rotation.  Learn to integrate a variety of free technology tools that actively engage students and place accountability on students for their own learning. These strategies differentiate instruction, allow students to learn at their own pace, and help teachers gain vital instructional time for application of learning.
