Digital Classrooms: How to Make them Great for Students and Manageable for Teachers

May 5, 2016 from 9:00 am - 2:00 pm


Teachers across the U.S. are in search of a pedagogically sound balance between traditional classroom practices and the 21st century classroom which incorporates the benefits of online applications; utilizing digital tools to teach beyond simple knowledge acquisition to the encouragement of skill application.

Here is an opportunity for teachers to learn how to integrate online components into their classrooms, to encourage and facilitate student collaboration, creativity, and engagement. Introducing or expanding online components into the classroom has become necessary for all teachers, regardless of the grade or subject taught.

In this seminar, Dr. Miller will guide teachers in navigating through technology possibilities without being overwhelmed, and then will demonstrate how to implement and utilize a learning management system to enhance student engagement and achievement. He will also explain and review the means to simplify lesson plan management and organization by proper use of a learning management system. The important aspect of integration of social media into the classroom will also be explored.

Target audience: K-12 teachers, school administrators and consultants.
