Dr. Wesley Fryer (@wfryer) presents a variety of full, half day, and multi-day workshops focused on effective and engaging ways to use technology resources to support teaching and learning. A linked list of Wesley’s past workshops is available on his handouts / presentation resources wiki.
Some of Wesley’s current workshops include:
iPad Media Camp (3 day workshop)
iPad Media Camp is a three day hands-on workshop designed to inspire and equip educators to facilitate student media projects using iPads. Participants should BYOI (bring your own iPad) to camp and install required apps in advance. Participating teachers are students in a fully iPad integrated classroom for the 3 days of camp, and collaborate with others to create different media projects each day. Day 1 focuses on creating narrated slideshows and screencasts. Day 2 is all about creating and safely sharing “Quick Edit” videos. Day 3 focuses on interactive writing and creating multimedia eBooks. More details are available on iPadMediaCamp.com.
Google GeoMap Workshop (half or full-day workshop)
In this hands-on workshop using laptops, we will learn how to create a Google form students can fill out which includes a field for city and state information. We will connect form results as a “layer” in a Google Map to produce a GeoMap. The resulting GeoMap will have clickable, customized place marks. Each will reveal results from each student’s Google Form submission.We will also learn how to create individual GeoMaps, collaborative GeoMaps, and GeoMaps using web resources like earthquake data. Session resources are available on wiki.wesfryer.com/Home/handouts/geomap and showwithmedia.com/geo-map/.
