A Message From Your Seminar Leader

Dear Colleague:

Are you feeling frustrated with the constantly changing situation in education? It seems like the landscape of K-6 teaching demands more flexibility from us and our students than ever before. With the fast-moving and saturated market of ed tech tools, it can be overwhelming to decide which tools are the most effective and which method of lesson planning works best when you are teaching either from your classroom, online, or a combination of both. One way we can make sense of all the choices is to learn from the principles of HyFlex course design. In this seminar, I will share practical strategies based on HyFlex teaching principals of learner choice, equivalency, reusability, and accessibility to make planning and implementation of technology practices in grades K-6 feel doable and successful.

As an experienced elementary teacher, instructional technology specialist, and national presenter on technology innovation, I have explored and classroom-tested some of the best free and low cost tools available for grades K-6 and am excited to share them with you! I have carefully designed this seminar to support each of us in making more informed choices for lesson planning, tools, and technology integration. Together, we will explore the principles of HyFlex instruction and my top tips for engaging students using favorite tech tools along with some new and innovative ones. You will leave this seminar ready to move forward with the support and information you need to implement these outstanding tools and ideas as soon as you return to your classroom whether it is in person or online, or continues to change.

My goal for this seminar is to give you step-by-step help with organizing, planning, implementing, and managing your digital infused classroom through the principles of HyFlex instruction. I cannot wait to share my tried and true tools and practical strategies for student engagement and empowering students to take their learning to the highest level. Please join me for a fast-paced day filled with strategies, tools, and ideas you can truly take and use in your instruction. Come ready to explore, play, laugh, and learn!
