The Office of eLearning, with the help of the Rockstars of Curation, will travel the state to offer Digital Content Curation Workshops throughout the 2017-2018 school year. These workshops are intended to support districts and teachers who are journeying down the digital learning path. Districts are encouraged to send a team of teachers (up to 5) to learn about the process of digital content curation and best practices. The morning will focus on professional learning, and the afternoon will be a work time, with support, so teacher teams can collaborate and leave with curated digital materials. We suggest sending a grade level team or content area team of teachers. Attendees will be asked to vet and curate digital materials to use in their classrooms, but also to share with colleagues across the state via Amazon Inspire. Our goal is to grow this network of teachers and encourage collaboration within districts and across the state. While the work of curating digital content is on-going, working together makes the load lighter.
The Office of eLearning will reimburse districts for attendee substitute teacher costs.
Digital Content Curation Workshop Tour dates and locations are listed below. All workshops will be held from 9-3:30 local time. Registration will open in the fall of 2017.
