Synchronous Class in Collaborate!

12 March 2013

This week we met in Bb Collaborate with instructor Cary Harrod and a guest, an elementary teacher from Forest Hills School District.

We toured how to use the sight.  We talked about 21st shift in teaching and then we heard from an elementary teacher–how it has changed the way he teaches.  He has done it in baby steps–he is doing great things using technology in his classroom.

I loved using Collaborate for class.

This last week:  I met virtually with our Bb contact and got the information for our Collaborate for WSD.  I learned how to get logged in set up our class–to be open all year. Then I took a tour of the moderators page–will be sharing with Kris Back this week–this will help me to solidify what I have learned.

I have one teacher who already would like to give this a whirl with her Latin Club.  So I want to get a couple of teachers to try this and get feedback from them.

1 Hour class time   1 Hour Setting up and playing in Collaborate.
