How many times have you heard, ‘Just Google it!’ Google holds a large share of the search engine market. The word “Google” and the word “research” are often interchangeable in a students’ world.

 

In this webinar we will explore why Google is the dominant search engine, how Google works, where a search fits within the inquiry process & the essential skills that scaffold a search. I will share search secrets that allow students to be more specific with their search and the results this produces. If privacy issues are of concern, I will also address the need for having reliable alternative sites for your students.

 

This webinar will help you to:

  • initiate inquiry through effective search questions,
  • identify search tips that are relevant and helpful,
  • access resources to support ‘search’ at different age levels.

Virtual Reality (VR) is like no resource we have ever used before. It is entirely immersive and incredibly engaging. For schools, this technology offers some amazing possibilities for teaching and learning.

  • Describe several examples of the practical application of VR in a class setting;
  • Present a sample lesson plan that is linked to the Australian National Curriculum, and includes a small formative assessment;
  • Frame VR in the context of learning research and theory;
  • Touch on some important considerations regarding how to meaningfully link this new resource with practice and pedagogy.

Chelsea’s hope is that you will come away from this presentation inspired to try new technological mediums. She also hopes that the knowledge you gain through this presentation will empower you to argue the case for VR in your own school.

 

VR is an incredibly powerful and versatile resource, and it is definitely time to get excited!

 

Outcomes for attendee:

  • Understand what VR is and how it relates to school education;
  • Describe several examples of how VR can be used in practice, in a classroom setting;
  • Argue the case for VR being brought into a school, by linking the potential benefits of the resource with current learning theory, research, and pedagogy.

In the 21st century, we have witnessed tremendous change in how we understand knowledge and information, how we communicate, and how we see the world and ourselves. The way we understand learning and pedagogy must be transformed to reflect this new reality. One approach through which we can achieve this transformation is by applying the principles of connected learning to our practice.

 

The term connected learning is used frequently, and different interpretations of what connected learning is abound. In this webinar, I will present the empirically researched Connected Learning Framework, a pedagogical approach to understanding connected learning which is both a learning strategy and a blueprint for learning design.

 

Implementing a connected learning approach creates opportunities for collaboration, creativity, imagination & knowledge construction. This presentation will allow participants to become familiar with the Connected Learning Framework. It will also provide real life examples of connected learning, and suggestions for how this learning approach may be embedded in formal and informal learning contexts.

 

Outcomes for attendee:

  • Understand what connected learning is
  • Explain the elements, core properties and design principles of connected learning
  • Identify connected learning opportunities in formal and informal contexts
  • Argue the case for implementing connected learning for greater student engagement and participatory 21st century learning
  • Access further reading and resources

Kay Oddone is an educator, librarian and constant inquirer who is passionate about exploring how we might leverage the connectivity of the social technologies to enhance how we learn. With over twenty years of experience working in education and information environments, Kay is committed to finding innovative and creative ways to enhance how we access and experience learning opportunities. She is currently completing the final year of her PhD candidature through QUT, exploring how teachers experience professional learning through online personal learning networks.

Great Reads for Upper Primary and Lower Secondary Students: Young Adult Age Appropriate Texts for 11-14 Age Group
With Pauline McLeod, Children’s and YA Literature Specialist, Riverbend Books

 

[As we are in Daylight Saving Time in Australia, please check the time of the webinar for your time zone, e.g. NSW, ACT, VIC, TAS = 8.00 pm, QLD = 7.00 pm, SA = 7.30 pm, NT = 6.30 pm, WA = 5.00 pm]

 

[NOTE: A percentage of your registration fee will go towards The Australian Literacy & Numeracy Foundation.]

 

This webinar is most relevant for upper primary and lower secondary teachers, teacher librarians and library staff and for those who have an interest in children’s and young adult literature. Recommending books categorised as Young Adult literature can be difficult for both teachers and parents and the “recommended” reading ages in publisher’s blurbs are highly unreliable. Books that are age appropriate for a year 11 student may not be appropriate for a year 7 student but are all categorised as “Young Adult”. As a supplier of texts to many high schools the years 7-9 is the age group that Pauline receives the most queries about for advice about suitability, language, content and themes. During the webinar Pauline will introduce participants to some new titles that deal with complex issues and themes but are targeted at the 11-14 years age group.

 

Participation in this webinar will assist teachers to:

  • Select the most recent texts aimed at the 11-14 years age group for classroom teaching purposes.
  • Be aware of new authors writing for this age group.
  • Identify literature that is engaging to readers for pleasure and also for bookclubs
  • Reacquaint themselves with some classic texts for this age group and find comparable texts to match with or replace old favourites.

Pauline McLeod is the Children’s and YA Literature Specialist at Riverbend Books, Bulimba. A Teacher-Librarian and former English and History teacher, for over a decade Pauline was a coordinator of UQ Library’s award winning school outreach program UQL Cyberschool. She has an MA in Children’s Literature and Graduate Diplomas in Secondary Education and Teacher-Librarianship. She has a special interest in YA fiction and is passionate about promoting and encouraging Australian stories. In 2015 Pauline was awarded the ABA Elizabeth Riley Fellowship for Children’s Bookselling. Pauline is a current judge for 2019/2020 of the older reader’s category of the CBCA awards.

Providing opportunities for students to respond to books by sharing insights with their peers can engage, motivate and deepen understanding. This presentation focuses on stories that include geographical concepts including local and global awareness, topographical features and examples of cartography. Through the examination of settings, locations, plots and maps we will consider how students can make geographical connections in their fiction reading through story mapping activities. Possibilities for applying cartographical techniques, creating visual representations and harnessing technology as a tool for map making and journey mapping will be considered. Participants will be introduced to a range of texts as a springboard for ideas suitable for primary and secondary classrooms.

 

This webinar will help you to:

  • understand the value of story mapping as a reading response strategy,
  • identify story mapping opportunities in literature,
  • explore different ways to create story maps and representations of real and imaginary places, and
  • harness technology to support story mapping.

Jennie’s passion for children’s literature has spanned a lifetime – as a reader, teacher, teacher librarian and adjunct lecturer in Charles Sturt University’s Master of Education (Teacher Librarianship) program. Her current delivery of Children’s Literature Across the Curriculum for Charles Sturt University provided the inspiration for this session. Literature is a gateway to the world around us and Jennie loves making connections between the settings in stories of both her known, and the yet to be explored, geographical locations. Jennie is the coordinator of the OZTL_NET discussion list and associated social media platforms, with similar responsibilities for the CBCA Tasmania.
