Reminder: Last webinars until 2011!!
Published:December 15, 2010
Just a quick reminder about our last two Webinars of 2010!
Thursday, December 16th, join Barbara Greenstone as she facilitates a webinar on Journaling Across the Curriculum. Journal writing has proven to be a powerful and flexible activity that works well for any content area. Whether students are responding to literature, explaining their reasoning, or reflecting on their work, capturing their thinking in written language not only improves their writing and thinking skills but also gives teachers another opportunity to assess students’ progress.
In this week’s webinar, Journaling Across the Curriculum, we will take a close look at how journal writing can become a regular part of classroom work in any content area and at any grade level. We will discuss metacognition which is defined by most as “thinking about thinking” or “knowing about knowing.” The term refers to the ways we reflect on how we know what we know, how we learned it, and how we can apply it to learning new things. Metacognition is essential to becoming an effective, independent learner, and writing about our learning is a powerful metacognitive strategy.
We’ll also look at the advantages of digital journals, in particular how digital journals allow the use of other media as well as text. We will explore some tools for digital journal writing including NoteShareand Pages and discuss the use of blogs for online journaling. As always, we will invite participants to share their experiences, resources, and ideas.
This webinar will be offered at 3:15pm and 7:15pm. To register, please visit Maine121.org.
