Creating a Participatory Culture in the Primary Classroom

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Maria Knee and Amanda Marrinan create a participatory culture in their early years classrooms. They use simple but powerful social media tools that transform learning and offer authentic learning experiences. These learning experiences foster collaboration and communication skills and engage children in new media literacy skills while they learn traditional literacy skills. Amanda and Maria will discuss how they create a global classroom bulletin board where children’s learning is shared and enhanced by others around the world.

Attendees will become informed about
Blogs, wikis and twitter as learning tools in the early years classroom
Addressing specific Common Core standards
Young learners and the participatory culture
