9:00am - 10:00am: Bringing Meaning Back to High School Parent High School Teacher Conferences (Trent Grundmeyer)


10:15am - 11:15am ~ Social Media: The Rapport-Building Machine
This session will demonstrate ways in which teachers can use the power of social media to build relationships with their students, colleagues, and school’s community members. Jodie Morgenson is a proponent of using social media networks like Twitter, Instagram, Vine, Pinterest, and Edublogs as a way to speak the language of her students, to inform parents and other school community members about classroom activities and to strengthen her personal learning network. This session will provide concrete examples of these uses in her own classroom and in the classrooms of her fellow (ever-growing, global) PLN members. Educators from all grades, subject areas, and levels can benefit from this topic.
