Using the technology without it using us.
Going the Distance
Cisco/Webex has worked very hard to develop the tools that we need when we want to collaborate, but not be in the same room as each other. This week we’re going to use our Cisco stuff to enable Dr. Lance Ford, educational technology advocate (from Oklahoma!) to tell us about how we can best collaborate using the tools we already have at our disposal. We’re hosting viewing parties for the Cisco/Webex Collaborations Tools session at Frost and Sutherland. Check out this and all of the PD Week session details and sign up stuff here.
Stuff to tell your students!
Your students are hopefully at home getting some rest right now, so let us use this space to tell you about a snoozefest. According to Reta Wright, using sleep empowers people to be their best version of themselves. Why would we argue this point when it means we get more sleep? Join Reta for her PD week session on Sleep Hygiene, called “You Snooze, You Win!” Check out this and all of the PD Week session details and sign up stuff here.
