Welcome to It Takes a Village: Innovative Ways to Collaborate


Presented at the eTech Ohio Conference February 14th, 2012 Presented by Holly Harwood and Karen Magrum

This Wikispace has been created to share innovative ways teachers can collaborate in today's technology infused world.

This session will focus on how it takes a village to educate students and how to set up your village: innovative ways for teachers to collaborate. The focus will be on teacher blogs, live binders, PLC meetings, Twitter, Yahoo groups, TPT and how to set up share drives. If you're interested in how these tools can help you become more organized, creative, inspired and truely humbled by your peers... this is the session for you!

It takes a village to educate students today but, how does a teacher set up the right village to help educate her students? The teacher finds innovative ways to collaborate! This session will focus on how a teacher can set up, expand and organize that village to maximize growth- professionally and in her students.
Teacher blogs are an expanding resource where teachers can share, give advice and pick up information like never before. Pictures- room set-ups, classroom management, teacher created materials and valuable tips and ideas to help a teacher are now at a teachers fingertips. I have become a blogger early this year and co-created The Lemonade Stand blog for teachers. I can share what we learned in set up and working together to create an invaluable resource for teachers all over the U.S.

In addition we will briefly discuss live binders, yahoo groups, share drives, and TPT. These resources not only directly link you to sources, but link you to curriculum and lessons in your hand immediately.
