Instructional Options with Interactive Google Maps

Today Dr. Terrence Cavanaugh presented a very informative Webinar from the SITE Distance Education SIG on “Using Nudging to Keep Online Students On Track.”

I learned about many inviting and collaborative activities for my online graduate students. My favorite activity was using Google Maps to create personalized maps reflecting our class.

Here is our map with various school locations where we’ve taught. Below the map are some of our collective curricular ideas for using the map in instruction.

Considering the concept of eBooks for younger learners

This week in our PBSTeacherLine course, Teaching Lifelong Reading Habits, we are reading about, thinking about, and digitally posting about electronic books. We’re firing up our Kindles- it promises to be a page-turner!

After exploring the pros and cons of electronic books you will learn where and how to find free eBooks, identify the skills your students need to be able to use them, and explore a wealth of resources that help you integrate them into the classroom. Here are a couple of link edits to note:
