Co-presenting “DIY PD” and “Digital Resources” with @KimBeeman at @UWCSEA_East’s #TeachUp today!

I’m in Singapore for a few days to visit a smattering of schools, reunite with a college friend, and co-present with Kim Beeman (@KimBeeman). Kim is the Head Librarian at Shrewsbury International School. She and I were graciously invited to Singapore by Katie Day (@librarianedge). Katie is the remarkably knowledgable, innovative, and inspiring Head of Libraries at UWCSEA East, and I met her at the Librarians’ Knowledge Sharing Workshop Kim hosted last month at her school in Bangkok. Kim and I are exceedingly excited to be here for the following two events:

Our first presentation is full of resources for educators to take control of their professional development, DIY PD. We hope to demonstrate a variety of models to actively learn and network via Twitter chats, unconferences, webinars, PLNs, digital spaces, and Google Hangouts. These are just a few of the ways to propel and sustain personal growth and join a vast online/offline participatory culture of learners.  

Our second presentation is about Digital Literacies and contains resources for ethically locating, gathering, and using digital media. We’ll also talk about standards, literacies, and citizenship.  

As per the TeachUp website: TeachUp is a mini-conference for anyone involved in teaching looking for peer-delivered professional development. Share and learn tried-and-tested new ideas with others. TeachUp meetings will take place three times a year and are for anyone involved in teaching: teachers, Heads of Departments, Principals, librarians, administrators and support staff.

Slides for the “Our Portfolios, Ourselves” workshop I’m leading at @Teach21c today

Below is a GooglePresentation of some of my talking points for today’s Our Portfolios, Ourselves at Teach21. Here’s the description for the workshop:

Curation is a 21st Century skill, so let’s show how to gather archival evidence of your professional endeavors and classroom projects in a digital portfolio. You’ll learn tips to get started: What to gather? Where to put it? How much will this cost? How to organize it? What settings to use? How to link or embed artifacts? How to connect with others?
