Slides from “Our Portfolios, Ourselves” workshop at @Teach21c today. #edchat

I’m leading a Teach21 professional development workshop today, Our Portfolios, Ourselves: Crafting a Digital Portfolio of Your Work as an Educator. Here’s the description for the morning plan:
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?

Slides for my #LKSW2015 presentations on New Media Literacies and DIY PD at @ShrewsburyBKK today.

Many thanks to @KimBeeman for including me in the lineup of speakers at the Librarians Knowledge Sharing Workshop 2015 event she organized for February 6-7, 2015 at Shrewsbury International School in Bangkok, Thailand where she is Head of Library. Here’s a link to the awesome schedule for LKSW 2015 Kim put together.

Kim and I worked together at Convent of the Sacred Heart in New York City from 2004-2006. I’m now back in the Land of Smiles on a personal leave to collaborate with @BangkokGlutton. Now that I’m 10,000 miles closer to Kim, she and I met and talked about the planning of LKSW. She had a great collection of speakers and topics lined up and she grouped them really well into 4 two-hour blocks of sessions. As a huge believer in Edcamps and the Edcamp model, I suggested ending the conference with an unconference for Session 5. I can’t wait to see how it plays out! I was honored that Kim asked me to present as well, and I readily offered a few suggestions before we narrowed it down to the two below.

Join me at 2pmEST at #CO14 for “Crafting your Digital Character”

CO14

The 5th annual Connecting Online for Instruction and Learning Conference 2014 takes place this weekend. Dr. Nellie Deutsch (@nelliemuller) is passionate about teaching and learning in blended environments, and she has graciously extended an invitation to me to present again this year. Read more about her professional experiences and accomplishments here: http://www.wiziq.com/nelliedeutsch

My session is called Crafting Your Digital Character. In this presentation, I’m hoping to give examples of classroom projects that reinforce new media literacies, encourage awareness about the “public, permanent, and traceable” nature of an online presence, and offer opportunities to collaborate academically, respectfully, and responsibly online.

Click here to join me at 2:00pm EST.
