If you are interested in booking me (Wesley Fryer) for a presentation or workshop (either face-to-face or over video) please visit my Speaking page on www.speedofcreativity.org/speaking.

 

Update 25 August 2010:

In 2010 I am transitioning to the website wiki.wesfryer.com for my handout and presentation/workshop links. I'm not taking content here on PBworks offline, but I have added this "update header" to all my pages as well as adding direct links to more updated versions of these pages as I mirror them / create them on wiki.wesfryer.com. There are 146 pages here on teachdigital.pbworks.com. - You can browse these in page view in addition to using the four category links provided on the homepage. Note this wiki was previously mapped to "handouts.wesfryer.com" but that domain mapping is no longer available.

 

Stay updated on my latest posts by following me on Twitter, my blog ("Moving at the Speed of Creativity") and Facebook.

A Summer Of Professional Learning Choices for Educators! Where Should I Start?

 

In the 20th century, professional educators often had to rely on formal, face-to-face professional development opportunities to learn new knowledge and skills to expand professional comptence. In the flat world of the 21st century, connected educators (those with access to high speed Internet connections) have an amazing array of digital learning choices. Given the vast array of web 2.0 tools and options that are availlable, where should teachers and librarians start when planning summer digital learning activites? In this session we will explore some of the best places to start.  A 1 page PDF flyer of these options is also available.
