Being Both a Professional Educator and a Community Leader
As educators, we sometimes see how we can exhibit leadership roles on campus, but only rarely do we step out to contribute our talents as part of the community. This doesn't mean that one has to run for office; teachers can can make a difference for those near and far in a variety of ways, and those efforts can be personally and professionally rewarding. We'll look at several approaches to getting involved in your community, and at the same time how doing so can help students see their possibilities for making a difference.

#CreateWithChrombooks

Chromebooks have been fantastic devices for schools and kids. They are easy to use and CHEAP. Many teachers, though, fall into the routine of just using these tools as a way for students use Google Docs and to browse the web. This is in part because Chromebooks lack those ready made creative tools that are so plentiful on tablets. But with some creative thinking and connecting with other educators, participants will see innovative ways to use Chromebooks like they never imagined. Some examples will include graphic design, video creation, comic books, newspapers, web design, coding and more.
