Calling all life long learners! Join us in our IDEA playground as we work through what's on YOUR minds. Idea's may be free but what you do with them can be priceless! Sessions will be made available starting at 9am on Saturday, March 13th. You'll have access to 6 recorded presentations including a note taking doc for each to collect your thoughts. Collaborate with other learners in an online forum. Earn up to 6 PDHs when you watch all six presentations before March 27, 2021. Fun & engaging professional learning you won't want to miss!

Fun with Bitmoji: Join Director of Professional Learning, Lindsay Zilly in this session on personalizing and creating engaging online learning experiences for students using Bitmoji. Walk away with some templates and creations of your own!

Getting started with Kami: Come learn alongside Executive DIrector Amber Heffner as she shares the tools within Kami to create interactive and engaging activities with their students. Learners will receive all the Kami resources they need to be successful in using Kami today. This session is hands on and learners should have access to the Kami tool.

TPACK + SAMR = BFFs: You don't have to choose between Team TPACK and Team SAMR when you understand how they work together. Join IDEA's Director of Marketing & Outreach Jenna Hnilo as she explains these two education frameworks and shares the connection between them.

Virtual STEAM: Teaching hands-on is tricky when you are virtual. Join STEAM teacher Andrea Beaty as she shows you how it actually works though! Her engaging approach leverages student leadership and curiosity to provide an uncommon experience.

Screencasting How's and Do's: In this interactive session with instructional coach Don Sturm, you'll learn some tips for making videos your students will actually watch. Walk away with some experience in screencasting tools and a lot more confidence in your video creation abilities.

Giving Students Choice: Choice is great! Limitless choice, not so much. In this session work with instructional coach Julie Ryan to provide students with choice, with parameters. Help students feel empowered and take ownership over their learning while maintaining control. Leave with your very own hyperdoc and choice board.

Illinois educators can earn up to six (6) PDHs for this event. Session recordings will be available March 13-27, 2021.
