2020 TFLTA Workshop: Making the Most of FREE Online Resources
Presenter: Angelica DaSilva and Ilza Harrell; With the high demand to integrate technology into the classroom, teachers are challenged to rethink their planning strategies. However, most teachers in secondary institutions also lack financial support. So, how can we engage students while incorporating technology and authentic resources on a budget? This workshop aims to facilitate proficiency by exclusively using free online resources. Especially in schools where computer access is limited, cell phones can often close the technology gap. Participants will learn how to create and use QR codes to integrate authentic resources; they will create an interactive assessment using Wizer.me; and, they will explore several other free resources that can be easily incorporated into their daily lesson plans. Attendees will leave with several resources, ideas, and editable material that will fulfill several requirements listed on the TEAM-TN rubric.
