Make Vocabulary Come Alive

  • Learning in Hand HQ 1406 Callahan Dr Council Bluffs, IA, 51503 United States (map)

Sorry, this workshops has been cancelled.

Learning academic terms and phrases doesn’t have to be boring. In fact, learning new words should be exciting and fun! It’s time to start looking at digital ways to expand students’ vocabulary. Let’s explore iPad apps and websites that are so irresistible, students can’t help but be motivated to learn. We’ll take a good look at representing words visually, creating multimedia, fueling collaborative learning, and playing games.

Yes, the technology can be mesmerizing, but it’s important to use techniques and strategies proven to work. That’s why pairing technology with Robert Marzano’s Six Steps for Vocabulary Instruction is a powerful combination.

Please bring an iPad, charger, and earbuds so you can experience the power and potential of iPads for making vocabulary come to life. At the conclusion of the workshop you will receive a certificate with the workshop's agenda that will list six hours of participation.
