SCETV Resources for the Classroom
Did you know that SCETV offers a wealth of resources for educators: Knowitall.org, SC’s PBSLearningMedia.org, PBS Kids, and our new site, LearningWhy.org? SCETV also offers a large selection of recertification opportunities. Come learn about the variety of resources that SCETV provides for all SC Educators.

Tools, Tools and More Tools (Webtools, That Is)
I'll share my top 10 favorite webtools. Maybe more if we have time! Some old, some new and some with a twist on how to integrate them into your lessons. (Different webtools highlighted depending on grade level and/or subject.)

Beyond Kahoot! - Assessment Tools on the Web
There are many types of assessment tools available on the web. Most teachers have “played” or used Kahoot! but there are lots of other tools out there: Quizizz, Plickers, Quizlet Live, Google Forms, and more. Come explore these resources with us.

Creating Instructional Videos
There are thousands of pre-made instructional videos out there but nothing is more effective than videos created by the teacher. Don’t think you have time for that? Discover some easy ways to create instructional videos with no editing involved using your phone, iPad, Google apps and webtools.

Make Life Easier with Google Extensions
Google extensions can make living in the "Google World" easier for teachers. I'll share some of my favorites and give you access to a list of others to explore.

iPads in the Classroom
Whether each student has their own iPad or there is just one available in the classroom, there are lots of free apps the teacher and the students can use to create multimedia projects. Teachers will have hands-on experience with many free iPad apps such as Tellagami, Sock Puppets, Shadow Puppets EDU, Photo Speak and many more.

Blended Learning
As classrooms move to a 1:1 environment, it changes the way instruction is delivered. Let ETV show you free tools available for teachers to use whether they are 1:1 already or are moving in that direction. We will explore tools for assessment, flipping the classroom, and communicating with students and parents. (This session incorporates a little of each of the other sessions listed.)

The Power of QR Codes
You have seen QR Codes everywhere; why not use them in your classroom? We will share how to create them, scan them and the many uses of QR Codes in schools.

Google Forms
Learn the basics of Google Forms and explore ways to use them in your classroom.

Creating Interactive Lessons with Google Forms
Did you know that Google Forms can do more that just collect data? Using the section feature in forms, teachers can create lessons that allow students to explore, create and document mastery of skills.

Change Your Reality: What is Augmented and Virtual Reality?
Let us introduce you to Augmented and Virtual Reality resources designed for education that are free and easy to use. After a brief explanation, participants will be able to visit stations so they can experience some of the AR/VR resources available for use in their classrooms.
