Mesa State College ISED580 2 graduate credits open enrollment, ongoing

This course is designed for secondary teachers in all districts, even those that ban cell phones.  The purpose of this course is to empower educators who are ready to move from fighting student cell phones to using cell phone technologies to enhance teaching and learning.  This course will introduce teachers to many free, basic cell phone tools that support and enhance research-based instructional strategies.  A five-step plan for integrating cells beginning personally, moving to homework, and eventually into the classroom will be shared.  Policy, permissions, privacy, cell phone etiquette, parents, and safety will also be covered.  Teachers will develop actual lesson plans or homework assignments, apply them in their setting, and evaluate the resulting teaching and learning.


Conferences, Workshops, and Webinars!

The 5-Step Plan to Move from Banning to Embracing Cells in Education

94% of Americans under age 45 have a personal learning device that could greatly enrich the way teachers teach and students learn. Unfortunately, many schools and districts ban student-owned learning learning devices such as cell phones. In this session we'll reveal a sensible and progressive 5-step plan that will enable all stakeholders (parents, teachers, administrators, and students) to embrace these powerful learning tools and discover how doing so can enrich student learning and strengthen the home-school connection.

See how technology can empower educators to provide real audiences for student work and the difference it makes when we empower students to take their reading into writing! An interactive workshop resulting in lessons and inspiration.

Baby, the Poodle Cow Dog

Storytime and Writer’s Workshop

Motivate your students to write with an interactive storytime featuring Willyn Webb and Baby, the Poodle Cow Dog. Students will be enthralled with the powerpoint photos and illustrations from the book on the big screen while Willyn in full cowgirl garb reads the story that teaches a valuable lesson, motivating children to dream, strive to achieve, and courageously face adversity. Through the story students witness the real-life accomplishment of another child and her pet and are literally invited to create their own story. Meeting Baby and getting his paw print autograph is a fun culmination to the message that one can succeed, no matter whether they look the part, feel the part, or are the “right” gender or breed. All this excitement is shown to get kids writing about the people, pets, and events in their own lives.
