The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up Your Digital Life
Appropriate for all PreK-12 educators
** Maximum Class size 12**
Advances in educational technologies are grand…until you realize that your life is cluttered with devices, and your mind is reeling with where to create, store, and share resources. If your digital life is overwhelming, join us for a fun week of decluttering and organizing.
During the week we will:
• Review storage options on your physical devices and wherever you currently store your work online (Google Drive, DropBox, etc.)
• Review how you currently use your devices and discover even more possibilities
• Review options for sharing information and resources
• Identify, weed, and organize!
Leave with a renewed confidence in how to manage your current teaching and learning resources as well as exciting new educational technologies, benefitting you and your students.
Each person’s learning experiences and activities will be personalized to meet their starting point and ending needs. For example, participants may wish to focus more on weeding and organizing emails and documents/photos/files, or they may wish to spend most of their time creating a website to share course materials.
*In addition, those receiving graduate credit will create a presentation to share with their teaching peers to help spread the joy of tidying up!
