Participants will learn how to create a positive, inclusive, growth mindset classroom environment through the use of social media. Participants will be given the resources to engage and nurture student social-emotional learning, while globally networking through social media (Twitter). Teachers will be able to take the lessons within the session and immediately apply it to their classroom learning environments.
This session will include a Google Slides presentation of resources for attendees to immediately implement within their classrooms. Participants will be shown first-hand specific examples of how my classroom has networked to virtually engage using platforms such as Zoom, Skype, and FlipGrid with various professional athletes, authors, scientists, and Olympians, as well as local and global classrooms.
Additionally, participants will be shown examples of how creating positive learning experiences within my classroom developed an inclusive classroom culture. Evidence of success will be shown through video clips of my classroom being featured on NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt, Good Morning America, CBS, and various other large media platforms for our positive and inclusive classroom.
