Thursday, November 29, 5:00-7:00 PM in the Student Union Multipurpose Room
The Pre-Service Teacher Technology Showcase is intended to provide pre-service teachers (and recent credential students in their first or second year) with an opportunity to present how they have used or plan to use technology in the classroom to support students and student learning. The Showcase will be run like a poster session at a conference and this will allow students to share with attendees their unit plans, lessons, or activities that incorporate new media technologies.
What is the goal of the Showcase?
The goal of the Showcase is to highlight how our novice teachers are integrating technology in their work with students. The focus is not just on the technological tools the teachers are employing but also on the content objectives as well: how are they creating a better learning environment for students through the integration of this technology? Additionally, the SoE is always excited to bring educators and community members together to support novice teachers and discuss their work.
Who should present at the Showcase?
All credential students in the SoE are welcome to present at the Showcase as long as they provide a brief description of their presentation that is approved by Dr. Jessica Parker. Download the sign up form.
Who should attend the Showcase?
We welcome our local educational community to come to the Showcase--teachers, administrators and other educators, as well as Sonoma State students (e.g. undergrads, graduate, and credential), faculty and staff.
What are some of the projects that will be showcased at the event?
Some examples of student presentations might include a middle school science teacher using Google Earth to map numerous elements on the periodic table; a high school history teacher employing a Flickr gallery to analyze Russian propaganda during the Cold War; and a middle school English teacher relying on blogs to stimulate student discussion about students' outside reading books.
