Connected WritingWill Richardson The ability to easily publish to the Internet has opened up all sorts of new possibilities for teachers to help students enhance their writing skills and become more effective communicators. In the age of the Read/Write Web, every reader can truly be a writer as well. Weblogs and wikis provide wide and diverse audiences from around the world for feedback and response. But they also require a more “connective writing” approach, one that can synthesize many disparate ideas from different sources, all connected together through hypertext. This is a think out of the box workshop intended to help you start exploring new ways to make your own writing and your classroom writing more meaningful and more effective.All Grade LevelsAll Content Areas

Students visit each site to take photos and videos, and visit with personnel to learn about the tourism site. Videos are produced and submitted to the executive director who accepts the video or sends it back to the students for additional changes or improvement. Once the video is accepted it is uploaded onto the Adams County website on the pages advertising the selected sites.

Keynote - Teaching and Learning in an Age of AbundanceWill RichardsonTwo trillion webpages. Two billion people connected online. Over 600,000 apps. 1.2 billion smartphones. In just over a decade, we’ve gone from a world where access to information, knowledge, and teachers was relatively scarce to a world where all of those are absolutely abundant. That fact dramatically changes they way we think about education and what the kids in our schools will need to survive and flourish in a fast changing, networked and connected world. We’ll explore the shifts from scarcity to abundance as they apply to learning, thinking deeply about ourselves as learners along the way. How do our expectations of literacy change when the unedited sum of human knowledge is at our fingertips? How do we connect with others to create real work that adds to that knowledge base and changes the world for the better? How do we deal with the transparency required to make the best of public learning spaces online? And more. Educating for abundance means that instead of becoming college or career ready, our students need to be learning ready, able to fully take advantage of all they now have access to and develop their own paths to an education and work. This intensive one or two day experience will fundamentally change the way you think about education and schooling, and will start you down a new path of deep, connected, modern learning for yourself and your students.All Grade LevelsAll Content Areas
