A list of programs coming up ...

13874 • BRING-YOUR-OWN-TECHNOLOGY: DIGITAL LEARNING – CULLOWHEE
Tuesday, March 10, 2015 to Friday, March 13, 2015
Located at 276 NCCAT Drive, Cullowhee, NC 28723
In the time between a total implementation of 1:1 technology and the present, many teachers are faced with a charge to integrate technology into the curriculum and the reality that the technology supplied by their schools is not the same sort of technology that their students are using on a daily basis. One answer to this dilemma is that the technology that the students want to bring with them to school can be used as a way to engage them more fully with the materials and the processes. Come and join us to learn more about how a teacher, a school, or a district can more effectively leverage BYOT (sometimes also called BYOD—Bring-Your-Own-Device) in order to meet goals on a budget and to meet your students on common ground.

Hone your skills with the Google Chrome Browser, with Google Apps, with Android Apps, and with Chrome OS so that you can engage your students using freely available tools on almost any platform.

13883 • FLIPPING INSTRUCTION WITHOUT FLIPPING OUT: A DIGITAL LEARNING SPECIAL TOPIC – OCRACOKE
Monday, March 30, 2015 to Thursday, April 2, 2015
Located at 2 Irvin Garrish Highway, PO Box 1540, Ocracoke, NC 27960
“Flipping” instruction is a method of shifting lecture and explanation to a controlled video or mixed-media format so that time in class can be spent most productively. When done properly, flipping can be of great benefit to teachers and students by allowing for more finely attuned differentiation and more class time for one-on-one instruction and meaningful learning experiences. With help from working teachers and educational technologists, this course will give you the tools and confidence you need to approach flipping your own classroom in ways that are meaningful and engaging for your students and that give you new tools for assessment and interaction.

NCCAT is also creating useful content for you in an easily accessible format through NCCAT Online. There are a number of possibilities for accessing online programming, but we are going to work to make NCCAT Online an accessible option for your immediate needs. NCCAT Online is freely available to all public school (including charter schools) instructional personnel at no additional cost to you or your district.
