Paper Be Gone, The Digital Classroom

Paperless is increasingly becoming the norm in the everyday lives of adults, yet our classrooms often do not reflect or prepare students for that reality. During this session, strategies will be discussed to help teachers and students transition to a more paperless environment. While many teacher best practices can be enhanced by going digital, consideration will be given to the fact that going paperless is not an educational outcome, and that there still a time and place for paper and pencil. 

Key skills/concepts covered will include: 
  • What's the why? Why paperless?
  • Getting the most of your learning management system and the Google Suite for digital organization and workflow
  • File sorting and naming conventions
  • How to ditch the worksheet and facilitate authentic learning experiences with high cognitive demand
  • Facilitating feedback loops digitally
