Taking it Personally with Schoology (Workshop, 75 min)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

First, through physical movement and through drawing, attendees will map their use of the Internet, and of Schoology. Based upon research from David White and Stephen Downes, attendees will learn the benefits of creating personal learning centers, what White calls residency, in a web-connected world. Second, attendees will come to learn that Schoology, an adaptive and evolving cloud-based learning platform, can be more than a learning management system. Schoology can evolve into an individual's personal learning center. Third, we will discuss and illustrate ways Schoology supports personal learning. Examples will include, but not be limited to, Schoology's Blog, Media Albums, Groups, and Portfolios. Next, attendees will discuss how this insight can be transferred to learners in their schools and classrooms. There is tremendous benefit in knowing how learners use the tools at their disposal. Finally, we will discuss differences between digital literacy and digital fluency; knowing when and why to use a digital tool is different than knowing how to use the digital tool. This information, along with comparing and contrasting Schoology maps helps educators create innovative ways to increase engagement and empowerment through the usage of Schoology.
