Classroom 2.0 LIVE webinar Intentional Learning Centers: Making the Most of Station Rotation” with special guest presenter, Brittany Miller.

November 18, 2017

00:06 - Peg Volak
I keep hoping they'd make a position in our Elem. buildings! Someday I hope!

00:08 - Peggy George
learning stations have been around a long time but not always used effectively! I remember when teachers used them as a place for kids to go when they finished their "work"

00:11 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Paula here from New Orleans. I teach 4th graders ELA and social studies.

00:31 - Susie @shighley
When I first read that, I thought it was "international" learning centers

00:36 - Peggy George
Hi Laura!!!! So happy you could join us today!! Thanks for sharing our show on Facebook with all of your followers!!

00:38 - Russel
Thanks...I'll take a virtual gold star...:)

00:50 - Peggy George
Hi Jo Ann! Welcome!

01:02 - Peggy George
You've got it Russel!! :-)

01:28 - Russel
Nice to get one so early in the day.

01:31 - Peggy George
We are thrilled to have Brittany here to share with us today! Love this topic!!

01:35 - Laura Candler 1
Hi Peggy! Sorry I'm late. I had trouble figuring out how to watch on my Mac because it asked for Adobe Flash. I had to switch to my PC because I didn't have time to troubleshoot the issue.

01:55 - Peggy George
interesting Susie!!! could also be international!!

01:57 - Brittany Miller
No worries! Thank you for joining us!

02:39 - Peggy George
Here's the link for our Livebinder with tons of great resources for you:

02:47 - Peggy George
hearing you great Brittany!

02:47 - Anthippi Harou

02:48 - Lorie Moffat
@Laura: The Collaborate app runs in memory, and now incorporates Flash.

02:54 - Patti Ruffing
I think of Lodge McCammon for Friday Institute

03:02 - Peggy George (NCSU Friday Institute)

03:14 - Lorie Moffat
On a MacBook, I've had to use Firefox to run Collaborate.

03:27 - Peg Volak
@Laura ...on my Mac, if I select the short URL I get an Adobe message too. I click on full link now.

03:27 - Peggy George
wow Patti! I didn't make that connection! Great to know!!

03:41 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Wasn't Dr. Lodge part of the Friday Institute? I learned how to have my students make paper slide videos from him.

03:50 - Peggy George
Hi Kati Searcy! So happy you could join us!

03:56 - Kati Searcy 1
Glad to be here!

04:10 - Peggy George (North Carolina Digital Leaders Coaching Network)

04:13 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Hi Kati. :)

04:22 - Kati Searcy 1
Hi, Paula, my hero!

04:23 - Peggy George (Follow Brittany Miller on Twitter)

04:32 - Peggy George
Great intro Maureen! Thanks!!!

04:42 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Aww, Kati, the feeling is mutual.

04:55 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Hi Laura and welcome.

05:08 - Peggy George
Hi Laura Antichi! Welcome! Two Laura's in the room today :-)

05:33 - Peggy George (NC Digital Learning Progress rubric for Schools)

05:57 - Peggy George
there's the connection with Lodge McCammon!! Flipped Learning :-)

06:01 - Susie @shighley
I don't think I've heard the term "enriched virtual" before

06:08 - Laura Antichi
Hi Peggy!

06:14 - Peggy George (Program Components for Leadership in Blended Learning)

06:55 - Laura Candler 1
Thanks for explaining the different models because I wasn't clear about these terms.

07:08 - Peggy George
this is a great overview of the various blended learning models!

07:40 - @bcdtech Maureen
I hadn't realized that there were that many different models!

08:22 - Peggy George
I love that Brittany uses these models for PD so teachers get to see how they would work in their classrooms

09:17 - Peggy George
so helpful to hear how to respond to these myths today! I'm sure they will sound familiar to us!

09:31 - Peggy George
love Mythbusters! Yes Discovery!

10:23 - Peggy George

11:15 - Peggy George
this is true for so many things with technology! Use it for what you're already doing to enhance it! Doesn't have to be considered an "add-on"

11:54 - Peggy George (Edutopia: 6 Tips for Supercharging your Learning Stations)

11:58 - @bcdtech Maureen
I like using station rotations to make a more UDL classroom. Stations can make it easier to be sure that no students are disadvantaged by one method

12:45 - Peggy George
great Maureen!!! Such a perfect way to differentiate learning for all!

12:55 - Peggy George (Edutopia: Learning Centers in the Secondary Classroom)

13:18 - Peggy George
not just for elementary!! :-) great for all levels in K-12 and the university too!

13:24 - Laura Candler 1
Thanks Peg Volak for that tip!

14:04 - Suzanne Sallee
Video play from Catlin Tucker on Blended Learning:

14:25 - @bcdtech Maureen
We did this as teachers in our "coaching" sessions.

14:38 - Peggy George
fantastic Suzanne! I love Catlin Tucker!!! She is such a fantastic teacher!

15:01 - Susie @shighley
It's a good way to organize things if you do not have enough materials for each student to do an activity at the same time. For example, when I taught science, there might be expensive equipment at one station

15:10 - Peggy George
Hi Sawa! Welcome! Thanks for joining us!

15:30 - Sawa
Hello Peggy! 😀😁

16:05 - Laura Candler 1
Love Padlet!

16:05 - Peggy George
great point about assessment in each station!

16:15 - Peggy George (Wizer)

16:22 - Peggy George
Wizer is a new tool for me!

16:24 - @bcdtech Maureen
I would add flipgrid to my list :-)

16:37 - Anthippi Harou
It is an awesome tool!!!

16:50 - Peggy George
I agree Maureen! Flipgrid is a great tool!

17:04 - Anthippi Harou
I like the audio feature it contains!

17:08 - Kati Searcy 1
My students (upper elem) love responding in Flipgrid.

17:08 - Peggy George
that's a real bonus with language support!

17:16 - Suzanne Sallee
Padlet has added so many new features!

17:41 - Peggy George
Anthippi! Do you use

17:46 - terrischulz
flipgrid? what's that?

17:55 - Peggy George (Padlet)

18:09 - Peggy George (Formative)

18:25 - Peggy George

18:30 - Peg Volak keeps popping up on my calendar to check out...I guess I heard of it one time and wrote it down to investigate! Have to check it out!

18:37 - Peggy George
I'll add Flipgrid to our Livebinder after the show :-)

18:44 - Peg Volak

19:04 - @bcdtech Maureen
Padlet gets better and better

19:05 - Peggy George
fun Peg!!! What a great way to remember what you wanted to check out!

19:07 - Sheri Edwards
I like Socrative

19:33 - Peggy George
I agree Maureen! Padlet is really becoming such a valuable, diverse tool for so many kinds of sharing and collaborating!

20:00 - Jessie McKinley
Love goformative for the realtime feedback

20:23 - Peggy George
Jessie did a webinar for us awhile back with several colleagues from his district that was all about formative assessment tools :-)

21:20 - @bcdtech Maureen
I just bought some pegboard to use in my makerspace...thinking marble runs, etc. But first I need to have the kids design pvc stands to hold them...

22:17 - Kati Searcy 1
Poll Everywhere has added a ton of new tools to mini-assess students.

22:46 - Peggy George
written conversations :-) need that link :-)

23:08 - @bcdtech Maureen
sounds like thinglink... only analog

23:20 - Peggy George
Maureen I love how you make student voice/choice integral in your teaching!

23:27 - Anthippi Harou
@Peggy One of the worksheets I have created in preview mode

23:40 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Have students compose a tweet (now 280 characters) to sum up what they learned at the station.

23:51 - Peggy George
going great Brittany :-)

24:09 - Peggy George
Please post any questions you have for Brittany and Lorie will ask her during the Q/A

24:12 - Susie @shighley
I like the way you have given us so many examples for activities

24:15 - Sheri Edwards
Thank you Anthi !

24:18 - Peggy George
amazing multitasking Brittany!!!

24:29 - Kati Searcy 1
Visible Thinking Routines are great.

24:31 - Peggy George
thank you so much Anthippi! I'll add that to our Livebinder!

24:41 - Brittany Miller
Written Conversations:

24:42 - Peggy George
oh great link Kati!!! Thank you!

24:48 - terrischulz
I like...I wonder- awesome simple way to gather student feedback and get them reflecting on the learning! thx-

24:49 - Anthippi Harou
I have no problem, Peggy!

25:05 - Peggy George
wonderful Anthippi!

25:15 - Jessie McKinley
Awesome slide!

25:16 - Peg Volak
Love the add-on Anyone Can share to everyone by Alice Keeler! (Maybe Matt Miller too??)

27:06 - Peggy George
This was the webinar that Jessie & Madison colleagues did back in 2015 re digital assessment tools & strategies

27:16 - Peg Volak
Teaches them to READ and follow directions!

28:03 - Peggy George
they talked about Plickers, Socrative, AnswerGarden, Kahoot, and Google Forms :-)

28:09 - @bcdtech Maureen
Do you ever use a Hyperdoc to start off ... then students choose stations to engage with? Rather than rotate, rotate, etc. Probably not with littles, but upper elem and up...

28:11 - Peggy George
I love this activity!!

28:25 - Sheri Edwards
Yes And link is this:

28:41 - Jessie McKinley
Improv game!

28:44 - Susie @shighley
Using "Yes, and.." stressed several times at the recent AASL

28:44 - Peggy George
video instructions for Yes, and...

29:06 - Peggy George
so much better than saying "yes, but..."

29:10 - @plnaugle (Paula)
@Peg V - When my students do a BreakoutEDU game, they get stumped often because they do NOT read and follow the directions. But they soon learn how important that is if they want to open the locks.

29:13 - @bcdtech Maureen
Love this game

29:15 - Jessie McKinley
Thx Peggy!

29:42 - Peggy George
excellent point Paula!! I know a lot of adults who have the same problem in life!! :-)

30:03 - Anthippi Harou
That's true!

30:06 - Kati Searcy 1
genius idea - move the station!

30:10 - Jessie McKinley
Cool tip!

30:12 - Peggy George (Collaborative reflection link on her earlier slide)

30:18 - Peggy George
love that tip!!!

30:29 - Peg Volak
So true @Paula! However, I put up AM directions and they never read it!

30:39 - Peggy George (Pinterest: Tons of learning station ideas for all grade levels)

31:09 - Peggy George (YouTube: Khan Academy: Station Rotation Model)

31:19 - @plnaugle (Paula)
That is brilliant. Why hadn't I considered that before? Move the stations, not the students.

31:25 - Peggy George (Tony Vincent: Spruce up your Centers or Stations with Technology

31:55 - Peggy George (Larry Ferlazzo: The Best Resources for Planning Learning Stations)

32:10 - Peg Volak
2nd graders like to move!

32:14 - Peggy George
Larry Ferlazzo always has the best resources on his blog!!! Fabulous for ESL teachers!

32:42 - @bcdtech Maureen
but no more than x amount of students at each station...

33:00 - Brittany Miller
TimerTab |

33:48 - Peggy George
I used to use the Kagan overhead timer in meetings with teachers. It works great! But the online tools are always available and also work great!

34:19 - Peggy George

34:48 - Peggy George
having a timer keeps the teacher from constantly talking and "nagging" :-)

34:54 - Suzanne Sallee
Check out Classroom Screen for some great organizational and management tools:

35:08 - Peggy George
thanks Suzanne!!! That's a new one for me!

35:26 - Suzanne Sallee
Peggy, you will love it!

35:48 - Peggy George
be sure to post your questions for Brittany here in the chat and Lorie will ask her during Q/A if she hasn't already answered it

36:43 - Peggy George
and I found that once they were familiar with the routines for learning stations it didn't require detailed explanations every time!

37:06 - Peggy George
Hi Dejan! I didn't see you come into the room! Thanks for joining us every week!!

37:11 - Kati Searcy 1
@Suzanne - Classroom Screen looks awesome !!! Thanks for sharing

37:21 - terrischulz
THANK YOU- loved it

37:24 - @bcdtech Maureen
"No such thing as average" ...

37:27 - Suzanne Sallee
You are welcome, Kati.

37:41 - Kati Searcy 1
fabulous, Brittany - I have so many new ideas now

37:54 - Peggy George
Brittany, can you give us some specific examples of how you have used stations with your teacher or administrator PD?

38:02 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Do you do station rotations every day?

38:25 - Peggy George
Are administrators reluctant to participate in hands-on learning centers or excited?? :-)

38:37 - Peggy George
I love Hyperdocs!!!!!

39:07 - Peggy George

39:11 - Kati Searcy 1
I'm going to use this in PD classes, too

39:16 - Peggy George
Yes!!! TPACK! SAMR! :-)

39:59 - Peg Volak
Thank you so much!

40:09 - Peggy George
I think any time you can get them moving with hands-on activities and conversations they learn more and use it after the experience :-)

40:20 - Peggy George
thanks Brittany! great examples!

40:44 - Peggy George (Dr. Copper: All You Need to Know about Digital Learning Stations)

40:49 - Peggy George
that's a great resource!

40:53 - Russel
With regard to the 4 C's can you recommend an online whiteboard app for sharing re collaboration

41:02 - Brittany Miller
Aww app!

41:06 - Peg Volak
I like 3, 20-minute stations for my 2nd graders. The first rotation is always the roughest! They are excited!

41:20 - Peggy George
in case you missed our Livebinder link for today

A Web Whiteboard | Aww App

41:35 - Peg Volak
Thank you so much!

42:04 - Peggy George
I don't think any educators like the "sit and git" PD!! Learning by doing!! YES Brittany!

42:10 - Jessie McKinley
Aww can be shared with students

42:11 - Russel
okay thanks, using that one any others

42:29 - Peggy George
