A lot of Prufrock blog space has been devoted to using technology in the classroom, and there are so many websites, programs, apps, and other tools out there to make your classroom a more exciting and engaging place that we could keep writing about it forever. We spend less time, however, on how technology can help teachers outside the classroom. One great resource is webinars. Webinars take place all the time—at least three gifted-focused webinars will be taking place this week alone.
- The University of California, Irvine is hosting a webinar tomorrow, February 26, at 7 p.m. Pacific time called “Tech Tools to Differentiate and Engage Gifted Learners.” Registration is free and open to the public.
- SENG (Supporting Emotional Needs of the Gifted) is also hosting a webinar tomorrow called “Understanding Insanity: Practical Applications for Parents, Teachers, and Counselors.” It is hosted by Michelle Kane, Ed.D. and takes place at 7:30 p.m. Eastern time.
- NAGC hosts WOW! Webinars on Wednesdays, and this week’s session (which takes place on February 27 at 7 p.m. Eastern time) is called “Implementing the Common Core State Standards with Various Program Models in Gifted Education.” It is presented by Alicia Cotabish and Bronwyn MacFarlane.
Although many webinars charge fees for attendance, some (like the UC Irvine one, above) do not. If you know of any particularly interesting webinars taking place in the near future, please feel free to share them below!
