Are you a teacher (4th grade to 12th grade) who is interested in developing lesson plans featuring digital content? Could you benefit from a half-day workshop focused on learning about digital collections and ideas about how to use digitized primary source materials within the classroom? Please consider attending a free workshop on June 24th! The workshop will be held in the Room UM (Upper Mezzanine) 16, Whittemore Library, Framingham State University, State Street, Framingham, from 9:00 AM until 1:30 PM on Monday, June 24, 2013.
Although individual teachers are certainly welcome, this workshop is an excellent place for team teachers or grade-level teams to hear about a statewide initiative presenting digital content from cultural institutions in Massachusetts, learn about some existing lesson plans, and get some advice about how to prepare new plans featuring digital content. The workshop will also include some hands-on time when attendees will start developing something to use in their classrooms!
