Holy cow! We’re announcing spring workshops when it’s actually spring-ish in Milwaukee. (And by that, I mean it’s rainy and in the 30s. But crocuses are coming up!)
Here’s what we have cooking on the stove:
4/1: 2-3:30 pm: iMovie: Rachael Sullivan will walk you through the basics of iMovie and facilitate a discussion of how and why you might have your students do animated writing, mashups, multimodal composing, remixes or shorts in your English classes.
4/21: 12:30-1:45 pm: Gaming, World Building, and Narrative: Trent Hergenrader will show us how blogs, Google docs, wikis and other technologies are at work in his special section of English 236: Introductory Topics in Creative Writing.
4/22: 1-2:30 pm: ePortfolios and Multimodal Composition: Matt Russell from the Learning Technology Center (LTC) will present ePortfolio, a digital portfolio program integrated with D2L, and discuss how and why you might use it to facilitate multimodal composing in your English classes.
