Multimodal: Using many approaches (visual, audio, kinesthetic) to present content, besides written literature to convey content to achieve maximum understanding by your audience.
Multimodal learning and teaching is the topic I have chosen to learn more about; to dig deeper into. In my case I will be searching for multimodal strategies and ideas I can apply to my teaching to present science content to my students.
The day finally arrived, the team pulled off a successful presentation. We presented our teaching and learning of multimodal content to optimize student understanding of content. I shared my knowledge with many people who stopped by our table. I also lassoed a few people because I was so excited to share about multimodal compositions teachers can use to enhance their instruction. Below is a slide presentation of the different resources/tools that teachers can use other than print materials to present content to their students. If you have any questions any of the resources please contact me.
Upcoming Professional Development: Presentation Roulette Want to learn more about multimodal learning and teaching? Come learn about the variety of ways you can integrate multimodal strategies into your instruction using some of the practices and skills we've been investigating. You can also learn of ways students can show what they know and understand. See information below. Date to be determined.

Spring PD Announcement
Google Hangout on Air Deep Play Group Book Discussion- Multimodal Learning and Teaching
What an experience! Our team read two books. One, Multimodal Learning for the 21st Century Adolescent by Thomas Bean, which I read. The other was Using Technology with Classroom Instruction That Works by Howard Pitler. In the video you will see/hear our discussion where we shared our insights from the books and the usefulness of each source. It was encouraging to learn from the team that we are willing to try new things and doing the best we can within each of our respective context. The beginning of the video you will see/hear the team preparing for the discussion which is a bit rough, but after a minute or two the discussion gets underway pretty well. This is our fourth try after a few hiccups a few days prior, but we finally get the discussion going. Thanks Lidia for hosting.
