Well, friends, I haven’t been posting on my blog this week because I was plugged in to the COABE app. I even made it to the leaderboard on the COABE App! I usually hovered around #15, but finally captured a screenshot at #18…barely hanging on to my spot in the top 20.
It provides the option to send posts to Twitter, so I recommend following the conference at the hashtag #COABE16, if you aren’t already. There seemed to be some folks on the app but not Twitter, and others posting to Twitter but not the app. Best to just be multi-channel and get a bit of everything!
Equally important as having a social media presence, I avoided producing a ton of copies by posting my presentations to the COABE Adult Education Repository. I am all about saving some trees! Here are the slides.
How can you prepare your students and program for computer literacy, critical thinking, and the high school equivalency (HSE) exams all at the same time? Do you feel you could get more value out of your investment in technology and computer-based curricula? Join two blended learning specialists from Essential Education for examples of how adult education programs have successfully used blended learning in their classrooms. We will use algebra lessons as a model to transform existing adult education classes into blended learning. Come to get your questions answered, share your successes, and make technology work for you.
No matter what you are teaching, we have a writing sample for you! Learn how to use rubrics to help your GED, TASC, HiSET, ABE and ESOL students improve their writing skills and scores. Two members of the Essential Education design team will explain the process we use to develop our proprietary rubrics. Participants will break into small groups to practice using a rubric to grade writing samples. Everyone will leave with useful strategies and free teaching tools. Identify the skills your students need to become excellent writers and meet their educational goals!
