Sessions include learning how to use and teach mobile learning, blended learning, and web mapping (Online Learning Consortium). Create graphs or charts using MS Word to organize data and present it to students. Graphs can be displayed on the interactive whiteboard by saving the files to a Google Drive or email and then accessing them through the whiteboard. Files can also be saved to the whiteboard's desktop (TechLearn, 2013). This interactive learning game aids in teaching science concepts, such as molecular structures. Its 3D models allow students to put together and take apart molecules, which wouldn't be possible for students to do otherwise (Klopfer, Osterweil, Groff, & Haas, 2009). Smithsonian Education online can be used by students who are preparing presentations or research papers, trying to further their understanding of a concept studied in school, or just plain interested in learning something new!
