Do you teach in an unconnected classroom? You can still use some of the amazing resources available through the internet as long as you can connect during your planning time. In this session with an experienced Corrections teacher, learn how to download YouTube videos, zip files, create hyperlinks, and transport your finished lesson in such a way that you can use it in an unconnected classroom.


    This professional development activity/course is designed for:

  • ELA, social studies, science, or technology teachers and tutors of all levels
  • DOC teachers

Through multimedia, students can experience significant historic moments and explore documents, artifacts, and places. They can explore science through experiments, hands-on tools, and real life images. Studies have long shown that multi-sensory learning helps our brains remember information better than single-sensory learning. Multi-sensory learning is also in line with the theory of multiple intelligences. However, if you work in an unconnected classroom, such as in Corrections, these resources may seem inaccessible.

In this session, facilitator Marie LeBlanc will demonstrate how to download YouTube videos, zip files, and hyperlink to downloaded files. She will show examples of history timelines she created and provide a template for creating a timeline that can form the basis of an engaging lesson. Participants will discuss how to integrate multimedia activities into instructional strategies, and will be able to offer flexible delivery (face-to-face or distance/remote learning) in their lessons.

Want more? Marie will return on May 11 with Multimedia Choice Boards for ELA Lessons.

Please note: You cannot access this session from the SABES website. You will receive an email one to two days before the session with access instructions.
