This session is for teachers that have the basics of the LMS down and want to take things to the next level. Collaboration with others is a huge part of what we do in PLTW. We will also show you how to create a shared quiz/test bank on the LMS and be able to design and share class resources with other teachers through the LMS. Come get answers to those questions about how you can make all your digital resources work together. Create and use interactive rubrics, embed YouTube videos, design your lessons to be flipped, embed links to your Blackboard, Edmodo accounts, and use other online resources right in your PLTW courses.
