Session description

As teachers we spend the majority of our time planning, assessing, grading, and replanning.  Every day our best-laid plans sometimes take an unexpected turn and we are left having to rethink our ideas.  This webinar will explore strategies and tech tools that help us determine if we need to completely reboot or simply recalculate.

Carmen Scoggins  – Spanish teacher / Methodology instructor   Watauga High School / Appalachian State University

Carmen Scoggins teaches Spanish at Watauga High School in beautiful Boone, North Carolina where she is also an adjunct Foreign Language Methodology and Spanish instructor at Appalachian State University.  She earned a Bachelor of Science and Master of Arts in Spanish Education from Appalachian State and is a National Board Certified Teacher.  Carmen is an active member of the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL), the Southern Conference on Language Teaching (SCOLT), and the Foreign Language Association of North Carolina (FLANC).  She is a past president of FLANC and currently serves as the past president of SCOLT.  In 2007, Carmen was FLANC’s Teacher of the Year, and in 2008, she was named the SCOLT Teacher of the Year. In 2015 Carmen received the ACTFL Award for Excellence in Foreign Language Instruction Using Technology with IALLT (K-12).

Carmen has presented at the state, regional, and national levels on integrating technology into the world language classroom, personalizing the language-learning experience, and building student relationships.  She is passionate about getting future world language teachers involved in the profession by presenting and attending conferences.  Carmen is in her 27th year of teaching and sees herself as an eternal student.

01:06:57 Chris Jadav: Has anyone done any work on GDPR as far as using different apps and students needing to submit details?
01:09:02 Helen Myers: Chris – good quesiton. I assume this is why it is so good when apps integrate with an existing school system e.g. Microsft, Google Classroom ..
01:10:56 Florence Barats: Q Does it work with Microsoft teams?
01:10:59 Audrey Lux: ok, thank you
01:11:12 Florence Barats: Sorry!
01:11:22 Chris Jadav: I’m really enjoying learning about different apps and trying different things out and we have a great IT tea. Just wondering if when we look at these things we could flag up that aspect too. I know my own ignorance could trip me up.
