TICAL WEBINAR 

Recognizing Lies:  An Introduction to Literacy 

in the Post-Truth Era 

November 30, 2017 1:30 to 2:00 p.m. PST

Description:  The spread of misinformation is nothing new, but websites and social media make it far easier to distribute and more difficult to detect.  This webinar offers an overview of literacy skills today's educators need, both personally and to help their students become more discriminating consumers of media.  Online resources will be provided for use following the webinar.  

Presenter:  Susan Brooks-Young is an experienced teacher and administrator.  Susan now works with educators internationally, focusing on practical technology-based strategies for personal productivity and effective technology implementation in classrooms.  Mobile technologies and BYOD programs are areas of particular interest for her, as is thoughtful, deliberate use of social media.




CASCD is excited to offer several workshops this year focused on developing and implementing a trauma-sensitive environment.  We will be offering the initial training with additional training to follow.  

Childhood trauma is real, it is prevalent and it impacts students, their learning and the adults in their lives quite significantly.  In this engaging, relevant and practical session, learn from childhood trauma expert Kristin Souers, MA LMHC, (author of "Fostering Resilient Learners:  Strategies for creating a trauma-sensitive classroom").
