Preconference Workshop


To Thinkfinity and Beyond: Free Resources and More

Marc Johnson and Mary Mehsikomer

12/08/12, 12:30 PM-3:30 PM is a web site and community with over 60,000 free curriculum resources for K-20 learning. Learn how to access these resources and use them effectively to improve student engagement in your classroom. Participants will learn how to search the Thinkfinity database, explore learning objects and lesson plans, find activities that will wow their students and participate in the Thinkfinity Community. We will explore other great resources as well and learn how to connect these resources to building 21st-century skills, including communication, collaboration, creativity and critical thinking.
