Making Digital Resources Work for You
Using Digital Resources in the Classroom!
The tenth seminar in the NSDL series, "Making Digital Resources Work for You" was
held on Tuesday, May 22, 2007, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Eastern time. The presenter
was Robert Payo, Education and Outreach Specialist at the National Science Digital
Twenty-four (24) participants were present at the live Web Seminar in addition to
the presenter and the NSTA staff. Participating educators represented the states
of Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, New
Jersey, New York, Ohio, Texas, Virginia, West Virginia, and Wyoming. One participant
joined the program from Spain.
In this program participants learned about how to use some of the recent tools NSDL
provides such as a tool to find resources associated with specific science benchmarks.
The presenter also explored some specific NSDL resources along the way based on
participant interest. He also shared examples of how teachers have used online materials
and technologies effectively and safely in their classrooms. All participants received
a copy of NSTA's SciGuide on Science and Our Food Supply, grades 5-8.
Here are some comments provided by the participants at the end of the Web Seminar:
- "The speaker introduced a wide variety of resources I'd never heard before.
These resources will be useful in my classroom."
- "This was very relevant. The faculty in the School of Education are discussing
21st Century Learning using technology, and much of what was covered tonight
included in that discussion."
- "This content was very valuable/relevant to me. I teach pre-service
and some are very reluctant to use technology. However, they love
I found ways to help them use and evaluate the technological resources."
- "I work with teachers to help them locate and effectively use technology
with their students. This web seminar provided a wealth of resources.
I am excited
to check them all out and to share them with my teachers."
Thanks to the participants and to Mr. Payo for an engaging opportunity for learning
and a job well done!
