May 16th, 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM (EST)
 
Too Scared to Learn: Teaching that Makes a Difference to Successful Learning
 
Presenter: Jenny Horsman, Spiral Community Resource Group

 
This webinar is co-sponsored by WE LEARN (Women Expanding: Literacy Education Action Resource Network).  Please click here for more information about WE LEARN.
 
The latest brain research provides solid ground for opening new conversations and exploring simple strategies that make teaching and learning less frustrating. Paying attention to how to create new pathways in the brain, to reshape the brain in the aftermath of trauma, should be at the core of teaching, not the extra we believe we have no time for when going gets tough. This session will provide a brief straight-forward introduction to the brain research, what to do in the classroom, and where to find further resources.

From Learner Stories to Language Lessons:  An Introduction to the  
 "Learners' Lives as Curriculum" Framework
 
Presenter: Maricel G. Santos, San Francisco State University

This interactive webinar aims to help adult ESL teachers understand and develop language lessons that grow out of the experiences, interests, and needs of their ESL learners. Participants will be introduced to Gail Weinstein's Learners' Lives as Curriculum framework and the relevant research findings that demonstrate the role of learner stories in language acquisition and community-building in the classroom. Participants will have the opportunity to see or discuss examples of model language lessons that use the LLC framework, tips for finding/gathering learner stories, and design their own stories-based literacy lesson.  Participants will also be invited to join a network of teachers who are committed to making "learners' lives" the center of the language learning experience.

Adult Learners and 21st Century Technology: What Kinds of Skills Should We Be Developing? 
 
Presenter: Erik Jacobson, Montclair State University

Adult literacy and basic education classes have always prepared learners to use reading and writing classes in their everyday lives. How has technology changed that? This webinar will focus on the kinds of skills people need to work with 21st century technology. The presenter will review research that helps move us beyond the basics of logging on and towards an understanding of the kinds of analytical and critical thinking that technology use supports and demands. Participants will be invited to share their own technology histories as a means of looking for larger trends in learning and instruction.
