Helping the modern educator navigate the ever changing landscape of learning design and technology is challenging but fun! In this poster/demo presentation, I will share three time-tested and effective teaching strategies, The Twitter Top 5, PLN 3-Point Reflections, and The Great Debate. Additionally, I will share a new teaching strategy, Deconstructing Monument Valley that I will continue to use because it was so successful in Fall 2015. You will leave this presentation with four new teaching strategies that you can modify for your classrooms! Conference participants will receive access to the instructional materials for these activities via Google Docs.
