Atlas Exploration @ the BBQ
Facilitators: Barry & Lisa
Location: Back of the Bayside Amphitheatre
Ever wondered how to use the tools and power of Atlas Rubicon to impact teaching and learning in your classroom? Atlas Rubicon can be more than just a filing system. Come learn how to use Atlas to directly impact student learning! We will touch on this by 'learning the ropes' of Atlas in construction of a unit plan for the goodol Aussie 'sausage sizzle'. We also hope to show you some of the more advanced features and power of Atlas, so that you can see what is possible if your units are up to date. Please bring along one of your own units and the summative assessment for this unit so that we can help start the construction of this if we have time. <Btw, carnivores and omnivores may appreciate this session more than herbivores.>
