Our Classroom 2.0 LIVE team has made the very difficult decision to discontinue our weekly webinars. We want to hold one final live webinar this week, August 25th, so all of you who have been such an important part of our community can join us to celebrate and share memories. Our last "hurrah celebration " will be an open mic session similar to our Anniversary Celebrations. We hope all of you will join us and plan to take the mic to share your favorite memories, some of the shows that really made a difference to you with stories about how you used something you learned on Classroom 2.0 LIVE in your classrooms or professional lives. Whether you were a participant or presenter we’d love to hear your stories and take-aways from the show and the resources you learned about. Please join us!
These are the questions we plan to ask on Open Mic so you can come prepared to share your thoughts and stories.
1) When did you first start joining us for our weekly webinars? Who would like to take the mic and share one of your favorite CR 2.0 memories?
2) What are some tech tools or strategies you learned about by participating in CR 2.0 Live? Please share any takeaways you have.
3) How has participating in our webinars enhanced your teaching, your connections, your “best practices”, etc.? Please share any and all ways.
4) Do you have a favorite “aha” moment from one of the webinars you’ve attended? Please share it with us.
5) Have you (or will you) ever included the CR2.0 Live webinar archives in any PD you’ve been a part of whether a face-to-face session, a virtual webinar, or an Edcamp session?
6) What free webinars, online PD opportunities, virtual conferences can you recommend to others to take part in?
Please read the backstory to our decision on our website: http://live.classroom20.com

Shelly will be inspiring us with her fantastic ideas and resources for kicking off the new school year with ideas and tools for icebreakers and community building for both teachers and students.
"It's the little conversations that build the relationships and make an impact on each student." - Robert John Meehan
We can transform our physical and virtual classrooms into active learning communities, where students support each other. The best communities allow students to contribute, collaborate, create, and get to know each other. Students need to build relationships with their peers in order to prevent issues with bullying and ensure the support of one another in succeeding in learning goals. We can encourage this by implementing team building activities, icebreakers, getting-to-know you activities, and collaborative tasks. Shelly is excited to share her fun, inspiring activities and tools with us in our webinar today!
Shelly Sanchez Terrell is an international speaker, elearning and digital learning specialist and the author of Hacking Digital Learning Strategies: 10 Ways to Launch EdTech Missions in Your Classroom, The 30 Goals Challenge for Teachers: Small Steps to Transform Your Teaching, and Learning to Go: Lesson Ideas for Teaching with Mobile Devices, Cell Phones and BYOT.

Science of Happiness and its Impact on School Culture
Classroom 2.0 LIVE webinar “Science of Happiness and its Impact on School Culture” with special guest presenter, Kim Strobel.
June 9, 2018
As our school year comes to a close, this is often the time of year when teachers feel overwhelmed physically and emotionally. Consumed with end-of-year tasks such as grades, report cards, awards assemblies, class parties, cleaning and packing up the classroom and much more, they are completely exhausted. In this week's webinar our special guest presenter, Kim Strobel, will share her passion for happiness and her tips for helping teachers to learn more about how her happiness tips can bring renewed energy to their teaching lives.
In her role as a happiness coach, Kim Strobel has extensively studied and researched the topics of Happiness and Positive Psychology. She has found that when one’s personal happiness increases, he or she is able to affect positive change in education and business outcomes. She captivates audiences of teachers by showing them how the Science of Happiness can help transform your classroom into one where students love to learn and are able to thrive. Kim sprinkles happiness tips and tricks into her education workshops, ensuring teachers re-enter their classrooms with renewed purpose and passion.
Kim Strobel isn’t just the owner of Strobel Education. She’s its driving force. Her wisdom, positivity, and strength inform every aspect—and it shows in the inspiring workshops she presents to teachers who seek to make a difference. She puts herself “in the trenches” with teachers because she was once there herself and knows how important support and encouragement are in creating a successful classroom.
A licensed ELA teacher for grades K-12, Kim has taught in classrooms at all grade levels during her almost 20 years as an education professional. She began her career teaching fourth grade, during which time she served on numerous committees devoted to improving the curriculum and culture of the schools. She next served as a K-12 Literacy Coordinator, helping to develop a school-wide plan to improve literacy achievement and implement new common core literacy standards. Kim found her next challenge as Director of Curriculum and Instruction for a school district, during which time she developed curriculum in all content areas, K-12; collaborated with teachers and administrators to identify instructional needs; and served as a liaison with state and local agencies. Throughout her career, Kim has been recognized at the state and local level for her achievements and contributions to the education field. And most recently, she’s taken her vision of reimagining education to the national stage as a featured keynote speaker at the Innovative Schools Summit in Atlanta, and the School Discipline Conference in Las Vegas.
Professionally, Kim’s a teacher, a consultant, a speaker, a happiness coach and an aspiring author. But her personal life is just as full. When she’s not firing up educators with her signature mix of excitement and experience, she’s a die-hard runner, an advocate for her community’s abandoned animals, and a family-oriented gal who loves spending time with her husband Scott, their four children, two grandkids, and three pups.
