With increasing technology and innovative educators, the World is getting smaller and our small isolated, school is "getting bigger!"
Let us show you how an iPad & a caring, innovative teacher can make a student who doesn't have running water at home value their education and want to be "more."
Technology + Relationships= Success
The important thing about the technology isn't the things that plug in but what we create with them. We'll investigate, design, create, and evaluate products in this prototyping workshop and discussion.
Emerging technologies open new doors for teaching and learning. Too often, these tools are used to repackage traditional ways of doing things instead of transforming instructional approaches. This conversation focuses on emerging tools that leverage teachers' ability to meaningfully assess student understanding and help achieve learning goals.
Participants in this two-session workshop will iterate, pitch, and develop digital stories capturing possible futures of public education. Participants will team up around compelling pitches and produce their works through forms like film, social media from the future, and time-travelling geocaches. We’ll develop a web resource to share our work.
