Keynote PresentationWe Must Do These Things!Speaker: Hall Davidson | Senior Director, Global Learning Initiatives, Discovery Education
It is the time of fabulous transition. How and why you should:
Afternoon Breakout Sessions Putting the STEAM in STEM by Finding Stories to Tell Students engage when they tell stories –and the digital transition has given STEM students and teachers story-‐telling tools undreamed of ten years ago. Molecules, landforms, architecture, and mathematics can finally tell their story with animations, game-‐based videos, and the wild web. There are apps that make it simple. New tools allow students to synthesize and demonstrate knowledge in ways that teachers can assess for understanding with great efficiency. Yes, an old cog can learn new tricks.
Tricorders of the Brave New WorldYour device reveals outer space (live), your own follicles, or close-‐ups of Van Gogh’s brush strokes. From opening locks to making replacement organs, see where life is headed and how classroom technology awakens student perspectives. Seismographs, sensors, heart beats, orrery, eyes for the blind, and more. Wearable tech, VR and AR have changed the world from auto repair to walks in the park. Let’s match Monday morning with tomorrow. Continue to look for more details in upcoming Teacher eNews. Please note, the keynote and breakout sessions are first-come, first-served.
