Tired of “101 apps to change your classroom”? Comfortable with digital technology but not always satisfied with the pedagogy behind its use in school? Wonder about the future of education (even have a few ideas about it) but are too busy to develop visions and plans? We know how you feel.
Let’s get together and develop those ideas for use in our classrooms. Through presentation, sharing, and collaborative challenges, we will sharpen our vision for the future and build plans for our classrooms and schools. We envision an active day with time to design, refine, and share tech/teaching plans with fellow educators. Bring your tech tools, your questions, and your teaching imagination, and we will teach and learn together.
