Breaking the Code Pre-Summit Workshop (NEW and UNIQUE to the PA Summit!)

The Google Education Pennsylvania Summit will feature a groundbreaking pre-summit workshop highlighting Culture & Cognition: strategies to unravel how children receive, process and transform information creatively, using technology.  Educators will share in thought provoking and very practical exchanges designed to increase their impact when teaching in front of K-12 urban classrooms.

Sessions throughout the day include the following:

Culture & the Brain - a highly interactive presentation on the power of the brain and the impact of culture, memory and rigor on creativity.  Will feature Emotiv's exciting neuroheadsets!  

Using Technology to Inspire Creative Thinking - strategies to help students realize that thinking is greater than technology, but enhanced when both are used effectively.

A, B, Cs ...a Broken Code - Literacy Foundational Relationship to STEM - how to identify literacy assets across cultures to reclaim the meaning of literacy from reading comprehension to a form of exchange, sharing and remembering that fostered community innovation.

Digital Playground - an open source technology expo highlighting free and low cost education resources for the home and classroom

Youth Gaming & Solutions Experience - utilizing the inherent genius and presence of youth in the technology field to drive impact and lead transformation in education.

The Unconference - a showcasing of who's breaking the code in Philadelphia today through videos and short performance clips.     Provides open time for participants to discuss access to resources in preparation for the closing session - a competitive technology challenge.

Yoga Break: Unlocking the Body - Aligning and Inspiring Movement for Productivity 

Educator Tech Design Challenge - Teacher cohorts will compete to infuse the themes of culture and technology in their classroom settings.
