Gig 101 Workshop
Wed, April 19, 2017, 12:30 PM – 4:00 PM CDT
Join us for an interactive workshop for educators focused on demystifying high-speed internet!
Educators - formal and informal - with all levels of technical experience are welcome and encouraged to attend.
Since Google Fiber launched in Kansas City, we've seen one technology innovation after another taking advantage of this advanced high-speed network.
But, what exactly is a 'high-speed internet network'? How does it work? What does 'gigabit' mean? What can you do with it? And, how can you actually use these connections to create new opportunities for your students or your community?
Through a series of individual, small-group, and whole-group activities, this workshop is designed to answer these questions, and help participants explore what high-speed internet networks can do to create new opportunities for learning.
In this workshop, participants will -
- Develop a common understanding of the internet and "Gig"
- Explore possible technology applications that leverage high-speed internet connectivity
- Define the potential of these networks to advance their own work
- Work in teams to brainstorm next steps for turning high-speed internet fueled ideas into reality for their classrooms and communities.
Sign up today! Space is limited.
Please note: Lunch willl be available at 12:30. The workshop will begin promptly at 1:00pm.
This workshop is brought to you by Mozilla, in partnership with KC Digital Drive.
