We're sponsoring 20 teachers/tech facilitators virtual attendance at the conference on June 29th from our studio at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. Participants will hear the conference keynote speaker, participate in an interactive workshop, virtually tour the conference areas via video, and participate in two concurrent conference sessions. Winners MUST provide their own laptop and take care of their own travel costs. We will be providing breakfast and lunch - - and you'll have ample time to pick the brains of MAGPI staffers about using technology in your classroom!
Here's what we're planning for the day:
|9:00 AM||Welcome and Introductions|
|9:15 AM||Interactive Technology Demos with MAGPI Staff|
Interested in videoconferencing? What about virtual reality? Virtual worlds? We'll be setting up mini hands-on educational technology stations so you can experiment with and discuss with MAGPI staff members.
|10:30 AM||ISTE Conference Keynote Presentation|
|12:30 PM||Hands-on Workshop: Google Guide: 29 Secrets for Using Google in the Classroom|
Tap into the full potential of Google with some insider tips and tricks for classroom, administrative, and personal use. This fast-paced session offers something for all participants. This interactive workshop will be led by Howie DiBlasi.
|4:00 PM||Concurrent Session: Digital Learning Farm: Students as Contributors |
We'll discuss six highly motivating learning jobs: tutorial designers, official scribes, researchers, global communicators, learning documentary producers, and solvers of real problems. This session will be led by Alan November.
