#EdTech207 is scheduled for August 6-8, 2019 in Portland, Maine
This strand provides participants the opportunity to reimagine the typical research assignment and shift the lens to provide students with an authentic, self-driven learning experience. Students will be encouraged to find their voice as they feel empowered to make a difference.
Education is about students, but sometimes other things get in the way of keeping our focus on them and their needs. This session will provide teachers with some technology resources to leverage student voice and choice in their classrooms.
This strand is designed for teachers who want to move toward integrating technology to empower students. Participants will learn ways to make lessons interactive and explore how to extend the walls of the classroom by connecting with other learners, educators, classrooms, community members, and experts using collaborative tools.
This strand provides participants the opportunity to apply the principles of design thinking (people-centered, empathy-fueled problem solving) to transform both their classrooms and their teaching strategies. Participants will experience a mix of high, low, and no tech approaches to making meaningful solutions through the design process.
