Thursday Jan 22, 2015 – Featured Session

Session Title: The Maker Movement – A Global Learning Revolution (CS3058)

Primary Presenter: Sylvia Martinez

Session Schedule:
Date: Thursday, January 22, 2015
Time: 1:00-1:40 p.m.
Location: S310GH

Session Description:
The Maker Movement is a global revolution celebrating creativity, ingenuity, problem-solving, and lifelong learning using modern tools and technology. Adults and children are combining new technologies and timeless craft traditions to create exciting projects and control their world. The implications are profound for schools and districts concerned with engaging students, maintaining relevance, and preparing children to solve problems unanticipated by the curriculum. The technological game-changers of 3D printing, physical computing and computer science require and fuel transformations in the learning environment. K-12 educators can adapt the powerful technology and “can do” maker ethos to revitalize learner-centered teaching and learning in all subject areas.

Friday Jan 23, 2015 – Featured Session

Session Title: PBL Gets a “Make”-Over: Prompts, Scaffolding, and Assessment (CS7135)

Primary Presenter: Sylvia Martinez

Session Schedule:
Date: Friday, January 23, 2015
Time: 10:00-11:00 a.m.
Location: S230B

Session Description:
Of course students should have powerful hands-on project-based experiences in the classroom – but how does that happen? This session will explore how to design engaging prompts with helpful (but not TOO helpful) scaffolding. We will also discuss how to manage the project process when students are using cutting edge technology integrated with iterative design. Participants will learn about new research on assessment for projects and real classroom practices with students using modern technology and materials.
