Session Descriptions:

So. Much. Tech. #AugmentedRealityLearningExperiences -
The real world is not flat after all, so why constrain our classrooms to experience the digital world on a flat screen? The shift from 2D to 3D is as natural as adding color to movies and television was in the 1950’s.a. In many ways, it is even more impactful. Virtual and Augmented Reality is changing education. What started out as something that was simply “cool” has become a way to engage learners like never before. Join us to experience ten different virtual reality classroom activities including an Oculus Rift and HoloLens!

Promoting Creativity: Less Talking and More Doing! -
Creativity and innovation are frequently identified as key 21st century skills, important to success in education and current and future careers. But as discussions of its importance proliferate, information on strategies that teachers can use to foster student creativity is less common. The goals of this session are to note the importance of creativity and innovation using technology, summarize recent research and provide examples of how creativity can be enhanced in today’s schools and classrooms. Become part of the innovative classroom experience with hands-on free activities that promote creativity!

What’s Hot and What’s Not in Multimedia -
So what should we be teaching in any multimedia class? New terms like storytelling sites, responsive design, and non-destructive editing in graphic design are so HOT! Storytelling in web design is becoming a trend that's catching fire. It’s an effective way of engrossing your site visitors while telling them about your products and services. This approach sure beats the dry and impersonal approach of some websites in the past. Whether you teach Photoshop, Flash, Web Page Design, or just are exploring a new class, join us for the latest, greatest multimedia curriculum.

Raising the Modern Geek: The New Technology Skill Set -
Are we preparing students for the technology skills that they will need in this new workplace? This session will focus on the importance of conveying 21st Century Skills of the 4C’s: Critical thinking, Creativity, Communication and Collaboration, and elevating the focus on hands-on technology instruction to engage 21st century learning. Using mobile, we need to engage at every stage and create a technology rich experience each day in our classroom!
