8/8/2016 11:46:11Nitya NarasimhanI am a technology advocate and an software/systems developer and architect interested in building or supporting ed-tech solutions, particularly for the K-8 demographic. I am particularly passionate about STEM and teaching kids to code/make things to encourage problem solving.

I am also a parent with a child in elementary school, and as a result am interested in understanding ideas like flipped learning (which involve parents as partners) and want to help support or trial new ideas and initiatives in the space
YesTools & Strategies for Flipped Learning -- who has tried this and what are the challenges?

Digital Storytelling

Use of emergent technologies (Google Cardboard, Mobile Apps etc.) to create enhanced learning experiences for students outside the classroom.

Lesson Plan strategies (finding, creating, sharing and reviewing lesson plans for developing curriculum for K-8)
HourOfCode and Computer Science education options (from Scratch to Robots)

Emergent Technologies (Virtual Reality, Beacons, Location-Based Apps) and how they might be useful for in-class or after-school activities.

Flipped Learning and how parents can be engaged as learning partners to support at-home activities
http://nityan.me (under development)nityaI am the founder/organizer of the Google Developer Group in Hudson Valley (https://www.meetup.com/gdg-hudson-valley/) and am passionate about STEM advocacy.

Via GDGHV, I have run "Hour Of Code" sessions at elementary and high school levels, and would love to meet and work with teachers/administrators who are running such events (or are interested in running such events) in their schools.

An example of the event we ran in 2015 can be found here (https://hourofcode2015.splashthat.com/)
8/8/2016 14:00:23Carol BahruthHello everyone! I've been involved in both school administration and classroom teaching and I must say that I prefer the latter! This Fall, I will be teaching First Tech Challenge Robotics and an Introductory course in Computer Science as well as coaching Girl's Varsity Volleyball. In Spring, I'll be teaching Detective Fiction.

My interest is in the use of technology in the classroom for meaningful work, such as connecting and collaborating with other students worldwide.
YesProject-based learning for certain, as well as how other teachers are using technology to support learning. Glogs, Comic Strips, Common Core, Wallwishers, etc.Wikis, Digital Storytelling, PBLpoughkeepsieday.org@carolbahruthLooking forward to a great day of learning and collaboration!
8/9/2016 13:39:25Allie CashelI work with a company called Postcard.com. One of our platforms, Postcard Educate, is a social action platform created specifically for classrooms across all grade levels. It is designed for educators working to inspire students to become global citizens dedicated to making the world a better place. With Postcard Educate, teachers have access to an engaging, common-core aligned tool for integrating social action into their curriculum, and students gain experience creating their own grassroots social movements. We partner with schools, youth groups, and teachers interested in bringing social activism into the classroom. Utilizing the Educate platform and curriculum, educators engage their students around a cause or social movement of their choice. This can be as simple as asking for healthier school lunches in the cafeteria, or as ambitious as sending messages directly to a senator or the president.NoDigital Storytelling, Project Based Learning, How to build something for common core I'd love to run a session on Postcard Educate, and on bringing activism into the classroom. This spring, we ran a similar session at the Museum of the City of New York's Teaching Social Activism Conference, and it went very well!

8/28/2016 12:12:46Jim FlanneryI am a web developer, entrepreneur, and life-long learner. I'm trying to solve the great problem of how to educate our youth.

So far, my journey has led me to focus on peer-to-peer learning and unschooling. You can see some of my work with peer-to-peer learning at OpenSourceHigh.com where we've had students make video lessons teaching one another. The students content is amazing and inspiring - but there is much more work to be done to create something truly robust and powerful.

I'm particularly interested in see if there are ways to use peer-to-peer learning to enable more students to access the benefits of unschooling.
