Cooking with Curiosity

Engagement. Rigor. Innovation. Yes, we want our students to have the opportunity to change the world, but how? In our short time together, I want to encourage the facilitation of curiosity and technology can help us get there. In fact, I truly believe it is the best ingredient we can provide for our students, our lessons, and for ourselves.

Their Hands

Our students know things, and it is up to us as educators to facilitate deeper learning and provide ample feedback; but how? In a time when we have standards to cover, tests that seem to hold our students’ creativity hostage, and accountability applying more pressure than ever, it’s about time we took a step back and put the learning into our students’ hands.

Starting a Math Fight

Math teachers have a wealth of free resources available to them and a breadth of people who are willing to help. Join us for a jam-packed day with websites and tools that will get students arguing, thinking, and challenging the way that they think about math. From a pitcher of water to ziplining and much more, we will explore sites that are good for all grade levels and are sure to change the way your students interact with mathematics!

Navigating a Google Suite Classroom

The world of Google for Education will certainly change the way you teach. From teacher workflow tools to classroom activities, teachers will work together as we make the shift from a traditional classroom to a tech-savvy learning environment. Whether you are a beginner or advanced, everyone will leave with a box of resources ready to apply to their classrooms.
