10:15-11:00 Session 2 - Carl Hooker, Making Virtual Reality a Reality

    • With mobile devices, we now have the ability to transport our students virtually to places all over the world and beyond! Not only that, but with new tools, you can now have your students create their own virtual worlds to model their thinking and understanding of a concept.

1:15-2:00 Session 3- Dr. Matthew X Joseph, Moving From Consumption to Creation

    • We often talk about engagement and students having an active role in learning. However, if you look at the classroom of the 50s, you would see desks in rows, a teacher in the front of the room doing most of the talking, books out on the desks, and students consuming the lesson. Should schools in 2020 or during remote learning follow this same model? The answer should be a resounding, very loud NO, but that is not always the case. In today’s classroom, do we teach by telling information that students are expected to consume? This session will focus on tools and strategies to create active thinkers and learners.
