Educational institutions today seem to be in a constant state of change. New technologies are always emerging, regulations change, and research evolves. As these changes are happen, how do we infuse positive technology integration across the institution effectively? Through this session, participants will explore various technologies that can be integrated into the classroom to encourage innovative course design and student success, as well as, discuss challenges that may be faced through educational technology implementation.
Technology-rich classrooms of today are in a state of change. New technologies are always emerging, regulations change, and research evolves. What creative ideas and inventive solutions exist to take advantage of the vast amounts of knowledge available to us today? How can agile methodologies create learning opportunities? How can technology create a more inclusive environment for accessibility for all learners? How can school districts use micro-credentials to personalize learning? What new technologies can educators and administrators explore to create interactive, collaborative and productive learning?
In this workshop, we'll demonstrate the use of Applied Learning in the Computer Science program at SUNY Ulster. Students participate in teams to develop applications for real customers on campus using Agile methodologies. Faculty will give an overview of this program along with a brief demo of several student projects.
The presentation will discuss how school districts can encourage staff and students to pursue self-paced and self-directed learning in academic areas along with life ready, digital literacy, and coding skills. We'll look at how the Coxsackie-Athens Central School District came to adopt the OYO Class platform to create, publish, and manage micro-credentials that promote personalized staff and student learning. .
A technology-rich classroom is more than going green, going paperless! It is creating a culture of inquiry, collaboration, and creativity. Join this workshop to harness the power of tech tools (ThingLink, Powtoon, FlipGrid, EdPuzzle, AdobeSpark, and Hyperdocs) that will help you enhance teaching and empower student learning. You will experience the power of educational technology in transforming classwork from mono-dimensional consumption into multimodal, interactive, collaborative creation, production, and sharing.
