Join us in sunny Cleveland, Tennessee on Wednesday June 7, 2017.
Although the closest beach is 400 miles by using Mixed Technology Reality, you are able to experience the beach, as well as immersive yourself into the water where you can swim with the fish and fight with 3D Printer sharks, using Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR), Holograms (HT), and mobile apps! Come experience how to use these innovations to enhance teaching, learning, and training from PreK-16.
The goals and objectives of our 2017 P-16 one day conference, June 7, 2017 are:
According to a study by IT Trade Association CompTIA just released in October 2016, around 75 percent of educators think that technology has a positive impact in the education process. Educators also recognize the importance of developing these technological skills in students so they will be prepared to enter the workforce once they complete their schooling.
- Provide teachers with relevant, applicable skills to improve and engage students, using the latest advances in technology in the classroom.
- Identify and use software and applications which are easy to use and will improve student outcomes.
- Identify effective tools to help the instructor maximize use of mobile devices in the classroom.
- Identify effective methods to overcome limitations on technology within the learning environment. (eg. Lack of broadband, lack of one to one ratio of devices per student).
Conference fee for Presenters will be waived and they get to wear a really cool Hawaiian shirt!
