Attendees may select up to seven of the nearly 30 interactive workshops to attend during the two-day conference. Topics range from videoconferencing and podcasting to robotics and green-screen technology. All workshops are led by experienced Langley faculty or outside experts and are held in 50-minute blocks.
The conference kicks off each day with a keynote address from a leading technology expert. October 8 features Dr. Kathleen King – award-winning author, digital media/instructional technology expert, and co-host of the 5 million listener podcast, “The Teachers’ Podcast” – who will discuss how to prepare teachers to function inside a brave new world filled with technological possibilities. On October 9, Don McNamee from Kristin School in Auckland, New Zealand, will share his expertise via live videoconference, discussing how new television tools such as Slingbox and Livestation can be put to good educational use.
At the end of each day, you will have the opportunity to browse our tech playground which features numerous 5- to 10-minute mini-sessions. As you rotate through the stations, you will discover how teachers found a single tech integration item useful in the classroom.
Join us for an interactive session at the end of the conference on Friday, October 9 when we will use personal response systems to learn from you and with you. A panel of teachers will be available to field answers to your burning questions and offer their hands-on, classroom-tested words of wisdom.
