Digital tote resources
Purpose & objective
The purpose of this presentation is to present an overview of ten trends and emerging technologies, inspire creative possibilities, and provide examples of how these resources and tools can enhance teaching. The term “Electronic Constructivism” was coined by this presenter, who believes that the real power of using technology is generated by the type of questions teachers ask, and the tasks they ask their students to accomplish. Among the topics covered will be gaze tracking, teaching with drones, the newest collaboration and presentation tools, a maker movement update, avoiding flipped “flops”, and exciting possibilities not yet available. Participants will leave this session with an overview of current technologies and trends, a collection of teaching ideas, and links to all of the resources discussed. For those participants who successfully employed ideas from ISTE2015, this session has been completely updated from last year and additional topics will be added in the Spring of 2016.
I. Introduction – 2 minutes
My research is grounded in constructivist and experiential learning theory, developed and influenced by John Dewey, Lev Vygotsky, Jean Piaget, and Jerome Bruner. Information about the technology and resources will have been gathered by electronic sources and will include articles, manufacturer’s sites, and blogs. Given the nature of emerging technologies, the majority of the articles and web sites cited will be less than three months old at the time of this presentation.
