NEW in 2016: ISTE Campfires!
Introducing ISTE Campfires, a new format offering at ISTE 2016! These organic, participant-driven learning experiences, organized by topic, are designed for learning and sharing in an open environment. Join us in lively discussions centered on hot topics for educators while building your personal PLN. Sit around the “campfire” after hours to share ideas, make connections and learn from one another. Move the 10,000-foot-level theoretical discussions to concrete ideas, lessons or actions during breakout discussions with like-minded individuals.
Each campfire room will have an overarching ed tech topic or theme. Participants will propose and vote on sub-topics related to the larger theme. Then, like-minded educators and practitioners will break into smaller conversation groups. Visit each campfire to get unique perspectives on the same topic. Other topics may arise organically, and cross-pollination of topics is expected and encouraged. Please feel free to bring ideas and resources to share with others or just show up and listen.
Campfire topics include:
STEM/STEAM: Topics include maker/tinkering; coding; programming and robotics; electronics; 3D printing; and gamification.
Mobile Learning: Topics include wearables; augmented reality; Chromebooks and apps; Google; and 1:1 and BYOD programs and implementation.
Professional Learning: Topics include professional development models and coaching strategies.
Teaching and Learning Strategies: Topics include digital citizenship, project-based learning and online/blended/flipped learning.
Join the conversation as we launch this new inclusive format! Check the program search or download the ISTE 2016 mobile app for details.
Monday, June 27, 5:30 - 7:30 p.m.
