Proposal summary

Purpose & objective

The purpose of this presentation is to expose the audience to many different tools they can use to create meaningful learning experiences in and out of their classrooms. The objective of this session is that the audience will develop a working knowledge of these tools during the session. They will also be exposed to some instructional insights about implementing these tools into the classrooms and how to best engage students and share ideas with their colleagues.

Outline

5 min - Introductions, assist audience getting on NearPod!
50 min - Session will be run in a “sweet 16” bracket format. In round one, 8 pairs of web tools will be pitted against each other. The audience will vote for the best tool of each pairing, moving 8 onto the second round. In round two, eight audience members, each representing one of the remaining tools, will advocate for the tool and its uses in the classroom; voting will follow, reducing the bracket to 4 tools. Videos clips of each of the remaining 4 tools will be shown in round 3, and participants will vote again, sending two to the fourth and final round. Presenters will share additional information and background on the tool before the winner of the Ed tech Game show is crowned.
5 min - Close and prizes for winners
