Digital Age Learning Environments
Many teachers and students use Keynote to present their findings, information, and communicate to others. However, this popular tool/app includes built-in creative ways to present information as well allow teachers and students to use the tool for their own creative purposes.
Having a single tool that contains many ways of doing things allows teachers and students to personalize how they use Keynote. And, in this session, by providing a deep dive, and practice, into the many ways Keynote can be used to support teaching and learning, participants will leave with a creative toolbox to express their ideas.
Technology is not about the tool, but what the tool can bring to the creator as they begin to think outside the box. Many of the current pedagogical practices -- problem and project based learning, challenge-based learning, and design thinking -- all include aspects of design. These connections will be discussed in this BYOD session as well as ways for teachers to foster creativity in their classroom.
By combining the pedagogy and the practical aspects of the use of Keynote during this BYODex session, the participants will leave with the confidence to creatively use the tool for purposes far beyond the simple presentation, including full-motion animation, infographics, image-editing, and many other uses. Kathy is a long-time presenter about the best uses of technology to support teaching and learning and always concentrates on pedagogy first and creation second.
