Proposal summary

Purpose & objective

The playground will be focused on each of the ISTE standards and tie into the year theme of the Teacher Education Network. Throughout the year, TEN is looking toward the future of learning and how to best prepare new educators as well as provide resources for current educators, to implement emerging technologies and focus on new trends in education.
We will have stations where presenters are sharing different apps, tools, ideas for using AR/VR, availability of Assistive tech (like Microsoft Translator and others) to support all the standards.

Creation of engaging activities and resources for educators, whether classroom teachers, coaches, administrators, preservice teachers, many new ideas will be shared.

Outline

We will have each of the TEN members grouped into the playground areas by standards. For example, standard 7, indicator one- "Students use digital tools to connect with learners from a variety of backgrounds and cultures, engaging with them in ways that broaden mutual understanding and learning" with resources, activities and more.
Content will be based on our themes:
Preparing/supporting new and current teachers for the digitally connected world
Using tech to maintain a healthy lifestyle for Ts & students (tie to National Health Month)
Cybersafety
Cyber teachers
Best practices in this online space
How do you teach students with special needs in the online space?
Best practices for adapting instruction for students in the online space
Mentoring (virtual and face to face)
Smart living/teaching in a smart society (artificial intelligence)
Global citizen
Service learning across the globe / Teach SDGs
How to reach out to teachers around the world

There will be different presenters rotating through stations and also one section for live discussions or demonstrations
