Proposal summary

Purpose & objective

The purpose of this presentation is to introduce educators to the #Supermuch Philosophy and inspire them to use the guiding principles in lesson design. This poster session will allow participants to interact with the principles, discuss current classroom practices, and work toward engaging students in authentic ways. The #Supermuch Philosophy is not about tools, but there are a variety of creation and collaboration tools that can be used in a #Supermuch classroom as teachers design lessons around creativity, voice and choice, and global collaboration.
