Date: Tuesday, December 12
Time: 8:00PM Eastern/5:00PM Pacific time
Let's talk about how we can leverage technology to inspire students to think, dream, create and learn. Monica Burns will be leading a discussion for you all to share:

  • Why do we want students creating and not just watching and listening to content?
  • How do we incorporate creating into lesson plans in any subject area?
  • What do we as educators need to learn or change in order to do this effectively?
  • What EdTech tools should we be using?
  • What are some examples and results from students creating?
This is a preview of Monica's four sessions at FETC. You'll want to talk to her both here and at her FETC sessions
