Speak Up! Transforming Classroom Discussions

Published by:

Presenter: Robert Appino
Location: Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

Presentation Description: Some students enjoy speaking up in class while others don’t. This is a potential situation in many classrooms. In what ways then, can we promote more students to share their ideas?

This presentation will briefly introduce research undertaken on face-to-face and virtual discussions and discuss some of the literature involved. Based on the findings, I will also highlight some of the benefits of virtual discussions and provide links for experiment in your classrooms.

Virtual Worlds for Learning and Teaching: Power Examples to Get You Thinking

Published by:

Presenter: Scott Merrick
Location: Nashville, Tennessee, USA
Twitter:  @scottmerrick

Presentation Description: Scott Merrick has been exploring virtual worlds, a.k.a. 3D online environments, for years and has focused for the past half decade on their potentials for extending learning and teaching onto the global stage. He has been known to mashup technologies in order to get a point, or points, across. This session utilizes a live exploration of a custom-built Wallwisher.com webpage with voice narration created in Audacity. Learn a little bit about several more or less randomly selected (from hundreds existing) examples of the power of virtual environments to help establish “sense of place at a distance.” Then visit the wall itself in order to fully explore resources which a 20 minute recorded session can only overview.

Thinking Big About Learning

Published by:

Presenter: Glenda Baker
Location: Tokyo, Japan
Twitter:  @glendab

Presentation Description: What does recent research say about teaching and learning with technology? What are some of the generalizations we can make about the climate and culture in effective technology rich learning environments?

In this presenation I’ll share some generalizations I found in researching this topic and explore some of the factors that support technology integration. Identifying generalizations can affirm the hunches we have and provides evidence to support our initiatives to upgrade and transform teaching and learning.

I have set a Think Big About Learning webpage with some tools for us to interact via during and after the presentation. I hope you’ll join the backchannel conversation, particapte in the polls, and post your own examples. Let’s Learn, Share and Remix ideas together.

Creating and Playing in Minecraft

Published by:

Presenter: Alexander Fryer
Location: Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA
YouTube:  legoarf

Presentation Description: Minecraft is a game and virtual world you may have heard about but not know a lot about. I created this presentation to show adults what students are doing in Minecraft, some basics of the game, and how people (even adults) are using Minecraft in creative, fun and interactive ways. In this presentation I share some of the worlds I’ve created in Minecraft, describe how I’ve learned about Minecraft primarily using the Minecraft Wiki and YouTube videos created by other users, and show some clips from videos demonstrating some of the possibilities of Minecraft. I hope this presentation inspires you to learn more and ask your students about what they have created in Minecraft.
