2014 2014-Gamification

The iPad’s Killer App

Published by:

Presenter: Ben Rimes
Location: Mattawan, Michigan, United States


Presentation Description: For the hundreds of thousands of apps on the iPad, there is one often neglected app that already comes pre-installed; the Camera App! Exploration of the world around us using video and images allows students to capture elements of curiosity and real world examples of concepts for assessment, demonstration of knowledge, and creating engaging learning opportunities. This screencast/video will give educators ideas to challenge their students to capture the world around them and move past gamification, towards more playful learning experiences that rely more on intrinsic motivation, rather than extrinsic devices, badges, and stimuli.

2013 Building Learning

T3:Triple Threat in Tech: Art, Music, and Media

Published by:

Presenter: Carol Broos
Location: Gurnee, IL USA

Presentation Title: T3:Triple Threat in Tech: Art, Music, and Media

Presentation Description: Triple threat gridiron football is referring to a player who excels at all three of the skills of running, passing, and kicking. In theater, it is someone who can sing, dance, and act equally the same. In technology is it the ability to excel in creating your own artwork, composing your own music, then producing your own movies.

There are two interviews with educators that are triple threats, Tricia Fuglestad, a K-5 Art Teacher and Linda Keene, an architect and professor at the Art Institute of Chicago.

Once you take the plunge to be a triple threat, by creating your own art, composing your own music and producing your own movies, it will change in the way you interact with all the arts. You will begin to create more, learn more, and share more.

Carol Broos describes her process of creating art, composing music, and putting the icing on the cake, producing movies.

2013 Outside Learning

Making and Sharing Fugleflicks

Published by:

Presenter: Tricia Fuglestad
Location: Arlington Heights, IL


Presentation Description: Do you ever wonder if your students own the learning? They definitely would if they created the teaching resources. Fugleflicks are student-created, art-related movies made by kids for kids to teach something about art. Not only do these short entertaining resources inform our school population but those involved in creating them have a tremendously rich learning experience. Take a look behind the scenes into our process for movie-making with small groups, full classes, and the whole school. Find out how we share what we make with authentic audiences to raise the level of craftsmanship and engagement.
There are many takeaways from this presentation regardless of what you teach as you learn to put your students in the director chair, use their creativity, and apply curricular content for the benefit of all.

2012 Student Voices

Video Story Problems

Published by:

Presenter: Ben Rimes

Presentation Description: Traditional story problems are dull. They’re usually disconnected from real world scenarios and learner’s experiences, and are presented in an artificial manner. Through the use of video, students and teachers can capture genuine moments of curiosity and real world examples for use in the classroom.

Aren’t ready to start filming yourself in the aisles of your local grocery store or park to point out interesting problems? You can easily use video to produce more scripted variations of traditional story problems, provide many open ended questions all tied to a common concept, or start to your flip your classroom with a blending of both teacher and learner voices.

I wanted to provide a mixture of both student examples, teacher examples, and a bit of my thought process for creating this story problems. It’s certainly not limited to Math, as video story problems would work very well for exploring conceptual science problems and reflective language arts of social studies learning. As we all struggle to adopt the Common Core State Standards here in the United States, it’s important to remember that publishing, collaborating, and sharing with other learners online is now a requirement at almost all levels of K-12 education. Giving students a way to share their voice while connecting real world situations to classroom studies is a positive step towards a more student-centered classroom where exploration and curiosity is encouraged!
