Apple TV In The Classroom – The New Smart Board

Want a Interactive White board but don't have the money. Don't like the idea of being tied to the fron of the room. Lately I have using the Apple TV and the iPad as an alternative to one of the many types of interactive whiteboards currently available to instructors. This combination is amazingly magical. You will walk away with a different attitude towards the iPad in the classroom. You can find out all you need on my website.

Making the Common Core Uncommonly Exciting

The purpose of this session is to inspire participants to use the new Common Core standards as inspiration for exciting and high-level technology projects. While the standards are able to provide a clear understanding of what students need to learn, they do not tell you HOW the students should learn these standards. While each student is different, the desire to be engaged and to use creative outlets are common amongst them all. Pixie3 is the creative tool that we will use to engage learners and collaborate our way through the new standards.

Using Authentic NASA Data in the Classroom

One of the best things about NASA is that YOU own the data. As a federal agency, all NASA sponsored scientific data is made publicly available on the Internet. The trick is knowing where to find it and how to use it. In this session, we will look at some of the NASA online data nodes, the types and formats of data available, where to find free software that can read the data, and how to use this data to meet national science, math, and technology standards in your classroom.
