Join Me at the Reform Symposium #RSCON4


I'm excited to be a part of RSCON this year!  I will actually be presenting three sessions:
On Sunday October 13th at 9:00am CST I will be presenting "Connecting YOU and Your Classroom Globally".  Building connections is important.  This session will cover how YOU can become a connected educator via social platforms like twitter, but also how you can get your classroom and your students connected as well with anything from classrooms around the world, to Olympic Athletes, and so much more!

On Sunday October 13th at 2:00pm CST I will be co-presenting "Transforming Education with Augmented Reality" with the incredible Brad Waid and Drew Minock.  Augmented Reality!  What is it? How does it work?  We'll cover the basics of AR as well as creative ways that you can start using Augmented Reality in your classroom right away!  Exciting way to get kids much more excited and involved in their learning!

And finally, on Sunday October 13th at 5:00pm CST I will be presenting "Flipped Classroom and PBL".  Flipping the Classroom and Project Based Learning (PBL) have become all the rage of late!  Come learn from one "Ninja" math teacher how he successful flipped his classroom and went fully project based!  Scores improved, but most of all student engagement and enjoyment improved as well!

I hope you can join!! Here's a link to all the other presentations, and listed below are a few more details! 

In a few days, thousands of educators from various different countries are expected to attend a free 3 day virtual conference, The Reform Symposium, #RSCON4.  RSCON will be held October 11th to 13th in conjunction with Connected Educator Month.
