K12Online Conference – Building Learning Keynote (video)

The K12online conference is a FREE, online conference organized by educators for educators around the world interested in integrating emerging technologies into classroom practice. A goal of the conference (among several) is to help educators make sense of and meet the needs of a continually changing learning landscape.

This year, Gary Stager and I were pleased to be invited to keynote the conference strand called “Building Learning.” The neat thing about K12online is that all the sessions are archived permanently online for easy viewing.

The best sessions are those where we *DO* stuff!  I immensely enjoyed the Invent to Learn workshop with Sylvia Martinez and Gary Stager (as is very clear by the photos snagged by workshop buds), and I literally got my hands filthy playing with different tools I want to bring into my classroom.  I *have* to have a physical interaction with a tool to be able to think through how it could work in my classroom… just looking isn’t enough.
