Join educators from around the world as we Hack the Classroom – Saturday, Oct. 14th

Two young students work on a seismographic project for Hack the Classroom.

Educators face an entirely new set of challenges and opportunities in today’s constantly evolving technological landscape. Digital transformation can have a profound impact on the education experience, but it’s becoming harder than ever to keep up with, identify, and incorporate the best strategies and solutions for your classroom.

Enter Hack the Classroom: It’s a live, online event designed to inspire educators, ignite new ideas, and showcase what’s possible in today‘s schools and classrooms. Broadcasting live on October 14th, Hack the Classroom will bring together the latest teaching methods, tools, and technologies to spark creativity and curiosity in students and educators alike. We’ll also share tips, tricks, and inspiring stories from educators all across the globe, unlocking new ways to empower the students of today to create the world of tomorrow.

 

Tune in live to the event on October 14, 2017, 8:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. PDT.

 

Our theme for this Hack the Classroom event is all about:

Sparking creativity and curiosity to empower the students of today to create the world of tomorrow.

Hack the Classroom will feature classroom hacks from educators, discussions from inspiring thought leaders, and resources to help you get started. The key is to start with just a few small steps.

By attending our live, online Hack the Classroom event, you can:

  • Hear from Alan November, live from Boston, MA. Alan’s approach is to support students in becoming “problem designers” as a critical step in tapping their imagination and curiosity.  Providing a framework for lines of inquiry and “messy” problems to be developed can be a stepping stone to helping students learn how to think through increasingly complex and creative conundrums.
  • Look into Tammy Dunbar’s tech-infused classroom in Manteca Unified School District to see how technology is engaging her students and empowering them to meet high standards.  Tammy will share the top five tools to support creativity and curiosity.
  • Learn how courses on the Microsoft Educator Community can prepare you to incorporate rich STEM lessons into your classroom, whether you are an elementary or a secondary teacher, and see the results in action with a school in the UK.
  • See how students at Renton Prep are using the new video features in the Photo App to share their learning creatively.
  • See innovative class hacks from MIE Experts around the world.
