Appeal to your geeky side while delighting the teacher in you. This fast-paced session has been completely updated from the 2016 Christa McAuliffe Conference "Tools and Trends". It will include apps, gadgets, wearable tech, web sites, and other resources. This session will highlight virtual and augmented reality apps, particularly those that enhance a lesson in ways other technologies can't, and those that are highly interactive. Augmented reality producers, such as the New York Times, will be described, along with teacher and student produced projects. You will see teacher tested classroom uses of affordable robots and drones, and how they are being used in makerspace projects. You will learn about many free and powerful apps and resources in all subject areas and grade levels and hear about technologies and innovative ideas that do not yet exist at the time of this proposal. You will learn about tools that you did not know you could not live without, and see innovative apps promoting classroom interaction. The term "Electronic Constructivism" was coined by this presenter who will link these technologies to what it is all about Good Teaching. No experience with these technologies is necessary, but an open mind and a sense of adventure is highly suggested! (Presenter(s): Maureen Yoder, Professor, Lesley University)
