TECH KEYNOTE - Sketch Your Thinking
Limited Capacity seats available

Every day in our classrooms we ask our students to design and demonstrate their learning. They channel their efforts to develop presentations, videos, and prototypes. Often missing from the equation is the opportunity to help them develop their creative process. 
Something as simple as reaching for a pencil and paper can help students begin that journey. Listen to Manuel share how using simple sketches can help students and teachers think openly about their ideas. Learn strategies to support your students to quickly generate designs, and then use them to share with others for perspective and constructive feedback. As you step into the sketch arena, he will guide you to shift your mindset from seeing drawing as an artistic process to seeing it as a thinking process and beyond.

TECH: A Process A Hack and A Tool Walk Into A Classroom
Limited Capacity seats available

Every day we ask our students to design and create. Prototypes. Graphics. Videos. Presentations. Solutions. However, supporting those students through a creative process is often overlooked. We simply provide students with a rubric, a device, a due date and we say, “Go!” What we are left with are default fonts, pixelated images and poorly constructed models. Learn how to support student creativity by introducing them to a design process, inexpensive classroom hacks, and simple tools and materials.
