Purpose Games
Presentation Site
Purpose games is a great way for teachers to create and use games that help students learn. Teachers can create or use already created maps, charts, anatomy, quizzes, or really anything you are teaching in a game format. For example if you are studying the United States you could have your students go online and play a game that tests their knowledge of the political and physical geography of the US. You could have your students focus on a specific region, or topic like capitals. Teachers can set up tournaments that allow students to play on another and determine a class champion

CANCELLED: Flipping for Technology
Limited Capacity seats available

Presentation Site
We've been hearing about the Flipped Classroom for a while now, but it seems overwhelming, and there are definitely some challenges. Teaching flipped computer technology classes for over a year has taught me a thing or two about what works and what doesn't when using this new pedagogical model. In this session, I will share my experiences flipping classes at the high school and college levels. Tips will include how to structure resources, how to introduce the model to students and use it with them on a daily basis, and what you do during class time. I will also focus on answering your questions about how to make this model work for you. Time permitting, we can also explore some of the tools that can be used to flip your class.
