Bringing Learning to Life – Preparing Students for Success.
Thu, Dec 6 2007 – 8:00 AM to 3:00 PM Central
Ramada Hotel and Convention Centre
Explore what it means to teach and learn in a 21st century learning environment. Today, the pressure to improve academic performance and to prepare students with the skills they need to succeed is greater than ever before. Achievement levels improve even faster when students and teachers are comfortable with technology. This conference is designed to help you rethink how an innovative educational environment can enable students to achieve in school and prepare them to succeed in the future. With subject matter experts from across Canada and the United States, listen as they share their experiences and expertise in digital learning projects, the research, assessment and the pedagogy that supports them.
Recent research has shown that the more access students have to technology-based learning, the greater their engagement and achievement. Join keynote Anne Davies, Ph.D. as she discusses Learning and Assessment in 1 to 1 Laptop Classrooms: What the Research Says. Building on almost 30 years of experience in education, Apple’s technology engages and empowers students and advances teaching and learning in a changing world. Rethink how technology can help you meet your student achievement goals. What you will learn: In addition to Anne’s keynote and a closing keynote by Kevin Davies on “Getting Started with a Digital School – A Recipe for Success”, this conference will feature two concurrent tracks – one pedagogically focussed, and one technically focussed. Hear from experts in each of these areas about key success strategies for a digital school environment, from classroom management and best practices to support and networking strategies. These speakers will share their expertise.
