In this fast-paced, "hold onto your seats" session, participants learn about and see replicable examples of imaginative, thought provoking ways to use emerging technologies. In a totally updated version of last year's session, you learn about maker spaces, avoiding flipped classroom "flops," low cost 3D printing, and wearable technologies including the Apple Watch and inexpensive devices for kids. Topics also include brand new resources not yet in existence at the time of this proposal. The replicable classroom examples reveal how students demonstrate newly gained knowledge using a variety of existing and emerging digital tools. The term "Electronic Constructivism" was coined by this presenter, who believes that the real power of using technology is generated when teachers ask thought provoking questions and provide intriguing scenarios. The bottom line: it all hinges on good teaching. Participants leave this session with an overview of current trends, a collection of teaching ideas, and a link to all of the resources discussed. No experience necessary: just an open mind, an adventurous spirit, and a sense of humor. (Presenter(s): Maureen Yoder, Professor, Lesley University)
