Create, Mashup, and Remix Media for Engaged Learning
The enormous capacity of the Web provides access to a variety of interesting and compelling media that portray experience, knowledge and the social interaction of people. The Web, along with the technology tools that we have, provide the capacity for creating and sharing media instantly and in a variety of ways. In this workshop, we’ll explore the importance of media as a communicative tool, and then do a deep dive into the tools that can be used for capturing, creating, remixing, and sharing media creations. We’ll apply this to teaching and learning and what it means for helping students become visually literate and competent and creative producers of media that matters. Leave the session with a global yet practical understanding of what is available to create and share media, how this applies to teaching and learning, and how you can get started tomorrow.

Developing the Design Mind: Using Design Thinking in Education
This workshop engages participants in understanding and employing the design thinking process, and helps them to begin developing a design mind, one that sees problems and issues always as a design opportunity. We’ll begin by building a model of design thinking through fun and engaging activities that will set the stage of a design provocation focusing on personalized learning.  Embedded in this process will be strategies to help participants vision design thinking as a 21st Century pedagogy, and one that deeply engages students in developing solutions to human needs. Additionally, other components that support the process, such as developing the types of learning spaces that support such design thinking, will be addressed.  Come learn about a process that supports creativity and innovative thought and practice that can be used to address the unique opportunities of a 21st Century education.
