|Design Thinking & 3D Printing: Creating Innovative Learning Environments||San Francisco||June 17-19||San Francisco||Greg Kulowiec||3 days||Design Thinking, 3D Printing||Elementary, Middle School, High School||All Devices||Yes||While we cannot predict what the future looks like, we do know that innovation and creativity are skills that our students need and Design Thinking has emerged as a proven framework for helping people develop a creative problem identifying & problem solving mindset. Design Thinking facilitates the process of students first identifying a problem and then proposing and testing solutions, all with the needs of the end-user in mind. In this summer workshop session, we will take a hands-on approach to understanding Design Thinking and how we can use its principles to create a learning environment that engages students, fosters curiosity, and encourages a collaborative approach to solving problems. To further creativity and innovation, we will explore the crossroads of Design Thinking with making and creating with 3D printers. As schools are making 3D printers available to students for creation of real world, tangible models of their 2D prototypes and designs, educators are placed in a challenging position to develop an effective and meaningful vision for integrating this emerging technology into their classroom. When the process of Design Thinking is combined with 3D Printing, educators and classrooms now have the potential to create truly innovative learning environments. Over the course of the workshop, we will explore the process of Design Thinking, how to meaningfully structure a classroom with Design Thinking and we will build capacity for the use of 3D printers in an educational setting. Through the framework of Design Thinking we will explore the meaningful and intentional use of 3D printing. Through existing use cases, projects and classroom ideas, workshop attendees will leave the workshop with increased technical skill and practical application of 3D printing in the classroom via Design Thinking.||https://www.eventbrite.com/e/san-francisco-summer-workshops-2019-registration-55601645017|
|Engaging Students and Inspiring Creativity with G Suite & Interactive Web Tools||San Francisco||June 17-19||San Francisco||Tom Driscoll||3 days||Elementary, Middle School, High School||Chromebook/ Chrome Browser||Yes||In the classroom of today, it can be difficult to design learning experiences that differentiate for learner variability and incorporate student choice. Google’s mission is to “organize the world’s information and to make it universally accessible and useful.” This workshop will focus on how to use G Suite apps, extensions and add-ons to facilitate differentiation, and to personalize instruction through making information accessible to all learners. During this hands-on workshop, participants will explore Google tools to support executive functioning skills, scaffold student learning and accommodate for varied learning styles and academic levels. We will focus on how these tools can support reading, writing and note-taking while allowing students some voice and choice in how they demonstrate their understanding.||https://www.eventbrite.com/e/san-francisco-summer-workshops-2019-registration-55601645017|
|Digital Storytelling: Creating & Publishing Dynamic Digital Stories||San Francisco||June 20-21||San Francisco||Rosey McQuillan||2 days||Elementary, Middle School, High School||All Devices||Yes||G Suite for Education and Google Chrome not only facilitate creative and collaborative learning opportunities for students but also provide amazing tools for curating and publishing student work. In this hands-on workshop, we will explore best practices for using Google Apps on laptops and Chromebooks. From innovative uses of the core Google tools, to creating multimedia with new Chrome apps and extensions, we will discover powerful and innovative ways to empower students to demonstrate and share their learning.||https://www.eventbrite.com/e/san-francisco-summer-workshops-2019-registration-55601645017|
|Personalized Learning||San Francisco||June 20-21||San Francisco||Tom Driscoll||2 days||Elementary, Middle School, High School||All Devices||Explore the rapidly emerging and evolving concept of personalized learning. Through an examination of current research and practical examples in action across the nation, participants will identify key elements of personalization and how these approaches can advance learning for all students. Key ideas explored will include: dynamic learner profiles, flexible pathways and progressions, learner agency, and the essential role of social-emotional learning (SEL) in student-centered environments. Then engage in hands-on simulations and design challenges that will help them effectively implement personalized learning in their classrooms and schools. Leave with a firm grasp of personalized learning along with practical takeaways that they can readily implement in their educational settings.||https://www.eventbrite.com/e/san-francisco-summer-workshops-2019-registration-55601645017|
