What to Expect at an Eduro Learning Institute

Strand Information

Strand 1: Teaching in a Connected Classroom

We know that students have access to many more devices than the school provides. How can we leverage those multiple devices (laptops, tablets, smartphones, wearables) in the classroom to create a dynamic and student-centered learning experience? What are the practicalities of having so many varied devices in one classroom? How can we be empowered ourselves for this environment that is constantly changing? How can we tap into student enthusiasm to build authentic learning opportunities?

Learning Outcomes

In this session participants will:

  • uncover the potential of multiple (often student-owned) devices in the classroom;
  • develop strategies to help students effectively manage multiple devices in the classroom;
  • build an understanding of digital citizenship that empowers students to make good choices;
  • explore ways to expand the classroom by connecting with others around the world;
  • discover a variety of online tools that make the most of the devices students have;
  • (re)design a task or assessment to leverage the devices used in their classroom.

Strand 2: Empowering Student Creators

Students have access to constantly evolving platforms for sharing their ideas. How can we leverage these platforms to empower our students’ authentic voices? What experiences are relevant to today’s students? How can we bring social learning into our classrooms, and help students build an authentic audience? Knowing that students are comfortable in this changing learning landscape, how can we empower them as leaders in our schools?

Learning Outcomes

  • build an understanding of how technology integration relates to thinking skills;
  • uncover the prime conditions for enabling authentic student creativity;
