There were so many things to see and do at ISTE 2016! A few sessions that I wanted to attend overlapped, but luckily there are some great resources shared out on the presenters’ webpages. Here are some of the resources from sessions I missed:
by Alice Keeler helps students (and teachers!) learn to use Minecraft in interesting ways while completing challenges along the way.
by Lucas Gillepsie has lots of great ways to use games as an educational tool.
Microsoft in Education
has a lot of information about their different platforms and some tips for the new Minecraft Education Edition.
Google has released a new chrome extension: Google Cast
which works with Google Classroom. It allows teachers and students to share screens wirelessly. So if I have my screen up on the projector, I can switch over to a stfudent’s screen and project the exciting work they are doing on their own screen. This could be a great app for the Upper Division as we move over to Google Classroom!
And there were a lot of “poster presentations” as well with some exciting ideas that are being incorporated at other schools:
Connect Locally, Connect Globally?
showcases a school that shares the history that makes their town unique. This looks like a great way for students to dig deeper into their shared heritage.
One presenter, Dr. Randy Russell, has a site
full of great scientific games, simulations, and modeling sites to bring excitement into the science lab!
