Teaching and Learning in the Classroom of the Future Presentation: University of Buffalo 2/17/2015

Teaching and Learning in the Classroom of the Future, part of UB’s 2014-2015 Digital Challenges Series, is the first half of a two-day program focusing on instructional innovation.

 What will the classroom experience be in just five, ten or fifteen years? What technological expectations will our students have?

 Our speakers will tackle these and other questions surrounding teaching and learning in the not-so-distant future. I had the privilege of participating in a discussion with expert educators from local elementary, middle, and high schools which showcased the latest technologies employed in today’s classrooms.

My presentation can be found here.

The Vine Basket

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a beautiful book. I really felt for 14 year old Mehrigul. Her dreams, her strength, her determination. A great middle school and up read.
