MassCUE 2014: Day Two

Day Two at MassCUE filled me with inspiration and new ideas including the following:

The morning Ted Talks inspired.

Later, I listened to Fable Vision staff and learned more about their products--products I want to try with greater detail as students create animated math models.

After that I learned about Arlington's incredible Techsperts program, a program that develops students' service to other students, leadership, tech skills, and self esteem.

Later I saw incredible student products including Framingham's Dunning School's fifth grade Zooburst digital pop up books project, Pentucket's STEM project, and Mashpee's increadible 2-D printer projects and STEAM program.

Finally, I learned about hands-on science with copper conductive tape and the creation of electronic pop-up books.

It will take a while for all the conversations, stories, and new ideas to take root, ideas that will positively impact my classroom this year and into the future.  Thanks MassCUE!
