Make Learning Real

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Learning must be real, kids need to see the why's and how's of where their learning relates to the real world. Incorporating real-world concepts, scenarios and collaborative working environments are now possible across many areas. Because of the combination of realistic simulations, simple apps, single sign-on websites and accessible media and printing technologies: authentic learning experiences are easier than ever. I want to guide you through the way we are crossing the curriculum and incorporating multiple subjects in tasks that engage students to go deeper. I will share apps, websites, spreadsheets, activities, concept maps and assessments that are already successfully working within our classrooms. We use cloud-based learning, 1 to 1 Chromebooks, Minecraft, CAD, Email correspondence and Financial planning. Primary school never looked so professional.

This session is suitable for: Primary
