Monday Keynote:

AAIM to be a Library and Ed Tech Trooper -Session Site

All audiences MON. 9:00-10:00 -- Salon B & C

Our world is not changing back. In the tumult of today's technical and pedagogical innovation, it's time to take action! As EdTech Troopers our language has shifted to connect, collaborate, create, construct, make, flip, share, advocate and empower to move forward into the universe of rigorous instruction. This session will make sense of the sensational and decode the Babel of buzzwords. You needn’t choose to adopt and change everything in your tech tool bag - but picking just one or two new things to try, can transform your professional practice. Choosing to be an EdTech Trooper and a change agent within education isn't easy - but it's ultimately rewarding for administrators, teachers, librarians, and students! Doing the Kessel run in less than 12 parsecs, is optional.

This multimedia presentation will feature meme’s, Jimmy Fallon and a singing Stephen Colbert, MYST3000, Godzilla, maybe some games, and lots of examples of how to easily implement a fun mobile strategy for your Ed Tech teaching practice.
