This year’s conference, New Paradigm Shifts in Education, offers 40 sessions designed to enhance your K-12 classroom. Blended learning, flipped classrooms and one-to-one initiatives are just a few of the current instructional paradigms facing teachers today. As academic standards and technology evolve, educators must consider new ways of framing curriculum and engaging students. Keynote speaker Mike Montague will guide you through reexamining the idea of “comfort zones”— where they come from and how to grow beyond them. ‘Catalyst Courtney‘ opens the conference with an exciting science demonstration. In addition to sessions like Google Geo Tools and Evaluating Mobile Apps for Classroom Use sessions addressing social issues will also be offered: Tabari A. Coleman from the Anti-Defamation League returns this year with a session on Hate Comes Home, an interactive movie.
Registration is limited and free to KCPT K-12 Media Services member districts. For more information on K-12 Media Services, contact KCPT Education Director Gary Brock at (816) 398-4321.
