The use of iPads, robotics, gaming and other applications in the modern classroom will be on view at the School of Education's Third Annual Teacher Technology Showcase set for Thursday, Dec. 5 from 5-7 p.m. in The Cooperage. The event is open to the public.
"Local educators will share their use of innovative technologies to support student learning," says Professor Jessica Parker at a showcase that is "fast becoming the premiere educational technology event in the North Bay."
The goal of the Showcase is to highlight how educators are creating better learning environments for students through the integration of technology.
"Last year, there were 150 people attendance and 26 presentations from both pre and in-service educators, she said. "This year, we expect 250 local educators, administrators, and community members to attend to see 40 presentations from pre- and in-service teachers and administrators."
This year's Showcase is focused on student learning and will be packed with presentations, a hands-on Maker Space, and a Technology Sandbox to try out the latest tech tools for the classroom.
There will also be food and giveaways throughout the evening. Partners for this year's event include Sonoma County Office of Education (SCOE) and KQED.
