Shake It Up: Fun with the Magic 8 Ball of Learning!

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

It is certain that participants will have an illuminating time in this mind-bending, futures-oriented, action-packed deep dive. Let’s shake the magic 8-ball and see if we can create stories that redefine rigor as vigor (reply hazy, try again), consider the impact of our past learning experiences on our future (it is decidedly so), play in the beach ball challenge of what the holographic teacher will do for classroom design (concentrate and ask again), listen to student voices about electives becoming “core content” (signs point to yes), play a fortune-teller challenge of AI impacts on teaching and learning (without a doubt), jan-ken-pon if we can sunset standardized testing once and for all (outlook not so good), and build student and teacher voice inspired movie trailers that will leave us all determined to future-proof our students and ourselves so that we can all thrive in a changing and challenging world (without a doubt).
