Conference reaches beyond the apps
The 2015 Digital Learning Conference brought teachers, media specialists, instructional coaches and school administrators together with graduate students and professors at the University of Georgia College of Education for two days of tech-driven workshops and presentations.
This year's event included presentations that showed how new and innovative technologies are making their way into today's classrooms, with presentations covering apps for the classroom, building your own program and using video in innovative ways. A presentation by Sara Kajder introduced innovative ways to create a multimedia presentation — ironically, she admitted, using Powerpoint. Another presentation by Rick Willard showed the "flipped" classroom model of instruction. And two sessions focused on robotics as a key part of the curriculum.
Held at the Georgia Center for Continuing Education, the event also included networking sessions and wrapped up with a door prize giveaway.
