iThink iNeed iPads in the Classroom by Steve Dembo
Sure, they're bright and shiny, but are they really learning devices? We'll take a close look at exactly how these technologies are being leveraged in the classroom and what the best apps are for educational purposes.

Checking for Understanding in a Digital World by Kyle Schutt
Save time and effort, avoid frustration, and motivate students by leveraging the power of formative assessment in your classroom. After all, research shows that when teachers understand formative assessment processes and students participate in them, BOTH achievement and motivation increase. In this session we'll learn how digital tools are blurring the lines between assessment and instruction by focusing on learning. We'll take a look at a suite of Discovery Education tools along with a host of other free web 2.0 resources to find out what your students know so you can teach them what they need.

Join us as we uncover creative ways Discovery Education media and web 2.0 applications like Jay Cut, Photo Peach, and Voice Thread can be harnessed by students to place facts in a meaningful context through the publishing of creative media-rich digital stories. Participants will learn how to create, manage, and assess digital storytelling experiences in their classroom.

DENcha Kucha

DENcha Kucha | DENSI2011 | Scoop.it
PechaKucha Night was devised in Tokyo in February 2003 as an event for young designers to meet, network, and show their work in public.
It has turned into a massive celebration, with events happening in hundreds of cities around the world, inspiring creatives worldwide. Drawing its name from the Japanese term for the sound of "chit chat", it rests on a presentation format that is based on a simple idea: 20 images x 20 seconds. It's a format that makes presentations concise, and keeps things moving at a rapid pace.
DENcha Kucha is DEN STARs' version. Here are their presentations. (You'll need to log in to DE to access them.)
