In line with CEESA mission and vision, this session will highlight the top educational innovation presentations from the First Learning InnovatED Pre-Conference held on March 12, 2014.
The “top” workshops (i.e. voted upon by the attendees of the pre-conference) will be selected for sharing during the main conference in any of the formats above, and CEESA may select them for future one-day webinars and workshops throughout the year.
Come learn with educators from the region share their expertise and personal learning from implementing innovations in their classrooms.
Joseph Barder is the current ICT Coordinator at the International School of Helsinki where he is engaged in both the technical and educational sides of implementing technology in a variety ways at school.
While he is considered “the tech guy” by many at the school, he maintains that he is as much a fan of whiteboards, scissors and construction paper as he is about laptops and tablets in the classroom, and that educational innovation truly comes from the way we use the technology we have available to us. He enjoys cheering on Seattle sports teams and the University of Michigan and any vacation where he can “unplug” and surf (waves, not the internet).
