Waterfront Tech Series Ep: 9 is back 9/25 @The Johns Hopkins University - Carey Business School 8-10:30 a.m. with "EdTech: K 12". We are taking a look at the rise of Tech in the K 12 space, successes, failures, and where we need to go from here for our students, and future work force development to close the #STEM gaps.
For this year's WFTech Series Ep: 9 "EdTech K 12" we are bringing together the experts in #tech and the Pre K-12 #education space to hear how each panelist is working to close the #STEM skill set gap in our classrooms.
Some of the micro topics we will be looking at, specifically, are the importance of cloud computing in today's Pre-K-12 environment, what tech trends are they excited about and why? With 97% Of Kids Playing Video Games, How Does An Institution Use Game-Based Learning In the Classroom? With social media playing such a large role in the lives of Pre-K-12 students, what best practices are employed to ensure students navigate social media and technology in positive, high character ways?
