We’ve the opportunity to turn our classrooms and impact areas into studios where students can transform whimsical ideas into purposeful action and meaningful products. In this session, participants will explore how edtech tools can support and heighten creative endeavors from sketchnoting to soundtracking, blackout poetry to digital color palettes, paper circuits to LEGO bricks, leading to deeper learning and understanding of content area learning. Imagination is the only prerequisite.
