This highly interactive session will “Do, Show, Tell, Review, and Ask.” Participants will engage in pattern recognition, craft problems prior to solving them, collaborate in real-time to promote social learning, and employ immediately usable techniques for the classroom.

The conference is free to all Saint Leo University education students, faculty, adjuncts, cooperating teachers, and school administrators. Elementary and middle school education majors receive professional development credit for graduation.

Borden’s presentation will focus on ways to create multi-nodal and multi-modal connections based on effective practices from education practitioners around the globe, which can be categorized as Education 3.0.

The conference will look at web assets and learning experiences that promote: social learning, transformative learning, game-based learning, and learning based on cognitive science. Multiple resources such as learning games, web tools, apps, and illustrations will be explored. Participants will be able to take this back to their classrooms and immediately use the information.
