Upcoming Workshops


Questioning: The Most Important “Technology” of All

Wednesday, June 12, 2019 Keystone, Colorado
8:00 – 10:00 am
Crestone 4

Technology is prevalent in everything we do: from learning to taking tests, from selecting books to reading books, from watching videos to chatting with friends and strangers. We have entered the age of “push” technology, where our interests and view points are predicted, and our screens are populated with only those items. This presents a very “you” focused world view-point. How can we bring balance back to our students: tomorrow’s decision makers? By helping them learn to ask good questions. Come experience as a learner the Question Formulation Technique (QFT) as we explore this issue in depth. Create a plan to incorporate this strategy with your students to help them learn to ask questions, seek answers, and journey back to being learners.

Crestone 3

With Stevan Kalmon & Becky Russell

The 2016 ISTE Standards propose that students, as constructors of knowledge, have the ability to “critically curate a variety of resources using digital tools to construct knowledge, produce creative artifacts and make meaningful learning experiences for themselves and others.” But what, exactly, does it mean to curate? And, how is critical curation different from collecting information and conventional student research projects? How can we design meaningful curation experiences that will fuel learner passion and build learning communities? Participants in this interactive workshop will develop and apply the mindset of a curator in designing a curation project for their students and/or communities.
