Updated 2/20/2015: An audio recording of my keynote is available as a YouTube video.

These are my slides for my opening keynote at the February 16, 2015, “Little Apple Tech Fest” in Manhattan, Kansas, for teachers in USD 383 Manhattan/Ogden Schools. The keynote description is:

Media products created by students can provide a clearer, deeper and more helpful “window” into their minds. Teachers need to regularly invite students to “show what they know with media.” When students create and share content based on the curriculum, their learning can be “stickier” and more powerful. Blended learning classrooms allow teachers to better differentiate instruction to meet student needs. In this dynamic keynote, we will explore both the why and the how of “showing what you know with media.” This will include examples of engaging student media products teachers can invite students to create tomorrow!

Inspired and encouraged by my wife, Shelly Fryer, I’m using Kahoot for the first time in a keynote presentation to:

  1. engage my audience
  2. showcase examples of student-created media projects
  3. encourage teachers to think about the benefits and value of having students “showing what they know with media”

I created a YouTube video playlist of the four student media projects I’m highlighting in my #latf15 Kahoot interactive quiz game.

Links to resources from the three breakout sessions I’ll be sharing later in the day Monday are available on my presentations / handouts wiki. They are:

Follow the Twitter hashtag #latf15 throughout the day and afterward this week to learn with us in “The Little Apple!”
