Where:
Room 308
Who:
Lucy Gray and Debbie Leslie
Affiliation: University of Chicago Center for Elementary Mathematics and Science Education
Conversational Focus/Audience:
Elementary School
Conversation Description:

During the summer of 2009, the University of Chicago Center for Elementary Mathematics and Science collaborated with Arlington Heights School District 25 (Illinois) teachers to model best practices in curriculum and instruction. Members of this team will share their experiences and will help educators discover ways of leveraging technology in classrooms to support hands-on, inquiry-based science learning. Come learn and discuss ways to promote observation, exploration, and reflection using engaging curriculum materials and a variety of technology tools. CEMSE is also interested in developing materials to reflect best practices in 21st Century teaching and learning. Help us by sharing your ideas on improving elementary science instruction through the use of wireless, mobile devices and Web 2.0 technologies.

Conversational Practice:
CEMSE is also interested in developing materials to reflect best practices in 21st Century teaching and learning. We would like to engage participants in the sharing of ideas related to improving elementary science instruction through the use of wireless, mobile devices and Web 2.0 technologies. During the course of this session, we hope to engage others in discussions regarding learning environments and science education. Ideas and suggestions will be documented in a public wiki.
