SocialEdCon

SocialEdCon (formerly EduBloggerCon) is an "unconference" activity allowing educators to create and then hold a set of informal discussions. Started five years ago with a very small meeting at Shakey's Pizza in Palm Springs (and held for the last several years the day before CUE), SocialEdCon graduates this to our own room during the conference! Come join us early Thursday morning to plan the day, then feel free to come and go as you please, attending both traditional CUE sessions and our unconference ones! There are no formal presentations, just "conversations" that you or others facilitate. To lead a session, it is not expected that you prepare material but that you have a topic you want to open to discussion.

Thursday Keynote - Marco Torres
Quit, Complain, or Innovate

Are we utilizing all of the channels necessary and or available to make sure (we and) our students are learning? With the changing world and everything the changes are offering - is teaching and learning evolving? Marco will engage you in a conversation on how learning and the use of personalized multimedia are providing students with options to help build innovative experiences for student and teacher a like. Creativity is not just a cute word anymore-- its a differentiator at a time where ingenuity is a key component to  survive and excel during this economic funk.   As teachers, were left to ask this very essential question now: WILL YOU QUIT, WILL YOU CONTINUE TO COMPLAIN, or WILL YOU INNOVATE

How and Why to 'Flip Your Classroom'
Limited Capacity seats available

Are you still lecturing?  Students today expect access to "passive" content, like lectures, from anywhere at anytime.  And they need higher order thinking skills to be successful contributor to our information society.  The relevance of education today is in jeopardy when it's based on expecting students to show up at a particular place and time to listen to someone speak.  Flipping your classroom is an instructional model that shifts your lectures outside the classroom, accessible to students through mobile devices and computers.  This frees class time for debate, analysis, and critique.  In this workshop, I will share student survey results from my own community college art history "flipped classroom" experiment and reflect on how my experiences as a teacher were affected.
