1:1 NEXT is more than just technology in the classroom. It’s the next step in transforming schools to be more than direct instruction, more than passive learning. By looking beyond simple technology integration, LLI Memphis is focusing on the new pedagogies that are in demand by students, parents, and a changing world.
1:1 NEXT wants educators who accept the challenge of new teaching, willing to give students more voice, more choice, and more engaged learning in the classroom.
Please complete the submission form with information about your innovative 1:1 NEXT session topic.
We are seeking:
- Student centered learning models using 1:1 technology in the classroom
- Pedagogical practices for 1:1 including (but not limited to):
- Personalized learning
- Adaptive learning
- Inquiry learning
- Project based learning
- Social and emotional learning
All sessions are 1 hour with an optional 20 minute extension. Each session should understand that educators are learners too, so allow for differentiation and active learning strategies within the session. An ideal ratio would be 20% presentation, 60% active learning, and 20% reflection.
Proposals are due by April 15, 2017. Selected presenters will receive notification by May 1, 2017 and provided discounted registration rate for LLI 1:1 NEXT on July 17-18, 2017 in Memphis, TN.
