Minds on Media

A session at Bring IT, Together [ECOO & OASBO]

Wednesday 23rd October, 2013

8:30am to 3:30pm (EST)

What is ‘Minds On Media’?
Imagine a room full of teachers who are experts in playing, learning and teaching with technology. What could you learn from them?

That is up to you! Visit one of the ten centres or visit them all! You might be an absolute beginner or a whiz with technology - but this is about using new technologies with students through a 'tinkering' lens. You choose your ‘entry point’. Build your own plan for the day, be led by one of our facilitators or pedagogistas or have no plan! Learn what you need to know to play deeply and thoughtfully with your students this year!

Tinkering
When we speak of 'tinkering', we are blending two constructs:

  • physical tinkering and construction of artefacts
  • cognitive tinkering - with ideas
