    We believe
    In the lab, we are experimenting with ways to facilitate personalized learning and ownership. We believe learning and self-constructing is natural, but most people need to break out of habits focused on following rules. Experimentation means doing, and doing breeds mistakes. Risk of failure blinds many to their potential. We believe playing it safe today is a greater risk.

    Presentation Title: Students Redefine School
    Presentation Description: We believe that education is the vehicle to social change everyone craves. We believe that personalization is now possible in public school, because of the connections to people and info the web now allows. We believe that the process of learning how to learn, amped by the personalization digital equity allows is the new standard.
    In the lab, we are experimenting with ways to facilitate personalized learning and ownership.

    Suggestions for Sessions
    I would love to see us feature Chris Betcher's presentation "Ways of Working"--not only is the content fantastic but his process for creating the video is fascinating. I think people would love to hear him talk about his video and ideas for enriching student learning. Chris is in Sydney, Australia which is +11:00 so I think it would be 6:00am next day for him. (Peggy) - actually it's 11:00 AM when it is 8:00 pm here in Montreal - I guess they don't change the clocks as early as we do. For the April date it would be 10:00 am in Sydney. Is Chris in the classroom? I also loved his presentation.

    Presentation Title:Title : Project Based
    Presentation Description: Handheld computers are everywhere. From mobile phones to handheld games, it’s a very familiar sight to see people of all ages gazing into screens that they can hold. Schools are discovering that handhelds like iPod touch and iPad make great learning tools. In fact, handhelds can play a big part in Project Based Learning. Not only do projects motivate students because they use exciting handheld technology, but they also lend themselves to student voice and choice. Watch to be inspired to bring Project Based Learning into your classroom, learn strategies for creating effective Driving Questions, and see how an iOS handheld can play a role in the the planning, research/investigation, and presentation of projects.
