Commercial Tablets in K-12 

K-12 educators and technology personnel face challenges supporting consumer focused tablets.  The EltePad 900 is the first tablet designed specifically for commercial use.  K-12 technology professionals now have a true alternative to consider in the tablet category.  With the EitePad 900, you have a machine that runs X86 architecture and Windows 8 Professional, which will allow for legacy, K-12 applications to be loaded.  The touch screen, with optional pen, makes it the perfect device for test taking.  In addition, with HP's well thought out ecosystem for the ElitePad, you can get a full scale notebook computer which could be nice for teachers and administrators

Learning to Play to Learn with Mobile Apps 

Research provides compelling evidence that integrating games into educational experiences can increase student learning, enhance development of critical thinking and communication skills, and increase motivation. Yet while we recognize how play can benefit our students, as educators we often overlook the value it holds for ourselves! We need to remember how to play so we are not intimidated by using new technologies with our students. In this session, participants will have an opportunity to explore and experiment with a variety of mobile apps that can support learning both in and outside the classroom. Bring your own device and come play!

Flipping the Social Studies Classroom with SAS(R) Curriculum Pathways(R) 

The ''flip'' happens when content instruction becomes homework and classwork more dynamic. Award-winning and no-cost resources from SAS Curriculum Pathways can help this happen. We provide content and skill-based instruction across the curricula--on topics like the Watergate scandal, how to analyze a document, or the OPEC oil embargo--that students can experience on the flipside. Interactive checkpoints, a budget simulation game, and an online atlas tool are just some of the dynamic activities that promote active learning on both sides of the flipped classroom.
