Use technology to spark creativity

One of the slides technology guru Steve Dembo presented during the Education Technology Luncheon on Sunday at NSBA’s Annual Conference in Denver showed school board candidacy lawn signs.

His observation: These are probably the last direct communication that the community ever gets from the school board members.

The next slide featured Lin-Manuel Miranda from the Broadway hit “Hamilton.” Out of his mouth was a word balloon: “Who tells your story?”

2016 Technology Innovation Showcase boosts up-and-coming technology solutions

Ann Lee Flynn

There once was a parrot, an armadillo, 75 board members, a zoo educator, and a class of third-graders in Ohio. This collection of random facts represents one of my most memorable moments associated with the off-site programming I host during the NSBA annual conference.

Lajvardi Recounts Underdog Robots Team Story

Arizona educator Fredi Lajvardi spoke at the Education Technology Luncheon at NSBA’s Annual Conference in Boston on Sunday, April 10.

Lajvardi’s high school robotics team was the inspiration for the movie, “Spare Parts.” It told the underdog story of the team from Carl Hayden Community High School in Phoenix that won first place in a collegiate underwater robotics competition, beating out elite engineering colleges such as MIT.

Transforming with technology

The documentary Most Likely to Succeed examines a California high school that has up-ended the traditional approach to education. Instead of relying on a teacher-centered model that has little changed in more than 100 years, High Tech High in San Diego has become a student-centered model. It emphasizes project-based learning, critical thinking, collaboration, and other skills better suited to a 21st century, information-based workforce.

Attendees at a Friday preconference session at NSBA’s annual conference in Boston got a viewing of the award-winning film.
