Building 2 Learn. Learning 2 Build.

I attended an all day unconference on Saturday, April 6th at RIT MAGIC Center. Here is the summary from the event page:

We can describe many K-12 students as tech consumers. Their tech interests push new product development and their tech capabilities raise the bar on tomorrow’s learning tools . Savvy educators among us are effectively reaching this segment of tech consumers by making them “creators” of the very technology they are also consuming in their classrooms. We encourage you to “join” us at Innovation Hall on the RIT campus on April 5, 2014 for a unique “unconference”, Learning 2 Build – Building 2 Learn offered by educators for educators.

This is an opportunity for to gather, share, learn, and discuss new ideas and new approaches to engage students in their own learning, while fostering innovation and critical thinking in their learning process. Learning 2 Build – Building 2 Learn participants are encouraged to offer mini sessions to demonstrate their own examples or participate by attending sessions offered by RIT and K-12 educators sharing and discussing their real world examples. Some sessions that are to be offered in person, will also be simulcast online. The keynote will begin at 9am and simultaneously sessions will be offered throughout until 4pm.

There was a nice article with video published on the Time Warner Cable site.
