"Inspiring Student Creativity with Media"
We are so excited to welcome back the always inspiring Wes Fryer as this week’s special guest presenter! In addition to highlighting examples of “WOW work” by students (borrowing a wonderful term from Seesaw professional development coordinator Angela Gadtke @MrsGadtke) he will also share a “digital magic trick” demo using the new iOS app by Microsoft, “Seeing AI.” Wes will be sharing tips and tools for how can we make learning in school more engaging, positively memorable, and transformatively empowering. His Google Slides, including links to all referenced student examples and other resources, will be available in the Livebinder for today's presentation.
