More About The Creative Pursuits Conference
How can 21st century technology tools such as interactive whiteboards, videoconferencing, digital cameras, and blogs enhance the classroom experience for today’s students? Teachers at The Langley School will share their cutting-edge, technology-rich curriculum with fellow educators during a new two-day technology conference this fall.
Held October 8-9 on Langley’s McLean, VA, campus, “Creative Pursuits: Integrating Technology into 21st
Century Classrooms” is an interactive conference for preschool through secondary school educators featuring
nearly 30 workshops led by Langley faculty members and outside experts, many of which will be held in the classroom with Langley students for a truly authentic learning experience. The conference also features a “tech
playground” with more than 20 stations which allow attendees to quickly browse various digital tools and a
Q&A with a panel of Langley faculty, alumni, and students.
Another highlight of the conference is the two keynote speakers headlining the start of each day. October 8
features Dr. Kathleen King – award-winning author, digital media/instructional technology expert, and co-host
of the 5 million listener podcast, “The Teachers’ Podcast” – who will discuss how to prepare teachers to function inside a brave new world filled with technological possibilities. On October 9, Don McNamee from Kristin School in Auckland, New Zealand, will share his expertise via live videoconference, discussing how new television tools such as Slingbox and Livestation can be put to good educational use.
