Students Showcase Learning at MassCUE Tech Conference

At the MassCUE (Massachusetts Computer Using Educators) Annual Tech Conference in October 2016, students demonstrated how they are engaged in real-world problem solving through global collaborative projects. Their projects incorporate technology to address civic-engagement and social-justice issues and highlight the role of student voice in global learning.

Projects included:

·Students provided peer recommendations by creating book trailers using iMovie. The library teacher provides guidelines, the students choose books that matter to them, and students use technology to create movie-quality book trailers to get their classmates excited about books.

·Students in the Student Innovation Team course at Shrewsbury High School presented digital citizenship videos they created to educate the high school community on topics such as distraction and self-regulation.

·Using Scratch programming and interactive demonstrations, 3rd- and 4th-grade students showed how they use innovative thinking to create content-rich Scratch presentations in math, science, and language arts.
