6:15 p.m. TECH EXPO
This event is free and open to the public.
The EdTech@RIC Expo is designed to appeal to preservice and inservice teachers alike, as well as technology coordinators and administrators. Attendees will have the opportunity to engage with educators from around the state, who will be showcasing some of the technology they are currently using in actual K-12 classrooms - across subject areas - including art and music. The emphasis of the Expo is not just on the technology itself - presenters will be talking about the whys, the whens, the hows, and the how often. Attendees will be able to touch and try out various types of technology and personally engage with the presenters (including student presenters enrolled in K-12 classrooms) to get their specific questions answered. Professor Charlie McLaughlin and RIC’s Mobile Makerspace will also be there.
Keynote speaker, Paula Dillon, assistant superintendent for Barrington Public Schools, will address tools and resources that help guide the selection of classroom technologies and aligned instructional strategies, including CIPA and COPA guidelines, the National Student Privacy Pledge, and Common Sense Media. Dillon earned her doctorate in curriculum, teaching and learning from Northeastern University, and holds a master’s in educational leadership and a master’s in special education from Providence College.
