Live Curious, Go Beyond 2016


It's February 19-20, 2016. A year has passed since we ran our first school wide conference. The second edition of Live Curious, Go Beyond was a special one. This time around we invited teachers from schools around the region to present and to attend. The outcome was overwhelmingly positive. 

Once again, our group of digital teachers stepped up to the challenge and were heavily involved with the organization of the conference, not to mention their interest in running a session or two.

Educators had multiple opportunities to learn about innovations in education as well as to build relationships to develop their professional learning networks. Imagine being able to learn about drones in education; the use of Google Cardboard; what is Design Thinking; the experience of a Breakout Edu session, how to use Twitter like a pro, and so much more!

For the full details, visit the Live Curious, Go Beyond 2016 website. You can also look up the hashtags #asfmtech, #livecurious2016 for the highlights of the conference.






Each of the sessions addressed one of the following strands.


  • True Innovation
  • Blended Learning
  • STEM
  • Design Thinking
  • Maker Edu
  • Beyond





Results:
  • Schools - 17
  • Presenters - 55
  • Attendees - 320
  • Sessions - 102
  • Playgrounds - 1

Mark your calendars for next year's Live Curious, Go Beyond 2017 Technology and Innovation in Education Conference. February 17-18, 2017

Cheers!
