Mark your calendars for the JK-8 Tech Fest on May 8!
The Tech Fest will include exciting presentations by Technology professionals and Mandell students. Patti Summers, author of Toddlers on Technology and former Head of Mandell's Parenting program, will be talking about young children and their relationship to technology. We will have an expert panel joining via video call for parents to learn about blended environments. This panel includes the following experts:
- Eric Sheninger, High School Principal and author of Digital Leadership. Click here to learn more about Eric Sheninger.
- Karen Blumberg, Technology Integrator and Leader at The School at Columbia University.
- Greg Klein, Director of Blended Learning at Rogers Foundation. Mr. Klein works with Oakland, CA district schools to personalize learning through blended models.
Lower School students will be presenting a variety of technology projects. Upper School students will be leading workshops on their learning platforms (Google Drive, Schoology and other learning apps) In addition to student presentations, there will be workshops for
parents and students including working with special effects and creating
movies with the software program iMovie.
You do not want to miss the fantastic series of documentaries created by
the Lower School teachers and specialists. Each teacher has documented a
curriculum unit with students learning and engaged in lessons and
activities in the classroom. Narrative shorts created by Upper School students
will be on display as well. The Prep Point student news group will be live-casting the entire event via Google Hangout.
