Transforming Student Learning at ICE

A group of Barrington 220 Instructional Digital Age Learning (iDAL) coaches and administrators presented to a standing-room-only audience at the Illinois Computing Educators (ICE) Conference 2016 last week in St. Charles, Illinois. The session, Transforming Student Learning through the Use of Technology, was presented in a modified Ignite Talk format.

The Ignite format is a fast-paced, information-packed, and fun presentation style that can also be used in the classroom. In the “classic” Ignite format, each presenter gets 20 slides, each slide is on-screen for exactly 15 seconds, and the slides auto-advance; thus, the overall presentation is exactly 5 minutes in length. Of course, the format can be customized by changing the number of slides, duration of slides, and other factors. Another possible mod might include creating a structured content list or rubric.

For the Barrington 220 Ignite-talk-style presentation, presenters showed how technology is used to create digital portfolios, blend math talk with problem solving, increase parent communication through social media, reflect and collaborate with colleagues, and more! Many Barrington 220 presenters shared their Twitter handles during their talks so audience members could easily connect with them:
Several resources were also shared throughout the presentation, including the following:
Congratulations to all Barrington 220 Ignite presenters at #ICE16!
