Thursday Keynote - Dan Meyer Capturing, Sharing, and Resolving Perplexity
Given the infinite buffet table of tools and technology to try out in the classroom, how do you decide what's worth your and your students' time? Without some kind of criteria guiding our selection, we'll spend years building up a dusty closet of tools that looked good, promised a lot, and didn't deliver. With that in mind, the presenter will describe "perplexity," one of the scarcest resources in the classroom, and how to pick tools and technology to maximize it.
