Gamification
This interactive course will help educators better meet the components in Domain 3 in the Framework for Effective Teaching for student engagement. Collaborative inquiry and gamification will be a focus as participants experience the concept of inquiry through game play, adapting content to classroom curriculum and Common Core State Standards, researching game strategy, and collaboration in group problem-­‐solving. Standard of Mathematical Practice will be an additional focus with transfer and application of the standards during game play. Designing and developing classroom games with student feedback and application will be the culminating assignment.

 Technology A La Carte`
Spend the week with Joe exploring all the new (and old!) cool tools available for integrating technology into your classroom. You'll have time to collaborate and network with colleagues and complete assignments that are individualized to meet your needs regardless of your expertise or grade level/content area.
