75 - Thinking on the Boundaries: Integrating Curriculum, Technology, and Creativity

Friday, Nov 10
12:00 PM – 1:00 PM

How can we design curriculum that leads to both deep learning and creative productivity? The Thinking on the Boundaries project is an example of how teachers can integrate the content of their curriculum with technology and creative pedagogy to foster engaged learning, authentic outcomes, and conceptual understandings. Teachers and curriculum designers learn how to use the Thinking on the Boundaries format for planning and teaching, and multiple examples are presented to demonstrate how high ability students can master content and disciplinary innovation across all grade levels of the curriculum.
