I am super excited to share my experience at the HAIS 2015 Schools of the Future Conference. This was my first conference as a participant and it turned out so well! I don't think things could have gone any smoother and my students from Island Pacific Academy did an amazing job!
Let me tell you a little about it!
About our project:
Title: It's Not About The Destination, It's The Journey!
Through the integration of physical art and technology see first hand how the process becomes the journey. Students will demonstrate the creation of an on-sight mural which, through technology help to create a time-lapse video. Visit with the students and teacher and see how learning accelerates and is internalized when your school community isn't focused just on the grades.
The annual Schools of the Future Conference is the largest professional development gathering of public and private K-12 educators in Hawaii and brings together teachers and administrators from Hawaii’s public, private, charter and parochial schools as they focus on how to best transform our existing schools and create new learning environments for the 21st Century.
This collaborative event is presented by the Hawaii Association of Independent Schools (HAIS), the Hawaii Department of Education (DOE) and the Hawaii Community Foundation in partnership with the Pillars of Peace Fund of the Hawai‘i Community Foundation and the Hawaii Society for Technology in Education to highlight the best practices that are taking place in our learning environments today and being planned for those of tomorrow.
Here is the final timelapse video:
These pictures don't do justice to how many people were actually there, over 1,500 conference attendees! The largest attendance yet! The girls did an amazing job painting and thinking on their feet to answer everyone's questions! Fantastic job ladies!
Big Mahalo to Elizabeth, Rylyne and Jess!
