The 21st Century Classroom: #TechHasNoWalls’

Tan-Tar-A Resort, Osage Beach

It’s not that technology is new or that revolutionizing the classroom to meet 21st century classrooms is anything unheard of…BUT how in the world do you really embrace that concept and still meet the need for content knowledge?

Matt Miller, teacher, author, blogger and presenter from West Central Indiana will join us at the SMCAA Fall Conference to share how he infuses technology and creative thinking ideas into innovative teaching strategies for the classroom.

As he has outlined in his book Ditch That Textbook: Free Your Teaching and Revolutionize Your Classroom , Matt will share what it takes to have a learning environment that is:

  • Different - from what students see daily in traditional classrooms
  • Innovative - drawing on new ideas or modifying others’ ideas
  • Tech-laden - with the use of digital sites, tools, and devices
  • Creative - tapping into students’ original ideas, as well as teachers’ ideas
  • Hands-On - encouraging students to make and try things on their own

As a teacher, author, blogger and presenter from West Central Indiana, Matt has been recognized as a Google Certified Innovator; a Bammy! Top to Watch in 2016; and winner of the WTHI-TV Golden Apple Award. In addition, Onalytica named him one of the top 10 influencers in educational technology and eLearning worldwide. Matt has presented to thousands of teachers at dozens of workshops on a number of topics related to educational technology, world language instruction and more. He combines a conversational, engaging speaking style with loads of resources, leaving teachers equipped and inspired to move forward.

Engaging students with purposeful technology-rich lessons and activities, the importance of the SAMR model that helps educators infuse technology into teaching and learning, as well as the latest updates on the new assessments aligned to the Missouri Learning Standards are the learning targets for this conference.  You won’t want your district’s educators to miss this great opportunity to be inspired by the sharing of numerous tried and true Best Practices for 21st Century Learners!!!
