1130 am to Noon MT Profession Development
We will be reporting on our Who Do You Love, Educationally Speaking Poll
Come and get your educational theory and theorist love!

Noon to 1 pm
We will be doing an encore presentation from Educause on Coding, Gaming, IoT, and Wearables: New Student Success Technologies, or Chocolate-Covered Broccoli?

Even though Extreme found the results of audience poll discouraging – we will tell you why you shouldn’t be!

Join us for a spirited discussion of four current technologies. Share your perspective on whether educationally these technologies are like pouring chocolate over broccoli or if they can improve student outcomes by strategically leveraging them. Come caffeinated and opinionated, and be ready to dive in and share with peers and colleagues.

We took care of Skorpyon and the Chronomatic Anomaly. Gratz and great job to our raiders. We'll go for Trilliax, if we get it down then it's Star Augur Etraeus and if we have time possibly going back for Odyn.

We'll talk before we start about cake-eating and sterilizing priorities.

And of course the Laser please watch videos and read up! The icy veins write-up seems a bit skimpy so please check dungeon journal too.
