What is F3?
Foundations for the Future (F3) is a collaboration of Georgia Tech researchers working with government and industry support to ensure universal K-12 technology access and effective use in Georgia and beyond.
The focus of Foundations for the Future is to help accelerate the application of telecommunications technology for interconnecting K-12 schools for collaborative learning, remote access to educational facilities (zoos, museums, libraries), and Internet-based resources. F3 leverages existing investments and expertise to promote powerful, effective, and feasible alternatives that improve educational practice through innovative applications of technology to support learning.
Are you attending an Explorers Guild workshop?
The Georgia Tech Research Institute’s STEM program (STEM@GTRI), Center for Education Integrating Science, Mathematics, and Computing (CEISMC),and the Georgia Tech Institute for People and Technology (IPaT) know that Georgia educators are using technology in amazing ways to inspire and engage students. One of the most frequent comments we hear is that it is difficult for educators to know what's working for other educators because there is so much going on, not everyone can afford to attend conferences and access to technology is inconsistent across the state.
The third annual Educator Showcase will honor teachers and showcase their projects. There is no better way to get inspired than through a fellow colleague! What better way to meet other passionate educators and share your experiences? STEM@GTRI, CEISMC, and IPaT are hosting the 2015 Educator Showcase during the May Explorers Guild meeting. The showcase will include a panel discussion along with a poster session. There will be an opportunity to meet fellow educators, enter into lively discussion about teaching and learning, and expand your professional network. If you are interested in applying for the poster session, all you need to do is follow the guidelines below. Posters will be chosen by a selection committee of Georgia Tech faculty. Chosen posters will be printed for participants so that after the event they can take the posters back to their school to continue highlighting the good work taking place there! This event helps support the STEM@GTRI, CEISMC, and IPaT mission to help acquire and leverage instructional technology resources for Georgia’s classrooms, schools, and districts, share best practices, and establish a community of learners. We look forward to your submissions and can't wait to see you all at the event in May!
The deadline for poster abstract submission is March 6, 2015.
