Information about the MLTI Summer Institute

How would you like the time this summer to do a deep dive into one topic to help you leverage your students’ MLTI devices in the classroom? How would you like the support of an expert in that topic and a cohort of colleagues with the same interest?

Then the MLTI Summer Institute is for you! http://maine.gov/doe/mlti/professional/institute/ 

The Institute will be held July 26-28, at Thomas College in Waterville, Maine. Special guests include Lucy Gray and Gary Stager. Lucy’s opening keynote is titled, “The Highly Connected Global Educator.” Gary will deliver the Wednesday evening keynote: Making, Love, and Learning. Both Lucy and Gary will be leading strands, as well.

Rather than a collection of breakout sessions, participants of the MLTI Summer Institute choose one strand to work within for the 3 days. Strands include:

  • Exploring Instructional Uses of YouTube – Lucy Gray
  • Do The Real Thing – Modern Meaningful Project-Based Learning – Gary Stager
  • Computational Thinking: A Cross-Curricular Approach – Ruben R. Puentedura
  • Using Technology Tools to Create Resources to Target Critical Mathematics Content and Practices – Pam Buffington and Peter Tierney-Fife
  • Teaching with GIS: Introduction & Practical Strategies for the 21st Century Classroom – Erin Towns
  • Introduction to App Development with Swift – Tim Hart
  • Multimedia Digital Storytelling – Ann Marie Quirion Hutton
  • Reaching All Learners – Lindsey Carnes
  • Reimagine 21st Century Teaching and Learning by Promoting Critical Thinking, Creativity, and Collaboration in the Classroom through Student Generated Content, Coding and Visual Media –  Jill Pierce
