REFLECTING ON TechConX 2017


Teachers from across India met at Canadian International School, Bangalore to participate in the second TechConX. On Day 1, there were 3 hour workshops followed by classroom visits where participants witnessed the iPads in the hands of teachers and students.  On Day 2, we hosted 175 participants through 5 workshops and ended the day with a motivational presentation by Andrew Jewell of iTeach, Scotland.

 

Teachers worked; to create movies using a green screen, to take Google Virtual Field trips, and to create iTunesU courses that encouraged communication and collaboration. Teachers attending these sessions were given a choice of 7 workshops to attend. There was an interesting learning experience available for Early Years teachers and IB teachers. Throughout the day, numerous opportunities were given to teachers to connect them with ideas from each other’s classrooms. Information sharing was the key to this successful conference. Initial survey results of participants provided the following statistics:
