ICE Conference 2016, Veena Kaniyaly

During the last week of February, thirteen teachers from York were able to attend the ICE Conference.  The ICE Conference is an annual gathering for educators from across the state who want to share and learn more about how technology and innovative teaching can be used to help their students learn.  Throughout this week, teachers who attended the conference will be sharing a bit of what they learned at the conference.  

In this post, we'll be hearing from Veena Kaniyaly, a biology teacher:

"For common craft videos [and other types of student-created videos], one presenter shared a great outline for a storyboard which we will definitely be using in Biology.


The keynote speaker on Friday (Tom Murray) was awesome. I started following him on Twitter. One thing he talked about was learning spaces which I never gave that much importance to. If a learning space is appealing, kids would want to be there! (DUH! So simple). He also talked about learning equity and doing what we can to make sure students have access to internet. For York, I know several students that don't have access to Internet at home. What can we do as a school to better serve these underrepresented populations?"

If you want to learn more about these things, talk to Veena or an ITC!
