Keynote Address: Meaningful Learning that Increases Student Motivation: Teachers Matter
Gifted students achieve and underachieve for a variety of reasons. In this session, we will discuss factors that students and research suggest influence gifted students’ achievement. We will share possible solutions for increasing student motivation and subsequent achievement.
Workshop: Research is More Than Googling: Using Technology to Conduct Authentic Research
When students think of research, they usually think about looking something up on the Internet and writing a report. However, a more exciting type of research exists that involves collecting and analyzing data. Students of all ages love to pose questions and search for answers. We’ll discuss hands-on activities that demonstrate different types of research. We’ll also share how to use existing or free software to better understand data and make research more meaningful for your students.
