Vita-Learn is excited to announce that the Innovation Lounge is returning to Dynamic Landscapes this spring. Located in the Champlain Room on the Champlain College campus, the Lounge will feature hands-on, interactive displays and demonstrations of innovative technologies and programs.
A few examples include:
Using VR in the classroom to enhance learning by students — Visitors to the session can expect to see examples of how VR has been successfully used in our schools, and will be able to jump into VR to experience it for themselves. Come and become a famous person in history for a few moments (Benjamin Franklin, Abraham Lincoln, Harriet Tubman and Sonia Sotomayor being but a few of the choices), or try sculpting or even try a bit of VR fitness.
Hands-On with MILK Crates — MILK stands for Mobile Innovation Learning Kits and is a district program that BRSU started to share innovative tools between the schools. At the moment the kit includes Edison Robots, a Cricut, GoPro & DJI cameras, microphones and BreakoutEdu boxes. In this workshop people can come and explore these tools hands-on. I will talk about the program and help spark some ideas to start one for your school.
The Intersection of STEAM and Literacy — Stop by the innovation lounge to try out literacy based STEAM projects! Are you interested in tips to integrate STEAM into everyday activities? Would you like some ready to go activities? Stop by to grab some resources or stay awhile and try out a sampling of science experiments, engineering challenges and making.
