Last year’s InnovaTOUR

Hello everyone,

Here we are, just a little over a week away from the TLT Symposium, and our excitement is really building! This week, we will tell you about the details for the Friday, March 15 InnovaTOUR, the mobile app Guidebook, and the TLT Experience Room.

InnovaTOUR finalized
First, we are please to let you know that the schedule for the InnovaTOUR, to be held Friday March 15 from 2:00-4:30 p.m., has been finalized. The program for this walking tour of some of University Park’s most innovative learning spaces is as follows:

2:00 p.m. – Meet at the IST Building’s Bridge (Reeces Cafe area)
2:15 p.m. – Tour the Learning Factory
3:00 p.m. – Leave Learning Factory
3:15 p.m. – Tour Knowledge Commons (w/ Ryan Wetzel)
3:45 p.m. – Leave Knowledge Commons
4:00 p.m. – Tour Krause Innovation Studio (w/ Mike Rook)
4:30 p.m. – Tour Ends
4:45 p.m. – Casual conversations at Whiskers

So we can give these places an idea of what to expect as far as numbers, if you are interested in taking the InnovaTOUR please sign up at http://bit.ly/12xdION. An early look at weather forecasts offers a picture that is a far cry from last year’s warmth – temperatures in the upper 30s. So, if you decide to go dress warm as we will be walking to each location.

Let Guidebook be Your Symposium Mobile Guide
We also want to tell you about the mobile app we will be using for the event this year. Guidebook, which is available now for both iOS and Android devices, allows you to view and customize the schedule on your mobile device. More on Guidebook in an email/Yammer post next week!

The TLT Experience Room
The room formerly known as The Hands-On Room is now known as the TLT Experience Room. In the TLT Experience Room, attendees can try out some of the interesting ed tech applications that have been discussed in some of the sessions including AR Tools, the Art 10 Course Manager, EconU, Dartfish video, iPads, clickers, and digital badges.

That’s all for this week. We will send you several updates next week as we get ever closer March 16’s Symposium.
