Global Education Conference Reflection

It was wonderful to have students in my community giving international input on how the invention of the  STEAM engine continues to engages all of us to think critically, create, and contribute ideas.  The global education conference was a fantastic free experience that connected a small rural community of learners in Dublin to the international community of passionate educators interested in connecting classrooms to improve the learning experience of others.

Did you miss out?  No worries, all programs were recorded and can be accessed at the Global Education Conference Website.   I encourage you to listen, connect and learn from people interested in  challenging schools to improve.

Dublin 4th Grade GT students researched the invention of the STEAM and considered how this invention has shaped life in our rural community and globally.  Each student created a slide a short presentation to share with the international community.  Dublin Elementary students visited their local museums to find a local artifact or inventor that was a direct spin off from the invention of the STEAM engine.  Students used animoto to create a video celebrating STEAM that will be placed in our community museum.
