NYSCATE/LHRIC Conference Includes Workshop on Educational Apps, STEAM and More

Teachers from across the region and around the state convened at the Lower Hudson Regional Information Center’s offices in Harrison to attend a series of action-packed sessions on everything from the latest cool educational apps that teachers can use with their students to the benefits of STEAM education.

Some of the apps demonstrated include Quiver, Elements 4D, Google Translate and Aurasma, an augmented reality application that can turn pages of a textbook into an enjoyable interactive experience for students.

Other sessions included computer science and coding, robotics, Google APPS for Education, as well as ways to implement challenge-based learning strategies for students. Here's a snippet of what participants came up with during one session:  video.m4v.
