In this presentation, I propose several key questions and new findings about the power of wonder (can we measure it? can we grow it? how does it translate to learning?) and how it can be a renewable resource which gives students the ability to support social-emotional and self-directed learning. I will explore a new tool called the Wonderment that can bring this power into the classroom, helping students cultivate the imaginative and creative world with www.thewonderment.com – Cassia Nielsen

Written by Tricia Jackson on . Posted in #UCET17

The Gap Can Be Bridged. I have seen it. In education we have many different and unique professionals. One problem we face is the rate of change, especially in technology. Programs and devices are common place in our lives. But the gap is increasing between those who embrace technology and those that are hesitant. I have run up against this problem for years with educators that I work with. One teacher's journey. – Suzanne Harris
