August 4, 2014 Print Your World! 3D Printer Introduction
3D printing is changing the world as we know it. Come play with us and learn what it can do for you in your classroom. Participants will have hands-on experience with 3D software to design their own project and then print it out. Receive lesson plans for students in grades K-12, resources, printer and supply recommendations, and more from an educator knowledgeable about the 3D printing world. The hands-on, discovery learning workshop will be held in Austin at the TCEA office on August 4. Registration is just $125 for members and $165 for non-members. Discounted hotel rooms are available. Register today to save your spot and bring your classroom into the 3D world.

Rethinking 1:1 – A focus on curriculum delivery, not just a device
It’s easy to get caught up in the device when thinking about a one-to-one program. But is it really the device itself that’s going to increase student achievement and enhance learning? Learn how you can bring the focus back to what really matters: the curriculum that’s delivered via the device. We’ll discuss how to make your content available on any student device for access 24/7; plus, you’ll hear from one Texas district that’s already doing just this.
The “Integrated & Engaged” grant is designed so that teachers and students can experiment with the use of mobile technology. The recipient will receive KUNO student Android tablets and the CurriculumLoft device/app/digital content management solution. Engaging Solutions is providing the tablets and software to the recipient of the grant. The total amount of the grant is $16,500. TCEA and Engaging Solutions accepted applications for this grant between November 1st and November 30th. After reviewing the grant applications, the grant was awarded to Emily Camp from Palestine ISD.
Emily teaches third grade at Southside Elementary in PISD. She plans on using the eleven Kuno Android tablets and the CurriculumLoft Cloud digital content management system to engage her students in digital activities to support their efforts in reading and writing instruction. Emily plans on having her students create videos, play educational games, record classroom plays related to the curriculum, and read digital books.
TCEA is grateful to our partner, Engaging Solutions, for making this grant possible for Emily and her students.
