Gradebook, Portfolio, Parent Access, Oh MY: Showbie is the Heart of your Paperless Classroom
Anyone who has struggled with using email, dropbox or Google Drive to facilitate workflow in their classroom will love what Showbie has to offer. With Showbie, you can easily create classes and distribute work to all students (without requiring email addresses - hooray!). You can collect work from a variety of compatible apps (including Explain Everything and Book Creator) and file types (such as large video and audio files). Plus, you can easily review student work by providing feedback and a grade using tools such as text and voice notes, comments, and our brand new Showbie Gradebook. Once assignments are completed and graded, they can be added to a student's portfolio so they can be shown to parents - all without taking up any storage space on iPad!

Showbie makes going paperless easy. With students being able to annotate directly in the app, there are no lost papers or excuses for forgotten homework. Students and teachers can also discuss their work privately in the app, and the digital portfolio allows you to add assignments from a variety of multimedia so that students can track their academic progress, even as they advance to other grades! Any educator who wants to keep their sanity will love how Showbie streamlines classroom workflow with their students.

Come and see Elizabeth share her Showbie classroom, and brag about how she is nearly entirely paperless, and has a record for zero missing assignments! Download the app ahead of the session and take the role of a student to engage with us through the app!

iLab: Bringing 3D Design and Printing into Every Classroom
Limited Capacity seats available

Suitable for all elementary – middle school teachers, instructional technology and curriculum teams and leaders

President Obama has said that 3D printing has the potential to revolutionize the way we make almost everything, referring to the rapidly changing world of technology and work we now live in.

How will our students thrive in this unpredictable and ever-changing world?

What skills, dispositions and knowledge will they need?

In this interactive workshop, the team from Makers Empire will explore practical ways for students to develop and master: design thinking; collaborative skills and capabilities to excel in 3D environments.

We will show how these essential 21st century skills can be embedded across all curriculum areas to facilitate authentic learning experiences and tangible learning outcomes.

Participants in this workshop will be introduced to our easy to use tools (for iPad and other devices) which enable students as young as 4 to begin designing in 3D within seconds and for teachers to easily incorporate 3D design and printing into their lessons without the need for complex design and technology skills.
