As the world changes and is moving more rapidly, it is hard to keep up with what are the most powerful ways to incorporate technology into your classroom. Hack the Classroom is an exciting, online, live event designed to show you what’s possible and ignite new ideas. This year, we’ll be live from ISTE bringing you the latest tools designed to empower your students to achieve more.

By attending Hack the Classroom online event, you will:

  • Learn from teachers by taking a glimpse into their classrooms to see how new tools are creating new possibilities
  • Engage, interact, and pose questions with speakers, product team members, and other educators
  • Gain access to professional development resources and tools to get started

On the agenda

Opening keynote – Computer Algorithms Help Solve Real-World Problems

Coding is an example of how we can use computational thinking skills effectively to write algorithms. Yet we must not limit this to solely computer scientists. Every student should have a basic understanding of how technology works and be given an opportunity to contribute to the algorithms that create the software of tomorrow. As educators, we can create a global culture of innovation by blending technology with our imaginations, to maximize the impact of STEM skills.

Lisa (@LisaAnneFloyd) is passionate about getting kids coding. As an educator and thought-leader in STEAM education, she is able to share her passion for creative coding and digital making. She is completing her graduate degree in mathematics education. Lisa has co-authored articles published in academic journal publications across North America. She is a Computational Thinking in Math and Science Education instructor at Western University’s Faculty of Education, for which she has received an undergraduate teaching award.

Meet Teams

On May 2, Anthony Newbold, principal at Bear Creek Middle School in Fairburn, Georgia joined us to introduce new classroom experiences as part of Microsoft Teams. These new features will make it the digital hub for teachers and students.

On June 27th, as part of Hack the Classroom, you will have a chance to take a deeper dive with us on what these classroom experiences will look like and to ask questions of school leaders and educators who are using these tools today.
