MooseTech Improv and Technology Integration

Twitter! Yay!

Today will be about serious things.  If you laugh, you might ruin everything.

Please don’t do that.

We spent a lot of time preparing this session about making things up as you go.

Thank you.

Warm Up

 

Mirrors & Compliments:

Everyone gets into a circle facing each other.  One person gets in the middle of the circle and freezes in a position.  Another person joins them and either Mirrors his or her freeze or Compliments the freeze.  Participants take turns tapping in and taking over one of the spots and scenes develop from some of the freezes.

Symphony:

Identify one word that describes how you feel about tech integration in your classroom, school or district. Say that word whenever the leader points to you.  Feel the flow.

3 Things:  

“Hey Jeff!  Three terrible names for iPad apps!”

“PointyTime”

“One!”

“Robitussin Fun Space”

“Two!”

“Microsoft Encarta!”

“Three!  Dan, Three Things you Wish You Could Do with an Android Phone!”

And so on . .

Name & Noise

Count of by 1s & 2s.

1s: Say Your Name & Make a noise you make when your tech tools work right!

2s: Say Your Name & Make a noise you make when your tech tools fail! Hard!

Follow the pattern!  Drop the name! Now just noises!

For each of the above, listen to the amazing conversation as we determine how we can use these techniques with students & colleagues & board members.  (Board members?!?  Yes! Why not!?!? .. um.. because they are scary and control the money?  Touche.)

Now, we learn about A-C-T Improv Philosophy.  Where does such learning live?  ACT Here!

Let’s Get into Some Playing & Laughing to Build Our Capacity in ACT & Tech Integration! (Yes, Dan, that’s why we came to the session.  Dude, seriously, who IS this guy?)
