Session Description

"Ground Zero"" Mosque controversy, soldier holiday care packages, and "No Off-task Skyping During Class" - what do they all have in common? Learn how 1 American history teacher is trying to motivate and challenge "at-risk" freshmen with technology and project-based learning as part of a new "Freshmen Innovations" program at Conestoga Valley High School. And they get to take their school laptops home as part of a new 1-to-1 initiative.

Student work will highlight the use of Google Docs, Photostory, Wikis, Moodle, Flipcams, and more.
