Help! My students are using technology to cheat on my assignments! With increased access to technology and a widespread student desire to "cut corners", many of us are left with a lengthy list of websites and apps that we are begging our technology department to block. But what if we could harness the power of those "student hacks" for good? In this session, participants will explore the role of teachers in the modern classroom and examine how commonly used "student hacks" can be used to engage students in deeper learning. Participants will engage in hands-on game-based learning experiences that model the key elements of 21st century learning, explore how tools commonly used by students to avoid learning tasks can be redesigned to promote deeper student learning, and collaborate with each other to develop a bank of 21st century hack-proof lesson ideas.
