Clear Touch Round-Up 2017 ISTE Presenters

Dr. Edward Tse will give two presentations at ISTE 2017. Dr Tse has over a decade of experience in Educational Technology, most of it at SMART Technologies, where he served as both External Research Program Manager and Project Research Leader. Edward was one of the primary inventors of the first multi-touch table product for Education, the SMART Table. Currently, he works as the Director of Education Strategy for NUITEQ.

Making it Relevant—Telling a Story

In this presentation, Dr. Tse demonstrates how to make the best use of the devices that students already have at home. Discover how to use Lessons Online so that your students can take idle moments and turn them into opportunities for creativity and storytelling.

Simultaneous Personalized Learning

One size does not fit all in education, so MultiTeach® is designed to enable students to choose how they will personalize their own learning. Dr. Tse will show participants how to use Zones, which are crafted to enable a small group of learners to work with the apps and the content that best suits their learning style using either a vertical or tabletop display.

Formative Assessment

Good teachers know that there’s no need to wait until your entire class bombs a test to realize they are struggling with a concept. Asking questions along the way is a good habit to develop—and ensuring that all students in your class “get it” is important. In this session you will learn how to easily assess your students’ understanding using our DisplayNote software.

1-to-1 Instruction

Engaging all students in the instructional process is essential to a successful 1-to-1 classroom. Are you looking for a means to teach wirelessly and individualize student learning? Come join us in this session and learn how it is done.

Christine Petersen, a Chicago-land native, began her love for technology as an elementary school teacher working along Florida’s beautiful Emerald Coast. She quickly realized the importance of incorporating 21st Century skills and tools within the classroom when she was given an interactive board as a first year teacher. Christine became the tech guru at her school and was often sought out to help students and teachers use this new technology. When her husband received surprise orders to Okinawa, Japan, Christine found a chance to share her passion for teaching and technology at an international primary school. Currently, Christine is back along the Florida coast inspiring teachers and students to embrace technology within the classrooms as the Digital Learning Specialist for Walton County School District—and she hopes to bring the same kind of encouragement to this year’s ISTE attendees.
