In January, Global Kids had the opportunity to give three presentations at the Jewish Day School Conference in Teaneck, New Jersey. We had a great time talking about our work with digital media, games and social networks. And apparently our participants got a lot out of it as well.
We just received the results of the post-conference evaluation, and got some nice feedback on our two sessions on "Games Based Learning 101" and "Social Media Production & Constructionist Learning." All of the participants said that they "learned something new" and all but one found our sessions to be "inspiring." Both presentations received a rating of 4.5 out of of a scale of 5!
Among the written comments about us:
- "Loved it! great new ideas even for a participant who is already very knowledgeable about social media."
- "Nice conversation around table shared good ideas."
