This working examples session will include the following:

Working Examples: Come Play with Us!
WEx (www.workingexamples.org) is an online community for people who are reimagining education. We like to think of WEx as a sandbox; it’s a community based around building and improving ideas about technology and learning (e.g. games for learning), sharing work-in-progress and meeting new people and perspectives. The workshop will start with an introduction to the site, including an explanation of “working examples” and a quick run through of the site. Next, we’ll touch on some of the core ideas behind the site (collaboration, exploring ideas, and iteration) through a group activity. We’ll wrap up with a discussion about the activity and becoming an integral player in the WEx community. See our working example here!

Director, Working Examples
I head up Working Examples, an online community built for the re-imaginers of education – people who are using technology to change the future of education. (You know who you are.) The site brings people together to explore ideas, to make things and to impact each other. | | I'm passionate about collaboration and how it affects innovation. There are still big gaps between what's being made and what's being used in classrooms. I believe we... Read More →
