We?re thrilled to introduce you to the Siemens We Can Change the World Challenge, the nation?s premier sustainability competition that gives students the inspiration and free tools to make a difference. Using the fundamental of project-based scientific inquiry, K-12 students are given the tools to identify an ecological problem, research it and determine how their green solution can be replicated by other communities that face similar challenges. Join us to learn about how to get actively involved, make a difference, and possibly even win a prize package as more than $300,000 in prizes including scholarships, savings bonds, once-in-a-lifetime adventure trips, assemblies with Discovery Channel personalities and much more are at stake.

Make your classroom walls expand! Mobile phones, iPads, and tablets have the ability to create and share learning both in the classroom and in the extended online anywhere/anytime universe. In this webinar, Hall Davidson will show educators how to build interactive projects and assessments that tap and expand student knowledge with apps, QR codes, social media sites, and more. Attendees will learn how free resources, media libraries, and the web can work mobile?even for students without smart phones. You don?t want to miss this webinar!
