The VCSTEAMN Colloquium # 3 on SEARCH was a great success. Mike Vollmert, our Director of Technology, pinch hit for Keynote speaker Andrew Schwab who was ill, and used Andrew’s presentation to set the stage for an excellent evening. We examined SEARCH as a 21st century Literacy, we learned some new Google SEARCH skills, and then we collaborated on a scavenger hunt to find the answers to some SEARCH Challenges. Educators from across the county were in attendance and we thank all for being there. VCSTEAMN is an emerging entity that we hope grows far beyond the Rio School District to offer educators, community and business partners opportunities to establish Ventura County as a premiere location for STEAM education and employment.
STEAM is the integration and connections between Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics.
Keynote Speaker: Andrew Schwab, CTO, Berryessa Union School District
Andrew Schwab is an educator, IT professional and 1:1 evangelist. As a member of the CUE Board of Directors, a CETPA Certified CTO and a Google Certified Teacher, he is active in supporting and growing the edTech community. Andrew can be found on Twitter @anotherschwab and blogging at anotherschwab.com.
During the presentation, I mentioned Dan Russell’s challenge – determining the phone number of the office from which a picture was taken. Here’s the story of that challenge, including a link to how it can be done!
Session tools / Instructions
After our keynote talk, we will divide into five groups, each organized around one of the five STEAM areas (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Mathematics). Each group will get four search challenges, each related to a different type of search (Power Search, Scholar Search, Image Search, Archive Search). Do the searches in order – the challenge is for each group to complete as many of the searches as possible, and record on the results document both what they found and how they found it! Good luck!
