    GEMS World Academy Chicago: Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

    Wednesday, Oct 15, 2014 9:00 - 11:30 AM @ GEMS World Academy Chicago
    This event is over! Please check the 2021 schedule.
    LAB - Labs bring together small groups for an exclusive, first-hand look into what happens behind the scenes at some of the most innovative companies, community leaders and institutions around Chicago.

    Go back to school for the day with the school standing at the frontier of hands-on, experiential learning and discover how GEMS World Academy (GWA) is changing the way students learn through an innovative mobile learning platform. In a field exploration led by GWA's Director of Academic Technology and Innovation Thomas Steele-Maley, you'll use iPads to gain a new perspective on the world around you, recording sound and video, drawing and taking observational notes on your surroundings.  You'll see how GWA is extending education far beyond the confines of a classroom and creating experiences that actively connect our community to the world. *iPads will be provided by GEMS World Academy for the duration of the Lab.
