thINK 21: Rethink the classroom for a future of remote, hybrid and in person digital coursework.
thINK21 offers three days of free, online professional learning to help K-20 teachers incorporate digital technologies and curriculum to inspire and engage all STEAM and creative arts learners.
The classroom continues its evolution from in person, to fully remote, to the hybrid approach of the future. Now, as many schools return to in person classrooms, the conversation turns to how to best leverage the benefits of online, hybrid experiences and technology in the classroom. Wacom, the global leader in digital ink, has gathered top education experts to share ideas and tips on using technology to generate creativity, deeper comprehension, student engagement, and meaningful collaboration.
Technology loomed large in most every version of the classroom this past year, for better or for worse. As more teachers and students return to the classroom, finding the right technology mix and tools will be critical to engaging every learner. But what does this mix look like?
With the thINK21 education virtual conference, Wacom has gathered educators from K12, Higher Education of a wide range of subjects with a focus on STEAM to share advice, ideas and tips on building the next version of their classroom, the incorporation of digital curriculum and using technology to empower teachers and students alike to innovate and excel.
