Want to make memories that last a lifetime with your grandchild or a special child in your life? The only requirements are: 1. You must be a K-State alum who wants to share your love of K-State; and 2. The child must be between the ages of 8-12.
If so, join us for the College of Education’s Grandparents University, or GPU, Aug. 2-4. Participants will stay in the dorms and dine in the Derby Food Complex, just like college students. This year, there are seven engaging activities to choose from at the Marianna Kistler Beach Museum of Art and the colleges of architecture, planning and design, engineering, human ecology, and education.
GPU participants will receive a true Wildcat welcome as members of the The Pride, K-State’s Marching band – the number one marching band in the nation – greet participants.
More information and registration details are available on the College of Education’s Website, or by contacting Teara Lander at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Registration is open for a three-day, hands-on workshop designed to inspire and equip educators to facilitate student media projects using iPads.
The iPad Media Camp is being held Aug. 3-5 from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. in Bluemont Hall. The sessions are being co-lead by eBooks author Wesley Fryer and Cyndi Danner-Kuhn, instructor of curriculum and instruction.
Kuhn said the workshop will focus on creating narrated slideshows and screencasts, creating and safely sharing “Quick Edit” videos, and the final day will focus on interactive writing and creating multimedia eBooks.
Nearly 200 K-20 educators attended the second annual iCamp in Bluemont Hall, looking to expand the use of iPads in their classrooms.
Cyndi Danner-Kuhn, instructor of curriculum and instruction, developed the innovative and engaging workshop. The experience took educators through an immersive experience to deepen their understanding of how students create, connect, share and collaborate with iPads.
Wesley Fryer was this year’s featured guest. He is an author, STEM elementary teacher, digital learning consultant, digital storyteller, and change agent.
