October Meeting & Halloween Party 10/23

This month’s Golden Apple ISU meeting will be part meeting, part Halloween party! On Thursday, October 23rd, all Gapples at ISU are invited to DeGarmo 208 at 7pm for pumpkin decorating and a Halloween costume contest. All of those who attend will receive a Dom Belmonte “Domfather” or Jim Sorensen “Fun-O-Meter” tee-shirt, and the winner of the costume contest will receive a special prize. As usual, we will also discuss news, events, and opportunities for Gapples at ISU and ask members for their input on what the RSO will do in the remainder of fall semester 2014.

Teaching in the 21st Century Events

This semester, ISU’s College of Education is holding their annual T21 Speaker Series and Teaching in the 21st Century Conference. These are excellent resources on educational technologies for all future teachers at ISU. Gapples should consider attending these professional development programs.

T21 Speaker Series

Each semester, the T21 Speaker Series brings new guest speakers into Studio TEaCH (DeGarmo 307) to present on topics relating to technology and how it can be used to enhance classroom learning. At each presentation, a different topic will be presented. Previous topics include technology for the visually impaired, how to use social media to build your professional profile, and how to integrate iPads into an early childhood classroom.
