Teacher Pioneers: Adventures with Media, Pedagogy, and Play in K-16 Learning
Caro Williams-Pierce, Alainya Kavaloski, Deborah Fields, David Ng, Kip Glazer, Lucas Cook, Sean Duncan, Seann Dikkers, Steve Isaacs, Trent Hergenrader, Jeremiah Holden

This symposium brings together a myriad of K-16 teachers and authors who have designed, built, and implemented digital media or game-based learning in their classrooms. Speaker experiences range from elementary school to teacher professional development, from science to wilderness teaching, from behavioral management to e-textiles, and many things in between! This session will focus on supporting small group sessions with these pioneers, and discussions of the practical aspects of using such technologies in the messy, surprising, and delightful context of classrooms, schools, and other learning environments.
