Students

Students working The Forum will bring together high school students from across Missouri; large and small, rural and urban. As design participants, students will be fully-immersed in a creative setting, presented with a challenge, spend two days collaborating as a team and talking with innovative designers and educationalists from around the country as they design their prototype solution. On Tuesday, each team will present their solution to all conference attendees in the closing conference session. The Missouri Future of Learning Forum will encourage inquiry and invention to broaden technology-driven, digital learning in Missouri.

If you are creative, innovative, looking to participate in a once-in-a-lifetime event that will enable you to meet other students, establish relationships with business leaders, open doors for the future of innovation in Missouri education, then don’t miss the Missouri Future of Learning Forum.

Students will:

  • Apply for a chance to participate in the forum in August 2011
  • Participate in a brief pre‐program session in late September 2011
  • Be greeted with an inspiring opening session surrounded by a multiday conference full of educators and educational technologies
  • Spend two full days collaborating with mentors, leaders and their fellow teammates on their assigned challenge
  • Present their findings to all MITC 2011 attendees
  • Find opportunities to implement solutions and continue learning environment design discussions well beyond the Forum
