Don’t wait for FCQs to flip your class! Qualtrics is an internet based data-gathering tool that CU Boulder recommends. Teachers can, for example, use Qualtrics to survey their students.

Technology and Language Arts
Bryan Steele, President, Lingua Galaxiae
Mr. Steele will discuss an on-line game that combines Semiotics and Systems Theory (LinguaGalaxiae.com). Because learning should be fun and connected to the real world, the game includes an element of science fiction along with each step directly tied to current events related to energy and the environment. Not only is the game directed at individual players, it can also be used as a platform for remediating incoming freshmen in need of help with thinking and writing skills.
