GIMKIT a twist on the online quiz game
Gimkit is an online formative assessment tool that was created by students who were bored with the traditional online quiz game.  This game allows teachers and students to create personalized "kits" that align directly with instruction.  During actual game play, students strive to collect the most money while buying upgrades that require some strategy such as question insurance, double ups and pie a neighbor.  Students can play individually, as teams and class against class.   Students have also used this program to demonstrated mastery by creating their own kits for each other at the end of a unit.  Join us to learn some innovate ways to incorporate this program into your classroom curriculum.  Participants will be able to create their own kit and have ideas to incorporate this program into their various curriculum.

Hashtag: I Teach Math
"Social media has a starring role in our lives and in the lives of our students today. From Instagram to Tumblr, and Twitter to Facebook, millions of digital thoughts flow through the internet every day.  Many teachers have discovered that social media can create an environment for them to connect, question, wonder, read, share and support other educators. So my question is this: Why are teachers asking Google for a ""Slope Activity"", ""Surface Area Project,""  or ""_______<---(insert any math topic) Assignment""? Why are we not asking the thousands of math teachers who are teaching the same content that we are?   If you are someone who has been curious about using Twitter to grow your Professional Learning Network or engage in a Professional Learning Community, now is the time!
