Rock Star Teachers Assemble @ USS Hornet for Top Gun Professional Development

The  CUE's ROCK STAR TEACHER SUMMER CAMP on-board the aircraft carrier USS Hornet Museum is sold out and the course is set for Awesome!  

With a focus on STEM & History themes makes this floating piece of living American History the ideal place for exploration, inquiry and discovery and once again I find myself on the bill with some of the EdTech World's 'Gods of Rock' including Jon Corippo, Mark Hall, Will Kimbley, Cheryl Morris, Sam Patterson, Pam Rickard, Catlin Tucker and John Stephens. 

First, understand what makes Rock Star so unique an opportunity for quality Professional Development...it's just simply awesome-er! There are Google Certified Teachers, Apple Distinguished Educators, and YouTube Star Teachers presenting.  My crewmates & I will be shredding with hands-on, make & take sessions across the STEM spectrum and we will be partying on a freakin' aircraft carrier!! 

With my sessions I will be aiming to help participants tell the many stories of the USS Hornet, it's war stories and ghost stories through the production of mini-docs and special photo stories that make  this unique ship speak of it's own past. I think the Hornet will give us the opportunity to explore Location-Based Digital Storytelling and in the process empower educators to make more of field trips, help them to see the history as stories closer to home and inspire them to make movies of them!


These days are filled with bleeding-edge Ed Tech and some of the smartest and most creative educators in the state. This year Rock Star will be held July 31st and August 1st.
