Your Name and Title:

Heidi Williams - STRETCh Instructor (Striving To Reach Every Talented Child)

School, Library, or Organization Name:

Kewaskum School District K-12 Intervention Coach

Co-Presenter Name(s):

Country from Which You Will Present:

United States - Wisconsin

Language in Which You Will Present:


Target Audience (such as primary school teachers, high school administrators, students, etc.):

K-8 teachers

Short Session Description (one line):

Learn how to incorporate student created video games into your curriculum.

Full Session Description (one paragraph minimum):

The topic will focus around energizing elementary and middle school students, particularly girls, around STRETCh’ing their math and computational thinking skills. While an excellent program for all students, Scratch is especially good at “Striving To Reach Every Talented Child” buy providing a high level, differentiated way to approach math problem solving. Once they learn these skills, they will continue to incorporate them into a variety of cross-curricular classes.

Collaboration on a global level occurs on a daily basis within the Scratch website. Students can download  projects from other students and Remix. The Remix philosophy is encouraged throughout the Scratch website. They also have a ScratchEd website that allows teachers from across the global to share resources and ideas! I would love to create connections and projects among teachers Globally that would allow students to collaborate and provide each other with feedback on their projects.,

Come see language arts verb games, a historical look at the Mayan Ball Game, a children’s sound book for science, and a tropical island presentation on Sri Lanka!

Can you please add more language to this proposal so that there is a clear tie into our mission?


Lucy Gray

If you would like your proposal to be considered for the 2012 Global Education conference, please make any changes by October 29th.


See if my changes meet your requirements. Thanks for allowing me to modify!
