Dan Meyer kicked off the Annual CUE Conference in Palm Springs, California with this engaging talk on perplexity. This being his (and his grandma's) first CUE Conference, she declared "You're never to old to jump on the CUE train, Dan..."
Description: Given the infinite buffet table of tools and technology to try out in the classroom, how do you decide what's worth your and your students' time? Without some kind of criteria guiding our selection, we'll spend years building up a dusty closet of tools that looked good, promised a lot, and didn't deliver. With that in mind, Dan Meyer describes "perplexity," one of the scarcest resources in the classroom, and how to pick tools and technology to maximize it.
