March 31, 2008
CyArk would like to invite K-12 teachers in joining us for a free, one day workshop as we discuss ways to use CyArk's 3-D data and media in the classroom. The workshop will be held Saturday, April 12, 2008 at the Walnut Creek Marriott Hotel. The workshop will include lunch and ready to use lesson plans.

The CyArk Education Outreach Program has developed ways that 3-D data and media from archaeology sites can be incorporated into classroom lesson plans to meet California State Standards. These lesson plans can be used to teach a variety of subjects, including history, social studies, math and science. CyArk's activities incorporate technology in ways that are accessible to classroom teachers and combine hands-on materials to create an engaging learning experience for students. We will highlight lesson plans that use digital storytelling, Google maps, and 3-D laser scan data from archaeological sites. Teacher are invited to share best practices for using multimedia with students and provide input on materials created by CyArk. If you have used CyArk in the classroom or would like to learn ways to use 3-D images in student activities, we would love to have you attend this workshop!
