Discover How Digital STEM is the Secret to Student Success

Date & Time
Tuesday, March 14, 2023 - 2:20 PM PST  
Platinum 7-8  
Take a deeper dive into how digital STEM is the secret to getting learners not only engaged in Math and STEM, but help them feel empowered to succeed. From creating complex math formulas directly within the tool and having them read aloud, to taking handwritten equations and making them digital in an instant - STEM is more accessible than ever, thanks to Equatio. Throughout the session, Product Manager, Louis Shanafelt will demonstrate not only how to use the tool and its many features, but encourage attendees to participate and get hands-on within the tool, putting the collaboration features to the test! Louis is thrilled to be joined by Patrice Wheeler from CSUN where she will discuss how digital and accessible STEM curriculum that is created by Equatio is used for remediation of content by her office and how they are collaborating with the Universal Design Center (UDC) to introduce Equatio to faculty and staff. This session is suitable from K-12 through Higher Ed. There’s something for everyone to learn from this STEM discovery session, to help all learners succeed.
