Opening Keynote
An appeal to Parks and other agencies serving as stewards of public resources to recognize and embrace their role as rich learning content producers and providers for students everywhere. An examination of what is in it for kids, and what ultimately is in it for public agencies wanting to increase awareness with youth and adults. While the presentation is specifically designed to support InterpTech topics of interest, the integrated game of "name that park" and the general improvisation and informal humor of the presenter is "on the house".

Love thy Nature Film Screening

Narrated by Liam Neeson, Love Thy Nature points to how deeply we’ve lost touch with nature – and takes viewers on a cinematic journey through the beauty and intimacy of our relationship with the natural world.

Neeson is the voice of “Sapiens” (our collective humankind) who, in the past few hundred years, has come to believe that we have transcended nature. Yet, experts uncover how a new era of nature-connection might soon be dawning: “Biomimicry” scientists look to the natural world for the most brilliant inventions, social ecologists unveil how nature restores our communities, and doctors are finding new ways in which nature heals the body, mind, and brain.

The winner of 27 awards, Love Thy Nature soothes our urban angst with the dazzling spectacles of our world, while showing that a renewed connection with nature is key both to our personal health and the health of our planet. And Sapiens’ journey reveals how a relationship with nature ignites a sense of meaning and wonder so profound that it touches us at the very core of what it means to be human.

Stories From the Blue
Why do you care about the ocean? What brings you to its shores or compels you to explore beneath the waves? What drives you to want to protect our public lands and waters for future generations? It's never been more important to connect members of the public to natural and cultural resource -- but cutting through the noise on the internet is a distinct and serious challenge. Through the videos and articles of "Stories from the Blue," NOAA's Office of National Marine Sanctuaries has been telling the stories of the people behind our National Marine Sanctuary System on the web and via social media. We've been showcasing volunteers, teachers, researchers, and more. In this presentation we'll explain how we put these videos and interviews together, how we use these pieces to inspire other sanctuary supporters, and how you can use a similar interpretive format to connect digital audiences to your real-world resources.

Meeting The Needs of Today's Diverse Learners
Did you know that Generation Z students’ learning needs are completely different than those of any generation before them? So you may be asking how does my interpreter approach and instructional delivery need to change to meet the needs of the Gen Z student population and their 8 second attention span? Come and discover in this closing session how today’s students learn and enhance your facilitation of meaningful, fun and innovative educational opportunities for the iGeneration. Stacey Pasquel will connect the principles of innovative educational technology use, found in the nationally/internationally recognized ISTE Standards, with the foundations of interpretation by showcasing strategies and examples that can capture Gen Z's learning attention through:
 
  • Understanding their diverse learning styles and modalities,
  • Infusing interpreter activities with mobile learning techniques,
  • Designing choice and voice activities to personalize learning,
  • Leveraging technology to enhance adventures in nature, and
  • Collaborating with others to broaden their perspectives and enrich their learning.
