  6. Which of the following is more tortorous?
  7. Our First Question: How can educators encourage Student Choice in how they represent content or demonstrate learning
  8. Our Second Question: Videos, pictures, GIFs, blogs, posts, memes, and more online content are being consumed by people, including our students, at a record pace.  The creators of that content are problem solvers, creative thinkers, and entrepreneurial minds, so how can we get our students to be less consumers of content, and become the creators of content
