Have fun playing with robots while getting what might be the easiest introduction to core computer programming skills. We'll cover commands, parameters, variables, how robots make decisions, what a While loop is, how robots nest (and it's not like birds!), boolean logic (oh jeez... no really, it's easy!) and creating functions. You will hardly even realize that you are learning programming and logic skills while watching your little QuestBots scoot around and work hard to complete the Quests you send to them. This is great for teachers just starting to teach Computer Programming as well as veterans looking for a new and fun way to teach core concepts.

Show what you know, with video!
Limited Capacity filling up

In the 21st century, video has become one of the main ways we communicate information to one another, and chances are good that if your students want to learn something new, one of the first places they will go is to YouTube to see if there is a video about it. In the classroom, video can be a powerful tool. Making videos allows students (or teachers) to be creative, to tell stories, to share their passions, to explore questions, and to communicate information in their own voice. In this session, we will discuss the various applications of video in the classroom, see examples of videos created by students, and explore a variety of tools that teachers and students can use to create and share their own videos from an iPad.

*Please bring a laptop, and an iPad with some/all of these apps installed: iMovie, Clips, Adobe Spark Video, Explain Everything Collaborative Whiteboard

Design Thinking and You! Becoming a Designer in Your Practice
Limited Capacity filling up

We will provide a real-time experience of using a design thinking protocol to address relevant problems of practice. Each participant will be guided through the stages of the design process as we work collaboratively to brainstorm and solve current problems. Participants will leave with having experienced an actual design protocol with real-life applications to their situation. Participants will begin by hearing from a representative "client" who is experiencing an innovation or problem in their classroom. These clients will represent "How might we" statements we've generated or perhaps those of their own accord. Designers will have the opportunity to brainstorm possible solutions and hear feedback from the client's perspective. Prototyping will allow the client to envision possible solutions for their classroom and enable designers to utilize feedback to improve upon initial designs.

Can your students handle the truth? Investigating Fake News
Limited Capacity seats available

With scores of websites and social media sources pretending to be something they are not, studies show our students are making poor decisions about credibility and reliability.

Teaching evaluation of information has never been so critical because the landscape has drastically changed. Learn new skills as you strap on your truth-teaching toolkit to help your students tackle the difficult terrain of websites, identifying "fake" sites, using social media and images to find out what is real, relevant and factual. Gain skills to discern bias, learn to be suspicious, find ways to sort evidence and even explore arguments and develop news literacy toolkits of your own.

We’ll explore tons of resources and techniques so you can power up and practice up your media literacy prowess aimed to nurture our students. We can help them to become information literate, responsible, critical and savvy citizens in this ever-changing world.

Join us for this fast-paced, thought-provoking workshop.

Show what you know, with video!
Limited Capacity filling up

In the 21st century, video has become one of the main ways we communicate information to one another, and chances are good that if your students want to learn something new, one of the first places they will go is to YouTube to see if there is a video about it. In the classroom, video can be a powerful tool. Making videos allows students (or teachers) to be creative, to tell stories, to share their passions, to explore questions, and to communicate information in their own voice. In this session, we will discuss the various applications of video in the classroom, see examples of videos created by students, and explore a variety of tools that teachers and students can use to create and share their own videos from an iPad.

*Please bring a laptop, and an iPad with some/all of these apps installed: iMovie, Clips, Adobe Spark Video, Explain Everything Collaborative Whiteboard

Participants will leave with having experienced an actual design protocol with real-life applications to their situation. Participants will begin by hearing from a representative "client" who is experiencing an innovation or problem in their classroom. These clients will represent "How might we" statements we've generated or perhaps those of their own accord. Designers will have the opportunity to brainstorm possible solutions and hear feedback from the client's perspective. Prototyping will allow the client to envision possible solutions for their classroom and enable designers to utilize feedback to improve upon initial designs.

Can your students handle the truth? Investigating Fake News
Limited Capacity seats available

With scores of websites and social media sources pretending to be something they are not, studies show our students are making poor decisions about credibility and reliability.

Teaching evaluation of information has never been so critical because the landscape has drastically changed. Learn new skills as you strap on your truth-teaching toolkit to help your students tackle the difficult terrain of websites, identifying "fake" sites, using social media and images to find out what is real, relevant and factual. Gain skills to discern bias, learn to be suspicious, find ways to sort evidence and even explore arguments and develop news literacy toolkits of your own. 

We’ll explore tons of resources and techniques so you can power up and practice up your media literacy prowess aimed to nurture our students. We can help them to become information literate, responsible, critical and savvy citizens in this ever-changing world.
