    Edcamp: How To Teach When Every Student Has a Device

    How do I teach when every student has a device? Join us for our edCamp-unconference. Edcamp is a fun, laid-back opportunity to network and learn with other educators. It is completely participant driven; all participants are welcome to pitch ideas, facilitate a session, and connect with others to build their professional network. What should I prepare? This is your conference, bring with you a topic related to the theme that you would like to discuss with other educators! What should you expect in each session? In each session you should expect an unstructured conversation where educators share best practices, challenges and passions related to the overarching theme. Everyone at an edcamp is encouraged to practice the law of two feet. The law of two feet says that if you become uninterested at any point, you are encouraged to leave and join another session. In an edcamp you are also invited to take breaks at any time, with the idea that it is sometimes in the breaks that the ‘A-ha' moments arrive. If you are not familiar with edCamp format, check out this video! https://youtu.be/I3ownFNREVQ

    Software Spotlight: Explore Learning – Gizmos

    Gizmos are online simulations for math and science topics, grades 3-12. When students engage with simulations, they use their spatial reasoning to learn fundamental concepts, and are encouraged to explore and experiment and build conceptual understanding. Gizmos lend themselves to group work, independent work, and whole class instruction. This session will provide a fresh look at the Gizmos library of content and correlations to textbooks and standards. We'll also brainstorm ways to effectively incorporate Gizmos into daily classroom routines.

    Integrating PBL, STEAM, and SEL Into The Daily Curriculum

    How do we integrate PBL, STEAM, and SEL into our curriculum to enhance teaching and learning? The driving force behind this pedagogy and educational approach is not in the design and it's not about which technology we use and it definitely is NOT about "One more thing.” The driving force for success is twofold: first, it is in the empathy or the relationship the students make with the curriculum idea and the real world connection. Second, it is in the collaboration on so many levels that make this integration work. It is a journey.

    In this workshop, we will examine the journey from start to finish and create a PBL/STEAM/SEL unit that YOU can integrate into YOUR curriculum that will motivate ALL learners. The focus of this workshop will be on:

    • Identifying learning standards in a curriculum area to begin this journey.
    • Pinpointing goals for the unit.
    • Awareness of the three P's and how to effectively use them during the process: PERSONALITY, PASSION and PERSEVERANCE.
    • Designing a community of motivated learners.
    • Acquiring the tools and resources needed for your project.
    • Developing a "Setting Them Free" mindset and ways to use this mindset for optimum success.
    • Understanding the flexibility in a fluid PBL unit and how to manage it.
    • How to manage frustration at all levels while moving the project forward. -Learning that teachers and students do not need to be "On the same page.”

      This workshop is for K-12 teachers and administrators. During these workshops, the participants will learn how to design a PBL/STEAM/SEL unit addressing their curriculum and standards, so that they can use their design unit in their classroom. Participants will learn how to successfully navigate roadblocks while on this journey. Please bring a curriculum unit that you are or will be working on this year.
