How I Went Paperless
In the day and age of limited copies and very little money to purchase supplies, we all have to be creative and selective in our use of these resources. Utilizing Google Classroom, my iPad Pro, and the Goodnotes App, I was able to go almost 100% paperless this past school year. From online reading journals to digital guided reading and data notebooks, you can make your classroom (and life) more organized, keep all the information you need at your fingertips, and drastically cut down the number of copies/reams of paper you use. Come let me change your teaching life and go paperless with me!

Getting the Most Out of Technology
This presentation is designed to give teachers the skills required to seamlessly incorporate technology into the classroom. Teachers will be given a brief overview of basic technology concepts. This session will equip teachers with resources and strategies that will enable them to give students hands-on experience with the infusion of technology into their academic journeys. This session is NOT solely about technology tools and apps. However, it is about using technology to help facilitate learning in the classroom, gain grading time back, and help our students become digitally aware in the 21st century. This course will be most beneficial to teachers at 1:1 middle schools, but all are welcome.

Know Your Students Better
Knowing students’ interests, strengths, and weaknesses help teachers adjust learning experiences for their students. Formative assessment involves the teacher collecting information about what students know, don’t know, and want to learn. It can play a part in checking for understanding, surveying background knowledge, reviewing content, and getting a general pulse of the classroom. Let’s explore and compare free feedback and formative assessment tools like GoFormative, Recap, and Quizizz. Let's also talk about what to do with the gathered information.

Getting the Most Out of Technology
This presentation is designed to give teachers the skills required to seamlessly incorporate technology into the classroom. Teachers will be given a brief overview of basic technology concepts. This session will equip teachers with resources and strategies that will enable them to give students hands-on experience with the infusion of technology into their academic journeys. This session is NOT solely about technology tools and apps. However, it is about using technology to help facilitate learning in the classroom, gain grading time back, and help our students become digitally aware in the 21st century. This course will be most beneficial to teachers at 1:1 middle schools, but all are welcome.

Just the Facts
For students to be successful in mathematics, it's paramount that students can add, subtract, multiply and divide with ease and accuracy. Traditional methods of teaching fluency in the classroom have involved flash cards, mad minutes and parents working with students who need extra help. Using a fact fluency game based system, students can experience individualized instruction, targeted practice while having fun in a game based environment. While the students are enjoying this experience, teachers have data captures that can be used to refine instruction, inform parents of student progress and open up more rigorous math instruction.

Dive into New Depths of Knowledge with Technology
In this session, you will learn how to use technology to increase the rigor and complexity of student tasks in exciting and meaningful ways. Rigor is a huge buzzword in education. How can we increase the rigor in our classrooms without overwhelming students and increasing our own workload? We will use the SAMR and DoK models as our guide in designing higher-order thinking activities that utilize technology. Students in your classroom will have the opportunity to expand their knowledge, extend their thinking, and redefine their tasks. The technology resources presented will include content creation apps and websites along with G Suite tools to help you manage it all. You are encouraged to bring your own devices to explore and interact.

Creating Products to Show and Share Learning
Nowadays students have a variety of ways to show what they know and to express themselves. Let’s take a look at some of the hottest websites and apps for showing, explaining, and retelling. In fact, these tools can turn students into teachers and are great for sharing their answers to project-based driving questions. Tony Vincent shares examples and demonstrations of apps for making audio recordings, editing movies, creating comics, recording digital puppet shows, narrating drawings, crafting digital books, and more. You’ll also learn about ways to assess projects and the importance of reflection. This presentation is great for those already familiar with project based learning (PBL).
