Sessions For Room 4

9:15-10:00 Session 1 - Kortney Avila, Digital Literature Circles and Podcasts

    • My session would cover literature circles and how to bring them into the digital age. I use tools such as google classroom, google forms, slides, QR codes and voice recording apps such as Garage Band and Voice Recorder. I have been piloting this with my current group of fifth graders, and it has encouraged even my most reluctant readers! My target audience will be ELAR teachers.

10:15-11:00 Session 2 - Tana Williamson, Stop the Insanity!

    • This session is for all grade levels and can easily be tweaked for each, especially with the 1:1 technology ratio Cooper has. “STOP THE INSANITY” is all about giving teachers some practical and effective tools to address issues in the classroom. This will allow teachers to differentiate instruction for ALL in the classroom, freeing up more time to give attention to those who need it most (specifically with our special education kiddos in the general education settings). In addition, we will give you some practical approaches and solutions to help general education teachers collect data on their Sped Students goals and objectives without the headache, and with minimal impact on your lesson flow. This can be a time consuming endeavor for both general education teachers and the special education teachers to get appropriate data, but it doesn't have to be this way. All you need is a little knowledge and ideas to get you going your own, a little front end loading, and you too can “STOP THE INSANITY”!!!! Come to this class if trying to address all the sped needs in your classrooms makes you want to pull your hair out. *** We have already been working on items for this for our campus for next year and we can tweak it any way if you'd like.

12:00-1:10 Lunch in the Commons -

1:15-2:00 Session 3- Clay Kennedy, Math, Science, Art and Numbers!

    • This is a lesson process to transpose a smaller photograph image to a larger surface for the purposes of creating an "artwork" to color/paint in a finished form. Here, I have learned to use the iPad and the Numbers program to do this well-known technique in a way that still teaches proportion, measurement, scale, etc.;but eliminates the need for a printed photograph and some of the other painstaking steps, and ultimately produce a remarkably successful painting. In class we render (trace) an original photo, superimpose it onto a grid system on the iPad, and later, transfer (draw) it onto a separate scaled surface to be painted or otherwise treated decoratively as a finished work of art.

2:15-3:00 Session 4- Donna Rolan, Get Digi with Lead4ward

    • Let's learn how to put a digital spin on classic Lead4ward strategies using Zoom Breakouts!
