Are Your Students Ready for the Smarter Balanced Technology Requirements? 

Make sure your students have the technology and 21st century skills they need for the upcoming Smarter Balanced assessments.  We will examine some Smarter Balanced examples, and take an in-depth look at Easy Tech, an online instruction that teaches mouse basics to HTML, 21st century skills, online safety, prescriptive keyboarding, and word processing.  Easy Tech engages students with Common Core-aligned curriculum projects, while students gain a sense of accomplishment as they exercise critical thinking and build essential technology skills.  We will also discuss technology assessments that can help you to differentiate instruction.

Integrating MDM and NAC to Thrive in the Mobile Age

Who Wants to be on the Morning News Show? 

Producing a morning news show is like engaging in play. Although we take the show seriously, being in front of a camera, operating equipment, and creating multimedia is fun. Play takes many forms, and our show has news, weather, announcements, contests, patriotism, community involvement, and daily visits from Einstein. Our crew changes every 3 weeks - that's long enough to gain mastery, confidence, and a sense of accomplishment without becoming ho-hum. We use Ustream Producer and add multimedia with Animoto, Aucacity, Irfanview, flip video and online video sources. 5th graders produce each show. Learning is fast, fun, and fresh.

Gaming Tools Smackdown 

Gaming or digital based learning has been around for a decade whether virtual, simulation, or web-based.  According to the Federation of American Scientists (FAS), games promote active learning, learning by doing, and learner-centered learning, all of which compel the student to become part of the learning process--not just the object of lectures or reading materials. This fast-paced session will begin with a quick overview of the recent brain research regarding learning and the adolescent brain, and then look at over 35+ games that fall into the categories of action/adventure, games of battle, building games, puzzle games, role-playing games, games of sport, and strategy games. We also have game templates, and additional resources and pertinent infographics to gaming and education. We will be presenting from a PPT and our GenZ and Gaming Site: http://bit.ly/genz_gaming.  The PPT is posted in Edmodo. Group Code is rueaeo.
