SeeSaw
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

SeeSaw is a digital platform for portfolios. It empowers students to document independently what they are learning at school in all subject areas. The portfolios allow the students to show their work through a variety of ways; pictures, videos, drawing, text, PDF's and links. It is an excellent way to assess student learning through self reflection, peer and teacher assessment.
Join us to explore what SeeSaw is all about and take a look at the ways we have implemented it from K-6.
Please bring an Ipad or Chromebook to allow you to download the app and use during the session.

Math Mind Research
Limited Capacity seats available

At the Math Minds initiative we have identified principles for successful mathematics teaching to support all students. These principles are based on 5 years of research in the classroom and include insights from neuroscience (cognitive load). In this session we will elaborate on one of these principles, “Ribboning,” which informs teaching decisions moment by moment in mathematics lessons.

Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Each person will receive a part of a whole recipe as they enter into the Kitchen. They will have to talk with the other people in the class to create a cookie recipe to produce. There are 4 different recipes that have similarities but some real difference as well. They will have to produce their cookies and see if they were able to get the recipes right. Great for team building and communication between class members.

What do you do with cellphones in the classroom?
Limited Capacity seats available

What do I do?What do I do?
You use them!! The devices in the pockets of our students pack more processing power than the desktop computers of fifteen years ago. The neuroplasticity of the 21st Century Learner is different than that of any previous generation; teachers and students alike are well-served when we approach instruction and assessment with this in mind.This session will explore some valuable apps that grades 7-12 teachers can use to begin to leverage the power of these devices. Participants will need a smartphone, tablet or iPod for this session. Necessary apps will be communicated to participants in the fall.
