 Jason BorgenA  Day in the Life of a Mobile ClassroomMobile devices provide an INTO, THROUGH, and BEYOND approach to learning. From anticipatory sets  and close reading strategies to formative assessments and creative approaches to learning, this session will focus on a variety of apps that can be used in a mobile/BYOD classroom. Apps discussed will include Socrative, TinyTap, NearPod, Subtext, Flash Cards, Animoto, Touchcast, Telegami, and many more! Bring your iPad!!
 Kevin BrookhouserAndroid Apps, Robots, and Code Tinker SessionWith the MIT App Inventor, participants will learn how to create basic apps while building code in an easy-to-understand graphical interface. Start by creating a simple “Hello world!” app to become familiar with the developer tools. Then create a magic 8 ball app that can predict the future. Design a drawing app with a custom background while learning coding fundamentals. There is no coding experience required for this session. It does help a lot to have a laptop computer and an Android device. We'll also dive into Lego Mindstorms EV3, and play around with using code to automate robotics. Get ready to experiment, play, fail, iterate, and share!
 Stacey CoolIt's Time to Play! Web-based Multimedia Tools for Student ProjectsCommon Core has students demonstrating the real-world relevance of the content they are learning.  In this session we will learn different web-based tools that you can teach your students to reach those higher levels of Bloom’s Taxonomy and the Rigor-Relevance Scale.  We will look at simple, free web-based tools such as EDpuzzle, TouchCast, Moovly, ThingLink, PowToon, and that you and your students can use to create interesting products and presentations, bringing their classroom to life.  Participants will select one of the tools and create a finished product while in the session. A laptop or Chromebook will work best for this session.

 Nick CusumanoLive from Your Classroom- 21st Century Learners LiveMake your classroom a TV studio, film set, podcasting, or news station to help your students make strategic use of digital media to enhance understanding of the findings, reasoning, and evidence. Explore project based learning using Chromebooks, iPads, tablets and cell phones to guide your students to create engaging content that reflects their learning. Using great online tools such as Google Hangouts, YouTube’s Video Editor,  Sound Cloud, and deliver your students' content to an authentic audience. Bringing  both a smartphone or tablet along with a laptop or Chromebook required. 

 Rachel DiephouseCreating Spoken Word Poetry to Inspire Social ChangeWords may not be the only way to communicate anymore, but they're still powerful. Spoken word poetry creates powerful messages that you can't help but share. This session will lead you through how to empower students to create their own spoken word poetry videos to inspire social change in your subject area. See examples from one seventh grade class, learn the process, and begin creating your own example to share with your students. Be inspired by the possibilities and abilities our students have to change the world.
 Megan Ellis Behind the Curtain - Running a "Paperlite" Classroom  This session will take you "behind the scenes" of a typical assignment cycle in my "paperlite" classroom. See how to manage prewriting through publication with 100+ students all from the cloud. If you have struggled with students sharing untitled documents with you, been frustrated by receiving hundreds of emails with sharing notifications, or just want to streamline your own classroom practice, we will look at tips, tricks, and scripts that will simplify your workload and give you more time to play on the beach. 

 Erica Goldsworthy An Ipad in a science classroom? Most people are intrigued by the idea of an Ipad in classroom and even more ears perk up when they hear it can be used in a SCIENCE classroom. I can list specific Ipad apps for different science topics but the real transformation for the students comes from the whiteboard and video apps. Learn how to incorporate projects into the classroom using these apps to help students explain their understanding while practicing their presentation skills. Common Core has an emphasis on writing and explaining but also presentation skills. Every science classroom needs an Ipad!

 Melissa Hero Citizen Science with Mobile Devices Science doesn’t always take place in a lab (or classroom). With the help of mobile devices, we can take students outdoors to participate in real world science and data collection. Citizen Science is a growing movement where “citizens” can participate in research that is relevant locally and globally. Many of these projects allow our students to collaborate with scientists. In this session, you will learn how citizen science can inspire students to get involved in global investigations. We will explore iNaturalist, Project Noah, and others, in the classroom and “in the field”.

You will need a laptop to set up accounts, and a mobile device "in the field".
 Bob Kelly iPads, Projects, and Critical Thinking Use iPads to help your students create, build, think, and work in their own, new ways. iPads will allow your students to surpass the common core standards by helping them learn how to build critical thinking skills through project based learning. Your students will be able to create great, original projects, which will give them the skills to thrive in the new realities we all face.

 Diane Main GarageBand Karaoke: Song Parodies to Spice Up your Teaching Spice up your teaching and students’ learning with fun song parodies that you and your students create using GarageBand. We will review the entire process, beginning to end, involved in creating a song parody related to your curriculum content. We’ll also look at how videos for these parodies can be created too. Then each participant will start on his or her own parody idea, or we can create one together as a group.  This is a great opportunity for your students to build their literacy skills through creative writing and meet the demands of Common Core.
