Session Title

Session Description

Kevin Brookhouser Class Polling without Clickers Clickers are expensive ... and they only do one thing. By allowing students to use their mobile phones, iPod Touches, tablets, and laptops, teachers can take advantage of devices students already have to create interactive and engaging lessons using polleverywhere.com and Google Forms. Teachers will learn to create on-the-fly polls to track student understanding and keep them engaged.

Alice Chen Turn on the Smartphone! Ask students to turn on their smartphones (or iOS devices) to bring the 21st Century into your classroom. Learn how to back channel when Twitter is blocked at school, how to host quality online discussions, poll students to know what they're really thinking, turn in work, and create projects on a smartphone or other mobile devices. We will also be sharing many ideas on how others will be using the tools shared in this session so don't miss out on the collaboration. This session is also great for those who do teach in a 1:1 mobile classroom or those who check out carts to use in the classroom. What you learn today can be used on all computing devices - tablets and laptops, too. Work flow challenges and solutions will also be covered.
Jeanne Feeney Stop Motion Videos with Your iP@d How to use iphones, ipod touches, or ipads to create stop motion animation videos around any topic.The apps I will demonstrate are Lego Super Hero, Google drive and iMovie as well as WeVideo. I will show you how students can collaborate on script writing to show their understanding of  a topic and focus their idea. Students then record voiceovers for their stop motion movie. These tools allow for endless creative approaches and students can provide the toys and tools!

Also hear about how educators have tied this fun activity in with blogging, skyping, and other global communication to expand their learners’ horizons beyond the classroom.

Ryan O’Donnell Teaching with Visuals Teaching With Visuals 
Technology has given us new tools. Now lets look at how to change the way we teach to best make connections with our students to the curriculum. This session will show several strategies for those looking to break the PowerPoint style of teaching. From high tech to low tech we will look at ways to have students become active participants in their learning.
John Stevens Unleashing Creativity Using Student Cell Phones and Personal Devices Unleashing creativity that exists outside the classroom while inside the classroom.

Sounds complicated, right?  That's because kids don't get to become creative with their devices until they leave our rooms. Join me as we collaborate with others on how we can allow students to use their devices of any platform to create unique collages, videos, posts, and more to expand- no, break down- the walls of traditional teaching.  This is not a stand and deliver session.  The intent is a forum in which ideas will be shared to give us the best possible ways to handle student creativity.
Joe Wood Smartphone Photography The best camera is the one that you have with you and today nearly everyone has a camera just a few fingertips away.  During this session we will discover tips and tricks for using your smartphone to document the world through built-in tools and supplemental apps.  After some quick tutorials we will join the Geocaching group on a smartphone photo safari.
