Read closely to determine what the text says explicitly and to make logical inferences from it; cite specific textual evidence when writing or speaking to support conclusions drawn from the text. Determine central ideas or themes of a text and analyze their development; summarize the key supporting details and ideas. Analyze how and why individuals, events, and ideas develop and interact over the course of a text. Integrate and evaluate content presented in diverse formats and media, including visually and quantitatively, as well as in words. Delineate and evaluate the argument and specific claims in a text, including the validity of the reasoning as well as the relevance and sufficiency of the evidence. Analyze how two or more texts address similar themes or topics in order to build knowledge or to compare the approaches the authors take. Analyze multiple interpretations of a story, drama, or poem (e.g., recorded or live production of a play or recorded novel or poetry), evaluating how each version interprets the source text. (Include at least one play by Shakespeare and one play by an American dramatist.) Conduct short as well as more sustained research projects based on focused questions, demonstrating understanding of the subject under investigation. Gather relevant information from multiple print and digital sources, assess the credibility and accuracy of each source, and integrate the information while avoiding plagiarism. Draw evidence from literary or informational texts to support analysis, reflection, and research.

presentation_description

Giving every student a computing device empowers the learner to take ownership of their learning. But where does that leave the teacher? All my students have laptops will help the teacher set up their classroom, explore different tools that can be used and what they can be used for, how to get started, and some of the ups and the downs we experienced in the implementation. Project Based Learning focuses on the student being an empowered learner, technology is a tool that allows the student to do this. Teachers are often apprehensive to use PBL in their classrooms as they would be giving up control over their rooms. With planning and development the teacher can become the facilitator and the student can begin to actively learn and apply the acquire knowledge to a given situation.

The audience will learn where learning management technology is headed and how 20,000 schools around the world are using this technology to successfully engage students, involve parents and make teachers more productive in learning environments.

The presentation will empower attendees to be leaders in the transformation of learning by allowing them to feel comfortable using social networking to grow their personal learning network, connect with experts in the field and use the technology to enhance their knowledge and connections.

App discovery and curation are one of the greatest and ever growing skills iOS device users of all levels need to master. This session will aim to foster this sprit among new and seasoned users as well as allow for informal networking among those with a common interest in iOS devices and their use in education. With the emerging popularity of the iPad in education today, administrators, teachers, and students alike are looking for new ways to best leverage these devices in education. This session will aim to engage participants into how easy it can be to create their own original, high quality content to make the most of these devices in the classroom. Challenge based learning in a modern version of project-based learning that empowers students and supports 21st century models of thinking. This workshop will aim to enlighten, educate, and entertain those who attend about this teaching and learning methodology can be employed at many grades levels and subject areas with great success for students, teachers, and administrators alike.

Apple technologies have always been popular in education and with the rise in popularity of iOS devices, more and more users are become reacquainted or introduce to Apple technologies once again. This session is design to inform and educate those who may have an interest in use or applying Apple's technologies in their own educational environment. With the ever growing interest in cloud computing in education today, many users are turning to the ease of use and flexibility of Google Apps to meet their needs. This session is designed to cultivate common interest in these tools among conference participants and provide a means to connect them in solving and promoting the use of Google Apps in education. iPad usage continues to grow in education and many schools are start to deploy devices for student use. This session will help share best practices in pedagogy for using these device effectively and creatively in the classroom. The impact of this session will help those already implementing share their success stories and offer inspiration and ideas for those hoping to implement in the near future.

This presentation shows how teachers, librarians, and School Library Systems are collaborating to create powerful solutions to emerging challenges.

Online learning can be powerful if used correctly to facilitate instruction. Used incorrectly, it's no more valuable than a teacher on a VHS tape.

My goal is to share ideas for teachers to be able to take home and implement in their own district or classroom as ways to integrate technology. Technology should be a tool to help students reach the learning desired, not an end in itself. The presentation will demonstrate the integration of several technologies (online presence, instant messaging, video chat/web conferencing, shared documents, whiteboards, wikis, blogs and simultaneous collaboration) that extend the world of school while supporting individual learning and the delivery of core instruction. It supports teachers by providing real-time data (grades, exam scores, class rosters, attendance and discipline reports) enabling them to make data-informed curricular adjustments to address individual assessments.

This session will focus on the conference theme by providing attendees with ways to take traditional social studies classroom teaching techniques (lecture, rote memorization, etc) and turn it into a powerful learning environment through technology.

I will highlight many tools that attendees can use right away in their daily classroom practice and with their students that are free! I don't go through a list of tools, but rather examine what the tools do and how it can be integrated into the classroom or the life of the learners in the classroom. My sessions are intended to be empowering and inspiring. I will highlight many tools that attendees can use right away in their daily classroom practice and with their students that are free!

MySeptember 2009. the classroom or the life when they started with this grant in sessions are Most teachers continued through the second year of our grant, focused on intended to be empowering and inspiring. integrating technologies while infusing 21st century skills. They have come a long way to be using these technologies with their classes! They are very inspirational and due to this, we hope that other teachers will find the courage (and encouragement) to try to use various educational technologies in their schools. We would also like the participants to see how student engagement is an important part of this process, as well as an outcome, and the relevance that technology has on student outcomes. This presentation will empower attendees to be leaders in the transformation of learning through the use of technology in general music. By using 21st century Web tools, students experience collaboration, communication, and creativity through their exploration of music. Exploring general music through this manner allows students to experience current available technologies in the industry. The arts are a driving force in technology and therefore students need to be able to Participants will learn in theirinnovative projects and programs that bring together utilize the technology about everyday lives. students from diverse cultural, social, and economic backgrounds through webbased activities, social networking, and collaborative learning. The presentation will also introduce participants to a range of online projects and programs throughout the world that are helping schools, teachers, and students make meaningful connections across the globe. Using a hands-on approach, participants will be able to explore various opportunities they can employ in their NYSCATE thrives on promoting educators on using technology to provide classrooms. students with an education that will prepare them to live a satisfying and productive life. Mobile devices, such as the iPod Touch and iPad, are becoming very popular among the education field. Teachers are in need of ways to change their standard lessons and begin to adapt these devices into them. When participants attend our session, they will be given a tool kit to help them get started in this process. Not only are students going to be motivated to learn in a different way, but they are also learning new technology skills. Just as teachers are seeking to expand students' understanding of their world through technology, technology has emerged that can transform their own learning. Using data to make informed decisions about student learning is now an essential component of the educational landscape. Sadly, the field is increasingly equating data with numbers and values that can fit neatly into spreadsheets. TinkerPlots is a tool that can help leaders focus on quality data, both quantitative and qualitative. The Common Core Standards call for technology to be integrated seamlessly into instruction, thereby empowering students to publish online, critically evaluate Internet resources and use and understand multmedia's impact on instruction. This presentation will provide many examples of how this integration will transform learning.

Participants will leave the session with concrete examples of best practices which they can employ in their own district or classroom as they implement iPad technology. All resources, links, documents, and files demonstrated will be available to participants online so that they can refer back to them as well as share them with others after the session.

The presentation will explain how and why one district create an online community for upper elementary students to learn and collaborate. We will share our successes and challenges so that others can learn from our experiences.

Students will need to know how to communicate and work with others to complete a task. Technology will be an integrant part of their lives. Even the most untechno teacher can do this. Technology is a tool students are motivated to use. By creating individualized portfolios to reflect their learning, all students can observe their journey through the grade levels to be leaders in the growth in all content areas.they must first be If attendees are as they watch their transformation of learning, This information not only fosters faster growth by the student, butpositive a teacher to reflect on a respected as ethical professionals. Projecting a allows and professional self student'skey towork. The teacher can be prepared to facilitate differentiated online is past building leadership capacity. instruction as soon as the school year begins. This one technology tool accepts any format of technology, so students learn how to import,export, convert, take screen shots and scan work to be uploaded into the portfolio. The working technology can be transformed by the student each year as the student matures. Technology can be now evaluated from one year to the next in realistic projects instead of multiple choice questions on a basic skills test. The skilss are reflected in the comprehensive work by the student. A key 21st century skill is to be able to process enormous amounts of information and synthesize it into work that has added value. No one does this better than the authors who create nonfiction literature for children—books about the real world that inspire, inform, and motivate readers to learn more. Why not let both teachers and students learn from these masters? Technology (videoconferencing) can bring them to you for your own personal interaction.

Technology is the avenue through which learning takes place from within to outside the classroom. Videoconferencing eliminates distance, regardless of geography. This presentation will empower attendees by providing them with an understands of ways to integrate iPad (mobile devices) into and elementary classroom. With thousands of apps available, giving them several solid examples of apps across curriculum areas will allow them to begin integrating these devices in their classroom.

Digital storytelling is gain popularity by educators across the country, as it allows At the 2010 practice several different hundreds of members were inspired by Peter students to NYSCATE Conference, 21st Century skills. By attending this Reynolds’ opening keynoteleave withwhere he advocated help importance of workshop, participants will session, ideas that they can the teach digital fostering creativity iPad. storytelling on the in students through technology. The Dot Project," is an endeavor directly based on the ideas that Reynolds' shared at least years conference. This is an activity that introduces students to new technology (iPad) and -- like the theme for the 2011 Conference -- "lets them soar," as they use their imagination to make and share creative artwork with the world. I feel that attendees would benefit from learning about this project, and that this example, would give them ideas on ways that they could use technology to foster creativity in their own classrooms.

Given the opportunity the English Language Learners can meet and exceed all expectation. The 1 -1 computer program at Jefferson High School not only meets the state standards but also: Exposing students to technology such as iPads, Netbooks, Digital Cameras Developing Critical Thinking with projects that build off their positive experiences Enhancing 21st Century Skills (collaboration, digital communication, and Digital Social Etiquette) Providing Differentiated Learning (Meeting kids at their level and providing necessary support) Enrich High School experiences College readiness

As educators we are always striving to best prepare our students for their next stages of their lives so they may become happy and productive adults. As students move from high school to college life and careers, they need the best technology skills we can give them. As fast as we are teaching today’s technology it is advancing and changing. Strong 21st century skills enabling them to adapt are critical. The presenters for this topic have many years of experience in both K-12 and higher education settings so they offer their first-hand knowledge of what types of technology skills students need and how to prepare them for the types of demands and settings they will face. Through this presentation, attendees will take away ideas, templates, and strategies to engage students using a highly interactive review with SMART board and Notebook Software. By utilizing the SMART technology in the classroom you will transform the way students interact with and retain material during any type of test preparation. It will engage students at all levels.

This presentation will empower attendees to be leaders in the transformation of learning through the use of Web 2.0 applications. Participants will explore how digital stories can be integrated into all academic areas to allow students to demonstrate their growth and knowledge of content through 21st century learning applications. Students are constantly accessing social media networks for the purpose of expression. Using similar technologies teachers can motivate learners, transform and shape expression related to their specific content area, and evaluate student knowledge using applications that are readily being used in todays workforce. NYSCATE’s mission to lead the transformation of teaching and learning through technology is the driving force behind this project, “Sports Mania.” The focus of the project was to enhance the health and physical activity of elementary students. A majority of elementary students have access to and use technology such as the Wii, Playstation, Xbox, etc., therefore as leaders of technology we aspire to demonstrate and teach children how these technologies can be used to Transform Teaching and Learning health. Technology help improve their overall physical through Technology has made an impact in our district as it is the tool of this generation. Leveraging a tool they come prepared to utilize will include them in the process of their own learning. Video holds many advantages for students and teachers. Teachers can integrate writing, planning, social learning, and collaborative work while students have a form of expression that gives them a larger voice. This enhanced environment transforms the way students learn and their attitudes about what they are learning.

Videoconferencing with authors helps improve students learning by generating more interest and curiosity about the books they are reading. Meeting the authors encourages students to think critically about the work they are reading and to ask questions beyond the basics of the book. We have seen reluctant readers read books enthusiastically when they know they will be speaking with the author or other classrooms about their books.

The mission will be addressed by providing attendees with valuable technological tools and training that will assist them in providing pedagogically sound and technology enhanced instruction.

The mission will be addressed by providing attendees with valuable technological tools and training that will assist them in providing pedagogically sound and technology enhanced instruction. In addition, teachers will leave with new applications and a solid lesson plan that can be used immediately. Workshop participants will reflect on their current educational practice. They will consider ways to differentiate instruction with integrated technology that matches students’ learning styles and levels of proficiency. Collaboration amongst teachers and cooperative learning within classrooms is emphasized. Gardner’s This presentation shows teachers and curriculum be re-visited with particular Multiple Intelligences and Bloom’s Taxonomy will support staff how with a small investment of time and resources, a migration to using remotely operated or attention to 21st century skills. remote-based 21st Century T&L STEM initiatives is very achievable. Attendees will interact with the planned STEM instrumentation demonstrations and some of the attendees will be hands-on with some of the simulations. If selected, this proposal is part of the NYSDLC group and should be scheduled for the NYSDLC space in the Hyatt on either Monday or Tuesday so that demonstrations and simulations can be scheduled during normal operational hours (9am-4pmEST).

This workshop will highlight the key components, strategies and techniques needed to implement the use of technology to supplement curriculum for young elementary children. Participants will leave with ideas, methods and resources to implement technology with their own lessons. Research has demonstrated that students with autism generally have stronger visual processing skills and in inherent interest in multimedia and technology. Visual Learning techniques paired with innovative web 2.0 technologies can empower attendees to transform autism and special education through flexible and engaging instruction.

• Participants will be able to download apps and identify ways to use the apps to differentiate instruction and improve student engagement. • Participants will look at how to develop higher order thinking skills through some of the Intel and other resources that are available on the web using the ipad. • Participants will be exposed to accessibility features on the ipad that can help students. • Participants will come away with specific strategies for the integration of the ipad into the classroom whether they have 1 ipad or one for each student. We are demonstrating how easy it is to bring professional development for technology integration to teachers. Not only do we show how to create something, our teachers then preform the task and have a finished product that they can use in their classroom. It also provides a platform to reach a larger range of teachers and stay up on the most current technologies.

Further, the participants will bring back additional tools to become peer leaders through modeling the transformational learning process within their areas of specialization. At the local level, through collegial collaboration and shared goals, they will create new partnerships using the same innovative tools familiar to the students. Asynchronous sessions will be incorporated to further build their PLN and collaborate with colleagues far and near.

We have used graphica and online comic creators with at-risk urban students (grades 1-4) and have found this medium to be a superb motivator that improves stamina and literacy skills. Moreover, online comic generators engage struggling learners in writing and improving their comprehension of text. Because graphica is appropriate K-8 (and beyond) and is multimedia in format (digital images, audio and video), we think this presentation will excite leaders to consider ways they could integrate technology across the curriculum while developing 21st Century literacy skills.

These ideas are based on the TechYES model of student-led professional development, which is well-known and used in many New York State schools. Attendees will learn about some practices that may help them with project-based teaching and assessment using technology.

Many times online students feel that they are on their own. By offering the support of the mentor, many now have the confidence to concentrate on their coursework. Even those students that can't come to campus can be supported through the use of some simple technology tools, so they don't feel that they are in it alone!

Attendees will leave this presentation with the understanding of how to align a technology tool with an activity or project to facilitate student engagement and achievement. Understanding ways a tool can be used will enable those in attendance to depart with the ability to immediately develop technology projects. This class provides attendees with cutting edge SMART Board techniques that they can immediately use in the classroom or during staff presentations. The use of a SMART Board has been shown to increase student attention. Attendees can leverage this power effect of the SMART Board to further assist them in transforming their classroom effectiveness.

As NYS enters the virtual learning environment, NYS teachers need to stay on the cutting edge by gaining strategies of how to take their traditional classroom online! Your students are ready....are you?

This will show attendees that you can use open source to build a highly While the drive to meet students' unique learning needs is certainly nothing new competitive product that better meets customer needs at a much lower price by in the educational arena, never before have so many educators been so robustly working collaboratively. equipped with technologies that, when purposefully incorporated into learning environments, can profoundly amplify their impact on student learning. Understanding the new literacies that emerging technology now demands is an important first step for educators looking keep their teaching relevant and meaningful. The concepts and strategies presented here will provide a starting point for those wishing to incorporate Web 2.0 tools into their teaching practice and understand why they should. In October of 2010, Microsoft instructed all the manufacturers of Windows PCs that they could no longer sell new computers with Windows XP installed. This will force school districts to purchase machines running Windows 7. Victor Central Schools spent over 6 months doing the necessary research and testing in order to rollout Windows 7. The purpose of this session is to share our expertise and experience with other participants. I gave this same presentation at the 2011 ISTE conference in Philadelphia

Using the criteria from the application for Center for Digital Technology's survey, district will have an understanding of how to utilize their district and teacher websites as models for communication and learning with Boards of Education, students, teachers, parents and the 21st century community.

Participants will learn of available free resources that will allow them to connect beyond their traditional classroom as well as how to create, manage and stream their own content via the web. The use of videoconferencing has the capability of opening new learning opportunities for the 21st century learner and teacher.

Teachers will be shown tips and tricks for making podcasts, animations and movies easier with students. Student work will be showcased so teachers can invision projects students can create. The Why? One of the most challenging questions students and teachers ask themselves when teaching and learning. Attendees will view two expeditions that had high student engagement and integrated several content areas with the use of technology. Students created products with a service component that left them feeling better about themselves as citizens and learners. At the end of this session, participants will be able to: • demonstrate their understanding of how fair use applies to digital learning • explain why educators should be leaders in establishing user rights through fair use • be confident and motivated to continue their learning about copyright and fair use

Not everyone is artistic, but everyone is creative. Graphics-Toolbox evens the playing field and gives all students the tools they need to customize graphics to reflect their own ideas and creativity. Those skills will grow with them throughout their academic years, developing their minds into critical and innovative thinkers, better preparing them for the competition of higher education and the work force.

As a result of attending this presentation, attendees will see actual examples of student products and projects that were created in the classroom. The will also become privy to the process by which those projects were made. The objective of the presentation is to make Web 2.0 tools ACCESSIBLE, not simply interesting. We see many tools and yet aren't always able to see the practical application of those tools in the classroom. This presentation will allow the attendees to learn about different ways they can easily and affordably integrate on-line digital storytelling tools to enhance literacy within the content areas at the elementary level. Teachers will learn how the applications were implemented into an actual classroom and then also get the opportunity to learn the process, use the applications and be given step-by-step instruction manuals so that they can take it back to their own classrooms to utilize in their own instruction. This presentation will show participants how to use products such as the Educational Video Library and My Big Campus, all components of Light Speed Systems and how to engage students into collaborative methods of learning. I will give examples of how teachers in the William Floyd School District are implementing this product into their lessons and also give an over view of the implementation and the management from an administrators view point. Digital storytelling now has a solid foundation of use within our schools. This presentation explores how digital storytelling has evolved, provides ideas and strategies for extending the student experience to a global level, and how the process can be supported by cloud-based creation tools that enable the voice of students to be heard anywhere, anytime, and on any type of device. As a result, this presentation helps NYSCATE members enrich and extend a now-familiar process to find additional and important value. This panel discussion will help leaders understanding the current state of technology with a glimpse of what is coming through the pipeline that they need to be aware of. We will also discuss the challenges that social media present to schools and provide solutions to those challenges. As a result, this panel discussion will directly support and contribute to NYSCATE's role as a leading organization in educational technology.

This presentation helps teachers remain on the cutting edge of emerging technologies, and gives them a quick and easy way to understand what the most applicable technologies are, and how they can be applied to teaching and learning.

Being able to process and create representations of visual information is absolutely essential for a 21st Century learner. This presentation provides teachers with the resources and techniques for integrating the most current media (infographics) so that students can learn the skills that contribute to visual literacy.

This presentation will share ideas for how to be effective leaders in technology integration. I will be giving concrete ideas based on strategies I implemented successfully, in order to reach the goal of helping a school or district's students find their days infused with technology used in meaningful and powerful ways.

This presentation will help educators make use of freely available software and online applications to support their teaching and collaboration. Educators will learn how they can create a paperless, streamlined process to collect data to facilitate information driven decision-making in schools. The examples that will be highlighted will motivate educators to use of Google Docs to help teachers and schools avoid duplication of efforts, and improve collaboration and access of resources. This presentation will highlight the parts of the process and the web tools that worked, and will also reflect difficulties that were encountered. It will help attendees see that 1-2 upgrades to instruction are not as difficult as they may have imagined. Student work will show that even elementary students are able to participate in global, digital connections without much difficulty. Virtualization of the desktop enables anytime, anywhere access, changes the nature of the IT department to a service-oriented architecture, and shifts the focus of the enterprise to future-ready concepts such as bring your own technology" with support for various clients and platforms (think enterprise desktop on your iPad!)." This presentation will empower attendees to think outside the box when it comes to professional development. The use of technology can transform professional development and ultimately the learning of students. Participants will walk away with tools and access to our courses as well as information to launch this in their own district. The presentation will allow attendees to see the power of collaboration within a district as well as between districts. Directors and teachers were able to help transform learning of ESL students through the use of technology by keeping the communication open, collaborating and honing on key professional development. The technology used by the teachers and students not only transformed the students but the teachers gained new knowledge and skills in their professional career. This presenation will demonstrate gains in learning we have seen across the 20 districts in NYS that have current MLD programs. We will alos discuss how using the Verizon network, state aid and OGS contract can create a affordable vehicle to move to a 1:1 enviroment. In addition as the RTTT standards become defined Verizon has application devloper relationships to create data collection programs to assist in the implementation of the standards. By engaging teachers in online professional learning communities we are equipping them with 21st Century skills needed to teach students to be successful in online learning environments. This is the start of a transformation of our professional learning communities in the Grand Island Central Schools through the use of technology.

Classroom transformation happens when students are able to collaborate with partners from other areas of the country or globe. Through inquiry students hear about different perspectives and subject matter experts taking control of take control of their learning and expand their understanding of content topics.

The changes needed to transform learning through the use of technology require all stakeholders – including students. Students are often the forgotten stakeholders, even though they are the primary reason that educational institutions exist. Many schools in New York do include students as allies, advocates and leaders in the effort to integrate technology, and these best practices will be shared in this session.

Many educators are considering new models to revolutionize education. Games These findings and practical methodologies can be appliedwill technology literacy for learning is a huge topic with many facets. This session to provide and by 8th grade, a requirement in New York State, plus all the right directionFocusing overview of games in education and point educators in STEM subjects. to on student choice,their own. for both structured and unstructured access to lots of explore further on plus time different computing experiences is crucial to developing literacy and fluency with computers and scientific thinking. My vision includes a teacher or mentor modeling passion, collaboration, interest in the subject, and offering experiences that challenge students without coercion, tricks, or rankings. The session will focus on how to attain these goals inside the school structure and in a way that meets the needs of students, teachers, and the community.

Educators will be able to implement, Not only will this presentation provide devices afterwith resources, but it will also plan and share new lessons with iOS participants this session. explore the pedagogical theory and practices that will allow participants to follow NYSCATE’s mission of empowering attendees to be leaders in the transformation of learning through the use of technology. More important than just the resources to teachers is building the confidence to incorporate those resources into the classroom. This presentation will expose participants to piloted research that will inform their future decisions on how virtual learning and student programming can build the foundation for strong learning in their classrooms. This presentation will empower attendees to be leaders by exposing them to the discovery learning process in mathematics and science. Participants will work as their students would in the classroom, discovering their learning instead of being told what to know. The format of the workshop will model an effective classroom use of the technology that will not only make them comfortable, but will also provide a better representation of what a 21st century science or mathematics classroom should look like. This session will empower young people to become more active global citizens through virtual, cross-cultural collaborations on pressing global issues. GNG's programs are a step towards international, peaceful co-existence through dialogue, which leads to greater understanding amongst participants. The programs also enhance student learning through innovative content. As educators we are always striving to best prepare our students for their next stages of their lives. The growth rate of online learning continues to far excel any other learning environment (21% in 2010). Are our students prepared for their new online learning environments? The presenters for this topic have many years of experience in both K-12 and higher online education settings so they offer their first-hand knowledge of what types of skills students need to best function as online learners.

This presentation will empower attendees to be leaders in transformative learning through technology because they will leave with a thorough understanding of realtime data integration via SIF with cloud-based productivity suites such as Microsoft Live@edu (Office365) and Google Apps for Education.

and consistent. Through participation in this presentation, participants will learn about a new technology that is revolutionizing the delivery of testing accommodations and program modifications for students with disabilities. Participants will briefly explore the history of testing accommodations and program modifications, and will discover how many of these previous methods do not truly provide the students with what they really need: The ability to access information equal to that of their peers. Life Project released survey results will Last year, the Pew Internet & American Through this presentation participants learn how that nearly three-quarters of provide increasedusers spend time on indicating technology is changing this teenage Internet opportunities for students with disabilities to haveWhile critics characterize that of networking sites social networking websites.

In fact, a 2007 National School Boards Association study district in various subject areas. networks to talk about educational topics, and 50% of of students use social students use the networks to “talk specifically about school-work.” (2) These statistics suggest that education is developing a new presence in the online world of social media. “Educational networking,” (3) the use of social networking technologies for educational purposes, aligns with federal and state goals to promote innovative and collaborative technology. However, few education systems have considered adopting educational networking initiatives. Concerns regarding privacy, legality, and safety prevent educators from embracing a potentially valuable tool. Policymakers supportive of educational networking struggle to overcome political and logistical barriers to implementation. A recent survey, completed by edWeb.net (4) and others, indicated that while principals see value in social networking tools, they feel they lack the policies necessary to harness these tools in a safe manner. This presentation will inform such stakeholders and other policymakers of the benefits and concerns associated with implementing educational networking in This session, as districtsthe NYSDLConsortium's Hyattapply what they have New York State part of and schools.

The additional support of the changes in NYSED regulations will allow this to occur for each and every student in NYS.

Attendees will be empowered to utilize collaborative technologies to connect with students distributed geographically. Participants will learn how the technologies proved to be the point of engagement to study science content and collective formative assessment data. Participants will be introduced to Bloom’s Digital Taxonomy and explore ways to integrate one level of the taxonomy into their own lessons. Objectives: Participants will investigate Bloom’s Digital Taxonomy and associated resources. Participants will discuss and critique the elements of the taxonomy. Participants will choose one element and determine how to integrate it as a resource or an assessment tool into their own curriculum.

This presentation provides attendees with helpful resources and ideas to integrate technology into the school curriculum.

Attendees will learn how to prepare students for Computer-Based Testing (CBT) and can take this knowledge back to their districts. They will also learn how to teach students to be critical thinkers. Adobe Acrobat Pro software, digital pictures, documents and audio/visual files will help attendees create a template of their own. Teachers will feel a new sense of empowerment and enthusiasm as they leave with a tool that can benefit their students in this ever-changing educational era.

Teachers who attend this workshop will be able return to their home schools excited about the instructional possibilities of collaborative, cloud-based technology. They will have seen specific examples and resources that they can share with their colleagues.

This session directly addresses the foundational learning pedagogies that are built upon active learning, empowering learners, creativity, authentic audience, and constructing knowledge... all facilitated by the leveraging of new technologies. Attendees will be shown and guided through a screen cast process and will come away with skills that can easily be taught again at their home district. Screen casting is definitely a way to transform learning from the teacher to the child in a 21st century way. Trainees (students or colleagues) can learn at their own pace, pause, rewind, revisit, and review the material in a screen cast at their leisure. This especially supports struggling learners, but all students as well.

The deployment and content stage are vital to the success of any technology, especially with the iPad/iOS. In this post-PC era, it is vital to understand the new methods around deployment and management are important.

Creative graphics can parse information for a range of learners and make sense of concepts for all levels of thinking. The technologies available allow for the slicing of data, images and words into layers of information to construct meaning. Taking advantage of these resources enables teachers to design their own image-based information as well as guide students in inventing their own infographics. Participants will acquire new technology skills to transmit the concept of designing for themselves, take ownership over the design of their information, and come away with a sense of purpose to empower others to engage in the concept of designing information.

The participants will have a non-technical understanding of web accessibility and will be able to apply this understanding to their distance learning classes to produce a more accessible online class.

The participants will experience how to utilize common productivity software to both increase the rigor of the core content instruction as well as drive technology proficency for our students.

Teachers will learn to embrace a technology that has current widespread usage by students and integrate it into classroom instruction.

During this workshop, participants will engage in two hands-on mathematics tasks aligned to the Common Core Standards and Standards for Mathematical Practice. Participants will have an opportunity to create a presentation with VoiceThread and use motion detectors to explore ratios and proportional reasoning. Participants will also have the opportunity to view final products of both mathematics tasks. Participants will walk away with the two mathematics tasks lesson plans, as well as with additional materials and resources. This hands-on session will provide participants with the opportunity to become more familiar and comfortable with the software that accompanies the purchase of a SMART Board. We will find content and editing the ready-made interacting templates that can be used as part of a lesson plan. By storing these items in the My Content section of the software teachers can save time when preparing future lesson activities. There will be time for guided exploration based on teachers This will provide educators the skills and techniques that go beyond a classrooms. individual needs and/or develop files to make and take back into their basic training of how to use a SMART Board.

I had used Kodu with 5th and 6th grade students in an after-school program in a school in Olean, NY following, for the most part, a free curriculum that Microsoft has provided. The natural creativity, innovation, collaboration, critical thinking and problem solving that have took place has just been amazing to me. It far surpassed what I imagined would take place. The students were so excited that they begged me for more sessions of the club. The best part of this experience is that the students are living the 21st Century Skills without even realizing it. Attendees will develop a deep understanding of how the PARCC Assessments will change the way assessments are administered in New York State. They will be equipped to take action in preparing their teachers and students to fully utilize technology in the learning process so that the students are assessed in the same modality they use to learn.

Attendees will walk away with the tools they need to implement a “rich, realistic and relevant “ project (to quote Tom March) that integrates technology skills such as researching the internet and writing using MS Word with literacy skills and conforms to the 2nd grade science curriculum. All the necessary resources including downloadable templates for the book will be posted on my web site www.mycolleague.org.

Videoconferencing for teaching and meetings has typically always been a very costly and complex thing to do. Today web conferencing applications are rising to the top in quality, ease of use and functionality to enable schools to eConsolidate" despite great distances between them." In a diverse, student-centered classroom, learning with video can be an important tool for all students. When students watch video, from a myriad of devices connected to the internet, teachers need to have a variety of strategies to help students organize and create products with the information obtained from the videos. As video recording technology becomes more common in classrooms, teachers need to design instructional strategies that leverages the creation of video and promotes critical thinking through collaboration.

Attendees will learn how the use of the Certificate of Internet Integrity empowered a faculty to understand how technology can be used to transform learning for students to become problem solvers, analysts, and critical thinkers.

As teachers use formative assessment, they empower their students. The learning process is transformed when students receive constantly feedback through various technology as the students become the change agents.

As teachers begin to embrace smartphone (mobile learning), they transform the culture of the classroom into a more engaged, more higher level thinking class. Students take center stage

We transform learning when we give free high quality software to learners so that they can have and use these powerful tools that they normally would not have access to. We level the playing field of education.

As teachers reach their class out into the world, the students come to see things with realistic eyes, with changed perceptions, and become emphatic toward others- they transform into global citizens instead of a us-them" mentality."

As teachers use smartphone technology to do formative assessments more frequently in the class, their students transform from struggling students to successful ones. By changing how students using Web 2.0 tools such as Glogster and Voiki, we transform the class into one in which students are asked to think at higher levels and to respond to others in meaningful way. Presently, these Web 2.0 are often used as end products intended primarily for the teacher as opposed to challenging the thinking of other students.

As teachers change from just presenting information through Power Point type programs to having students learn at higher levels of learning through such programs, the teachers transform learning. Students learn to give presentations that challenges their viewers. In this interactive workshop participants will be encouraged to ask questions, use several provided iPads and even participate with their own iPad or Tablet. Participants will be asked to discuss applications from the teacher’s and learner’s As students learn to of a paper handout participants will receive goals and reflect perspective. In lieu collect evidence of their learning for major a follow-up email on that learning they become transformed agenda and any other discussions that full of resources related to the workshop’s into becoming life long learners. They take up along the way. Along with that resource, one will walk away with ideas on pop control of their learning. how Tablets can be effectively used in the classroom as well as the knowledge to continue the search for new and innovative Tablet-friendly learning tools. One focus of this workshop is to introduce applications for gaining access to content; such as Diigo, SAFARI Montage’s Digital Curriculum Presenter, a variety I hope this presentation will assist attendees in seeing practical uses for Good Reader, and Google then adapting these ideas for their own needs in their own of Google Apps and Docs. We will explore ways teachers and students can gather information while in the classroom or on field trips with the use of schools. applications like Evernote. Tablets are an ideal way for students to create “digital stories” with which they can share what they have learned and we will focus on several applications that support it. With interactive whiteboards becoming more prevalent in schools we will explore ways that Tablets can be integrated with those IWBs; including screen sharing/control apps like Splash Top and SMART Bridgit conferencing, assessment tools such as SMART Response and other Web 2.0 tools.

These techniques can dramatically reduce the resources and time-frames required for the creation and modification of data capture tools. This puts the control of the data validation and application workflow directly in the hands of the stakeholders, rather than the traditional model with it's substantial IT delays. As our youth embrace technology, they need to learn how to navigate cyberspace safely. Attendess can download various Internet safety presentations (K-HS), as well as additional videos with accompanying activities which can reinforce safety messages throughout the year. These resources will empower attendees to impart knowledge about technology to their students, families and their community.

The NYSCAE mission of transforming learning thru technology has provided us with the insight needed to address the changing nature of the learning process of our students. Over the course of my career, I have witnessed a major change in the way our children acquire information and process it for learning. This has not been caused by any specific technology or instructional strategy it is a simple result of the changing nature of information presented to all of us in this society. This presentation focuses on the use of student / teacher produced video announcements as strategy to address learning thru the power of technology.

The purpose of the grant is to make attendees aware of an exciting media literacy projects being done in a NYS school. Also it will raise awareness of this grant opportunity that teachers may apply for every year. This session will empower attendees to become leaders by showing them the role of integrating technology in writing. Attendees will observe how technology empowered 4th grade students to become writers and they will gain experience and knowledge about the use of different web based tools. They will leave the session ready to implement strategies/tools in their classrooms immediately.

Attendees will be empowered to implement project based learning strategies in their classrooms and they will understand how technology can enhance an already great project.

Teach social media skills in a safe environment and bring learning 24/7 to students no matter where they are, they can be connected to your content!

Students will express themselves via mobile devices, presenting what they have learned in class, reports, opinions, podcasts, etc.

Teacher leaders will be able to communicate via video and store on schooltube website. The presentation will explain how the Regional Information Center (MORIC) began to expand opportunities for teachers to learn about online learning. Through a collaboration with the RIC and Watertown City School District, we were able to start from scratch to prepare teachers to use their own curriculum and give them tools to put it into a virtual form. The presentation will detail from beginning to end how we were able to create an online summer school for a Watertown High School.

The challenge for even the most imaginative schools is to sustain innovation. While the technology may catalyze changes in practice, ideas bigger than the technology create a productive context for sustaining innovative practice. This presentation will explore some of the best educational ideas in the world and demonstrate how they may support or require transformational computing activities. The big ideas may include: • Reggio Emilia • The Big Picture Schools • One TurtleArt Laptop Per Child MAC,PC,Other • Constructionism • El Sistema, The Venezuelan Youth Orchestra System • Personal Fabrication • The DIY Revolution • Generation YES • 826 Valencia MAC,PC

There is no American with more direct experience working in more 1:1 schools than Gary Stager. While some schools dream of 1:1 computing someday, the presenter has been working in such contexts for twenty-one years helping educators, board members and parents make sense of the opportunities afforded by ubiquitous personal computing. Gary will reflect upon lessons learned in the twenty years since he worked with the world's first laptop schools (1990). Twenty-one pivotal lessons will be shared with video-based examples and recommendations for sustaining innovation. This session is ideally suited for policy-makers, but touches on teaching, learning, curriculum, planning, policy, leadership and implementation issues. This presentation distills this unrivaled experience into a quick exposition of the lessons learned for professional development, planning and infrastructure, defining a vision, raising expectations, best teaching practices and bold imaginative classroom applications. The presenter will share successful and failed strategies from schools across the globe. He will also challenge some of the conventional wisdom regarding the rationale, expectations and implementation of 1:1 in schools today. MAC,PC

AUP 2.0: Benefits, Last year, the Pew Internet & American Life Project released Concerns, and Best survey results indicating that nearly three-quarters of teenage PracticesGiv Internet users spend time on social networking websites. (1) While critics characterize social networking sites as portals for antisocial and unproductive behavior, there is increasing evidence that these sites improve technology proficiency, enhance social skills, and foster learning. In fact, a 2007 National School Boards Association study found that 60% of students use social networks to talk about educational topics, and 50% of students use the networks to “talk specifically about school-work.” (2) These statistics suggest that education is developing a new presence in the online world of social media. “Educational networking,” (3) the use of social networking technologies for educational purposes, aligns with federal and state goals to promote innovative and collaborative technology. However, few education systems have considered adopting educational networking initiatives. Concerns regarding privacy, legality, and safety prevent educators from embracing a potentially valuable tool. Policymakers supportive of educational networking struggle to overcome political and logistical barriers to implementation. A recent survey, completed by edWeb.net (4) and others, indicated that while principals see value in social networking tools, they feel they lack the policies necessary to harness these tools in a safe manner. This presentation will inform such stakeholders and other policymakers of the benefits and concerns associated with implementing educational networking in New York State districts and schools.

The Writing Process Today's students have grown up with video games. Many play them every day, and video games are just another part of Through Game their daily life. However, there has also been a loss of Design creativity, as the vast majorities of students have never been involved in, nor are even aware of, the creative process that takes place in game design and production. Software tools for making games have been cumbersome, expensive, or required knowledge of how to write code in the past. This is about to change. Educators leaving this workshop should feel empowered to be transformative in the learning process by utilizing students’ intrinsic interest in gaming to foster 21st century skill while reaching many aspects of the Common Core Standards. Utilizing kid friendly software such as Kodu, can be transformative to the learning process. Through the use of Kodu, students begin to think like programmers naturally. At the same time, this engages their creativity in expression and design, as well as, providing an authentic reason to write. Students have to “think different.” They need to have a decent story for the game to give people a reason to play it. They need to consider the audience, playability, design, layout, control scheme, difficulty etc. Taken to a further extent students could be required to create instruction manuals for their games thus engaging not only in narrative writing, but also informative technical writing. They could write reviews of classmates “games” and thus write opinion pieces I had used Kodu with 5th and 6th grade students in an afterschool program in a school in Olean, NY following, for the most part, a free curriculum that Microsoft has provided.

Seymour Papert, the father of educational Elementary,Middle,Secondary,Technical,Coordi computing, often used the French word nators,Board of Education,Community,Staff bricolage to describe the kind of playful attitude Developer both children and scientists use to tinker, build, test, and rebuild their way to solving problems. Bricolage has the additional advantage (besides being cool sounding) of implying that you are using materials that you find around you – a very eco-green idea! Problem-solving in schools is typically taught as an analytical process with clear plans and steps, like the “scientific method.” But bricolage is clearly closer to the way real scientists, mathematicians and engineers solve problems. Sure, they make plans. But they also follow hunches, iterate, make mistakes, re-think, start over, argue, sleep on it, collaborate, and have a cup of tea. Bricolage encourages making connections, whereas School tends to like “clean” disconnected problems with clear, unambiguous step-by-step solutions. “For planners, mistakes are steps in the wrong direction; bricoleurs navigate through midcourse corrections. Bricoleurs approach problemsolving by entering into a conversation with their work materials that has more the flavor of a conversation than a monologue. ” – Papert & Turkle We want students to develop real fluency and literacy with how scientists, mathematicians and engineers really think – meaning a facility with technology that allows students to use it well and often to solve problems, do work, be creative, relax, or any other number of human Elementary,Middle,Secondary,Library,Technical, The Digital Media Festival web site.

Along the ordinators,Post-Secondary,Home School,Board way you’ll explore Reggio Emilia, Fab Labs, El of Education,Staff Developer Sistema, 826 Valencia and more. Each “idea” shares common principles of natural learning, creativity, child competence, collaboration,, apprenticeship, authentic tools , relevance, serendipity, beauty, respect and technology used to amplify human potential. Lessons learned en-route create productive contexts for learning where students construct the knowledge required for a rewarding life. Principles of effective project-based learning will be shared. Schooling has always been shaped by contemporary technology. Digital technology creates opportunities to learn what we have always expected of children, perhaps with greater efficacy, efficiency or comprehension. However, the real power lies in using the computers to learn new things in new ways that may have never been possible. The challenge for even the most imaginative schools is to sustain innovation. While the technology may catalyze changes in practice, ideas bigger than the technology create a productive context for sustaining innovative practice. This presentation will explore some of the best educational ideas in the world and demonstrate how they may support or require transformational computing activities. The big ideas may include: • Reggio Emilia • The Big Picture Schools • One Laptop Per Child • Constructionism • El Sistema, The Venezuelan Youth

There is no American with more direct Elementary,Middle,Secondary,Administrative,Co experience working in more 1:1 schools than ordinators,Post-Secondary,Home School,Board Gary Stager.

Twenty-one pivotal lessons will be shared with video-based examples and recommendations for sustaining innovation. This session is ideally suited for policy-makers, but touches on teaching, learning, curriculum, planning, policy, leadership and implementation issues. This presentation distills this unrivaled experience into a quick exposition of the lessons learned for professional development, planning and infrastructure, defining a vision, raising expectations, best teaching practices and bold imaginative classroom applications. The presenter will share successful and failed strategies from schools across the globe. He will also challenge some of the conventional wisdom regarding the rationale, expectations and implementation of 1:1 in schools today.

Just this past year, she was involved in a grant that gave her the opportunity to use the MyAccess software with her students. Because the PARCC Assessment for English will require students to compose essays on a computer, students will need to become accustomed to writing on a vertical screen (computer) as opposed to the horizontal page (paper). Sharon knows first hand how programs like Criterion and MyAccess, along with keyboarding practice, can help make this transition smoother. She will share her rich knowledge and insight into how to prepare students for computerized English assessments. Nancy Shaw has been teaching technology since 1995.
