Keynote: #YouHadOneJob
Remember what it felt like the very first time you stepped into the classroom? Why did you want to become a teacher in the first place?

Students & Technology

The digital age that we live in has altered the playing field for adults who supervise children. This generation of teachers and parents are trying to understand and control the content that is consumed and created by young learners. Many are not equipped with the tools or knowledge required to navigate this digital mine field.

In this session, we will examine Digital Citizenship, Addiction and Privacy and also offer suggestions to help both parents and teachers. This will be of interest to all attendees.

Google for School leaders
  • What does it mean to be a Google school?

    • We start from the basics and take a high level look at what it means to be a Google school

    • We explain how Google Apps for Education works, what Apps are included in the ‘core suite’ and what other ‘non core’ Google Apps you can use

    • We cover a lot of basic stuff to be sure all attendees are starting from the same level such as: Do you need a Google Server? Can you use Google in your school if you are running on a MS base? Do all students need an account on your domain? Can one teacher run Google Classroom if we are not a Google School? etc. etc.

  • How can Google help me and our leadership team in our jobs?

    • This is where we get into Forms, shared Docs, research, etc. We focus in on the best practices for using Google Drive and Docs specifically for school management with specific examples of using forms, spreadsheets and more

    • We also look at using Google tools for:

      • Leadership teams

      • Accreditation (for example by CIS WASC and NEASC which is something schools go through every 5 and 10 years and with Google Apps this process has become much more efficient and effective)

      • Work flows, meeting minutes

      • Structure and Google Drive folder expectations and protocols

Why Start From Scratch?

Scratch, the free program from MIT, is a great tool for students and adults with all levels of coding experience to explore. This programing tool allows for students to learn coding skills using visual blocks to help them along the way. Students will be able to learn a few basic codes and be able to transform the outcome of their learning. They can make stories come to life, create video games, produce animation, and even remix a project that is currently on the site. I will take you through setting up an account to creating your first program using a Sprite. Even if you have experience with Scratch, come and explore, learn new ideas and share ones you have already used.

Robotics and Coding in the Classroom

This session is meant to show teachers that anyone can code and how important coding should be in your classroom.  It will also introduce a variety of different robots that teachers can use to teach their students how fun it is to have their coding skills translate into something that they can guide and see in action.  Teaching students how to overcome challenges through coding and robots not only gives them the skill of learning to code but also the attitude that 21st Century learners need, the attitude that making mistakes is the way to learn!

Keynote: Moonshot Thinking - Failure IS an Option
I’m a big believer that we should be consciously teaching students to fail. Society tells us that failure is bad, but if you ask successful people what they learned most from you’ll always get a similar answer - “my mistakes.”

Google Docs for Creating Digital Content
Advances in educational technology have made a huge impact on teaching and learning in the classroom and benefitted both teachers and students in multiple ways. Technology makes it easier to present difficult concepts to students, makes learning enjoyable and makes collaboration more effective. It also makes it easier for students to engage in mobile learning by allowing them to access material in class, at home and on school trips.

Creating content is a powerful tool to improve student learning. Students are thrilled when they are allowed to tell their stories. They show great enthusiasm and are highly motivated when they are asked to create videos and presentations.

So how can we use educational technology to help students to create digital content to improve their learning?

My session introduces a quick and easy way for you or your students to produce an eBook. You will learn to use Google Docs to create content and publish in a format easy to read on a phone, tablet or an eBook reader. This will be a hands-on session ideal for beginners.

This session will introduce teachers to the concept of using minidrones and coding to excite their students and add a new dimension to using robots and coding. Similar to my other session this one will focus on using Scratch type block coding (Tynker and Tickle) to control drones and complete tasks.  For the first 20 min I will introduce the concepts behind using these nimble little drones in class and how to incorporate them into your curriculum.  For the rest of the session you will have a chance to complete a task and learn, first hand, how fun and engaging these devices can be in the hands of your students.

Stop Motion is a great, creative option for students when showing understanding and learning. Students can create stories, artwork, demonstrate a science project, recreate a famous event, and learn the art of patience. Stop Motion can take time, but using small movements to create still images that appear to have motion can be rewarding when completed. In this hands on session, you will learn some of the different types of stop motion and be given time to create your own Stop Motion Animation. iPads will be available, but if you have an iPad, please bring it to this session to download and use the apps yourself.

Augmented Reality in the Classroom - Using Blippar and Aurasma
Augmented Reality (AR) is one of many buzz words in the tech world, with games like Pokemon Go being massively popular amongst most students. AR is an enhanced version of reality created by the use of technology to overlay digital information on an image of something being viewed through a device. With Pokemon Go your smartphone's GPS signal is used to detect your location. As you walk around, your avatar is overlaid on a real-world map, along with in-game content and there are constant rewards for being in different areas and walking to different places.

Can this enthusiasm be recreated in schools? Can AR turn create game-like excitement? Or add videos and sound to all displays? Give individualised feedback to students?

This session will introduce you to two tools "blippar" and "Aurasma". You will see how easy it is to create AR in your classroom and around your school. We will run through how students can easily access these tools, how to set up your own AR and different ways in which it can be used to enhance classroom learning.

However, if you have ever announced to a class of young learners that you are planning a robotics module, you will see a very different reaction. With this session, I hope to give teachers an easy and accessible start to robotics. We will build, control and program a Lego Mindstorms robot from scratch. After this introductory course, you will have developed confidence to introduce this topic into your classroom.

This session will introduce the site cospaces.io and how it can allow students to create their own VR worlds.  Open up a whole new way for students to express themselves and present their knowledge.  Cospaces can be used to reimagine any type of visual presentation style.  Imagine allowing students to create a poster that you can walk into and explore or having them create a 3d module of a molecule that they can view in VR?  Alone with this ability to build worlds students can also use Blockly coding skills to bring the world to life!
