Vamp Up Vocab Instruction
Rudyard Kipling believed that "Words are, of course, the most powerful drug used by mankind." Let’s help our students harness that power of vocabulary. We can level-up our vocabulary instruction to inspire and motivate our students in the classroom. Instructional practices including Digital BreakoutEDU, FlipHunt & Headbandz (to name a few) can be embedded into classroom routines to engage, encourage and enliven our lessons.

Using Online Simulations to Deepen Understanding
How do you determine if that website is a quality simulation? Does it truly promote inquiry or do students always get the same results? We will compare different online simulations for science and math (like PhET) and explore complete lessons ready for you to use immediately. While hands on experience is best, it is not always practical or possible due to budgetary reasons or because phenomena take place on the micro or atomic scale. Computer simulations can help fill this gap by allowing students to manipulate variables and experiment in ways that they never could before.

Model, Communicate, Collaborate in Math
In order to build conceptual knowledge of mathematics, students need to use physical manipulatives and create visual models. They need to communicate their reasoning and collaborate with peers. How does technology fit into this? Learn to leverage Google Suite and Seesaw to digitally document low tech modeling, provide a platform for written justifications, and foster peer teaching in digital collaborative spaces.

ClEvR Lab Reports Using Video
Labs are extremely important in any science class. Students should be able to share what they have learned in that experiment, but that doesn't mean that students must always write a full formal lab report. In this session, you will learn a creative way for students to demonstrate what they have learned from the lab by creating a quick and easy video featuring a ClEvR argument (Claims, Evidence, and Reasoning). Students will be practicing their Common Core speaking and listening skills, the four Cs, and communicating their learning in modalities other than just writing.
