Keynote: Creative Chaos and the #ImprovEducator
Giving students voice and choice in their learning is imperative, but with new technologies drastically changing the way our students learn and our classrooms operate, how do we as educators transition from sage on the stage to guide on the side? Often times, the idea of "straying from the script" can make teachers feel as if they are welcoming chaos into their classrooms. However, it is in those moments of "creative chaos" that true learning can take place. In this keynote, the audience will participate in an #ImprovEducator exercise following the 4 rules of improvisation. Through this balance of structure and creative flexibility, both students and teachers can learn to embrace the #ImprovEducator mindset into their teaching and learning.

Supporting Students with Dyslexia
“Dyslexia robs a person of time; accommodations return it.” - Sally Shaywitz.  Dyslexia is not indicative of one’s intelligence; and with the appropriate accommodations, students will be able to access grade level curriculum in the best way that they learn.  Classroom accommodations make it possible for students to learn and demonstrate their learning through full participation in classroom instruction independently.  

Attendees will leave this fast paced session with low or no cost iOS, PC/Mac, Chrome extension tools for immediate implementation to support all students in improving literacy skills, decrease behaviors and increase self esteem.

Reading E-Texts Successfully: What It Takes
Reading e-texts effectively and efficiently depends on mastery of a complex set of reading skills, study skills, and technical skills. Natasha Ploss and Sarah Powley collaborated to identify these skills and teach the technical skills specific to Chromebooks and the Honors Chemistry e- text to Natasha's students. The presenters conducted student surveys and extensively researched the field of reading comprehension as it relates to e-texts. 91% of the students reported that their ability to use e-texts improved because of what they learned. Individual teachers of all disciplines who use e-texts or are likely to use them in the future can benefit from understanding the complexity of reading e-texts and, beyond that, of reading online. A handout listing the reading and technical skills required to use e-texts successfully will be provided.

Do you ponder these questions: 1) What were our goals for investing in going 1:1, and 2) Are we meeting these goals?

What were your original goals for going 1:1?
1. To make scheduling on-line testing simpler.
2. To enhance instruction.
3. To provide technology for students as textbook companies move to on-line materials.
4. To equip our students with the most updated technology.
5. To allow our students the same technological opportunities as provided by other districts.
Did you meet your goals? How do you know?
What is a Technology Audit, and what does the data show?
Where do you go from here, now that you know what is happening with 1:1?

This breakout activity begins with a puzzle related to atomic numbers. Each puzzle along the way will lead participants to come up with combinations to locked boxes that reveal new activities including rock identification and a periodic table scavenger hunt. The final activity utilizes prism glasses and a poster of emission spectra to identify the correct fuel source. There is an option to incorporate Google Forms so that student groups can receive launch codes that reveal a hidden message.

12 Ready for Tomorrow Tips: Meaningful Formative Assessment with Technology
What does formative assessment look like in in today’s schools? It’s not about taking a test, it’s about gathering information in real-time to make sure the needs of all students are being met. This session provides actionable information to make formative assessment meaningful (so it counts), sustainable (so it lasts), and scalable (so everyone in your school does it too). This interactive session isn’t about the tools, but how you use them to gather data that tells a story of student learning. You’ll walk away practical tips to check for understanding with technology during whole class, small group, and individual lessons including ideas for assessing project-based and inquiry-based approaches and ways to evaluate data and communicate results with families.

In this session, we will reflect on year one and refresh our ILEARN understanding, better understand the importance of difficulty and complexity (DOK), and focus on best “tradigital” (traditional and digital) tools and strategies for success with assessment.

Reading E-Texts Successfully: What It Takes
Reading e-texts effectively and efficiently depends on mastery of a complex set of reading skills, study skills, and technical skills. Natasha Ploss and Sarah Powley collaborated to identify these skills and teach the technical skills specific to Chromebooks and the Honors Chemistry e- text to Natasha's students. The presenters conducted student surveys and extensively researched the field of reading comprehension as it relates to e-texts. 91% of the students reported that their ability to use e-texts improved because of what they learned. Individual teachers of all disciplines who use e-texts or are likely to use them in the future can benefit from understanding the complexity of reading e-texts and, beyond that, of reading online. A handout listing the reading and technical skills required to use e-texts successfully will be provided.

Hey ILEARN, I just want to take another look at you: Student Success with Assessment
We are far from the ISTEP now and an ILEARN Assessment was born. In year one we focused on understanding the new assessment and now with a year of the new assessment in the books, we need to better understand how to utilize teaching and learning to set our students and staff up for success. In this session, we will reflect on year one and refresh our ILEARN understanding, better understand the importance of difficulty and complexity (DOK), and focus on best “tradigital” (traditional and digital) tools and strategies for success with assessment. Maybe it’s not time to let the old ways die but it is time to find success for all with assessment.

Science Lock Box Activities
Have some fun in this interactive session while learning how to integrate math and earth science concepts with the periodic table. After participants crash-land on an alien planet, they must make their way through a series of puzzles to correctly identify the fuel source (mystery element) needed by their ship to transport them back home to Earth. This breakout activity begins with a puzzle related to atomic numbers. Each puzzle along the way will lead participants to come up with combinations to locked boxes that reveal new activities including rock identification and a periodic table scavenger hunt. The final activity utilizes prism glasses and a poster of emission spectra to identify the correct fuel source. There is an option to incorporate Google Forms so that student groups can receive launch codes that reveal a hidden message. Tips and tricks related to developing breakout activities for the classroom will be included, along with anecdotal information from our experiences using this activity in the middle school classroom.
