Using Cell Phones for Learning (Even When They Are Banned)
Stop fighting and start embracing the power of cell phones for learning by becoming aware of and ready to use many FREE cell phone tools such as Wiffiti, Poll Everywhere, Twitter, ChaCha, iPadio, Voki, group texting & more. Cell phones are student-loved devices that can be used to enhance learning.
Participants will:
-Learn a 5-Step progressive plan for using cell phones in education.
-Become aware of the effective uses of cell phones professionally.
-Learn how to strengthen the home-school connection.
-Become aware of how cell phones can be used for homework (even in schools where they are banned).
-Gain experience using the tools during the session.
-Take home a get started guide with links and steps for getting started with each of the free tools.
-Experience examples of effective AUP, permission letters, privacy and boundaries procedures, and successful classroom management plans for when cell phones are used in class.
-Understand how cell phone tools support research-based instructional strategies.
Leveraging technology that staff and students know and love is motivating for all.

More and more schools across the country are rewriting policy and providing professional development in order to harness the power of cell phones for teaching, and for learning. The result is increased communication, 21st century skill development, and enhanced lessons.

Avoiding the 'Sink or Swim' approach to technology use: Identifying and teaching concrete skills for success
Too often we assume students will have the necessary skills to use technology for writing, reading, and communication without ever having assessed or taught those skills. This session will highlight the process we have gone through to identify the specific skills students need to use technology effectively in schools and to systematically teach those skills. We will also talk about collecting performance data to see if your student is actually learning those critical skills!

The new 21st Century backpack for students is lightweight and powerful. What does it look like? Backpack + Kuno Android Student Device = 21st Century learning. With the wealth of resources on the web and textbooks transitioning to a digital format, how do districts disseminate and organize content to meet the needs of students?

In addition, see how easy it is for teachers to push this individualized content down to their KUNO student android devices. The student device stores information locally, allowing students to access class resources from anywhere- even when Internet access is not available. Only the student′s individualized course materials (and other teacher-approved apps and resources) can be accessed from his/her KUNO. District IT administrators will love being able to control and manage these KUNO student devices remotely from anywhere.
