Technolgy in Lesson Plans and Data Collection

Setting up a data collection system to chart student progress that is easy. This presentation will review the stages of learning as it directly relates to intervals for data collection and methods to document the learning itself through pictures, sound and video. In addition I can show how to incorporate technology for lesson plan components to make the content relevant to to classroom and students with very little effort using apps such as KSL weather. I also have started using a Go Pro camera system for science and communication to teach perspective.
I will let the attendees have a chance to practice a little with each device and if time is available to create a simple lesson that would use the device to either provide information or data collection

Making the Common Core Uncommonly Exciting

The purpose of this session is to inspire participants to use the new Common Core standards as inspiration for exciting and high-level technology projects. While the standards are able to provide a clear understanding of what students need to learn, they do not tell you HOW the students should learn these standards. While each student is different, the desire to be engaged and to use creative outlets are common amongst them all. Pixie3 is the creative tool that we will use to engage learners and collaborate our way through the new standards.

Using Authentic NASA Data in the Classroom

One of the best things about NASA is that YOU own the data. As a federal agency, all NASA sponsored scientific data is made publicly available on the Internet. The trick is knowing where to find it and how to use it. In this session, we will look at some of the NASA online data nodes, the types and formats of data available, where to find free software that can read the data, and how to use this data to meet national science, math, and technology standards in your classroom. You'll also learn about NASA programs that allow you and your students to become actual scientists to collect and analyze your own data.
