Don't know where to start? Effective Lesson Planning with Technology
Do you have exciting technology in your classroom? Do you struggle with time for planning technology-rich lessons? Go beyond projecting an object with a visual presenter (aka document camera) or using an interactive whiteboard as an overpriced screen to integrating the technology into your lesson planning. Learn how visual presenters can add dimension and how students can actively use interactive whiteboards to learn. This presentation explores best practices for utilizing tools to engage students and accelerate learning. Examine sample lessons and discover how to examine them for effective technology use. A helpful checklist is used to evaluate tasks to make sure they are standards-based, engaging, problem-based and/or using technology to enhance academic achievement. Characteristics from the checklist are seen in lesson plans that successfully integrate technology. Learn steps to follow when planning to help decide when, how and if you will use technology tools. In addition, I will share resources to help you on your journey to a fully integrated classroom.

Class too big? Get Googled.
Because I had to teach 2 digital design classes with 40 students each this year, I had to come up with a solution on how to drive the class effectively in which my students could learn from my tutorials at their own pace, find resources, have their parents enjoy their work on blogs, receive emails from me (both parents and students), find resources and take quizzes on line, and still have my one on one interaction in class. The answer was google (google blogger, google gmail, youtube, google calendar, google documents, google picnik, google picasa and more. The platform I work on is Mac and my students are required to learn CS5 software, Final Cut, and all of the software that comes with a Mac. This is for Salt Lake Concurrent Enrollment and high school Art credit. I'm sure this style of teaching could work for any subject.

Geocaching: Mixing Technology and Your Curriculum
Geocaching is a worldwide recreational activity enjoyed by GPS users. It involves a GPS user hiding a "cache" and posting the exact coordinates so other GPS users can come on a "scavenger hunt" to find it. There are caches of all kinds for all ages and are usually placed in interesting locations in your area that you may not know about.
The concept of the game can be easily adapted as an engaging way to have students discover concepts and information in any curriculum. With a little work you’ve integrated technology, a little exercise, and whatever topic you want to explore, giving multiple ways to learn subject matter.
Use a ‘Multi-Stage Cache’ to test the comprehension of your students from the story your class just read; or perhaps you could have your students cooperatively solve a math puzzle to find the hidden container; or even peruse the ‘EarthCaches’ on Geocaching.com - caches from around the world based on various geology and earth sciences.

Using Prezi and Google Docs for Collaborative Curriculum Development
The presentation focuses on using Prezi.com as a format for collaborative curriculum mapping between teachers, in conjunction with Google Docs to create a shared database of teacher resources. Both Prezi and Google Docs are free, collaborative, and cloud-based. Using these tools in a synergistic way, educators can work together and share resources in real-time without the need to schedule face-to-face communication. The curriculum map we are developing in Prezi.com outlines a simple to follow visual representation of the Utah State Core. Each of the lesson summaries in the curriculum map have a resources section where shared docs are listed by file name and owner/creator. This allows any teacher that is added to the shared system access to a year-long curriculum flow with available resources to choose from. The strength in the project is the more people collaborate in it, the better it will become.

This is not a training on the "how-to's" of Google Docs or Prezi and assumes the participant is somewhat familiar with these programs.

A Hands-On Approach for Struggling Readers
Students with low reading abilities benefit from explicit instruction in phonemic awareness skills and encoding strategies. But how do we teach those skills in a real world setting? Practical, hands-on classroom activities that equip struggling readers with research-based strategies to improve their spelling, reading fluency, and literacy will be demonstrated.

Research has demonstrated that many struggling readers, including individuals who have dyslexia, have trouble breaking words down into letter-sound segments which, naturally, impedes their reading fluency and comprehension. But research has also revealed that these students “can learn these relationships with intensive phonics training” (Shaywitz, 2003).

Throughout the presentation, the presenter will provide an interactive experience where participants can apply the learned phonetic decoding strategies directly to reading activities and be given immediate feedback. Through these activities, the presenter will equip participants with methodology for their struggling readers that can be applied in the reading classroom.

The target audience of this presentation includes teachers, administrators, and family members who have a need to improve word-attack skills and increase reading fluency for their struggling readers.

Making the Common Core Uncommonly Exciting
From self-portraits to animated book trailers, learn to incorporate multimedia elements into classroom projects to engage learners and build essential communication skills.

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.

Goals for participant’s session experience:

1. explore examples of student projects that blend Common Core Standards, critical thinking skills, and 21st century communication.
2. learn how technology can engage learners in work that reaches the common core standards
3. leave with specific ideas and strategies to use when they return to their classrooms.

Engage Your Students with GPS!
THIS EVENT IS BY INVITATION ONLY
In Utah, 39% of students in 2011 were not proficient Geometry, scoring poorly on the concepts of calculation of area, perimeter, and slope. There is a need to present these concepts to many of our students in a new way.

Global Positioning System Receivers (GPSr’s) can be an effective and engaging technology tool to help your students understand these concepts and enable your students to experience math in their world in a new way. We will cover how to use a GPSr to find the area and perimeter of a location, calculate the slope of a hill (& the distance up that hill!), and even how to figure out the volume of water fall on your school campus during a rainstorm!

Not a math teacher, that’s OK! I will show you over 50 ways to integrate GPS into your instruction in any classroom.

We will discuss characteristics that sometimes prevent students from gaining deep, long-lasting understanding of math and science concepts, especially when working with computerized practice tools. I will demonstrate the features of a computer-based Intelligent Tutoring System that has been developed for geometry, and discuss how we’ve used this system to investigate student learning and identify problematic student behaviors and thinking during computer-supported mathematics practice. Finally, I will present practical implications from the research findings, both for geometry as well as other math and science domains.

Using Prezi and Google Docs for Collaborative Curriculum Development
The presentation focuses on using Prezi.com as a format for collaborative curriculum mapping between teachers, in conjunction with Google Docs to create a shared database of teacher resources. Both Prezi and Google Docs are free, collaborative, and cloud-based. Using these tools in a synergistic way, educators can work together and share resources in real-time without the need to schedule face-to-face communication. The curriculum map we are developing in Prezi.com outlines a simple to follow visual representation of the Utah State Core. Each of the lesson summaries in the curriculum map have a resources section where shared docs are listed by file name and owner/creator. This allows any teacher that is added to the shared system access to a year-long curriculum flow with available resources to choose from. The strength in the project is the more people collaborate in it, the better it will become.

This is not a training on the "how-to's" of Google Docs or Prezi and assumes the participant is somewhat familiar with these programs.
