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.

If you don’t bring your laptop or have no experience with ActivInspire – this workshop is not for you.

Teaching 21st Century Skills Digital Citizenship with The.News and You.Edit
THIS EVENT IS BY INVITATION ONLY
Help your students be informed about their world using the PBS student authoring tool the.News and the online student authoring tool You.Edit. These two tools allow students access to current event information for teens at home, in the classroom, and in out-of-school time. The.News uses journalism and video to tell topical and relevant stories about subjects of interest. It is a noncommercial, multi-platform tool designed to help teens acquire the knowledge and skills to become better citizens of the 21st century.

The accompanying tool, You.Edit allows students to mash up all the elements of PBS videos with their own original productions, provides teachers with many open ended prompts to encourage project-based constructivist teaching, and allows teachers to have classes and even to invite members.

Using journalism and technology, the.News provides educators with content specific tools while also helping them meet the civic mission of schools. An instructional design informs video and curricular content, targeted to middle and high school students, to support social studies, language arts and science learning objectives, as well as critical thinking and media literacy. Each video story is supported by lesson plans with content-based standards, discussion questions, student activities, vocabulary and primary references. The material is presented as options to fit teachers’ instructional needs and is accompanied by professional development resources.
