iLab: The Use of iPads as a Digital Tool to Facilitate K-12 Student Literacy Achievement and Engagement
Limited Capacity seats available

Due to the continued expansion of standardized, computer-based assessments in K-12 education, it is essential that students are proficient in their ability to read in an electronic format. Additionally, there is an increased need to expose students to informational text literacy materials that assist in their development of college and career readiness skills. This presentation will provide participants with a comprehensive overview of a unique literacy initiative that utilizes iPads in a K-12 school to provide students with access to electronic literacy resources and the use of various digital tools to enhance their learning. Recent educational research and data on electronic reading will be discussed and how this instructional literacy approach impacts student reading achievement. Participants will acquire important knowledge about the use of iPads to enhance the reading achievement levels of students who have varying skill levels. Participants will receive practical instructional strategies and ideas on how to plan and implement an electronic reading initiative in which students utilize iPads and digital tools at the elementary, middle, and high school level. During the presentation, the presenter will provide all participants with an iPad to utilize that will be pre-loaded with electronic literacy materials including e-books, e-magazines, e-newspapers, and literacy digital tools.

iLab: Early and Often: A Daily Dose of Digital Ethics
Limited Capacity seats available

When we give students devices capable of connecting to each other and to the Internet, we are giving them powerful ways to share and interact. We are also giving them powerful ways to make mistakes and misbehave. One shot immunization from a rockstar speaker on digital citizenship no longer does the job of protecting students from their own mistakes and those of others. Our students need a daily dose of digital ethics, planned by their teachers, to teach or review ethical and behavioral issues that might arise in every lesson that involves online interactions. In this workshop, we will brainstorm “just in time” lessons in digital citizenship, and get ahead of the game so that students enter each project aware of the expectations and potential pitfalls. Participants will work in small groups to plan and discuss “just in time” lessons for their own school, and will leave with new ideas and resources for integrating digital ethics and citizenship into every lesson.

iLab: These Are Not Your Parents’ Robots:  Using Sphero in Your Classroom
Limited Capacity seats available

In this session, you will have the opportunity to learn about and play with Spheros, robots which connect via Bluetooth to iPad.

Today's classrooms look different. Classroom robots are now readily available, reasonably affordable, and easily implementable. Incorporating robots into a range of curricula at all age levels increases student engagement. Students can control robots and their interactions, greatly enhancing learning. Robots can also redefine the way content is created and used in the learning process.

Sphero is a robotic ball which can be controlled from iPad - either directly or through coding. A number of free apps are available for the Sphero, allowing students to control the robot through mazes, in games of tag, and as part of augmented reality.

Spheros can be incorporated throughout K-12 curriculum.  Students can learn about math and science as well as computer science. They can create art by painting with the Sphero or by making videos.  Spheros can be incorporated into the English/Language Arts classroom to give students experiential challenges similar to those faced by the people and characters in literature.  

In this session, we will overview how Spheros operate, let you try out some applications, and provide lesson plans for K-12 classrooms.

Be prepared for at least a few surprises.

iLab: How to Fully Integrate Digital Citizenship in Your School Community
Limited Capacity seats available

Our children do not see their online lives and their face-to-face lives as separate. All of their interactions - digital or in person - are part of one whole life. Educators have always taught students how to communicate and contribute positively in person; these same standards apply when our students communicate and contribute in the digital world.

Teaching students to present their real selves, develop online privacy and safety habits, and contribute meaningfully to our blended society is essential to educating the whole child. Therefore, digital citizenship should not be a special, separate lesson, unit, or event. Rather, it needs to be thoughtfully integrated into all content areas on an ongoing basis. This responsibility belongs to all educators.

We will demonstrate how to create an ongoing conversation with students, parents, and educators to build an fully integrated approach in our school community. As a group, we will explore the variety of topics that fall under the"digital citizenship" umbrella, and how they relate to content and lessons already taught across all disciplines. Participants will then experience simulations of lessons from varied content areas -- from World Languages to Math and Art -- in grades 6 through 12. These lessons will help develop participants' understanding of how to use this mindset in their own classroom and school communities.
