Wednesday April 24, 2019 Room: Geography Room, Marriott Marquis 2:15-3:30 OR 3:45-5:00 NCEA 2019: Extending a Child's Curiosity for Learning with Digital Portfolios, Robots, and QR Codes Early Childhood students are incredibly curious as problem solvers and creative thinkers who love to share what they do. Learn to use the Seesaw digital portfolio to assist students in capturing and sharing their learning beyond the classroom walls- even if they are pre-readers. Bee-Bot robots are designed for young children to learn to code. They bring fun, excitement, critical thinking and collaboration into the classroom. Major benefits of coding include teaching critical decision-making, cause and effect and providing a sense of empowerment while creating something from scratch. During this session you will learn to integrate Bee-bots into all content areas while documenting your learning in Seesaw. You will see how QR codes can support student learning in a variety of subject areas. Bring back multiple ways to integrate your student's curiosity with the technology you have in your classroom. It would be helpful to download the Seesaw Learning Journal app to a cell phone or iPad for this session. It can also be accessed on a laptop or Chromebook.

ISTE 2017: Creating, Analyzing and Sharing Teacher Feedback Using Google Forms [ISTE Leadership Playground - Parkview Playground C]
Tuesday, June 28, 11:00 am - 12:00 pm (Table 5)
Empower the teachers and administrators in your district or building to share the story they have to tell. With busy and conflicting schedules, it can be difficult to understand how successes and failures are being experienced by others. It is so important to let the larger group benefit from hidden knowledge. Google Forms can assist you in asking questions, analyzing results, and sharing the results to generate conversations. If you’ve always wanted to create a Google Form, you can give it a try here. There will be samples of Google Forms, examples of the data generated by forms, and explanations of how those forms empowered teachers and administrators to have conversations in leading change within a single school building and across schools in a district. Combined with Google add-ons forms can be turned into documents and saved as PDFs. Brought into Google Sheets with conditional formatting that can illuminate patterns. Within a Google Classroom, teachers and principals can leave commentary on the patterns they see in the data.
The resource is a Google Doc with links to sample forms and data as well as YouTube videos on how to set up a Google Form and use the Save As Docs add-on.
