Bring Coding to Your ES Classroom
There is significant momentum in education today to teach coding.  As with anything that we add into the curriculum we are faced with questions of:


  • How does this enhance learning?

  • Does it fit into my school’s standards?  

  • How do I get started?


This session will focus on these questions. The session will be geared towards participants with varied levels of coding ability (beginners are welcome) who work with kids from K-6. Participants will learn how to get started teaching coding to elementary kids and how to use it to enhance what is already being taught. Participants will look at the benefits of teaching coding to elementary kids. There will be unplugged learning activities to introduce coding concepts as well as hands on learning opportunities to work with Scratch, Scratch Jr and Beebots. By the end of the session you will have enough knowledge of coding to begin integrating it into your teaching, opening creative doors for your students like never before.

Creative Agency in the Connected Classroom
Welcome to Creative Agency in the Connected Classroom.  The link to the 44 prompts to start connecting with other classrooms/experts is here.
Our slide deck is available here.



DESCRIPTION
In no other era of education have schools had the opportunity to do more than they can do right now. Do students in our classes know and understand how much power and influence they can have within their community? As often as possible, schools need to prompt students (and teachers) to remember and consider this phrase: you are needed.

What happens when we reimagine learning to be the catalyst for real-time change?
Can students curate digital poetry to connect across continents?
Can entire schools collaborate on music videos from oceans apart?
Can classes debate, and bring awareness to global concerns by co-authoring podcasts?
How could global design showcases finance Kiva loans?
Can you and your students use your blogs to benefit of others?
Do your students have access to authentic clients who will put their creativity to good use?

The session will be highly collaborative, and will ask you to engage in creative work. By the end, you have built a bridge which extends from your context outwards. We hope you’ll be sure to invite other L2 participants to cross that bridge too.
View trailer for this session here
POSSIBLE OUTCOMES




  • Rethink what student leadership could look like in your context



  • Develop/utilize social media as a platform for change



  • Add to your toolbox of creative tools



  • Refamiliarize yourself with the ‘student perspective’ on collaborative activities



  • Examine a number of existing models to remix, recycle, or repurpose



  • Workshop visual note taking as well as at least one of the following:



  • Workshop podcast creation



  • Workshop GarageBand



  • Workshop iMovie



  • Workshop an array of free design tools

Rebrand Teaching

Participants will leave this session with a solid understanding of how branding and ReBranding relates to the learners in their communities. This session will enable teachers to help students create a positive digital footprint by modelling the development of their own brand identity.

In doing so, participants will have the opportunity to explore a variety of the following experiences:

Rebrand Yourself

  • contribute to a collective #ReBrandTeaching Magazine. Please bring a small prop of something that represents you outside of ‘teaching’. We will take photos in order to see teachers as more than their role in schools
  • create a personally branded website using About me
  • create a personal brand or ReBrand on social media

Understanding Branding in the Classroom

  • strategize how to bring a deeper understanding of the purpose of branding into the classroom
  • develop activities for students to understand branding – and how advertising and branding is impacting their daily lives
  • explore current examples of kids who have successfully branded themselves – explore how they tell their story

Student Leadership for Student Learning

What is the one topic that you most love to teach? Imagine yourself preparing to teach a lesson on this topic. Bioethics, magical realism, guerrilla warfare, environmental sustainability...that topic that captivates you to such an extent that you devote an abundance of passion and thought to sculpting your lesson objectives, scrounging for resources and preparing a lesson so fun and engaging that you can infuse your students with your passion.

Now, stop- and reimagine a student doing all of those things instead. How does it change the lesson dynamic, student engagement and, most importantly, student learning?

Though letting go of control and putting students in charge can seem scary, in this session we will examine the potential of student leadership in curricular and cocurricular contexts for enhancing authentic and experiential learning opportunities. Moreover, we will look at the tools and methods we can use as teachers to guide and support effective student-led projects. We will review examples of student-lead lessons, workshops for youth and adults, as well as community research and service projects to investigate opportunities for and methods to empower students to take greater control over their own contextualized learning experiences.

20% Time: An Action Research Analysis
Limited Capacity seats available

Throughout the 2015-2016 school year, we conducted action research on the effects of 20% time with 4th grade students. Specifically, we explored the following question: How does self-directed learning affect student attitudes and dispositions?

In this workshop, we'll examine the quantitative and qualitative data that came out of that action research: what went well, what didn't and what changes might be considered moving forward.

We will also strive to share and co-ideate potential models for personalized learning based the outcomes you hope for it to achieve. 

If you cannot make it to the workshop, but would like to learn about the action research data, please check out www.self-directedlearning.com to find out more.

Admin, WTF? (Where's the fun?)
Limited Capacity filling up

"Don't do as I do; do as I say." I used to say this to my students when I goofed up during coaching or even giving a speech in debate and would do the exact same thing that I tell them NOT to do. As coaches we expect our students to run faster, climb higher, keep up stamina far better than we do with the proper techniques; as educators, we do our best to teach our students to not bore the audience, share engagingly, ask the "So What?" in everything that they do. Let's pause and reflect: do we do that as leaders? What do we do with inspired and excited teachers when the come back from empowering conferences with big ideas? What can we do to keep that momentum strong despite the requirements of rigorous curriculum demands by programs that sound super intimidating with myriad acronyms? What are we afraid of? Come explore ways to find a balance between what we know is awesome and what we feel we must do in the current structure of education that places emphasis on the prestige of traditional programs. Let's try to do what makes sense, empowering our teachers to run faster, climb higher and not lose steam… and do it with them.

Developing a Great MakerSpace: Choosing the Fast Path!
Limited Capacity filling up

Much that has been written about the advantages of MakerSpaces within schools. Unfortunately, the common advice tends to encourage a path to development that uses phrases like "grassroots movement," "growing over time," and "slow and steady." With Papert's Theory of Constructionism (1980) approaching its 40th anniversary, haven't we (educators, students, and parents) waited long enough? In this workshop, participants will learn the story of how one school went from initial discussion to full implementation of a MakerSpace within 8 months. Participants will learn strategies for: starting discussions, building enthusiasm, developing vision, reaching (enough) consensus, designing a space, equipping a MakerSpace, designing curriculum, and addressing logistical implications.

From Traditional Research Paper to Documentary Film
Limited Capacity seats available

We live in a world saturated with multi-modal text forms. The recent technological revolutions in video recording, editing, and distribution have signaled the greatest evolution in literacy in 500 years. And yet we are not totally conversant with the media forms of the day. So we must ask ourselves: Are we as literate as the world demands?

In this presentation Literacy Coach Tara Lee Ronzetti and English As an Additional Language Specialist, Jason Stevens will share how one fourth grade transformed the traditional research paper into a multi-sensory and multi-modal presentation: documentary video.
Participants will watch our story from start to finish and have the opportunity to learn from our mistakes. We will share the teaching points that created the core of the unit, the pace, and surprises we ran into along the way. Teachers will practice some of the skills their students will learn in a unit like this.

Information Overload: Using online curation tools to make sense of and leverage the power of your social media network.
Limited Capacity seats available

The abundance of information available through your online PLN can be overwhelming. Curating content allows users to make sense of the links and resources you may come across via your PLN. Researchers studying curation of digital content have noted that being able to make sense of the vast information online for students and adults alike is a new literacy that needs to be taught in schools. Shirky (2010) states, “the job of curation is to synchronize a community so that when they’re all talking about the same thing at the same time, they can have a richer conversation than if everybody reads everything they like in a completely unsynchronized or uncoordinated way.”

Interactive instructional videos allow teachers to “flip” the classroom without burying the student in homework. They also allow for quick informal assessment and feedback. Best of all, it is quick and easy, without the need for technical skills or spending a long time marking papers. Students get quick feedback, and teachers can easily identify students who are struggling, or concepts that need reinforcement.

This will be a hands-on session, so participants should bring a laptop or tablet, a gmail account, and bookmark a short video- either from an online source like YouTube, or bring one of their own making. Teachers will leave the session with an online interactive video relevant to their own classroom.

Reimagining Storytelling with Collaborative Teams
Limited Capacity seats available

This session highlights how grade level teams at Korea International School use collaborative time to build transdiscliplinary units. We'll start by hearing from administrators and staff why and how this time is important and how collaborative time is structured into the day that is purposeful and productive.

Following this, we'll see how a sixth grade team used meeting time to creative a digital story across multiple disciplines. Entitled: "Myths and Legends", students learned about myths in Social Studies, wrote fictional essays in English, connected their stories to Science concepts, and used digital tools to create multimedia stories complete with sound effects and narration that supports common core standards (CCSS)

If you're interested in creative collaborative projects in teams or departments, or want to "fine tune" work that you currently do in teams, this session is for you. I'll be sharing resources such as rubrics and "how to guides" on Imovie and Google Classroom to manage student work.

The power of connections to support emergent bilinguals: SPELTAC (Social Platform for English Language Teaching Across the Curriculum)
Limited Capacity seats available

Supporting emergent bilinguals and English language learning is one of the most important constants of our work as international educators. 'We are all language teachers' will sound familiar to many. Yet, how do we sustain and differentiate professional development for English language teaching across the curriculum in international schools? How can we continue the conversation about how to support all learners who are learning on a bilingual continuum? Do traditional 'sit-and-get' models of professional development really serve this part of our work or should this be an ongoing part of educators' learning, one that is constantly explored, revisited and strengthened?

For the 2016/2017 school year the International School of Phnom Penh (ISPP) has opted for an in-house training model that leverages social media and documentation for learning as professional development for language teaching across the curriculum. SPELTAC, Social Platform for English Language Teaching Across the Curriculum, is an innovative model of professional learning that extends cross-curricular English language teaching practices in the context of 21st century learning. This session will explain how SPELTAC has the potential to facilitate collaborative learning, model and enthuse teachers to implement 21st century literacy practices, make visible what is needed in a school, celebrate growth and achievement and create institutional memory.

The Why and How of Standards Based Grading (SBG)
Limited Capacity seats available

Suppose a student has earned a 75 in your class. How do you describe that student's progress? What has that student learned in your class? Obviously a student with an 85 has done better than the student with a 75, but what exactly has the 85 student achieved that the other student has not? Is it ten percent more understanding? Two more homework assignments during the quarter? Perhaps most importantly, what can the 75 student do to become an 85 student?

Grades are part of our school culture and likely aren't going anywhere soon. We can work to tweak how we generate and communicate the meaning of those grades in a way that better represents what students have actually learned.  One approach for doing this is called Standards Based Grading, or SBG.

In this one hour workshop, you will learn about SBG and how it can clarify the meaning of grades, as well as how it can be implemented effectively within a traditional reporting system. You will also learn how a SBG mindset encourages productive changes to the process of planning units, activities, and assessments. We will also discuss the ways such a system can be run in the context of various subject areas.

Creative Agency in the Connected Classroom
Welcome!
The link to the list of 44 prompts to connect beyond the walls of your classroom is here.
Our slide deck is available here.

DESCRIPTION
In no other era of education have schools had the opportunity to do more than they can do right now. Do students in our classes know and understand how much power and influence they can have within their community? As often as possible, schools need to prompt students (and teachers) to remember and consider this phrase: you are needed.

What happens when we reimagine learning to be the catalyst for real-time change?
Can students curate digital poetry to connect across continents?
Can entire schools collaborate on music videos from oceans apart?
Can classes debate, and bring awareness to global concerns by co-authoring podcasts?
How could global design showcases finance Kiva loans?
Can you and your students use your blogs to benefit of others?
Do your students have access to authentic clients who will put their creativity to good use?

The session will be highly collaborative, and will ask you to engage in creative work for a cause. By the end, you have built a bridge which extends from your context outwards. We hope you’ll be sure to invite other L2 participants to cross that bridge too.
View the trailer for this session here.
POSSIBLE OUTCOMES




  • Rethink what student leadership could look like in your context



  • Develop/utilize social media as a platform for change



  • Add to your toolbox of creative tools



  • Refamiliarize yourself with the ‘student perspective’ on collaborative activities



  • Examine a number of existing models to remix, recycle, or repurpose



  • Workshop visual note taking as well as at least one of the following:



  • Workshop podcast creation



  • Workshop GarageBand



  • Workshop iMovie



  • Workshop an array of free design tools

Student Leadership for Student Learning
All resources available here: http://bit.ly/2dLKbw0

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OP3ZyOaWgIE

What is the one topic that you most love to teach? Imagine yourself preparing to teach a lesson on this topic. Bioethics, magical realism, guerrilla warfare, environmental sustainability...that topic that captivates you to such an extent that you devote an abundance of passion and thought to sculpting your lesson objectives, scrounging for resources and preparing a lesson so fun and engaging that you can infuse your students with your passion.

Now, stop- and reimagine a student doing all of those things instead. How does it change the lesson dynamic, student engagement and, most importantly, student learning?

Though letting go of control and putting students in charge can seem scary, in this session we will examine the potential of student leadership in curricular and cocurricular contexts for enhancing authentic and experiential learning opportunities. Moreover, we will look at the tools and methods we can use as teachers to guide and support effective student-led projects. We will review examples of student-lead lessons, workshops for youth and adults, as well as community research and service projects to investigate opportunities for and methods to empower students to take greater control over their own contextualized learning experiences.

Facebook, Twitter or Tumblr accounts can be set up for the school's councillor to help students who are in need for advice.
