Be Proactive: Using SEL and Digital Citizenship to prevent Digital Drama
Limited Capacity seats available

We know that meeting social & emotional needs of students is critical to academic success—students learn better when they feel heard, valued, & respected. Sadly, as students increasingly value online connections, many schools are ill-equipped to teach crucial SEL skills needed for students to succeed. Join Common Sense education as we explore unique ways schools can use digital citizenship and our new SEL toolkit to create an engaging learning environment.

Workshop objectives:
1)Learn about how digital citizenship and SEL resources can be used to strengthen your school culture. 
2) Practice using conversations and dialogue to create a kind online community in and out of school.

Code a Mail Merge
Limited Capacity seats available

Lauren uses mail merge nearly every week to keep up with communication between herself, students, and parents. 

Attendees would walk away with the skills to build their own mail merge that would allow them to email all of their students and parents personalized emails using the code. In the code, you write a fill in the blank email message that uses variables to fill in the blanks. The variable values are stored in a spreadsheet and the code runs on the spreadsheet to send all the emails at once. Generally, I am able to send ~300 personalized emails in about 5 minutes.


This tutorial would benefit teachers using G Suite products who want to improve their communication with parents and students.  Or are interested in using computer science in their every day life.

Engaging Assessment Using Screencasting and Flipgrid
Limited Capacity filling up

Learn how to turn your students into the teachers when you want them to showcase what they know. We will learn how to use Screencastify (a free Chrome extension) to capture their computer screen, their face, and voice all at the same time as they explain a concept, show you their work, do a explanation of a close reading, explain how they did a math problem, etc... The applications for Screencastify are endless.  After, we will take our Screencastify recordings and upload them to a Flipgrid. Flipgrid is a place to curate all your student's work for a project on one site in which they can easily view all their peers' work and comment, "like", or leave an emoji response for their peer.  Teachers can do the same and more.

I will share two of my favorite technology tools, used together. First, I will introduce the Walking Classroom, a podcast device loaded with standard based lessons. The cool part? You will actually get out of your classroom and walk! This tool is wonderful because it combines PE with your lesson, so no "additions" but "instead". The second tool I will introduce is the MicroBit. As a group, we will block-code a step counter and use them while trying a podcast from the Walking Classroom. Important: Please wear walking shoes and bring a Chromebook or computer (USB access).
