Audience: Librarians, Teachers, Administrators

Dates: 12/3/2020

SWBOCES School Library System will host a meeting to learn more about ways we can engage all students through daily nonfiction articles with News-O-Matic. With the increase of hybrid and distance learning, media literacy is more important than ever. This brings new pedagogical challenges, but it also presents an opportunity to further integrate media literacy into the curriculum. Here are the five areas we will focus on:



•Media Literacy: News-O-Matic, an educational resource that publishes nonfiction stories for grades K-8, has teamed up with the National Association for Media Literacy Education (NAMLE) to offer recommendations for educators to promote media literacy within the topics of ELA, Science, STEM, Social Studies, SEL, and current events. Students need to be able to distinguish between fact and fiction, as well as understand how to identify sources and their credibility when they encounter new information while learning remotely.



•ELL: News-O-Matic has a translation feature in four different languages (English, Spanish, French & Arabic) along with a "Read to Me" feature available to students by a native speaker, not the traditional computerized voice.



•Differentiated Instruction: Each article is available in 3 different Lexile levels to meet the needs of all students.



•Blended Learning: Whether they are learning remotely or in a classroom News-O-Matic is available via web or EDU app



•Gamification: Short games and a puzzle help encourage students to learn while keeping them engaged.


We look forward to showing you why News-O-Matic won the 2020 Teachers Choice Award! Russell Kahn (News-O-Matic Editor in Chief) will share media literacy education tips to allow for a seamless transition across teaching formats.

Keynote: USING BLENDED LEARNING MODELS TO DESIGN AND FACILITATE LEARNING FOR A CONCURRENT CLASSROOM
The concurrent classroom presents several challenges. It's tough to meet the needs of students in class and online simultaneously. Often, there is an inequality of teacher attention, students struggle to stay engaged, and learning experiences do not maximize face-to-face and online learning affordances. When teachers rely exclusively on a whole group, teacher-led model, these challenges are exacerbated. Teachers can combat the challenges associated with the concurrent classroom by using blended learning models to prioritize differentiated small group and personalized 1:1 instruction, give students agency, and shift control over the pace of learning to students.
