    Audience: Teachers, Administrators

    Dates: 7/22/2020 to 8/5/2020

    New
    In order to fully understand the complex challenges facing our society, we must understand the roles of race and racism, and the ways in which they intersect to impact teaching and learning in K-12 schools. In this five-session leadership series, participants will explore issues of race, social justice, and equity as they work to improve their practice to promote equity for all children. Participants will be exposed to critical theories and practical strategies and will apply those frameworks to a local problem of practice. The goal of the Institute is to take participants on a personal equity journey while simultaneously reflecting upon the impact participants have on others as it relates to ensuring success for all students.
    Institute participants will:


    • Reflect and challenge themselves and one another to examine personal beliefs and practices about teaching and learning.


    • Examine and explore how implicit bias and internalized racism influences their perspectives on leadership.


    • Develop an understanding of critical race theory, racial identity development, anti-racist pedagogy, culturally relevant and sustaining pedagogies - and the implications for teaching all students.


    • Learn and practice strategies to initiate, navigate, and sustain conversations about race, racism, and anti-racism with colleagues, families, and students.


    • Push themselves towards becoming comfortable being uncomfortable in order to engage in authentic dialogue about the impact of race in PreK-12 education.


    • Identify and leverage leadership, teaching, and learning practices that advance equity.


    • Adopt an anti-racist approach to realizing racial equality in our schools


    • Leave with an action plan for interrupting racism personally, professionally, and institutionally. Up to 20 CTLE credits available Bundled pricing available. Contact Dr. Mary Elizabeth Wilson, Sr. D

    New
    Technology in learning is only as good as the instructional practices that surround it. However, there are digital tools that are designed in such a way as to promote effective teaching strategies intrinsically and when implemented, tend to generate positive learning outcomes when paired with thoughtful and instructionally-based measures. The selection of software is primarily an instructional decision, but in many cases is influenced by various stakeholders and factors (financial, technical, operational). In this session, participants will explore ways to make sound decisions about software and digital tools from an individual teacher, as well as district, standpoint.
    By the end of this session, participants will:
    - Develop a lens for evaluating the potential effectiveness of software and digital tools.

    39. TLI/NYSCATE: Creating a Culture of Privacy in the Age of EdLaw 2d

    Program: LHRIC - Technology Leadership Institute (TLI)

    Dates: 7/22/2020 to 12/16/2020

    Since 2013, over 130 new student privacy laws have passed in 41 states, with more bills and regulations being rolled out each year that include many new requirements for educators and administrators to implement. Some state laws include the threat of jail or large fines when school staff even unintentionally violate student privacy.

    This massive shift in the legal landscape, including the introduction of New York's Education Law 2-d and Part 121 regulations, makes it hard for schools and districts to keep up. This isn't only a legal problem. As technology changes and the amount of information schools collect and maintain increases, ensuring that new educators and administrators come into their schools with the skills needed to adequately protect student privacy in their day-to-day work is extremely challenging. Districts, edtech service providers, and other stakeholders still have many unanswered questions around student privacy rules. We will cover the history of student privacy laws and regulations, requirements for schools and companies.

    Participants will learn the essentials for creating a culture of privacy, review the policies, training and communications around privacy that already exist in your learning environment, and plan next steps to educate all stakeholders on their role in protecting student privacy. This is part of a program initiated by the Future of Privacy Forum (FPF), a Washington, DC-based think tank that seeks to advance responsible data practices. The forum is led by Internet privacy experts and includes an advisory board comprised of leading figures from industry, academia, law, and advocacy groups. For more information, visit www.fpf.org. This Future of Privacy Forum initiative aims to multiply on-the-ground student privacy support in the rapidly-evolving regulatory landscape

    Audience: Teachers, Administrators

    Dates: 7/24/2020

    New
    Without the students, the school is just an empty building. Without the students, virtual learning is as good as a blank lesson plan. Establishing classroom culture begins with the teacher, but does not truly develop until the students are present.

This not only helps build trusting relationships, but also provides a point of entry to connect lessons to the things that the students find interesting and enjoyable. During this course, participants will explore ways to create a virtual environment of respect and rapport by building relationships, ensuring student safety, setting clear expectations, engaging students in meaningful learning experiences and discussions, and having fun!
    By the end of this session, participants will:
    - Develop classroom rules and expectations for digital etiquette in synchronous and asynchronous environments.
    - Develop a plan for getting to know students and building community.

Let's bring back the flipped classroom model: the students learn online through videos, and "face-to-face" time is repurposed and used effectively! We cannot go back to the way teaching used to be- we need to transform what teaching looks like and use our "facetime" more efficiently.
