7. Coding for Cowards: An Experience for the Interested Novice (@PNW BOCES)***RESCHEDULED***

Program: LHRIC - Instructional Technology (Model Schools Courses)

Dates: 5/4/2018

Most districts have taken a serious look at the role that coding exercises can play in developing computational thinking for K-12 students. Most of the highly popular coding environments (Scratch, Tynker, Code.org) are based on "building blocks" that make it easy to create interactive stories, animations, games, music and art. As students become immersed in coding work, they learn important mathematical and computational ideas, while also learning to think creatively, reason systematically, and work collaboratively.

This session is geared specifically for those who may not have a formal programming or computer science background, but are open to exploring how the thinking involved in coding can help enhance thinking across all disciplines. You will actively engage in programming scenarios where you will become familiar with the interface, commands, and basic protocols/commands of Scratch.

68. Feedback that Moves Writers Forward: Writer-Focused Feedback that Cultivates Writing - ELA

Program: CPDCS - 17-18 Literacy ELA

Audience: Grades K-12 teachers, literacy coaches, instructional coaches, teacher leaders, ELA supervisors, administrators and curriculum directors

Dates: 6/12/2018

Feedback, one of the most powerful tools in our teaching repertoire, can become even more effective when we first look to strengthen the writer's identity. So often feedback in writing focuses solely on the writing itself. Writing, however, is an act of confidence and so we must first offer feedback with the writer in mind-- this feedback, in turn, has a direct impact on the writing. Based on her newly released book, Patty will share many techniques that serve as more impactful alternatives to the red-pen, fix-it feedback most students are accustomed to receiving. Feedback, using these alternative approaches, result in joyful, invested, competent writers whose writing is powerful and inspirational.

Teachers will walk away with:

- Go-to strategies for giving nurturing, writer-focused feedback

- Structures and plans for giving feedback that students crave in time efficient ways

- Techniques for supporting agency and ownership so that the writer and their writing strengthens

81. Implementing 20% Time/Genius Hour into Your Classroom

Program: LHRIC - Instructional Technology (Model Schools Courses)

Dates: 7/10/2018 to 7/12/2018

New
20% Time is a simple concept that every teacher can execute successfully. The concept was taken from Google’s 20% Time model and applied within a K-12 educational setting. Students are given 20% of their time to work on student-designed projects, which align the curriculum with their passions to help to identify their career path. Under the guidance of their teacher, students create their own goals and assessments, which truly makes for a purposeful and collaborative classroom environment— a piece of the pie that made Google enterprises so successful!

20% Time provides students with more freedom over their learning, hence sparking curiosity and increasing innovation and intrinsic motivation. We will also discuss Genius Hour (for those that may not be ready to commit to 20% Time), where students explore new topics each week with several informal presentations at the end of the hour.

You will have the opportunity to learn from guest facilitators (invited by the LHRIC to share their innovative work), who have successfully implemented these concepts in their own classrooms.
