50. [ONLINE] Coding for Cowards - A Scratch Experience for the Interested Novice

Program: LHRIC - Instructional Technology (Model Schools Courses)

Dates: 10/7/2019

New
You're about to register for a 100% online course!

Many districts have taken a serious look at the role 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 course 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. Participants will actively engage in programming scenarios where they will become familiar with the Scratch 3.0 interface, commands, and basic coding concepts.

IMPORTANT NOTES: This course is 100% online. LHRIC Model Schools Courses utilize the Schoology Learning Management System. Upon registration, you will receive a welcome message from your instructor with information on how your course works, what you can expect, how to get help along the way, and steps you need to take in order to enroll.

This course begins on October 7. Participants will have until November 21 to successfully complete all modules, assignments and activities.

With whom should I share data? How do I know what data to share? How do I know what questions to ask? How do I know how to facilitate a conversation at a faculty meeting or what data points to include in a board presentation? If you have ever noticed data points that simply don't align with what is actually happening, how do you frame the story while maintaining confidence in the data?

Join our Clarity User Groups as we practice initiating and leading the core discussions around the CASE Framework. Brightbytes and LHRIC staff will facilitate hands-on scenarios and drills designed to increase your ability to identify meaningful data points using comparison and filters, and have productive conversations with peers, colleagues and constituents.

Dates: 10/24/2019

TO REGISTER FOR THIS WORKSHOP, PLEASE USE THE FOLLOWING LINK TO ENROLL AT ORANGE-ULSTER BOCES' SITE: CLICK HERE TO ENROLL

Educators teaching English Language Learners have the responsibility to ensure access to the most effective and appropriate learning environment. When an ELL student is struggling academically, educators need to understand the multiple and complex factors affecting a student's learning. Student behaviors observed may appear similar to characteristics of a disability and educators need to carefully rule out all factors that are not intrinsic to the individual. It is challenging to distinguish if language acquisition, cultural and linguistic diversity, gaps in learning or an actual disorder is at play. A multidisciplinary team must investigate, paying special attention to contexts and rule out systemic or external factors prior to making a referral.

In this workshop, participants will examine factors that must be considered when a student is at risk for referral to special education:
- What are the legal requirements of serving English Language Leaners?
- Who has knowledge of the process of second language acquisition and the linguistic background and history of the student?
- How does the quality of current classroom instruction and prior schooling experiences impact student performance?
- Are cultural dynamics or social-emotional resilience influencing interactions?
- How are interventions and assessments being utilized in decision making?
- What are the clinical markers of a disability and is there a deficit in the home language?

Registration/Sign-in: 8:30 am - 9:00 am
