1. Celebration of Teaching and Learning - TELL Awards

Program: LHRIC - Technology Leadership Institute (TLI)

Dates: 3/22/2019

This event is a celebration of excellence in the Region. The prestigious TELL award is bestowed upon Teachers and Leaders nominated by their colleagues and peers as demonstrating innovation, best practices, and having implemented systemic change in teaching and learning. Join us for this celebration and find out what the strategies are behind these success stories. New this year are the student poster sessions where students will demonstrate how the work of these educators has impacted their learning experience. The Keynote speaker for this year's event is Jen Waldman. Jen helps people hone in on their unique gifts, empowering them to take action with authenticity and heart. Using her background in the arts, she encourages creative thinking and imagination, so that others can cultivate new ideas and share them with the world. Jen and Simon Sinek united several years ago when Simon became aware that Jen was using the Golden Circle to inspire artists to make a greater impact with their work. The two recognized that by combining their efforts they could help people across many different industries discover their WHY and bring it to life. Jen now travels the world offering Why-inspired keynotes and workshops on leadership, communication, and presentation skills so that individuals and organizations can have more impact with their ideas. In addition to her work with Start With Why, Jen is the Founder and Executive Director of Jen Waldman Studio, New York City's premiere training studio for Broadway actors. She has worked with over a thousand artists to develop and nurture their creative voice and technique. Jen is particularly inspired by and dedicated to mentoring young people.

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

Program: LHRIC - Instructional Technology (Model Schools Courses)

Dates: 7/9/2019 to 7/11/2019

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.

46. DreamBox - Is Mathematics Difficult for ELLs?

Program: LHRIC - Instructional Technology (Model Schools Courses)

Dates: 8/19/2019

Today in United States, English language learners (ELLs) are the fastest-growing K-12 segment and this trend shows no signs of slowing down. Many of the ELLs are not meeting academic proficiency mathematics standards. ELLs students come to the elementary classroom with various levels of English language proficiency, varying levels of math proficiency, and a high need for individualized support. Join us for this hand-on session to explore and experience how DreamBox can be utilize with your ELLs population.

Participants in this workshop will learn:

- Why is math difficult for ELLs?
- How DreamBox addressing ELLs achieve mathematical proficiency?
- Best practices in ELL elementary math instruction

Target Audience: DreamBox User Only

47. Make it from Scratch (Beginner coding)

Program: LHRIC - Instructional Technology (Model Schools Courses)

Dates: 8/20/2019

Much like a recipe, coding is just a series of instructions. The end result will rely on the ingredients that you choose. Join us in creating music, art, games, tutorials, stories, and animations using the free online coding tool "Scratch".

This is your chance to:

- Learn how to teach the coding process without a computer.
- Explore tutorials and resources related to Scratch.
- Create a program that reflects your passion.

Prerequisite: This session is geared for those that may not have a formal programming or computer science background, but are open to exploring how the thinking involved in coding can help to enhance thinking across all disciplines.

48. CS Language Exchange: Exploring Coding Languages & Platforms for K-5 Classrooms

Program: LHRIC - Instructional Technology (Model Schools Courses)

Dates: 8/21/2019

Are you curious about additional coding languages and tools that you may be able to add to your computer science curriculum? This session will allow you to explore various coding languages and tools to learn their strengths, limitations, and unique device compatibilities. The ability for students to recognize language and coding concepts across different platforms is the key to coding as a literacy. Throughout this session, you will experience some of the greatest coding tools out there for use in your classroom!

During this session, you will learn:

- K-5 friendly coding languages.
- Sites and applications that support computational thinking and coding as a literacy.
- Device compatibility for apps and grade levels.
- Basic scripts that will allow you to create projects and introduce coding concepts.

Prerequisite: Current or planned inclusion of computer science in curriculum. Coding experience is helpful, but not required.

49. Webquests and the SAMR Model

Program: LHRIC - Instructional Technology (Model Schools Courses)

Dates: 8/22/2019

Back in the 1990s, "Webquests" were structured activities that helped students make sense of the growing world wide web of information by offering teachers easy to follow backward design lesson templates which made excellent use of internet resources. The SAMR Framework, popularized by Dr. Ruben Puentedura, has recently given us a model to reflect on how we're using educational technology to supplement, augment or even redefine a learning task. If you teach in a 1-1 environment, or a classroom which is approaching 1-1, you will find this session extremely practical. During this session, you will create a well designed "SAMR-informed" Webquest activity with support from LHRIC staff and fellow participants.
