2. Coding for Cowards: An Experience for the Interested Novice (@PNW BOCES)

Program: LHRIC - Instructional Technology (Model Schools Courses)

Dates: 3/2/2018

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.

3. Explore Learning User Group

Program: LHRIC - Instructional Technology (Model Schools Courses)

Audience: Explore Learning participating districts through LHRIC and surrounding BOCES

Dates: 3/8/2018

New
Please join us for our annual Explore Learning users group where you will have the opportunity to come together with other educators in the area to share best practices, discuss implementation strategies and find out how other districts are using Gizmos and Reflex.

This session will be lead by Explore Learning and LHRIC staff and will allow users to learn how online simulations help teachers take advantage of research-proven instructional strategies and help students of all ability levels develop conceptual understanding in math and science.

Teachers will see how to supplement and enhance instruction with powerful interactive visualizations of concepts.

Learn how students can manipulate key variables, generate and test hypotheses, and engage in extensive “what-if” experimentation.



A light breakfast will be provided Explore Learning.

4. NYS Science Standards – Grades 6 - 12

Program: CPDCS - 17-18 Science - SCI

Audience: Grades 6-12 teachers, administrators, coordinators, special education teachers, ENL teachers

Dates: 3/9/2018

Hurricanes! Floods! Health Epidemics! It seems like there is no end to the phenomena that exists in our world today. Do your students ask “Why?” and you provide the answers? Join us as we unpack the New York State Science Standards, which are grounded in Phenomena, and discover how we can facilitate as our students “figure out” instead of “learn about”. Science is a “DO”, not “WATCH”, connect with fellow educators as we “figure out” how to teach our students to wonder, question and investigate.

This program may be used to meet 5.5 hours toward CTLE requirements. CTLE ID # 322. Check with your district for eligibility.

5. NYS Science LS - Understanding and Using Phenomena in the Elementary Classroom - SCI

Program: CPDCS - 17-18 Science - SCI

Audience: Grades K-5 teachers, administrators, coordinators, special education teachers, ENL teachers

Dates: 3/12/2018

This workshop will examine the new standards for science in grades K-5 while focusing on how phenomena can be used to begin a unit of study. Anchoring learning in explaining phenomena fosters engagement in science as well as enhancing the relevance of science concepts to students' lives. The focus of learning shifts from "learning about" to "figuring out" why things happen. We will explore a variety of phenomena, how to build units of study and how to make the science classroom engaging and student-centered.

This program may be used to meet 5.5 hours toward CTLE requirements. CTLE ID # 322. Check with your district for eligibility.
