The end of the school year is always a great time to stop and take stock of accomplishments, while anticipating what we want to accomplish moving ahead. Brightbytes Technology and Learning data is best implemented as a collaboration across departments and stakeholder groups, yet it is too often isolated to technology departments and personnel. If you have struggled with inviting other stakeholders into the discussion, you might have considered the following questions: -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 End of Year Session 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.

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 environmentŚ 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.

Do you want to learn how to locate resources, facilitate lessons, and tie best practices into unplugged activities that will empower your students to think critically, collaboratively, and flexibly about coding? There is no prior coding experience necessary!

Throughout this session, you will not only act, but also think like a computer scientist. Oh, and please leave your computer at home! Coding without a computer keeps the focus on the true power of collaboration, growth mindsets, and computational thinking without the distraction of a screen or the confinement of a specific coding program. With technology changing just as quickly as programming environments, preparing young coders to think like computer scientists provides the necessary foundational skills that can be applied across a wide range of coding environments.

During this session you will:

- Participate in activities that support both coding concepts and computational thinking.
- Discover ways to differentiate activities to provide scaffolding for students.
- Leave with a toolkit of resources to bring back to your classroom.
