    Social media is everywhere. You use it. Your students use it. Your colleagues use it. Social media is a powerful platform for sharing information freely and widely. Access to social media has transformed the populace from consumers of information to interactive creators and distributors of information. It gives the average person the power to persuade and influence and allows for direct communication around the world. Social media is also a hotly debated source of misinformation and potentially harmful content.

    How can we keep the positive aspects of social media without getting bogged down in the negative? How can we be responsible digital citizens who think critically about everything we encounter online? And how can we build that foundation with our students?

    Join us for a discussion about social media and our role as informed citizens. As we learned from the Spiderman movies, "With great power comes great responsibility."

    41. The Adult Experience - When Children's Behaviors are Triggering (for grades 6-12) - Virtual

    Program: Office of School Improvement - CTLE Approved Sponsor

    Dates: 2/16/2023

    One of the greatest game changers in doing this work is recognizing behavior as communication. What are they really communicating? What's being said without words? What need are they, likely subconsciously or unconsciously, trying to meet? We are rarely in the present moment - either triggered from our past or projecting into the future in the midst of an undesirable behavior. The true magic is when we can return to the present to SEE the child in front of us and get curious about their current need.

    What narratives did you grow up with about behavior? What comes up for you in the moment? This workshop will support you in accessing the tools in your toolbox to calm your nervous system proactively and reactively in order to navigate children's triggering behaviors.

    Have you ever wished you had a safe, non-judgmental space to ask questions about LGBTQ+ individuals and identity? Are you confused by the differences between gender, expression, identity and orientation? Have you ever wondered what the letters in the LGBTQ+ initialism mean? Would you like strategies for creating more welcoming and affirming learning spaces for LGBTQ+ students, colleagues, and families? This professional learning opportunity provides the tools you need! While progress is slowly being made to create more welcoming and affirming learning spaces there is still much to be done. For LGBTQ+ students, colleagues, and families the school environment can pose numerous threats and obstacles. Below are some eye-opening statistics from GLSEN's (Gay Lesbian Straight Education Network) 2019 National School Climate Report: 86% of LGBTQ+ students were harassed or assaulted at schools; 2 in 5 LGBTQ+ students of color were bullied or harassed based on race or ethnicity; 84% of trans students felt unsafe at school because of their gender. Anti-LGBTQ discrimination means that LGBTQ+ students miss more school, have lower GPAs, and lower self-esteem. This dynamic, interactive professional learning session focuses on building your ally skills, developing welcoming and affirming learning spaces through the use of inclusive and respectful language, terminology, pronouns and discourse, assessing the physical environment for inclusivity, creating inclusive learning opportunities, and knowing where to go for resources and support. Attending this workshop is a proactive step towards creating welcoming and affirming learning spaces. Program participants will receive a Safe Zone sticker and course materials.

    Program: Office of School Improvement - CTLE Approved Sponsor

    Audience: School leaders, classroom teachers, SEL leaders

    Dates: 4/19/2023

    Our personal and social identities make all of us who we are. All of our identity markers shape how we perceive the world and how the world perceives us. Identity work in a classroom is very important as it builds a level of trust so that students feel safe to be who they are. Please join us in learning how the creation of identity portraits and subsequent identity learning via an identity spectrum activity and community circles help to foster welcoming and affirming learning environments as called for in the New York State Education Sustaining Education Framework. This is an experiential session where you will create your own identity portrait and participate in the identity spectrum activity and community circles, which can then be replicated with students and adult colleagues. During this session we will be able to: develop our growing understanding of the concept of identity so that we can begin to recognize how our identity shows up in our professional roles in schools; create our own identity portraits; use our identity portraits to participate in community circles and the spectrum activity in order to discover ways they can be used to foster dialogue that builds community and trust among participants.
