2. Workshop: Having a Web Presence Like a Pro with Google Sites, Blogger, and Google Classroom

Program: Instructional Technology

Audience: Teachers in the OCM BOCES component region

Dates: 8/24/2017

Starting Soon
It is important in our information age that teachers have a presence on the web where parents and students can easily find information. As a society, we have an expectation that when we have a question it will be easily found using our phones or computers. Agree with this or not, this is the reality of today. In this 3-hour workshop, we will look at three tools that allow teachers to connect with all of the stakeholders involved. Using these three tools teachers are able to provide information with very little effort. Google Sites allows teachers a platform to connect with the community and once set up will only need to update the page on a quarterly basis. Blogger provides teachers an easy way to share class news on a weekly basis i.e. an alternative to a paper newsletter. Finally, Classroom allows teachers a daily contact with their students. By using all three of these tools teachers are able to connect with minimal time commitment and have a wide informational reach. This workshop will take place at the Driver Middle School in the Marcellus Central School District 2 Reed Parkway Marcellus, NY.

3. Workshop: Advanced Flip--Video Creation and Editing

Program: Instructional Technology

Audience: Teachers in the OCM BOCES component region

Dates: 8/29/2017

Many teachers have seen success flipping their instruction by using video to replace homework, using increased time in class for authentic hands-on inquiry. As teachers begin flipping their instruction they spend hours searching for the perfect video that teaches exactly what the teacher would have taught in class. This process of searching for the perfect video is very time consuming and teachers come to the realization that they are the expert in their class and decide to spend their time recording their own instruction. Starting with very simple screencasting software and their Smartboard they record the lecture exactly as how it would have been if the students were in the classroom. Students in class today are bombarded by entertaining videos from all directions and simple screencasts are found to be dry. This is the point where teachers try to step up their video production. In this workshop, we will examine...Who...should be making the videos; it is not always you! What... goes into a good video; storyline, length, and editing. When...can you take video; anytime you see interesting content. Where...do you need to go to create quality videos; it is not as far as Hollywood. How...do you create, edit and share your video; we will learn how to use an online video production tool called WeVideo combined with Google Drive.This workshop will take place at the Driver Middle School in the Marcellus Central School District 2 Reed Parkway Marcellus, NY.
