1. Google Sites - Create Your Own Class Website

Program: Standards & Instructional Practice

Audience: Teachers

Dates: 6/28/2017

Starting Soon
Create interesting webpages for your classroom or school position using Google Sites. Make them as basic or intricate as you want. Design your own, or choose from colorful themes and templates. Teachers can use Sites for classroom webpages to communicate with students and parents about course requirements, assignments, field trips, homework, etc. Help solve the problem of parents not knowing what assignments are. Direct them to your webpage. Insert other Google tools to post resources and information. Examples: Embed a Google homework calendar that students and parents can scroll through. Attach assignments, with due dates, that can be downloaded from the calendar. Have students “subscribe” to your calendar. Link to your Google Drive folder so students can download assignments. Add or remove folders as units change; drop documents into the folders, and they are instantly available on the webpage. Post images, insert videos, link to RSS feeds, create subpages, and more. Add course content and customize the Sites page for your curriculum. Add additional features. Teach students to use Sites for student ePortfolios that follow them year after year. Or, use Sites for project-based learning or summary presentations at the end of units. Note: This session will use the “CURRENT” version of Google, because the new version does not have all the features of the current version yet. In 2019, there will be a migration tool to transfer the current version of Sites over to the new version. This way, you will be able to learn all the features that still need to be added to the new version. ================= Session by Carol LaRow- Google Certified Trainer, Google Certified Teacher, Google Apps For Education Regional Leader – Eastern States.

6. Greater Capital Region Project Based Learning Institute

Program: Project Based Learning

Audience: Teachers, Administrators and instructional support staff

Dates: 7/31/2017 to 8/4/2017

Project Based Learning (PBL) is a lot more than "doing projects." This five-day workshop will provide an opportunity to explore how projects can become the driving force behind the delivery of your entire curriculum instead of just an end of unit assessment. PBL can help make our classrooms more relevant and rigorous while teaching crucial skills like collaboration, critical thinking, and communication! Participants will have opportunities to experience part of a PBL unit, work to begin designing their own standards-aligned units, and explore how to use Google applications and other free software to manage the process. Teachers who are new to PBL will gain a strong enough foundation to begin integrating projects into their work this year, while experienced teachers will be able to explore new subtleties and take their work to the next level. Individuals may submit personal checks to HFM BOCES if Distict or BOCES is not paying. Otherwise, Districts or Local BOCES will be billed by HFM BOCES.

25. Cognitive Coaching Foundations

Program: Standards & Instructional Practice

Audience: Teachers, administrators, teacher leaders, instructional coaches, counselors, mentors

Dates: 10/26/2017 to 5/18/2018

The mission of Cognitive Coaching (sm) is to produce self-directed persons with the cognitive capacity for excellence both independently and as members of a community. Research indicates that teaching is a complex intellectual activity and that teachers who think at higher levels produce students who are higher achieving, more cooperative, and better problem solvers. It is the invisible skills of teaching, the thinking processes that underlie instructional decisions, which produce superior instruction. Cognitive Coaching (sm) is a research-based model that capitalizes upon and enhances teachers’ cognitive processes. In the eight-day seminars, participants learn how to: develop trust and rapport develop an identity as a mediator of thinking utilize conversation structures for planning, reflecting, and problem resolving develop teachers’ autonomy and sense of community develop higher levels of efficacy, consciousness, craftsmanship, flexibility, and interdependence apply four support functions: coaching, evaluating, consulting, collaborating utilize the coaching tools of pausing, paraphrasing, and posing questions distinguish among the five forms of feedback and use data to mediate thinking
