A Crash Course in Design Thinking
Design Thinking is not just about Post-Its and cardboard projects. It’s a human-centered process and mindset to tackling complex problems through an empathy lens. By giving students the skills to think and act like a designer, they learn how to solve problems in a way that contributes positively to their community. Not only does using this process increase student engagement, improve critical and collaborative thinking, and foster an understanding of the real-world implications of their learning, Design Thinking also allows students to fail fast and learn by doing rather than avoiding failure by striving for initial perfection. And hey, it’s a lot of fun!
This crash course will provide an overview of Design Thinking, as well as tips, tricks, and strategies (and a few bad jokes) to re-engineer a traditional lesson to reflect the Design Thinking mindset.

Flipping the Writing Process
Writing can be a student's and teacher's worst nightmare with haunting phrases like "I don't know what to write about." In this session we will put this phrase to rest as we will flip the writing process. Starting with a video challenge, students collaboratively create a "script" and a video against the clock. Next, the writing is developed and expanded through the writing process, which will ultimately lead to a student film festival and a published text.

But, How Do I Know They Are Reading?
Reading logs, AR quizzes, Book Reports, notes...when I ask teachers why they are still using these the response is always the same. “How else do I know they are reading?” Do these actually provide that evidence? Let’s move kids from compliant workers to creative and empowered learners and thinkers. These activities and ideas are powerful for all grades and subjects since literacy is now included in all content areas.

Crowdsourcing History Through Art and Inquiry
Ever heard the expression, “The smartest person in the room, is the room?” In this session students will learn the power of crowdsourcing in an Edcamp inspired lesson format. First, you will learn about Visual Thinking Strategies while observing an art piece connected to history. You will learn how using Visual Thinking Strategies will spark inquiry questions. These inquiry questions lead the lesson as they are used to complete a digital “session board.” As in Edcamp, this lesson design inspires students to follow their passions. Using the digital session board, students choose which historical topics they would like to become experts in and work collaboratively with a team to do online research to learn more about the topic of their choosing. In this student centered lesson format, students will take the learning into their own hands and share what they learned with the class by creating a hyperdoc for other students to access. In addition to the Edcamp style lesson format, I will share with you the power of student self-reflection using a single point rubric in the After Party!

Iron Chef (IC) is a popular #eduprotocol that focuses on building student mastery for reading and writing summary statements. IC is an instructional framework to scaffold students’ critical thinking and writing skills for crafting better paragraphs. IC is designed to lead to student mastery of content standards and the 4Cs using Google Slides as the medium. Students develop skills in research, summary writing, visual design and communication. The benefits for teachers include an open-ended framework in which they can drop any content, give minimal prep time, and can grade while walking around (GWA). Participants will experience the upbeat tempo of Iron Chef and then have the option to create their own IC experience for their students.

QFT: lo-fi inquiry technology resulting in hi-fi student work
We always asks students to answer questions, but how often do we teach them to ask questions. Asking questions is arguably more important to learning than answering questions. In this session we'll explore one way to teach students to ask their own questions, thus tuning their perception, and readying themselves to learn based on their own interests. Students choose the media they use to demonstrate their learning and research.

Could Would Should: Developing Daily Critical Thinking
In a world where the loudest opinion is often taken as fact (even though it may NOT be factual), train your students daily to develop the critical thinking skills to navigate successfully through the informational noise. Ask first, “What do we all see that we agree upon?” Then ask, “If we COULD, solve problem X, how WOULD we go about it, and SHOULD we?”

This session will help you provide your students with tools to (1) distinguish between facts and opinion, (2) validate information and sources, (3) identify the assumptions behind questions, facts, and opinions, and (4) weight for themselves what informs their own opinions.

The sample lesson uses the lenses of literature, history, and science to ask effective questions, define problems, brainstorm possibilities, craft solutions, and test hypotheses. Participants will taste from a menu of engaging strategies that they can practice daily with students. They will also try for themselves a range of digital AND analog tools for discovering, creating, and sharing: Daily Animals, Divergent/Convergent Questioning, Ladders and Webs, Creative Problem Solving, Google Suite for Education, Chrome extensions, formative assessments (Kahoot, Quizizz, GreenScreen by DoInk, NPR’s StoryCorps, Procreate, and more.)

Because “the smartest person in the room is the room,” participants will also collaborate to plan lesson elements and unit outlines for the educators in the room.

Get Students Excited About Writing!
Not all students enjoy the writing process. It’s difficult and time consuming to come up with best idea and the right words. Take a dive into 8p*Arts and Cyber Sandwich, two eduprotocols that excite students to write and help them become more confident writers. 8p*Arts supports student writing through the use of a picture and graphic organizer that categorizes words by parts of speech. Students are engaged in the writing process due to the dynamic nature of word selection incited by the image provided. Cyber Sandwich provides students with academic content and vocabulary through shared reading and/or video watching. Working in pairs, students use all aspects of the 4Cs to compare and contrast learned information provided by the reading/video on shared graphic organizers. With that discussion, students transform the bulleted facts into a paragraph. Both of these protocols can be used with tech, directly on paper, in person, or online.

Analytics Driven Management Education
Management education has entered into a seminal period that is being driven by competition, globalization, economic uncertainty, demographics, and technology. As with industry speed and agility are two key characteristics associated with the business school of the future. To that end, business schools need to better align their product mix with the changing needs of the business community. Specifically, businesses are looking for graduates that are web-savvy, agile, and comfortable with big data. With the continued expansion of the Internet and mobile technologies, these pleas are gaining a new level of urgency. A growing number of management educators are now calling for a fundamental shift in the way business education is organized and delivered. This assessment is underscored, in part, by the exponential growth in online and blended management programs. To that end, the increasing use of analytics in business to improve efficiency and performance suggests that similar possibilities exist for schools of business. Specifically, analytics holds out considerable promise for enhancing student recruiting and retention; student learning outcomes and employment opportunities; and institutional efficiencies. The purpose of this presentation is to highlight best practices in the use of analytics throughout the management education universe with a specific emphasis on enhancing student recruiting and retention, expanding student learning successes and employment opportunities, and improving institutional efficiencies through resource optimization.

A Crash Course in Design Thinking
Design Thinking is not just about Post-Its and cardboard projects. It’s a human-centered process and mindset to tackling complex problems through an empathy lens. By giving students the skills to think and act like a designer, they learn how to solve problems in a way that contributes positively to their community. Not only does using this process increase student engagement, improve critical and collaborative thinking, and foster an understanding of the real-world implications of their learning, Design Thinking also allows students to fail fast and learn by doing rather than avoiding failure by striving for initial perfection. And hey, it’s a lot of fun!
This crash course will provide an overview of Design Thinking, as well as tips, tricks, and strategies (and a few bad jokes) to re-engineer a traditional lesson to reflect the Design Thinking mindset.

Reading logs, AR quizzes, Book Reports, notes...when I ask teachers why they are still using these the response is always the same. “How else do I know they are reading?” Do these actually provide that evidence? Let’s move kids from compliant workers to creative and empowered learners and thinkers. These activities and ideas are powerful for all grades and subjects since literacy is now included in all content areas.

We always asks students to answer questions, but how often do we teach them to ask questions. Asking questions is arguably more important to learning than answering questions. In this session we'll explore one way to teach students to ask their own questions, thus tuning their perception, and readying themselves to learn based on their own interests. Students choose the media they use to demonstrate their learning and research.

Could Would Should: Developing Daily Critical Thinking
In a world where the loudest opinion is often taken as fact (even though it may NOT be factual), train your students daily to develop the critical thinking skills to navigate successfully through the informational noise. Ask first, “What do we all see that we agree upon?” Then ask, “If we COULD, solve problem X, how WOULD we go about it, and SHOULD we?”

This session will help you provide your students with tools to (1) distinguish between facts and opinion, (2) validate information and sources, (3) identify the assumptions behind questions, facts, and opinions, and (4) weight for themselves what informs their own opinions.

The sample lesson uses the lenses of literature, history, and science to ask effective questions, define problems, brainstorm possibilities, craft solutions, and test hypotheses. Participants will taste from a menu of engaging strategies that they can practice daily with students. They will also try for themselves a range of digital AND analog tools for discovering, creating, and sharing: Daily Animals, Divergent/Convergent Questioning, Ladders and Webs, Creative Problem Solving, Google Suite for Education, Chrome extensions, formative assessments (Kahoot, Quizizz, GreenScreen by DoInk, NPR’s StoryCorps, Procreate, and more.)

Because “the smartest person in the room is the room,” participants will also collaborate to plan lesson elements and unit outlines for the educators in the room.

Crowdsourcing History Through Art and Inquiry
Ever heard the expression, “The smartest person in the room, is the room?” In this session students will learn the power of crowdsourcing in an Edcamp inspired lesson format. First, you will learn about Visual Thinking Strategies while observing an art piece connected to history. You will learn how using Visual Thinking Strategies will spark inquiry questions. These inquiry questions lead the lesson as they are used to complete a digital “session board.” As in Edcamp, this lesson design inspires students to follow their passions. Using the digital session board, students choose which historical topics they would like to become experts in and work collaboratively with a team to do online research to learn more about the topic of their choosing. In this student centered lesson format, students will take the learning into their own hands and share what they learned with the class by creating a hyperdoc for other students to access. In addition to the Edcamp style lesson format, I will share with you the power of student self-reflection using a single point rubric in the After Party!

Flipping the Writing Process
Writing can be a student's and teacher's worst nightmare with haunting phrases like "I don't know what to write about." In this session we will put this phrase to rest as we will flip the writing process. Starting with a video challenge, students collaboratively create a "script" and a video against the clock. Next, the writing is developed and expanded through the writing process, which will ultimately lead to a student film festival and a published text.

Participants will learn strategies to teach with a digital notebook, walk away with lesson models, and consider how to remix the learning cycles in their classrooms with notebook lessons.

CUE Craft: Iron Chef #Eduprotocol
Iron Chef (IC) is a popular #eduprotocol that focuses on building student mastery for reading and writing summary statements. IC is an instructional framework to scaffold students’ critical thinking and writing skills for crafting better paragraphs. IC is designed to lead to student mastery of content standards and the 4Cs using Google Slides as the medium. Students develop skills in research, summary writing, visual design and communication. The benefits for teachers include an open-ended framework in which they can drop any content, give minimal prep time, and can grade while walking around (GWA). Participants will experience the upbeat tempo of Iron Chef and then have the option to create their own IC experience for their students.

Get Students Excited About Writing!
Not all students enjoy the writing process. It’s difficult and time consuming to come up with best idea and the right words. Take a dive into 8p*Arts and Cyber Sandwich, two eduprotocols that excite students to write and help them become more confident writers. 8p*Arts supports student writing through the use of a picture and graphic organizer that categorizes words by parts of speech. Students are engaged in the writing process due to the dynamic nature of word selection incited by the image provided. Cyber Sandwich provides students with academic content and vocabulary through shared reading and/or video watching. Working in pairs, students use all aspects of the 4Cs to compare and contrast learned information provided by the reading/video on shared graphic organizers. With that discussion, students transform the bulleted facts into a paragraph. Both of these protocols can be used with tech, directly on paper, in person, or online.

The Maker Movement Meets Literacy
Bring the maker experience into your classroom while helping students develop their understanding of story structure and plot development. In this maker movement inspired lesson, you will learn how to connect books to the design thinking process and allow students to design solutions to a problem a character faces in the story. Students will learn to use the design thinking process to develop empathy for the characters, find problems in the story that need solutions, and work collaboratively to ideate and design solutions. Students will use easily accessible materials such as cardboard, paper, cups, string, etc. to design a prototype for their solution to help the character solve a problem. In the end, students will have the opportunity to rewrite the story integrating their creation into the story. This hands on approach to understanding character development, conflict, and plot will deepen literacy skills and promote a maker mindset. You will walk away from the session believing that you can bring the makerspace right into your classroom and justify how it connects to CCSS. If you stay for the After Party, you will get to design a solution and be part of the maker experience!

Playing in the Same Sandbox
The increasing supply of free and openly licensed educational resources allow educators the flexibility to move beyond a textbook. Searching and discovering these resources, along with vetting them for quality and standards alignment require careful attention to ensure that we’re bringing the best materials into our classrooms. So where does that leave the resources that our district buys? Join this session to discuss how all three types - free, open, and proprietary - can play in the same sandbox.

Are You Ready for LEA (Language Experience Approach)
Join us for a fun, engaging learning tactic where we get the entire class doing an activity and then discussing and writing about it in a teacher‐led process. The completed decisions can then be used in multiple follow‐up activities to reinforce language learning. LEA can be a low‐prep, high‐energy lesson focused on student interests. It can be easily adapted to different subjects and, though it is most often used with ELL beginners, students at various degrees of English proficiency can benefit from its use. Using this strategy can assist students as they begin developing the skills to write informative, explanatory, and narrative text. Also, it supports students in gaining an understanding of English conventions. Finally, it helps the Speaking and Listening Standard of “building on others' ideas” (Common Core State Standards Initiative, n.d.c).

It’s All About Me … And You: Developing Empathy
What is MY point of view? How does it differ from YOUR (or THEIR) point of view?

The answers to these questions are fundamental to understanding the world, one’s self, the day’s lesson in English/math/science/history/etc., or simply the news.

In this lesson, participants will, like students, identify their own strengths, influences, biases, understanding, and the “stuff” they don’t understand about (for example, literature, geometry, genetics, Syrian refugees, or the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017.

We’ll start by focusing on what is most knowable -- ourselves.
WHAT am I (skills, relationships, values)?
WHY am I this way (influences, experiences, preferences)?
HOW can I maintain or change what I am?

Then we’ll pick an area to research “What’s it like to be someone who ….?” (loves poetry, uses geometry in their job, became an astronaut, fled Syria, lost a parent, etc.). Using a myriad of tech tools, we’ll (1) gather information (Google Power Search, StoryCorps, etc.), (2) sort and prioritize, (3) synthesize using audio and video as well as the written word (Screencastify, GreenScreen by DoInk, ExplainEverything), and (4) present what we’ve created (Hyperdocs, YouTube, etc.).

Designing Lessons for Social Good
Today’s world is filled with complex societal challenges: homelessness, climate change, access to clean water, and so on. Using the principles of Design Thinking, CCSS and NGSS standards can be used as a vehicle for empowering students to develop ways to address these societal challenges through real-world problem solving, entrepreneurialism, service, and student-prototyped designs. In this session, you’ll learn how the practice of human-centered design thinking can help uncover needs, frame generative questions, develop concepts, and prototype solutions while mastering content standards.
This session will provide an overview of the Design Thinking process, and how to use this process, connected with grade-level content standards, to empower social justice and advocacy.

It’s All About Me … And You: Developing Empathy
What is MY point of view? How does it differ from YOUR (or THEIR) point of view?

The answers to these questions are fundamental to understanding the world, one’s self, the day’s lesson in English/math/science/history/etc., or simply the news.

In this lesson, participants will, like students, identify their own strengths, influences, biases, understanding, and the “stuff” they don’t understand about (for example, literature, geometry, genetics, Syrian refugees, or the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017.

We’ll start by focusing on what is most knowable -- ourselves.
WHAT am I (skills, relationships, values)?
WHY am I this way (influences, experiences, preferences)?
HOW can I maintain or change what I am?

Then we’ll pick an area to research “What’s it like to be someone who ….?” (loves poetry, uses geometry in their job, became an astronaut, fled Syria, lost a parent, etc.). Using a myriad of tech tools, we’ll (1) gather information (Google Power Search, StoryCorps, etc.), (2) sort and prioritize, (3) synthesize using audio and video as well as the written word (Screencastify, GreenScreen by DoInk, ExplainEverything), and (4) present what we’ve created (Hyperdocs, YouTube, etc.).

Playing in the Same Sandbox
The increasing supply of free and openly licensed educational resources allow educators the flexibility to move beyond a textbook. Searching and discovering these resources, along with vetting them for quality and standards alignment require careful attention to ensure that we’re bringing the best materials into our classrooms. So where does that leave the resources that our district buys? Join this session to discuss how all three types - free, open, and proprietary - can play in the same sandbox.

The Maker Movement Meets Literacy
Bring the maker experience into your classroom while helping students develop their understanding of story structure and plot development. In this maker movement inspired lesson, you will learn how to connect books to the design thinking process and allow students to design solutions to a problem a character faces in the story. Students will learn to use the design thinking process to develop empathy for the characters, find problems in the story that need solutions, and work collaboratively to ideate and design solutions. Students will use easily accessible materials such as cardboard, paper, cups, string, etc. to design a prototype for their solution to help the character solve a problem. In the end, students will have the opportunity to rewrite the story integrating their creation into the story. This hands on approach to understanding character development, conflict, and plot will deepen literacy skills and promote a maker mindset. You will walk away from the session believing that you can bring the makerspace right into your classroom and justify how it connects to CCSS. If you stay for the After Party, you will get to design a solution and be part of the maker experience!

Tell Me a Story
Are your students creative, effective communicators? Foster future-ready skills and discover digital storytelling as a vehicle for student voice, choice, and creativity. Infuse your curriculum with the power of video creation as a way for students to flex their creative muscles and showcase their learning. Whether your classroom is project-based or blended, this session will lead participants in a lesson that you can use on Monday!

During this one hour hands-on classroom simulation geared toward beginning movie makers, participants will engage in the “Thousand Words Project” by writing short content-area specific narratives based on a collection of primary source media. Attendees will use the WeVideo platform to create a complete digital story, including images, voiceovers, and music. Throughout the session, presenters will demonstrate the user-friendly features of WeVideo and scaffold the creative process as attendees access the media library, record voiceovers, and add music. You will leave this session empowered to bring the power of movie-making to your students.

Come create with us!
