Some session offerings include:
Technology Integration in the Classroom with Digital Choice Boards and TRAILS
TRAILS is Trafera’s digital lesson library that has over 700 cross-curricular lesson plans and resources for K-12 teachers. Each lesson has at least one technology feature, such as a website, app or extension to help teachers deliver concepts in a transformative way that utilizes the technology in their classrooms. We will also share how we have incorporated some of these technology tools into digital choice boards to help transform teaching and learning by offering students more voice and choice.
STEM Success Matrix and Community-Based STEM Experience Ideas
The STEM Success Matrix is a tool designed to help teachers and administrators understand what a high-quality STEM lesson should look like and include. The matrix breaks down the different components of STEM learning to guide teachers on what to look for when delivering or creating a STEM experience for their students. STEM and project-based learning come together in this exciting, hands-on project that is appropriate for elementary through high school students.After teachers and students develop a strong understanding of what STEM learning and higher inquiry thinking is, students will work together to create ‘STEM Stops’ to be placed throughout the community in an effort to make connections to STEM in a variety of locations as well as ignite curiosity and encourage exploration.
AI in the Classroom: ChatGPT and AutoClassmate
Incorporating AI technology into teaching methods can enhance the learning experience for students and free up valuable time for teachers. This session will focus on two AI tools, ChatGPT and AutoClassmate, and how they can be used in the classroom. With ChatGPT, teachers can create a more personalized learning experience for their students, helping them to better understand complex concepts and fostering a deeper engagement with the material. AutoClassmate, on the other hand, is an AI tool that can help teachers with grading and assessments, including help providing feedback.
Emerging STEM Technologies (Photon and ClassVR)
ClassVR is an incredible tool that brings innovative virtual reality lessons and experiences to students of all ages. It comes complete with hardware, software, curriculum-linked activities and lesson plans. ClassVR content is aligned directly to the curriculum and works in combination with the lessons to motivate, excite and encourage the imagination of students of all ages.
Google Workspace For Education
From Standard to EDU Plus Take a teacher-led tour of some powerful Google Workspace for Education’s easy-to-use tools that provide a flexible and secure foundation for learning, collaboration, and communication. Participants will learn about the various features of each edition and best practices for integrating these tools into their teaching practice and improving student outcomes.
