Many of us have a word wall posted somewhere in our classroom to help our ELL students learn vocabulary. What if you could bring your word wall into the 21st century? Join us as we explore and create digital word walls! In this session, we'll show you everything you need to create digital word walls of your very own and highlight the benefits for your English language learners.
Are you looking for unique lesson ideas that incorporate technology? In this session, we'll explore a science lesson and share tips for selecting a technology tool that is going to help you transform the lesson. We'll dive into the PICRAT and SAMR models for technology integration to help you assign a level to the tools you are considering. We'll also use these guidelines to evaluate technology integration. With this new knowledge, you will be able to evaluate your own lessons and ensure that you are creating valuable learning tasks and activities for your students.
During this session, we will explore how technology can help support 1D to 3D learning, even in a hybrid environment. We'll take some time to review what exactly 3D learning is and how it's reflected in the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). From there, we'll dive into various types of technology and how they can be used to support this type of learning, both in and out of the classroom.
There is so much to monitor in our natural world — too much for scientists to handle alone! To maximize efforts, scientists often recruit citizen scientists to help. A citizen scientist is a member of the general public or an amateur scientist. While issues with data validity and collection standardization exist with this method, without it much of the natural world would go unobserved. Join us to learn about citizen science, how you can use it in your classroom to provide authenticity to a project, and learn some tips for keeping your collections valid!
In this session, we'll introduce you to strategies to make your long-term science investigations run smoothly! Explore a variety of topics, the different steps and sections of a science investigation, and then view samples to guide your students to success. With help from resources like Urban Advantage, you'll have everything you need to have your students hit the ground running!
Innovations in science are happening at a rapid rate. Often driven by technology and human ingenuity, these advancements must be supported from the ground up in future working populations to sustain this growth. That's where the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) come in, since strong K-12 science standards can help to prepare students for careers within this discipline. Join us to learn about the inner workings of the NGSS and how to read them in a way that helps you to frame engaging science activities.
Don't let those old textbook lessons go to waste! Now that you are familiar with inquiry thinking, join us as we transform traditional labs through the various levels of inquiry: confirmation, structured, guided, and open. After this session, you'll be ready to customize your own resources to best suit your classroom's needs.
Have you ever experienced the following scenario? A science teacher gives his students a lab on the rock cycle. The students spend 20 minutes working through the lab, following each step closely. After the lab activity the teacher administers an exit ticket as an informal way of assessing understanding, only to see little to no improvement. If you're looking for strategies to increase content retention in the science classroom, join our session to learn some ways to revise traditional labs and increase inquiry thinking.
The purpose of a chart is to visualize data in a way that accurately represents the story a dataset is telling. Tools like Excel, Google Sheets, and Numbers offer a wide variety of chart options and it is sometimes difficult to decide which works best for your purpose and identify which don’t work at all. Join us as we discuss what components are important in various chart types and the ways you can help students choose the appropriate chart for their dataset!
The Lunar New Year, also known as the Chinese New Year, is just around the corner, and it's the year of the Brown Dog! The Brown Dog symbolizes a strong and active Earth. If you don't have activities planned, don’t fret! This session will provide you with plenty of resources and ideas to bring the culture and science of the Lunar New Year to your classroom!
