Come take a look at some great apps to help promote early literacy and writing skills in your early education classroom. During this course we will explore Little Writer, Story Dice and epic.  These apps have several pre-loaded activities as well as some customizable features to help with early writing, phonics, vocabulary,  storytelling and critical thinking skills. In this course we show you have these apps apply to all types of learners and can allow for some differentiation in you classroom.  We will also go over some customizable settings on the iPad to make things easier for pre-readers and little fingers. The activities on these apps align with NAEYC and common core early learning standards.

Representing Data in Charts

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!

Identifying Effective Classroom Technology Usage

What makes a great technology-infused lesson?  How can you encourage teachers to better utilize their available classroom technology more effectively? Participants will leave this session with an understanding of two popular model frameworks for integrating technology tools: SAMR and T-PACK. Administrators will be better able to motivate their teachers into higher levels of effective technology usage, and teachers will be able to do lesson planning to enable deeper understanding and increased engagement from their students.
