Digital Citizenship for Future Ready Students

Digital Citizenship skills are essential for our students to be Future Ready.  This session will help district leaders understand all that Digital Citizenship encompasses, and how it connects within the state and ISTE standards.  We will share district efforts and next steps to create a baseline Digital Citizenship course for all teachers which provides  training, resources and support as they move forward with implementing a robust Digital Citizenship program in their classrooms.

From Digitized Worksheets to Digital Native Creations
Educational technologies can radically transform educational practices if teachers are willing to embrace the possibilities. However that transformation will be non-existent if teachers view educational technologies such as Google Apps for Education as ways for re-creating non-digital work in a digital environment. In this conversation, we will discuss strategies for creating digital native assignments. Starting with examples of typical assignments given to students, we will discuss digital possibilities and tools (such as Google Apps for Education, hyperlinks, embedding, and so on) to create similar activities that make full use of the web. Don’t just turn that handout into a Google Doc with tables. Make use of hyperlinks, embedded videos, drawings, digital collaboration and more! Let’s put our interdisciplinary minds together and create anew for our students!

Shades of 1:1 - What Models Work Best to Transform Classrooms
While some schools are able to reach the ratio of one student per device, it isn't always the ideal environment in which to learn and it . 1:1 status can create expectations that students are always on devices or it can allow for huge numbers of devices to go unused in the carts around a school. In this session we will explore all of the different ways of leveraging a 1:1 ratio as well as moving beyond a simple ratio to discuss the relationship between a student and a device that is far more advantageous to blended and personalized learning.

How does device access (and usage) change the way we plan lessons to create more engaging learning tasks? How does it support and empower students? If we haven't answered these questions, why should we hold a 1:1 ratio up as the ideal? In this session we will interrogate the notion of 1:1 and explore alternative ways of supporting Blended and Personalized Learning in our schools.

Isolation in a Hyper-Connected World
We are inundated with tools to gather information. However, the sophistication to select and filter information has left us surrounded by similar information re-enforcing existing beliefs while stunting our ability to grow. Come learn how this happens, its impact on us and society as well as strategies to game those systems so we can become better informed individuals and citizens.
