Mobile photography provides an opportunity to be artistic, analytical, share experiences, and incorporate the real world into personal learning. An image can be the springboard for expressing ideas and enhancing understanding through digital media and critical thinking skills. Students can use it to express themselves, demonstrate learning, and be creative. Plus, the story of your classroom, school, or district can be communicated in an engaging and effective manner through images. Of course one of the most important perks of mobile photography is it’s just plain FUN!

In this session, we will share basic photo composition strategies, go on a photowalk, explore a few apps for editing, and discuss classroom applications.

Please bring a mobile device - phone or tablet - that takes pictures to this session as well as a Mac, PC or Chromebook.

SAMR SLAMR Room 305
Technology, is just like any other tool but the ability to transform learning lies in the hands of the educator who designs the learning experience using that technology. Educators often look for subject area apps and technology that provide content information or guided practice for student interaction. While activities such as these have their purpose, this session will encourage teachers to find, evaluate, and use open-ended creative technology to engage students in the process of learning rather than consumption of information. Ruben Peuntedura’s SAMR model indicates the level of student engagement when using technology to leverage learning success. In this session, participants will explore the SAMR model in different contexts, practice evaluating lessons based on their learning, and apply that learning to SAMRize their own lessons.

WTF - Why Teach Failure? Room 308
Instead of giving the kids the option to fail, why not create one-column rubrics and use badges for competency-based learning. Use smart design, and student self-reflection and assessment for any class assignment. Use learning targets and success criteria to incorporate the CCSS.

Best Use of iOS Apps in a 1:1 iPad Classroom Room 303
The Common Core expects students to create, collaborate, communicate, and to think critically. This means our students need to use iOS apps in an innovative way to demonstrate their learning to think critically about the world around them. In addition, the power of student choice and the ability to share ones work with a larger audience than the teacher is of great importance. This session you will learn how to effectively create and sustain a culture of app smashing in your classroom.

SAMR SLAMR Room 305
Technology, is just like any other tool but the ability to transform learning lies in the hands of the educator who designs the learning experience using that technology. Educators often look for subject area apps and technology that provide content information or guided practice for student interaction. While activities such as these have their purpose, this session will encourage teachers to find, evaluate, and use open-ended creative technology to engage students in the process of learning rather than consumption of information. Ruben Peuntedura’s SAMR model indicates the level of student engagement when using technology to leverage learning success. In this session, participants will explore the SAMR model in different contexts, practice evaluating lessons based on their learning, and apply that learning to SAMRize their own lessons.
