Going 1:1 with Chromebooks: A Reflective Journey
Limited Capacity filling up

Hear what lessons I learned from my first year of 1:1 Chromebooks with grade 5 and middle school (grades 6-8). Let’s peek inside the Google Admin Console. What about apps and extensions? What’s the difference between those two, anyway? Who can I call when a Chromebook breaks? Inventory...oh my! I’ll also share a few ideas of what we can do with students who are bringing individual devices into our classrooms and libraries. Leave with several do’s and don’ts in these areas, as well as encouragement that a 1:1 program can be effective. Attendees should bring their own devices that can access the internet and their school’s Google Admin Consoles.

National Board Certification and You!
Limited Capacity seats available

A decade of research shows that students of Board-certified teachers learn more than their peers without Board-certified teachers. Studies have also found that the positive impact of having a Board-certified teacher is even greater for minority and low-income students. Come learn about the revised National Board Certification process and how it can transform your teaching. We will cover the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS) 5 Core Propositions, Architecture of Accomplished Teaching, and Library Media Standards. Participants will have a brief overview of the Assessment Center activity and 3 written Portfolio entries for LMS's with tips and tricks for success along the way.

Component 1 - Content Knowledge
Component 2 - Differentiation in Instruction
Component 3 - Teaching Practice and Learning Environment
Component 4 - Effective and Reflective Practitioner

National Board Certification requires candidates to evaluate their current teaching practice. It is specific to your unique teaching situation and will directly impact your students.

This Library Is Going to the Dogs!
Limited Capacity seats available

Our library is an essential part of our learning community. We have programs that reach all the way to California and as close as our city shelter. The library, the future educators class and an elementary school are piloting the West Coast’s Red Rover program which builds empathy for animals while strengthening the elementary school students’ reading skills. Teenagers get to practice teaching as they learn about Social Emotional Learning. We use our school library’s MakerSpace for students to create Snuffle Mats, which are enrichment toys for shelter dogs. Mainstreamed and FMD classes make the mats we donate to the shelter. Our after school animal club has created partnerships with animal organizations. We are helping develop future community leaders. Our students graduate with practice in the career they hope to pursue and with an overview of the many ways they can help the community animals.

Let This "Dynamic Duo" Answer Your Graphic Novel Questions
Limited Capacity filling up

Graphic novels aren't just about superheroes. They include memoirs, non-fiction, minority voices, manga, and many other rich genres. A dynamic duo of a library media specialist and a graphic novel course teacher/literacy coach are here to answer all of your questions. This presentation explores: What makes a quality graphic novel? What makes the genre of comics its own unique art form? Can graphic novels make you smarter? How do graphic novels use panels, bleeds, perspective, realism, negative space, and texture to help tell a story? How can you use graphic novels to teach students the art of storytelling? Are they appropriate for independent reading? Summer reading? For ESL? What are some successful cross-promotional strategies for your collection? With a heavy emphasis on teens, this presentation also explores: How can you build a graphic novel collection with strong cross-curricular connections (including hot titles and core titles)?

Ways to Extend Hour of Code
Limited Capacity seats available

In 2013, HourofCode.org was launched and has been growing every year. At King Middle School, all students in grades 6, 7, & 8 participate in the Computer Science Education Week in December with their science teachers. Doing Scratch, Khan Academy sessions, or Hour of Code, gets old for 8th graders since they have done it the last 2 years. For the past 2 years, I have collaborated with the 8th grade science teachers to offer a day of more hands on coding. Stations using Ozobots, Spheros, Lego, Perler Beads, Made with Code, Snap Circuits, and Bloxels had proven successful in showing students a bit more ways code can create and work. In this session, I will explain the collaboration aspect and then have stations set up for attendees to do some hands on coding.

Teaching Media Literacy in a Post-Truth World
Limited Capacity filling up

Why are most digital citizenship lessons inadequate in cracking filter bubbles? Can school librarians reach students before they become the misinformed news consumers of tomorrow? What factors (including neurological) cause people to be vulnerable to believing falsehoods - and how can school librarians hope to counter these factors? What does the future of “fake news” hold? What methods of spreading misinformation (e.g. memes, deepfakes) pose special challenges to media literacy? How can library media specialists and journalists work together to restore a healthy respect for journalism? How can we frame news literacy issues better so that we have the most impact on this generation and future generations?

This session attempts to tackle these and other essential questions.
