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.

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.
