Connecting with students in an online world:Seesaw,Flipgrid,GAFE
Seesaw, Flipgrid, and Google Apps for Education (GSuite) are all tools that students use to share their learning, reflect, and connect with others in k-12 classrooms. In this session, I will share examples of how each of these tools can be used in the k-12 classroom, as well as sharing an array of resources for you to use in your classroom.

Participants will explore with hands on activities and have a chance to join the instructor's class and experience some of the lessons as a learner

Literacy and Making: Transform your Workshop into a Makerspace
While makerspaces in our libraries, STEM labs, and innovation spaces are wonderful opportunities for students to tinker, prototype, make, explore,and discover, we can expand our thinking of maker education by infusing it into our core literacy curriculum. Imagine students tinkering with text, prototyping messages to be put down in writing, devising problems for characters, and inventing new ways to communicate. Makerspaces for literacy create a great environment for mixing, remixing, gaming, and discovering, all while becoming lifelong readers and writers. In this session, participants will consider ways to reinvent their own literacy activities to include more opportunities for student making.

Breakout EDU Strategies
As a Breakout EDU Authorized Trainer, I will share my experience and expertise. We will play through a shortened Escape Room themed activity and a similar online Digital Breakout EDU activity. Breakout rooms can stimulate student engagement, cross curricular learning activity, collaboration, and critical tinking. We will discuss strategies for large class sizes and other common concerns for using breakout rooms with students. Finally we will start creating a brand new or transforming an already created Breakout EDU for your classroom.
