Keynote 1 - Designing Learner Engagement in the Modern Classroom: What do we cut? What do we keep? What do we create?
As schools grapple with the challenges facing our learners, their families and ourselves as educators, we have an opportunity to consider the most purposeful and effective approaches for designing learning experiences.  What have we learned thus far in the initial triage period of the COVID19 crisis that can serve us in our planning?  What pedagogy and approaches should we select for curriculum and teaching?   We will explore our options for both shaping long term planning and format of a school down to the granular choices in the lesson plan.  Examples from across the country and internationally will be shared reflecting how educators are addressing the challenge of creating responsive contemporary school environments.

Workshop 1A: Beyond the Why and Into the How: Practical Steps Toward Inclusive Classrooms
Description: We know the startling opportunity gap in education and society.  We've learned about identity, culture, communication, and power and how they privilege some and disenfranchise others.  We are convinced as to why diversity and inclusion are important, but we are unsure or unclear as to how this intention becomes positive impact on student lives.  How do we turn commitment into action, and what are some strategies and best practices to become the educator with whom all children thrive?

Workshop 1B: Transdigital Lessons: Infusing Creativity Across Traditional and Digital Methods
The transdigital approach merges both traditional and digital methods across physical and digital spaces in transformative ways. Our iPad art room allows students to make art physically then extend the learning digitally. See how a media-rich, hands-on program engages students in the classroom and beyond. This workshop will highlight key ways in which teachers can transform their educational practices by engaging students in transdigital practices while students create, connect, respond, and present their work. I will lead attendees through examples of three types of transdigital art to empower each learner to use these techniques to creatively integrate technology into any curricular content. All 275+ of my STEAM art lessons, resources, student examples, and implementation notes are available on my blog indexed here: https://www.smore.com/tgcne

Workshop 2A: Safe to Brave: Courageous Conversations
Description: Talking about topics like identity, difference, and oppression can raise anxiety for many people, and yet we must have the conversation in our schools and our lives in order to be more inclusive and culturally competent. What are the fears and common pitfalls that keep us from broaching topics like race, gender, class, etc.? What are ways we might engage more authentically, respectfully, and effectively across difference? Learn to participate in truly courageous conversations.

Workshop 3B: PBL Gets a “Make”-Over – Prompts, Scaffolding, and Assessment for STEAM and Maker Classrooms
Of course students should have powerful hands-on project-based experiences in classrooms and makerspaces – but how does that happen? This session will explore how to design engaging prompts with helpful (but not TOO helpful) scaffolding. We will also discuss how to manage the project process when students are using cutting edge technology integrated with iterative design. Participants will learn about new research on assessment for projects and real classroom practices with students using modern technology and materials.

10:30am

Workshop 3A: Designing Modern Assessments and Meaningful Feedback Approaches to Develop Self-Directed Learners
An assessment is a demonstration of learning.   How can we design relevant and timely assessment and meaningful feedback approaches to support the needs of our modern learners?  In our interactive workshop, we will address these questions and how to cultivate self-directed learning skills and self-monitoring capacities to ensure sustained growth over time.    This session will dive into strategies for planning engaging and fresh inquiry into contemporary topics and issues.  We will learn how to "upgrade" assessment with timely new forms that are authentic and anchored in place-based learning.    Diving into a vast array of real examples, you will be inspired to expand the possibilities for your learners to show their progress and inquiry.  Bring your laptops or tablets to this interactive session!

Workshop 4B: Ethics and Empathy in a STEAM Powered World
How can educational technology prepare students to be global citizens of the future? This session will dive into projects that go beyond digital citizenship to use technology in innovative ways to help students develop empathy for others. Ethical behavior is an outcome of identifying with other people, and students of all ages can learn about ethics in the context of cross-curricular projects that include both digital and physical components. Breakthroughs in AI, bio-hacking, robotics, media manipulation, and digital fabrication offer interesting opportunities for students to learn about the cutting edge of science, and how ethical decision-making can make the world a better place for all.

Workshop 4A: Active Literacy: Integrating Classical Print Literacy with Digital, Media, and Global Competence
All of our learners rely on classical literacy skills in reading, writing, speaking, and listening to communicate, research, and innovate.  These same skills are foundational to the new literacies: digital, media, global.  In this session, Dr. Jacobs will draw from her extensive work in showing teachers precisely how they can develop both in their classrooms.    Come prepared for a "hands-on" experience exploring strategies for improving the language capacity of your learners, writing proficiency, speaking and listening capability even as you employ modern tools and applications. You will leave with a wealth of resources to support your practice and encourage your learners’ investigations. Thoughtful development of social networks and resources to expand the reach of the classroom will be central to our session. Bring your laptop or device!
