Creating a Safe Haven for All Students
Through technology, teachers now have the opportunity to empower all students to show their thinking in unique ways and participate in learning that make sense for them. But simply putting technology in the hands of students and giving them a project-based assignment isn’t enough to truly open up broader learning spaces for students. We have to also create the rapport and community within our classrooms to ensure that students feel safe working through struggles. By beginning our work with technology with a “Safe Haven” focus, we are more likely to truly engage students in transformational learning with technology.

Digital Media Literacy: Ten Minutes At a Time
Digital media literacy can best be used in small, portable, repeatable units that can be dropped in as a way to critically analyze any media experience, from talking to texting to television. It can do its best work if it becomes a way of thinking that students can use for their own purposes, in their own analysis of other people’s work and in constructing their own. A couple different models can be discussed to show how this can be done.

A Spoonful of Sugar Helps the Editing Go Down...
The writing process can be daunting for most students today who want to write something that meets the requirements of the assignment and turn it in. They barely stop to make sure their name is on the assignment, let alone read what they have written. Students see editing and revising as tasks that take up too much time for very little pay off. After all, if they didn’t notice anything wrong in the first draft, what will they gain by reading it again? Technology can be used to help make the writing process easy and productive. Self-editing and peer editing become helpful and engaging. Students are able to produce better products with fewer errors and really take a good luck at what they are producing. The writing process becomes less of a drudgery and more of an engaging process that can actually be helpful. Technology can also give educators opportunities to give meaningful feedback and support along the way. Students can easily save feedback and drafts for review before other writing projects. These Apps, Chrome extensions, and tools are great for every subject and administration. This workshop is great for anyone who wants or needs to write anything well.

Let Them Teach
Let Them Teach is a movement that allows the students to do the teaching. It was an idea that originally stemmed from one student fussing at me that she "just doesn’t learn like this". That was four years ago. The idea grew. It developed beyond that one student and her one subject. Today this process includes second through 12th grade levels and all subjects. Charged with learning in their own multiple intelligences, the students have now created books, art, lessons and videos. They teach the academic standards not only to themselves, but to each other. This year they are taking it further and extending their reach to children in hospitals, and other schools across the nation.

How to Meaningfully Engage Every Student, Every Day with Pear Deck
Do you ever feel like your students are not "tuned in" during class? If your students have mobile devices in the classroom, you can easily overcome this problem! 1:1 mobile learning environments support many kinds of effective instructional activities, including the ability to meaningfully engage every student, every day. Pear Deck is a modern mobile device-friendly student response system that supports this kind of engagement. If you have thought that student response systems (commonly known as "clickers") are only for multiple choice type questions or for basic activities like exam review, then you need to come and see what Pear Deck can do!

Stop Digital Discrimination: the iPad, Assistive Technology and Accessibility
The iPad is amazing. Out of the box it has some of the most powerful assistive technology available. Built-in accessibility features help students with a wide range of disabilities to independently and successfully navigate around the web and through digital educational material.
The App Store offers apps that go further than what is built into the device. There are apps that help with communication, reading comprehension and even apps that turn printed text into audio.
With this technology in such close reach now, the potential to deploy amazing assistive technology solutions is only getting higher. And that means that we have more opportunities than ever to more fully include students with disabilities into the classroom and student life in general.
But the best assistive technology out there may not be worth a penny if the digital content it interacts with is not accessible.
The second part of this session will put a focus on accessible digital material. You will learn about some of the more common digital barriers to people with disabilities. And more importantly, you will learn how you can help to remove or avoid those barriers altogether.

Student Creators: Cultivating Success & Amplifying Voices with Mobile Blogging
Mobile blogging can be used inside the classroom to increase student engagement. This workshop seeks to both raise awareness of the variety of applications of blogging in the classroom and provide hands-on guidance demonstrating the ease of blogging from a smartphone or tablet. Working in small groups and using personal mobile devices, participants will experience how blogging can be seen as an equalizing technology in a classroom by allowing all students a voice. Both traditional writing and student engagement are transformed with the utilization of cameras, touch screens, and the streamlined app workflows of mobile devices. As we demonstrate the practicality of mobile blogging, participants will also discuss how blogging can be used to increase understanding to yield student success. Between applications in the classroom, research, and academia more broadly, this professional development workshop aims to provide a comprehensive look at what it means to blog in the context of cultivating student success.

Successfully Scale Personalized Learning with iPads What educators should know about iPad management
Providing a unique and impactful learning experience for students is the goal of most, if not all, educators. With iPad and the right mobile device management (MDM) solution, delivering on the promise of a personalized learning experience is now achievable. In our session we show you how streamlined Apple device management helps transform iPad into the ultimate learning tool for each and every student.

When both IT and instructional staff work together a customized and agile experience can be created for each student based upon shared stakeholder input. iPad management capabilities have advanced that allow educators to determine the appropriate level of management policies tied to digital citizenship programs, student readiness, and in-class circumstances. Knowledge is power, and by knowing what is possible with MDM, educators may unlock the potential learning capacity for students using iPad.

You’ll learn:
• How apps and content can be assigned remotely to student devices for an individual experience
• How to provide varying degrees of device access to students rather than a one-size-fits-all approach
• How to use classroom management options to promote student engagement, facilitate assessments, and reduce lost instructional time
• How to give students more “ownership” over their device by giving them choice and privileges

A Spoonful of Sugar Helps the Editing Go Down...
The writing process can be daunting for most students today who want to write something that meets the requirements of the assignment and turn it in. They barely stop to make sure their name is on the assignment, let alone read what they have written. Students see editing and revising as tasks that take up too much time for very little pay off. After all, if they didn’t notice anything wrong in the first draft, what will they gain by reading it again? Technology can be used to help make the writing process easy and productive. Self-editing and peer editing become helpful and engaging. Students are able to produce better products with fewer errors and really take a good luck at what they are producing. The writing process becomes less of a drudgery and more of an engaging process that can actually be helpful. Technology can also give educators opportunities to give meaningful feedback and support along the way. Students can easily save feedback and drafts for review before other writing projects. These Apps, Chrome extensions, and tools are great for every subject and administration. This workshop is great for anyone who wants or needs to write anything well.

The Eye in the Sky Never Lies (swivl style)
Nothing is more embarrassing than learning that your teaching style is tunning out students, you keep repeating words, or looking down when speaking. But if you ask for feedback people will likely say, "it was all right." However, is it really? How do you know your teaching style is not terrible? As my high school football coach once said, "the eye in the sky never lies" and would point to the camera filming the game. The eye, in this case, is the swivl camera. I used the swivl camera using an Ipad to track my teaching style during a financial literacy seminar course and professional development course and learned what to do and what not to do. Using the Ipad to record along with the editing was an easy method than having to use complicated editing software.

The presentation will go over what swivl can bring to teaching, how it can be used to promote your teaching style, and the do's and dont's when using swivl.

In our session we show you how streamlined Apple device management helps transform iPad into the ultimate learning tool for each and every student.

When both IT and instructional staff work together a customized and agile experience can be created for each student based upon shared stakeholder input. iPad management capabilities have advanced that allow educators to determine the appropriate level of management policies tied to digital citizenship programs, student readiness, and in-class circumstances. Knowledge is power, and by knowing what is possible with MDM, educators may unlock the potential learning capacity for students using iPad.

You’ll learn:
• How apps and content can be assigned remotely to student devices for an individual experience
• How to provide varying degrees of device access to students rather than a one-size-fits-all approach
• How to use classroom management options to promote student engagement, facilitate assessments, and reduce lost instructional time
• How to give students more “ownership” over their device by giving them choice and privileges

Education Gaming
Do you like to play games in your spare time? Many students today love to play virtual games on their parents phones, their own tablets, or their computer whenever they have a free second or two. As schools it is our job to inspire students to learn through the use of games. All too often teachers use devices to fill free time, but unfortunately students are able to play whatever they want. Why not use this time to reinforce academic skills through games or introduce students to new and exciting games that have real-world application? Join us to learn more about games that students can use in the classroom to reinforce curriculum.

No more death by PowerPoint, Keynote, or Prezi… How can we teach students to be both effective communicators and digital architects of their own content? This session will blend best practices and research-based strategies and tips for organizing content, designing and constructing slides (including theme, template, and layout), effectively and purposefully using images, color, and data, and delivering memorable presentations. Students weren’t born with a PPT clicker in their fist… BUT what your students don’t know can be taught. This fast-paced session will culminate with a toolkit of support resources for educators including an infographic, curated research and examples, student handouts, intentional revision student surveys, and a list of tools that can support your students with both design and appropriate use of creative commons images. Sprinkle in a few student examples with this fully catered platter of tools and resources and you will find that Savory Slides feeds your hunger for both compelling content and inspiration for appropriate student authorship.
