Explaining Everything about the Morris Cooke Apps
Presentation Site
We will be exploring the incredible and powerful apps Explain Everything, Final Argument, Explain a Website, Stick Around, and Photo Puppet. These are the apps from the Morris Cooke Development Company. We will be exploring ways for teachers to develop content for a Blended Learning approach and ways students can create engaging projects to synthesize and demonstrate their learning. These apps work together very well and create projects (interactive presentations and activities) that are easy to develop, export and upload to websites or a Learning Management System (LMS). These apps give us a great ways to use our iPads to teach any grade level or content area!

This hands-on workshop will give participants an opportunity to create instructional learning outcomes and align assessments to those learning outcomes for a "mini course" of their choosing.

Engaging Students in a Google Apps Classroom

Teaching online or in a blended learning environment can be an overwhelming organizational challenge. We will demonstrate how we used Google Apps in an online Secondary Math II class to engage our students in a paperless environment and to create a classroom folder structure that managed assignments, assessments, and other collaborative interactions.
We will also discuss many of the lessons we learned (including mistakes to avoid) during the planning, set-up, and engagement phases.

Grant Funding and Best Practices in Video-Enabled Learning Spaces
Students and, yes, even faculty expect sophisticated communications anytime, anywhere. They use visual collaboration tools in- and outside of the classroom in new and exciting ways. Indeed, how we teach and how students learn is being transformed. This session focuses on noteworthy technology trends and cool new capabilities. The potential impact of those trends will suggest what may become the next generation of best practices in our teaching. All of this, in turn, helps to suggest our technology needs and, from that, our goals. Ultimately, deployment will depend on dollars – lots of them! – so we will highlight potential grant programs and funding sources that are aimed at technology opportunities.
Come ready to listen and share as participants engage in an interactive and open discussion in key areas:
• Global trends – Explore how the latest collaboration innovations apply to learning spaces.
• Best practices – Learn how others are harnessing technology in their teaching and learning.
• Impediments – Share your challenges and explore possible solutions with us.
• The “How-To’s” of alternative funding
• Relevant grant programs
• Tips and tricks for finding and securing grant funding
