Clickers: BYOD with ClickerSchool
Presentation Site
ClickerSchool is online formative assessment at its best with games and polls using clickers, smartphones, laptops, or tablets. In this presentation we’ll provide an overview on how you can gain immediate insight into students’ strengths and weaknesses by bringing your own device (BYOD). We’ll begin by introducing you to ClickerSchool, covering the features and process of acquiring an account. After a brief introduction we’ll proceed into a series of interactive activities, inviting session participants to use their smartphones, tablets, or laptops to engage in a small selection of our subject library. ClickerSchool blends BYOD and hardware clickers seamlessly and Eduware will be providing hardware clickers for participants without devices. Participants will have opportunities to ask questions throughout and will have a chance to provide feedback at the end of the session.

I have been teaching scratch to students for the past 4 years. I do weeklong summer courses through UVU for Scratch. I presented on Scratch last year which is more complicated than Scratch Jr. This is a basic Scratch program which can be learned a bit quicker.

Language Arts with Symbaloo
Presentation Site
Make a collection of language arts resources and tools. Use Symbaloo to send students to websites. A click is better than typing a huge URL correctly. Picture links are better than a list of URLS. Instant updating is better than revising and resending. Embedding in the website you already have is better than starting over. My favorite dozen Language Arts iPad apps.

Nearpod: Making Note Taking FUN!
Presentation Site
"This is fun!" "We should do this more often." "This is my favorite activity I've done all year!" These are just a few of the extremely positive comments I got from my seventh grades students after using Nearpod for the first time in my classroom and the funny thing is, we were just taking notes. Nearpod transforms note taking into an interactive, engaging activity that all of my students love and benefit from.
