Got Code? What's Next After the Hour of Code?
Presentation Site
Did you get a chance to participate in the Hour of Code during CSedweek in December? Code.org put on a world wide event to get students excited about Computer Science and coding. In just one week they had over 17 million people learn to code and over 585 million lines of code written by students.

Do you want to get in on the 21st century skill that will get all of your students interested and motivated to think critically, problem solve and learn to create, not just consume?

Then you need to come learn about the Free resources code.org is offering to teachers to help them get on their way to teaching their students about Computer Science, throught incentives for teachers (free resources and up to $1,000 in donations at Donorschoose), for students (fun interactive lessons and activities and $10 gift cards for online resources).

NASA Smart Skies: DRT Math in Air Traffic Control
Presentation Site
Imagine 40,000 commercial flights per day soaring across United States airspace. Now that’s a pretty hefty real-world distance-rate-time problem! In this session you will learn how to use the context of air traffic control to transform your students’ ability to make sense of and solve distance-rate-time problems using basic middle school math. We will first use an engaging online simulator to model spacing conflicts between two to five airplanes. Then we will use sample material from the paper-and-pencil workbooks to learn how to apply proportional reasoning to solve each problem with strategic route and speed changes. By the end of the session, you will be able to help students mentally detect, analyze, and resolve air traffic conflicts and then communicate a solution that meets both time and spacing requirements. Products featured in this workshop will include the online air traffic control simulator, print-based workbooks, and supporting videos and animations. Participants will also be introduced to Sector 33, a learning enrichment mobile app that challenges students to apply what they have learned in a more game-like setting using their personal smartphone or tablet. All materials demonstrated in this session are free and readily available on the NASA Smart Skies website.

Transforming Today’s Learning Environment through BYOD and Mobile Video Applications
Video-based learning increases retention by 400% according to the Visual Teaching Alliance.

According to Gartner, mobile video software client users grew 340% between 2010 and 2012. It is expected that mobile video users will grow from 429 million to 2.4B in 2016. How are we as educators leveraging this phenomenon?

As the use of live interactive video increases in education - with students and teachers/administrators all connecting - we are increasingly seeing students and teachers issuing devices or promoting use of student own technology devices. In fact, some say that the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) movement is revolutionizing how educators teach and students learn. How are we, as educators, capitalizing on student or faculty owned mobile devices to radically change the learning environment?

In this interactive session, the presenters will provide an overview of desktop and mobile video applications and how they are being used in the collaborative classroom:
• Students become engaged in a “hate to miss” learning environment where they use various devices and software to collaborate, work on projects, participate in problem-based learning whether physically on campus, at a remote site or while traveling.
• Faculty meet face-to-face remotely with one or many pulling in subject matter experts from content providers or businesses. Learn how we can leverage desktop or mobile devices while incorporating other tools in their arsenals such as interactive whiteboards.
• Learn about different education institutions as they share best practices in flexible distance learning and collaboration.
