On the Air - 602
One of the greatest benefits of 21st century technology infused classrooms, is the integration of authentic audiences.  Launching a student-led radio station has enabled our students to reach listeners worldwide with “live, local” shows produced solely by students.  Podcasting empowers students to innovatively craft their own digital learning experiences through independent and collaborative discovery and creation, while addressing the new media, speaking and listening, research, and writing standards.  Imagine broadcasting live through automation and streaming- always on the air.  No streaming servers to support or drain on facility bandwidth, which is a concern in most school corporations.  All that is required is a Mac and an Internet connection.  Is your vision to empower students to innovatively craft their own digital learning experiences through discovery and creation?

Classroom iPads will only work as a teaching tool if you set them up as one from the very beginning.

That app is to hard for my kids, they aren't capable of doing that. I would love the chance to show you how I manage what others think will only result in mayhem!.

OrangeSlice Rubric
I am a high school science teacher at Angola High. I feel developing a student’s literacy and writing skills are foundationally important in developing a student’s critical thinking skills. Once a student reflects and can meaningfully articulate what they have learned, then I feel they have deepened and cemented their achieved mastery level.

Using Video to Engage your Students & Track their Progress - 607
This session will show teachers how to take any video from YouTube, Vimeo, etc. and make it perfect for the classroom and more engaging for the students. This session will introduce the use of Edpuzzle, Videonot.es and Vialogues to make any video a true lesson by making it to the point, personal and effective. These tools can also provide data about your students so you know if they truly understand the lesson. These tools would be perfect for Elearning days, for substitute lesson plans, or flipping the classroom.
