Bringing Coding into the Real World: Connecting Hardware to Scratch
Coding is more than a keyboard and a screen. Students can connect hardware such as Makey Makey and Microbit to the block based coding program Scratch to create new inventions, design custom controllers and bring student ideas to life. Teachers will become familiar with the tools and collaborate on ideas to incorporate this technology into curriculum. This interactive workshop will allow teachers to learn through hands-on experience with Makey Makey, Microbit and Scratch 3.0.

Collaborative Coding: Empowering students to learn to code together.
Coding should not look like a silent classroom with students working independently. The OYOClass platform turns the classroom into a collaborative world. Student Mentors become leaders in the class, and this creates a community of learners. The seventh-grade coding curriculum at Merrick Avenue introduces students to several different programming languages. During that time students create projects in those languages that allow them to choose their own paths and interests. The capstone project takes all of their skills and creates a showcase for their work in the form of a website portfolio.

Creating Preferable Futures
There are three kinds of futures; possible, probable, and preferable. All too often those trying to both innovate and sustain technology based innovations need to recognize and respect the process of successful planning by overlooking or lacking the futuring processes needed to embed and more importantly, align their exciting change with their deeper purposes. This workshop will show decision maker skills and strategies they can use to engage everyone to view their probable future and decide whether this matches with their preferred future so that they can action design to realize their want.

Datability Web: Easy Data Collection & Analysis for Better Student Outcomes
As a special education teacher and a lover of technology, I'm always looking for software to help streamline my day and keep me organized. When our district gave us chrome books, I looked everywhere for a program that would help me collect data on my student's IEP goals. When I couldn't find anything to suit my needs, I decided to start my own company and create one my self. Through my company, Dembry LLC, I produced Datability Web, a web based data collection program. Users can import their IEP goals, then receive reminders when it's time to collect data. Datability Web produces full color reports with graphed percentages, full color pictures, and notes.

Flip Out: Flipping Your Classroom
Have you ever been interested in flipping your classroom? Do you feel like you need to change your day to day pedagogy? This presentation will go over the steps to create lecture or instructional videos that students can watch for homework and how to incorporate Edpuzzle to embed questions to check for student understanding (and to make sure they watched).  Through this, teachers can utilize the classroom for small group or one on one instruction to work on skill and project-based learning.  While this session will utilize Social Studies as the model, any subject could benefit from the flipped model.

Full STEAM Ahead to the Carnival!
This presentation will show how students can become the designers of their own carnival to develop collaboration and business skills while showing off their creative talents. Using mathematics and technology classes, as well as the engineering design process learned in science class, lessons on probability, coding, algebra, geometry, and science have given students empowerment in their learning while becoming confident problem solvers. Presenters will show how this project can teach students science, technology, engineering, art, and math skills as students create carnival games by using a 3D-Printer to code, print, and build their own games. Students were tasked with designing a carnival game given business parameters and goals. The students then presented their games and math findings during a Carnival Day when students throughout the school came to play the carnival games and learn about math.

K'Nex Kars For Kids
Maker Spaces, Innovation Labs, Creative Closet...whatever you want to call it...who has the time, money and expertise for all of that nonsense...and how does it REALLY apply to the content area? Fear not Third though Fifth Grade Teachers. I may not have THE definitive answer (Nobody does), but I have an extensive unit of study using standard K'nex parts and a few other things that are probably lying around your school somewhere. Your children will build cars to accomplish 3 different tasks (distance, accuracy and breaking) that blend in nicely with weight, length and budgeting. It also includes friction, center of gravity, weight distribution, potential and kinetic energy and the entire Engineering Process. (PLUS IT'S NON-CONSUMABLE!) Additional benefits are teamwork, compromise, cooperative learning and public speaking. So visit us at K'NEX KARS FOR KIDS...and build some cars today!

Learning Through Play: A New Model to Teach Entrepreneurship
Entrepreneurship education continues to grow and develop worldwide. When thinking about the ‘future of learning’, it is obvious that the knowledge and skills necessary for the next generation might be different from those needed today. Computer simulation games have long been popular with young adult learners who, as a generation with extended exposure to modern video games, are particularly receptive to a computer-enhanced learning platforms. Employing the powerful complement of gamification and simulation to traditional teaching results in lessons that are productive, meaningful, engaging, and fun. Computer simulation games allow students to create and run a business, be tested by challenges and setbacks, take risks. By incorporating e-learning technology and game play in business education modeling, lessons become more relevant and outcomes are measurable.
