CDW-G Preparing Students for Careers of Tomorrow with Google
We’ve all seen the stats and heard the anecdotes about the challenges of preparing students for jobs that don’t exist yet. But there are foundational skills that we can confidently say will serve our students well in a wide range of fields. Join the education teams from CDWG and Google for a discussion and overview of tools produced and used by Google and others to train employees, customers and partners on digital transformation, digital marketing, entrepreneurship, web development and basic digital literacy skills. This session will briefly review Google’s Applied Digital Skills curriculum which is intended for middle school students through adults and then cover a variety of content and certifications - such as Google’s Academy for Ads, Developer’s Training and Entrepreneurship Skills  -geared towards advanced middle schoolers and high schoolers.

Create Your Own Online District PD Academy for Teachers
Over the last 2+ years, the Hauppauge School District has embarked on a journey to effectively integrate a variety of technologies into our classrooms to engage our students. To support teachers with timely and effective professional development in alignment with this vision, Hauppauge district leaders partnered with the Hauppauge Teachers Union and TEQ to facilitate online, asynchronous learning courses. This session will serve as a reflection of the journey, including the technical, contractual, logistical and practical considerations and challenges.

Creating a Future Ready Learning Community
This session is intended for teachers, administrators,  library media specialists and all change makers.

Libraries are the center of learning and where we learn matters.  How do our current physical spaces promote or hinder the learning process? How do we provide opportunities for all of our learners to grow?  Is one of our goals to make sure our students are participants in an ever-changing global community? Do we want to foster and support opportunities for our teachers to continually grow and learn? If so, then we need to provide learning spaces and opportunities that amplify the type of learning needed to support these intentions. That means we need flexible learning environments that allow for collaboration, creation, personal responsibility, project management and the ability for all learners to showcase their learning.


Lynn Ortlieb, David Steinberg, Sarah Wasser and Kristina Holzweiss from Syosset High School will walk you through the journey of transforming their library into a true future ready learning commons."

Empowering CS From Within
"It is proven that the younger a person starts to learn a language, the easier it will be for that person to learn. This same principal holds true when we turn to technology. Not sure if this is true? Give an iPad to an 8 year old and to a 48 year old and see which one learns how to use it first.

At Westhampton Beach we are implementing a method of empowering high school students to mentor elementary and middle school students as they learn to code. This method of empowering student mentors creates a powerful learning experience for both the mentor and the mentees.

Come Join us as we share our experience and explain how easy it is to set this in motion at your district.

We will also share various coding resources to utilize in the classroom to engage students in the coding process."

MarsFarm: The Future of Food
Teams of student engineers have been charged with creating a fully automated vertical hydroponics vegetable garden that can be used to grow food in harsh environments. Design teams are responsible for collecting, analyzing, and responding to individual variables within the system. Their projects involve wiring, calibrating, and coding sensors that are programmed on Arduino microcontrollers. They have also designed and 3D printed sensor housings and project boxes to mount and protect their monitoring systems. System data is then interfaced with Raspberry Pi computers for remote monitoring on IoT dashboards that can be viewed from a device of their choosing.

Virtual Reality - Learning Through Experiences (w/students)
"Technology when used thoughtfully engages students in the learning. Virtual reality in the classroom is no different. However, VR sparks students' curiosity and leads to more in-depth activities that allow students to own their learning. VR helps visual learners grasp concepts by experiencing their learning.

Visceral reactions to what we are experiencing are fundamental to forming memories. VR makes it easy to engage students the whole time, making experiences memorable.

Attendees will learn how to use the Google Expeditions app to engage their students in learning. This is a hands on session."
