Making the Home School Connection Through Family Code Night
In our fourth year of the Elementary STREAM program in Glen Cove (2017), we realized many of our families still did not have a true understanding of what STREAM is and what elementary students do in our STREAM classes. In order to engage families and showcase student learning, we invited families for a District Wide Elementary Family Code Night. This night was inspired by our students and their passion for STREAM. We researched various Family Code/STREAM nights and came up with a unique plan that would work for the families and students in our district. Family Code Night started last year and will continue to be an annual event for us in Glen Cove for many years to come. In our second year, it will be evolving to include more STREAM activities that are not limited to just coding and robotics. We would like to share our journey with the attendees at the conference to help them in engaging families outside of the classroom through a Family Code or STREAM Night of their own. This event was truly a team effort that required the assistance and dedication of many members of the Glen Cove School District. Our district Science and Technology Coordinators will be explaining their roles in the event and how they supported the STREAM teachers in this initiative. The STREAM teachers will share their vision and how they imagined, planned, created and then improved this event in its second year.

Social Studies and English All Mashed Up: An Interdisciplinary, Blended Learning Approach
English and Social Studies often share related standards and content. They require a similar set of skills, so why not mesh these curricula together? Discover how we have combined 8th grade Social Studies and English into one powerfully designed, differentiated course. Our primary focus is to build reading comprehension and writing skills, such as analysis of enduring issues and recognition of author’s purpose. Hear how we incorporate the use of simulations, designed to put students in challenging, real-life situations and present them with dilemmas for which they must use critical, higher-level thinking skills to figure out. Students take on such roles as homesteaders in the Wild West, big business tycoons, immigrant laborers in a coal mine, Greek gods interviewed for the news, investors in a skyrocketing stock market, lawyers in a literary mock trial, Progressive reformers starring in reality TV shows, and Beat coffeehouse poets. See how digital tools enhance these blended learning experiences, including Google apps and extensions, NoodleTools for research, TurnItIn for remedying plagiarism, DoInk for easy green screen video editing, and Verso for online discussion.

Storytelling: Beyond Pencil and Paper
"How can digital storytelling in an elementary school (grades 3 and 4) enhance engagement in writing as well as the motivation and ability to create higher quality writing? In particular, what happens as students move beyond the novelty or entertainment effect of new technology to adoption in their regular literacy activities? This presentation focuses on three programs: Hatch, Bloxels, and Story Maker.

Hatch is an adaptation of Scratch programming. Hatch is an amazing way to incorporate computational thinking while supporting digital storytelling.

Using Hatch as a digital storytelling tool, students can:
*Create poetry
*Create short stories related to a piece of literature
*Create and/or illustrate a math problem
*Research and report about a career
*Research and report about a historical figure, scientist, etc.
*Illustrate a current event

Bloxels is an intuitive platform for creating video games in a classroom. When students build games, they become the writers, artists, designers, and developers of their own interactive stories.

Story Maker is an animated program. Story Maker transforms classrooms into animation studios which gives students the tools to write and produce original animated stories. Each Story Maker project is designed to promote literacy, collaboration, critical thinking, creativity, and other vital 21st century skills. Best of all, students take pride in creating animated stories they can share with the world."

Suite Dreams (Are Made of These Add-ons)
Some of them want to use you. Some of them want to be used by you. Add-ons for G Suite run inside Google Forms, Sheets, Slides, and Docs are “added on” to the document to enhance its capability. Theses add-ons can increase productivity, support creativity, enhance teaching and learning, and generally increase the capability of the G Suite items you regularly use. Participants will explore ways in which we can leverage these tools in the classroom to create more engaging and productive learning environments. We will also discuss how to use these outside the classroom to be more productive and efficient. Some examples of G Suite add-ons we may discuss are (not limited to) Form Publisher, Form Limiter, Form Notifications, Choice Eliminator, Pear Deck, Screencastify for Slides, Easy Bib, Copy Comments, Easy Accents, Doc Appender, Flat, Paletti, Translate, Lucid Chart, Yet Another Mail Merge, and Power Tools. Suite Dreams are made of these- who am I to disagree?

The Power of Video in the Hands of Students and Teachers
Within this presentation, participants will learn and explore how the power of video creation in the hands of students, teachers, and administrators transcends basic communication and collaboration throughout a school district. Plainview-Old Bethpage CSD has embraced this creative form of communication, and has invested in a new “web-based” video creation software program called WeVideo. Within this creative app, students, teachers, and administrators have the ability to create fun and refreshing content on the web, from anywhere, and collaborate on video edits as a class or group. Come explore the many ways Plainview-Old Bethpage has harnessed the power of video to “unlock” hidden talents of their stakeholders- and provide community members, parents, and staff a creative way to view information, lessons, and fun activities within the District.

You Had Me At Buncee: Creation Made Easy
At the top of Bloom’s Digital Taxonomy of “power verbs” exists our number one goal for students when leveraging technology in our classrooms: Creating. The process of creation certainly leads to products that tell the story of design thinking and learning.  What if schools had access to a digital tool that could connect students across the globe, that provides a foundation for growing readers and writers, that helps give voice to English Language Learners, that could add appealing visuals to math, that allows a school leader to easily grab the attention of his/her community? What if this tool already exists? Don’t miss this session where we explore how Buncee will make you and your students fall deeper in love with the art of creation.
