NYSCATE 2016 Lynn Rathbun

The 2016 NYSCATE Conference came to the skyline in Rochester, NY, November 20-22, 2016. NYSCATE (New York State Association for Computers and Technologies) is an organization of dedicated educators who use technology and are committed to transforming teaching and learning, in order to provide our children with an education that prepares them for the future. Below is information from the sessions I attended. All were excellent, thought provoking, and inspiring! Unleash your inner super hero power!

Blending the "Write" Stuff ~ Joanna Van Raden ~ Blended/Online Learning Strand

Ideas on how to blend or flip writing workshop. Students control the time, place, path or pace of their own learning. Online publishing of student work provided. This approach allows for more coaching and conferencing time between teacher and student and more actual writing time.

AR vs VR Which World Do You Live In? ~ Cassie Horton ~ Innovative Technologies Strand

Augmented and virtual reality can bring virtual field trips into the classroom to promote student-directed learning! Use AR Apps, Aurasma, Google Cardboard, and Google Lit Trips to provide innovative instruction that is FUN!

Travel the World with Google Maps ~ Lynne Blum and Kim Derrenbacher ~ 1-1 Learning Environment Strand

Google My Maps can help students visualize and understand the world around them in all subject areas and grade levels. Students create, collaborate, and share maps on topics then add video, graphics, and audio to further explain where you are and what you're seeing.

Blogging 101: Authentic Audiences Enhance Learning ~ Lee Araoz ~ 1:1 Learning Environment

"Blogging gives students a true purpose for writing and offers opportunities to connect authentically with others. This enhances learning as students are actively creating content rather than passively consuming it." Web-based applications used for blogging include KidBlog, Padlet, and SeeSaw. Poll students using Mentimeter.

Students share their creations with other students in a safe environment.

Ignite Deeper Learning with Adobe Spark ~ Monica Burns ~ 1:1 Learning Environment Strand

"Students can create dynamic, engaging presentations that demonstrate their understanding and connect to an authentic audience. Students become movie makers and storytellers."
