How to effectively support Lesson Differentiation and Modalities of Learning
Limited Capacity filling up

Most teachers understand the diverse needs of students within their classrooms but have difficulty providing the range of materials needed to consistently support their varying needs. Differentiated instruction is an approach to teaching and learning that can help to consistently support students on all levels. Its purpose is to maximize students’ growth and success by meeting students where they are (Huebner, 2010). Richardson provides further clarification by stating, “Students should not just be expected to fit into the curriculum and do well. The curriculum should be used as a guide to plan differentiated lessons for students” (2011). Although there are no definitive plans to follow when implementing differentiated instruction, it does require that teachers continuously assess students and adjust their instruction accordingly (The Center, 2009). In her book, The Differentiated Classroom: Responding to the Needs of All Learners, Tomlinson notes general guidelines for a differentiated classroom (1999)...

Using digital video for performance assessment and professional development
Limited Capacity seats available

In this presentation we provide an overview of new tools, techniques and models for using digital video to strengthen evaluation of student performance a reflecting on ones own practice as a teacher. First we will demonstrate some essential practices for capturing good video and audio in the classroom. Second, we present the different post production techniques and hosting solutions that teachers and students can use to reflect on performance and distribute the video. Using appropriate equipment and methods to capture video and then placing it in the right multimedia context optimizes the quality, depth, and value of reflections.

Technically, we will demonstrate “micro” studios that use small cameras like
smart phones or iPod Touches with discreet tripods or clips to capture video with little impact in the classroom. We also will demonstrate the use of robot camera mounts from Swivl to combine media presentation with instructional recording. We will demonstrate online hosting solutions from Vimeo and EdThena as platforms for collaborative analysis of video. We will demonstrate methods and tools for recording good audio of the speaker in the classroom.

Video over IP Infrastructure - Stream Live!
Limited Capacity seats available

PHM’s 15 elementary, middle, and high school needed help transitioning to digital video—a widespread challenge faced by schools and other large institutions today. PHM were interested in finding a way to take video content, convert it to IP, and distribute it through the networks they already had in place.
PHM schools are now using the Inca HD AVC Encoder 3410 for their in-school TV studios to deliver school programming, such as morning announcements, and the Inca SD Encoder and Receiver 3410 to receive off-air HD channels like ABC, PBS, and NBC for multicast across their network. “The video quality is excellent and the schools are very happy with the high-def off-air channels we’re pulling down for them.

1:1 and Learning Management Systems: Planning for integration and measuring impact on student learning
Limited Capacity seats available

The demands of classroom assessment and the trends for 1:1 too frequently are disconnected initiatives in K12 schools. Yet, if we connect the two systematically, we can advance best practices of assessment with the engaging capacities of 1:1 technologies. 1:1 is much more than devices; 1:1 is a digital hardware that makes learning management systems (LMS) work in classrooms. More importantly, an LMS is the foundation of a 1:1 strategy. In this presentation, we discuss the qualities of a LMS and how an assessment loop can be designed in concert with 1:1 devices to have fully aligned content combined with great teaching that results in measurable student learning. The most important component of a 1:1 strategy is not the device, but the LMS and a method for designing and facilitating assessable content and instruction.

1:1 devices take on many forms and are often tied closely to the content production ecosystems that teachers and students use in 21st century classrooms. The physical form factors can include laptops, tablets, hybrids, and handheld devices. This is the industrial design dimension. Furthermore, 1:1 requires use of some kind of Learning Management System (LMS) and some kind of production ecosystem (e.g. Google Docs, Apple iWork or Office 365, which are ideally integrated with the LMS). The 1:1 ecosystem makes up the interaction design dimension. These two dimensions—industrial and interaction—inform how teachers and schools select of device strategy for 1:1 initiatives.
