Culturally Responsive Teaching & Global Awareness in a Pre-K - 2nd Classroom
I will discuss how I increase global awareness and culturally responsive teaching in my kindergarten classroom through the use of technology and play. Culturally responsive teaching can impact learning and brain function. I use powerful pictures of kids from around the world to have powerful discussions during morning meeting. This allows me to implement culturally responsive teaching while allowing the students practice their language skills. I also teach my students about diverse world changers through a variety of books and videos. They completed a S.O.L.E. (Student Organized Learning Environment) project where students used technology such as Pebble Go and Epic! to choose which world changer they would like to further research. This project engaged students through choice and allowed them to be independent with technology in their learning. I will discuss how I incorporate global awareness through play and STEAM

A Good Place To Start: The Beginning with How to Use Tech
In this world of a variety of tools, apps, and programs, it can be difficult to know where to begin for how to approach an audience when sharing a tool. The best place to start can actually be the very beginning with how the tool works. Sample tutorials for a variety of G Suite apps will be demonstrated in this session with step by step procedures. The process by which one can create a tutorial for one’s own school district will be shared as a conclusion to this session.

Igniting Passion and Resilience in your Students Through STEAM
How can you motivate students and then guide them in the right direction while inventing to solve a problem and build confidence and resilience in your student?  Students need to be led to a project they are passionate about and will push the boundaries of their knowledge.  Motivate, instill good collaboration skills and problem-solving through the ideas that will be introduced.  Get students inventing while covering curriculum and learning new skills and emphasizing the importance of failure and grit!

The not so secret life of students: digital privacy issues for today’s youth
Are we teaching students about Big Data on a broad enough scope?  Do our students know how their data can be collected and shared with others?  A quick overview of the topic and some questions to ask ourselves as educators.

Will Technology Make Teachers Obsolete?
In an age where students can access any content from anywhere at any time, how can we justify teaching it? What is the role of a educator in the digital age? Consider the ed tech that has changed how students learn. Reflect on why teachers are still necessary and how teaching can change to prepare students in the 21st century.
