May 2019 Agenda—Shawnee, Kansas

Facilitating Technology Enriched Classrooms for 21st Century Learners.

Begin at 9:00am

Getting Connected

Digitally…Socially…Spiritually

This is a text block should you decide to add an ice-breaker activity or questions to stimulate conversation to help teachers to get to know one another (see the FDT for ice-breakers). As the year progresses and relationships grow, this time naturally becomes a time of reconnecting to find out what’s been going on in everyone’s lives since the last workshop.

Announcements & Review

1. Letter grades will be submitted to Concordia within the next week for those of you receiving graduate-level credit. Later in May, you will receive an email from the TEC21 Office providing you with your letter grade and letting you know when you can request a transcript from Concordia should you need one for your records.

Goals

1. Understand the value of being both a consumer and a contributor in your professional learning network.

2. Commit to being a connected, resourceful life-long learner.

3. Celebrate each other’s TEC21 achievements through today’s mini-conference format.

Here are some ways TEC21 facilitators and teachers connect online to further build and strengthen their professional learning network:

Twitter: Follow @TEC21_LuthEd the facilitators and many other educators who have embraced this powerful communication tool. Follow and use these hashtags #TEC21lcms & #LuthEd when tweeting!

Facebook: Stay connected with everyone by engaging with TEC21 Educators going all the way back to “Season 1”. What a wonderful way to receive a life-time of support from one another. Also, please help us get the word out to as many teachers as possible about the TEC21 Workshop Program by “Liking” us on the TEC21 Facebook Page

Pinterest

Pinterest: Follow TEC21’s collaborative board and we’ll invite you to pin along with hundreds of other teaches on the shared board! If you don’t receive an invitation, be sure to let one of the facilitators know so we can add you as a collaborator.

Instagram

Instagram: Follow TEC_21 so you can enjoy the fun pics taken at our workshop centers from year to year.

Little or No Prep Tools & Resources

If you are looking for a new way to organize your lesson plans next year, let me encourage you to try out www.planbook.com this summer!  You can even roll-over lessons from previous years! I’ll never go back to paper/pencil lesson plan books!

We have looked at www.readwritethink.org in previous workshops, but here is a new aspect to the website – Cube Creator!

Designed with little ones in mind, Shutterbugs was created by Smithsonian Science Education Center to help young students recognize animal movement and specific adaptations! (Pre-K – Grade 1)

PBS produced 60-second videos on each president. It’s a fun way to summarize each presidency.

BioMan Biology is the fun place to learn Biology! Here you will find learning games, review games, virtual labs and quizzes that will help you to learn about cells, ecology, genetics, physiology, and much more!

Ask a Tech Teacher Blog – Varying resources for students and teachers to wrap up the school year!  Check out this version of Tetris concentrating on geography!

Cookie is a website that provides games and tools aimed at enriching the early childhood process of learning. With ages 3-8 in mind, the site is organized by both subject area and age group

Your favorite lasagna-loving, fat cat, Garfield, guides students through a variety of topics, from standard language arts skills to online safety. Several topics are offered as individual apps.

This is another online quizzing site, very similar to Kahoot!

Just as the title implies…a stash of flashcards! Anything from a to z! Give it a try!

This site has a plethora of fun, interactive games for groups and individuals! Anything from states, colors, to royal wedding dresses! Give it a try!

A variety of helpful teaching tools with just a click!  Especially check out the Image Reveal Tool! Image how much fun that could be to introduce a new topic!

If you have a budding physician in your class, show him/her eskeletons.org! Amazing graphics!

https://www.playposit.com is a Chrome Extension that allows you to make YouTube videos interactive with your students by inserting questions into the video! Here is an example!

And finally…just for fun….How Stuff Works! Just like the name states, you and your students can discover how stuff works, plus so much more!! Try out the quizzes from your childhood!

Lunch Hour at 11:30am/Back to Work at 12:30pm

Collaboration! We are each other’s BEST resources 🙂

The bestowing of award, praise and adulation.

We officially dub you TEC21 Teachers–connected, resourceful life-long learners!

2. Presentation of “diplomas”

3. Presentation of TEC21 Digital Badges

Dear TEC21 Teachers,

As educators, we all know how hard it is to keep up with the needs of students. TEC21 recognizes the extra effort it takes to learn, stretch and grow to provide Technology Enriched Classrooms. We applaud every school who has given the green light to allow teachers to participate in our workshops, and every teacher who has stepped outside his or her comfort zone to be vigorously challenged. Our goal with you is a contagious classroom full of motivated students.

You have earned this badge. We have provided it in two sizes each for school administrators and teachers. We hope you’ll proudly display it on your school website or personal classroom website.

Thank you for making a TEC21 classroom a badge of honor.

Serving Him with you,

The TEC21 Facilitators
