Lecture 3.0 - The Future of Teaching and Learning
This session will engage users in a discussion around the evolution of lecture. How can we compete with today’s technology and distractions without losing the integrity of our academic work? We will share the various lecture schemas and strategies that have worked in keeping up with the changing landscape. Let’s discuss how technology has impacted the way we teach, the nuanced relationship between teacher:technology and how we can leverage technology to strengthen that relationship between teacher:student during the lecture. Is all lecture bad? Should it be replaced or can it evolve and how can we force that evolution? We’ll tackle these questions and leave middle/high school participants with ideas they can take back to their school on how to re-examine their own teaching styles. Apps we will discuss include: Nearpod, Keynote and ClassKick. Audience: Intermediate to advanced skill level.

Social Media: Engagement and Assessment
Simulating social media feeds using a learning management system in the classroom creates space for students to practice historical empathy and alternative points of view and demonstrate content mastery. Students assume roles from various time periods and react to scenarios presented in "real-time" to synthesize historical facts and primary sources and create historically empathetic points of view. Rubrics provide feedback and gain insight into mastery. Attendees comfortable with tech will interact with tools to experience activity first hand. Presenters will provide resource and rubrics. Session topic may be tailored to fit all school levels. See all presentation information at http://www.castilleja.org/iteach2016

How the Maker-Space Movement Will Re-build the Way We Do School!
When we got approval to turn our old computer lab into a new maker-space, we first made a list of all the things we wanted - 3d printers, milling machines, soldering kits and laser cutters. We predicted technical challenges when we established our school’s maker-space last year. However, we were unprepared for the cultural rift it caused. The new Spark Studio challenged our school’s pedagogical tradition and inspired resistance from many faculty members. Join us for a frank discussion about our experiences establishing a maker-space from scratch - the lovely surprises and the unforeseen tensions that occurred.

Many schools are looking to establish a maker-space in their community. This will be a discussion of how maker-spaces are affecting schools on a cultural level. In order to be truly transformative in the lives of our students we have had to embrace the idea that we must break down the traditional order that schools impose and rebuild from a true 21st century perspective. Students and Faculty have to learn to value experimentation, collaboration, innovation and failure. This is the most important role of teachers within a maker-space.

iPads for Learning Differences: Notetaking & Organization
Whether taking notes in class or gathering web research, students with learning differences often struggle with effectively capturing and organizing information from a variety of sources. This hands-on, beginner-level session will focus on two apps that address these challenges.  With Notability, students can handwrite or type notes, sketch, take pictures, annotate PDFs, and record audio that automatically links to the notes. Evernote is an online “digital filing cabinet” to help students both capture and organize many types of information from a wide variety of sources.

Prior to the session, participants will need to purchase and install Notability, and also sign up for a free Evernote account and download the Evernote app.

*This is one of a four-session series that will cover a wide range of iPad features, apps, and associated strategies to assist students who learn differently.  Attend only one session or the entire track. We strongly recommend that participants download and install certain apps in advance (most are free) and have iPads running iOS 8.x or 9.x.

Get your gremlins out of the way, so you can be fully there for your students!
People are most successful when their wellbeing is optimized. But all of us have a squad of gremlins (the inner critic voices in our heads) that are masterful at bringing us down and keeping us from our potential. It’s time to “dance with the gremlins” so we can be our best selves for our students. In this session, we will learn how to tame our gremlins through the power of self compassion and vulnerability so we can be fully present with our students.

Apps to Review Concepts
Learning content in any course requires review. Some students need more time than others. You can do short assessments to see what students already know, you can use quick reviews to bridge a previous lesson with new material, or "put it all together" at the end of a unit. Some apps are ideal for getting the whole class active in review. However, other times we need to assign self-paced independent work. In this session we will sample a few apps that you can use with your students to review concepts in many ways: Quizlet, Kahoot! and Inspiration Maps.

Please come with Apps downloaded to save time.
This session is best accomplished with both a laptop and an iPad.

Let's Have a Smashing Good Time with Apps!
iPads are an awesome tool for creating in the classroom, but there isn't one app that does it all. Come learn how to "smash apps" to make them work for you. For example, you can make a drawing in one app, then smash it with another app to add text, and then put it in to another to add a voice recording. This is a hands-on session where we will get creative with how we use apps! Download the apps Paper by 53, Canva, Padlet, iMovie, and Tellagami in preparation. This is a skill that all grade levels can become great at! Audience: intermediate to advanced iPad users.

Design Thinking + Learning Spaces
In the spirit of taking a creative approach to learning spaces, this session will outline the process of design thinking and how we can leverage the iPad and other mobile technologies to make this process collaborative. Design thinking is a human-centered approach to problem solving & design. Too often schools are looking at space and furniture, but how can we include student and teacher needs in the planning process.

We will have a boot-camp style run through of the entire process together. We'll reflect on how we can use this in our classrooms --- how can we engage in this process to design the best learning spaces for our students? Most of all-- how can we use this to approach to integrate technology meaningfully into our work? Apps we will discuss include: Roomly, Popplet and Kahoot.
