Closed-Circuit TV Show for Your School
Create a daily TV show for your school that impacts all students, all days!  We will look at both a cable-based TV setup, and using an online webinar type of approach with ZOOM.  Either way, techniques will be shared that show how to spotlight and motivate and enlighten students using a sight-n-sound approach (no more intercom-only announcements!).  We will go over how to make use of 1) powerpoint slides in conjunction with someone speaking live into a microphone, 2) document camera to show things such as student work, 3) live cam to allow them to view and hear any student or staff or guest addresssing the entire school without having to lose time-on-task by going to/returning from an assembly, and 4) camcorder pre-recorded scenes that can spolight students or show various procedures.  The possibilities are endless, and the impact of your students being able to see and hear--not just hear--is very powerful!

Developing leadership through the lens of authentic learning
This presentation is designed to engage a meaningful discussion about how
teachers can empower students to take ownership of their own learning.

Developing positive and influential student leaders is important for students for several reasons. When a student feels their learning is contributing to, or influencing, a larger conversation, learning becomes more impactful, meaningful, and engaging.
