Slide 2

This is another option for an Overview slides using transitions.

Slide 3

We were snowed out for Bergen and Essex counties in February. I gave people the opportunity to learn and receive a PD certificate through an e-learning snow day. Do you have any questions?

Slide 4

One of the communication strategies we learned last month was to use Post-It Notes for storyboard brainstorming. In the Hudson and Union groups we decided to do a share out of what was working or where suggestions were needed from the previous month before our workshop. We will end with time to let others know what people need assistance with for the end of the workshop. This is your time. We will pause for at least 10 minutes to have some group conversation led by you.

Slide 5

We have been talking about how being connected to other educators online can have interesting benefits. I had posted the video about TuvaLabs for the snow day work. I was surprised when I got a like on the video by one of the company partners within hours of posting it. Last week I was looking at teacher created group postings in Edmodo and saw a note about TuvaLabs. I was starting to leave a comment when I suddenly realized this was the person who liked the video. We exchanged emails and I had a 30 minute conversation with him. If you want to get a little deeper involvement in TuvaLabs (or one of your teachers do) let me know.

Slide 6

I want to spend about 30 minutes on Rubicon Atlas at the beginning and 30 minutes on Diigo at the end and the rest of the time with Sphero.

Slide 7

This is the website to log on to your account. You do not type www in front of the website address. Your initial password is dream.

Slide 8

If you type the wrong thing, you will be prompted to try again.

Slide 9

One you are confirmed you will log into the system.

Slide 10

This will be your main page for our test. Your only course will be Technology for the grade level you requested. I tried very hard to get you at least one of your three choices.

Slide 11

Once you click the link, you will be able to give your lesson a name. It can be a Unit that lasts one class or multiple classes. You can see the weeks laid out on the calendar.

Slide 12

I have given this unit the name Word Processing Sentences. It will last from Week 29 to Week 29. In my case this will be a one class period lesson. We are strengthening ideas from the standards that were slowly laid out from September to March.

Slide 13

Once it is set, the words move to the bottom of the screen. The Unit Name you typed becomes a clickable link. You can see a blue strip representing this unit on the calendar.

Slide 14

Clicking on the link brings you to the main unit development area. We will be learning how to use all the field next year. Feel free to experiment but understand you only need to choose the Standards so that we can begin to see where the standards fall within the bands of K-2 3-5 and 6-8.

Slide 15

The only standard you will be choosing is RCAN: Technology.

Slide 16

Next you will place checkmarks in one or more the standards based on this Unit.

Slide 17

After clicking Save the list will appear under Standards. You can delete or choose more standards.

Slide 18

You will see that there are many more blanks that we could fill in. For our purposes none of this is necessary. You may type anything you want but this will be the focus of the 2015-2016 school year.

Slide 19

To add another unit, you will click Develop and choose the Technology Grade level you were assigned, type a new Unit Name and give it a new range of weeks and choose Save.

Slide 20

When you are ready you can click on the new link and choose the standards.

Slide 21

When you are ready you can click on the new link and choose the standards.

Slide 22

The Logout button is on the upper right corner of the screen. Please add your lessons for the remainder of the year. As you have time, go back through your lesson plan and log other lessons and standards you have met since September. The goal is to have as much as possible reflecting the one grade’s technology skills logged for 2014-2015. We will pick up with this next September so do not overwhelm yourself with the September through February skills. Add them if you think it fits in your schedule.

Slide 23

I bought a Sphero for my husband’s birthday back in April because I was curious about and I thought it would be fun for him to explore. Imagine my surprise when Dr. Dames came back in December with a couple to try in the office. She had an idea that it would be a fun activity for the end of the school year to get students involved in something potentially new and to start thinking about STEM projects and activities. We are going to spend the day exploring some ideas for using Sphero in K-2. We will be set up at learning centers. We will switch tables every 15 minutes.

Slide 24

This is another option for an Overview slide.

Slide 25

As you work at each learning station, please write down things you talk about. Ideas you may be using in your school and general observations for using Sphero with Kindergarten to second grade students.

Slide 26

Debrief on Sphero K-2 and is there anything you’d like to find someone to talk with about something specific at the end of the session?

Slide 27

Slide 28

We are going to focus on four areas of the screen. Once you sign on you will see the link to your bookmarks. You can share this link with others. Annororcan is my sample bookmarks. I created this for screen captures. I have had my account for years. My Library is where you will find links you bookmarked. My Groups is where you will find our RCAN Shared Group and where you can join groups The last section of the screen is for logging out, preferences, and so on.

Slide 29

You will want the Diigo browser. It makes the bookmarking easier.

Slide 30

When you find something you want to save click the D and choose Save to Diigo.

Slide 31

If you are not signed in it will ask you for your credentials.

Slide 32

If you are not signed in it will ask you for your credentials.

Slide 33

When you join, Diigo automatically added a couple of entries. The words in blue are the link. You will notice a little lock. They made these private links that only you will see when you log on. Beneath the blue link is the actual URL for the site. The date on the right shows when it was bookmarked.

Slide 34

When you join, Diigo automatically added a couple of entries. The words in blue are the link. You will notice a little lock. They made these private links that only you will see when you log on.

Slide 36

If you are not signed in it will ask you for your credentials.

Slide 37

When you bookmark you should really add tags to each bookmark. Tags are like an index in a book. You can tag things any way you think works for you. This is called a Folksonomy. The top bookmark does not have tags. The bottom bookmark has two: Diigo and Chrome.

Slide 38

If you are not signed in it will ask you for your credentials.

Slide 39

The left side of the library has an Add button to add new bookmarks. This is the only way to add bookmarks when you first start with Diigo. The tags are from the entries that were automatically added to your account. By clicking a tag it will only show you the bookmarks tagged in this way (or Untagged).

Slide 40

The edit button will allow you to edit your bookmark. Here you can add a description or tag. You can type a description and add any tags you think of. I usually attach multiple words with an underscore. You can type quote marks around multiple words. Then click Save.

Slide 41

Now you have more tags. Next we will add a new bookmark. Let’s bookmark GoNoodle in a new tab. Copy the link to Go Noodle then go back to the Diigo tab and click Add then Bookmark. Paste the URL

Slide 42

What would you type as a description? You can click on some or all of their recommended tags or make up your own. You can skip any of these field, the more you type the easier it is to search for things eventually. What tags did you choose? What is your description? Then click Add New Bookmark.

Slide 43

What would you type as a description? You can click on some or all of their recommended tags or make up your own. You can skip any of these field, the more you type the easier it is to search for things eventually. What tags did you choose? What is your description? Then click Add New Bookmark.

Slide 44

You don’t have to join the group to use it. It does make it easier.

Slide 45

The left side of the library has an Add button to add new bookmarks. This is the only way to add bookmarks when you first start with Diigo. The tags are from the entries that were automatically added to your account. By clicking a tag it will only show you the bookmarks tagged in this way (or Untagged).

Slide 46

What would you type as a description? You can click on some or all of their recommended tags or make up your own. You can skip any of these field, the more you type the easier it is to search for things eventually. What tags did you choose? What is your description? Then click Add New Bookmark.

Slide 47

It is the same as adding a bookmark, but you will use the Share to a Group dropdown.

Slide 48

The left side of the library has an Add button to add new bookmarks. This is the only way to add bookmarks when you first start with Diigo. The tags are from the entries that were automatically added to your account. By clicking a tag it will only show you the bookmarks tagged in this way (or Untagged).

Slide 49

You can add a toolbar. It varies by browser.

Slide 50

You can add a toolbar. It varies by browser.

Slide 51

I get different results. It depends on how my brain was working that day.

Slide 52

Use a section header for each of the topics, so there is a clear transition to the audience.

Slide 53

Are there any new technology tools or project ideas that you are excited about and would like to share?
