ISTE Certification Day #1

CERT01

Doreen Pietrantoni - Monroe One BOCES

ISTE Certification provides education leaders with a way to identify a school or district’s educators who are leading the way with digital age teaching practices. Through the ISTE Certification process, educators will participate in a blended learning cohort based on the ISTE Standards and transformative pedagogy starting with 2 immersive days of learning at the NYSCATE conference. After completing the blended learning course, participants will have six months to apply their learning and compile artifacts and reflections into a competency-based portfolio to earn ISTE Certification. Content will be taught in the following four modules: Designing For Diversity; Personalized Learning & Alternative Assessments; Digital Learning Environments: Design Thinking & Computational Thinking; and The New Digital Citizenship.

BrainPOP Gets Everyone Coding!

SUNAM06

Shalon Thomas - BrainPOP Educator

Privya Mathur - BrainPOP Educator

BrainPOP gets everyone coding! Developed with Scratch and Vidcode, Creative Coding pairs block- and text-based projects with BrainPOP's cross-curricular content.  After a brief introduction to coding in the classroom and a short demo, attendees will dive right into BrainPOP's Creative Coding experience. They'll code memes, games, newscasts, comics, and more while learning about the breadth of benefits coding and its associated skills offer. Scaffolded and delivered at the topic level, we'll discuss how these projects make it easy to introduce coding - no matter what educators are covering in class and regardless of prior experience.  #BYOD
