WELCOME & KEYNOTE
Welcome to the 2018 ASSET Technology Conference.  

This is ASSET's 20th Anniversary Conference on Long Island serving the educational technology needs of schools. 

Keynote Address from Eric Sheninger, ICLE
Learning Transformed: 8 Keys to Designing Tomorrow’s Schools, Today

 The current speed of technological breakthroughs has led to the coming age of workplace automation, dramatically altering the world of work that our students will enter. With all that is known about how students learn and the predictions regarding the world that our students will face tomorrow, a one‑size‑fits‑all approach to teaching and learning is educational malpractice. Built on the foundation of leadership and school culture, a redesigned learning experience fundamentally shifts the teaching and learning paradigm to one that's personal. It alters the use of authentic assessments, how technology is leveraged, the spaces in which the learning occurs, the way educators grow professionally, how schools collaborate with the community, and the sustainability of the system as a whole. Eric will dissect this approach to unlocking tomorrow's schools so that today's modern learners leave ready to create new industries, find new cures, and solve world problems.

i-Tech, i-Empower, i-Innovate
How can you unleash the power of technology in your elementary school? Learn how to go beyond textbooks and explore learning from teachers and administrators in the Plainview Old Bethpage School district. They will take you on a journey that focuses on the integration of technology and the 4C’s, and demonstrates the direct impact on student learning and achievement. Digital Learning Spaces- How do we use Google Classroom, SOLE, flipped classrooms and Independent Investigative Methods to motivate students to take ownership over their work, collaborate with others and seek and give feedback? Learn how we use these, amongst other web based apps including Show Me, Google Expedition, Screencastify and Doceri, to provide students with the freedom to produce, present and share their work. The Art of Design- How does STEAM support 21st Century Skills, ISTE standards and budding engineers? Learn how POB implements methodologies to engage learners, instill a growth mindset, and create lifelong critical thinkers as they practice the iterative model of design using robotics and coding (Ozobots, Spheros, etc.), makerspaces, and the Engineering Design Process.

Ignite the Citizen Scientist in Your Students
Children are naturally curious about nature and what’s going on around them. Research indicates that children, who have more nature experiences, demonstrate more advanced cognitive and emotional development. Yet, sadly more and more children are suffering from Nature Deficit Disorder, where although they may go outside for play or sports, children lack a connection to nature and the outside world around them. We know teachers want to give students more opportunities to practice their observations skills and have more real world experiences with science. How can we build awareness of the world around our students and practice science in a real, tangible way with meaning? By giving our students a role in Citizen Science. Our presentation will discuss the value of bringing Citizen Science into the classroom. We will introduce concept of Citizen Science, describe many Citizen Science programs offered to all age groups and discuss our Glen Cove STREAM Program’s K-5 involvement in eBirds, Project Budburst, and CoCoRah’s. Our presentation will include unit and lesson ideas with these programs, as well as demonstrations of the apps used and how students can submit their observations. Participants will see how these submissions actually help real scientists with their research. Our presentation will show how Citizen Science blends the use of technology with the study of the great outdoors to benefit scientists everywhere. Citizen Science offers students a chance to not just learn about science, but to feel like a scientist using data to discover changes in the world around them. We hope you will give us this opportunity to share Citizen Science at the Suffolk ASSET Technology conference.

3D Printing and Taking the Lead!
How 3d Printing can Empower Your School! This poster presentation will show you new ideas on how to utilize a 3D printer to better your school! Empower students to reach out to all departments to find out what kind of objects teachers can use to enhance learning. For example in science can a department use models of cell structures or organs for demonstrations? Do they need equipment like test tube racks or other tools? Can the History or English department utilize replicas of artifacts from different time periods? Can the math department utilize mathematical puzzles such as tessellation to better explain what they are? By having students reach out to teachers they will see how the objects they create can be very useful in enhancing their very own learning experiences. It really puts the force behind the concept that 3D printers are causing the 2nd industrial Revolution. This is a fresh approach to utilizing 3D printers to empower the teacher, student and their school!

Creating New Tools To Meet IEP Data Collection Needs
As a veteran Special Education teacher working in multiple settings (self-contained, resource rm, Integrated co-teaching) I struggled to find a data collection solution that was intuitive, helped me stay in compliance with my data schedules, and produced reports I could share with my parents at CSE meetings. After finding that no such product existed, I decided to develop it myself. With no coding experience, I conceptualized and developed Datability, The data collection, analysis, and reporting tool for the iPad. This presentation will detail the steps I took to create the app as well as go over the app's functions and features.

Maker Spaces - Paper Roller Coasters and Rokenbok
If you ask fifty different people what a maker space is - there is a good chance that you will receive fifty different answers. I have been fortunate to use two innovative platforms in my Fourth, Fifth and Sixth Grade Gifted and Talented Classes, Rokenbok and Paper Roller Coasters. Rokenbok is a very strong construction platform that allows children to construct "worlds" that will allow student-controlled robots to manipulate balls of different sizes to their destinations. The children use monorails, forklifts, loaders and dump trucks to accomplish realistic tasks. Paper Roller Coasters is a challenging STEAM activity using beams, columns, funnels, curves and half pipes in order to build a working roller coaster with a designated time limit. In addition to the STEAM benefits, the children use cooperative team-building skills and learn about delayed gratification using these innovative materials.

ScratchMIT Google Logo Challenge
The Google Logo Challenge is a project for students using Scratch Mit coding language. Scratch was created to help young people learn to think creatively, reason systematically and work collaboratively. It is used by students, teachers and parents to create interactive stories, animations and games and provides a stepping stone to the world of computer programming. The Google Logo Challenge is a project made in Scratch that allows students to animate their own Google logo. Many elementary students are fascinated with the small animations Google uses on their website. Now students have a chance to animate their own logo and could even have their animation presented on Google’s website during Computer Science Week in December.

To Kahoot or Not to Kahoot, That is the Question!
Technology can be used to engage students but also to make activities more functional/practical to meet the needs of the teacher as well. Different websites/resources will be demonstrated to show how creative activities serve a useful purpose such as word clouds not only look visually appealing but they help the students to remember the material better; spelling words, vocabulary for any area, adjectives, etc. and qr codes can be used to foster collaboration and critical thinking. Kahoots are wonderful tools to engage the students but also direct instruction; they can be easily created by the teacher for any subject matter. If there isn’t any technology in the classroom, the teacher can use plickers as a different way to engage the students and only the teacher needs to have any technology. Many of these resources have activities already made for you to try out before you create your own.
The presentation will include a powerpoint that will include the resources discussed as well as the examples and demonstrations of how to use these resources.

Join me as I share the lessons I’ve learned in this whirlwind of a journey. We’ll talk about how to choose and evaluate tech that’s actually useful, how to get hesitant teachers on board, how to learn to use all this new stuff, and more. I’ll also take the opportunity to #humblebrag about some of my favorite examples of instructional technology put to great use and share all the neat ways an Instructional Technology Coach can be useful to students, teachers, and administrators!

Optimize Instruction Utilizing the Data Wise Process & Enhanced Technology
The Wyandanch Team and their Success Partners will walk attendees through a technology enhanced Data Wise process that streamlines effective instructional decisions to increase the success of students and teachers. Beginning last spring, Wyandanch leadership began a process of learning, planning and transformation of their data review process. Their goal was to improve their ability to identify specific learning gaps for individual students across the entire district utilizing common language and process. Through this means they hoped to empower their teachers to close those learning gaps in ways that could be repeated when successful or replaced when less than successful. Evaluation of the intervention efficacy would rest within PLCs – (Professional Learning Communities) - small groups of teachers and administrator in each building. Strategies from previous efforts (before Data Wise) could easily continue, while new approaches and resources could be utilized. Among those resources are regional assessments built during the WSBOCES Teaching is the Core grant a few years ago. In addition, they sought technology to help organize and streamline their analysis. The entire process has afforded them the ability to make more effective and efficient instructional decisions. Come learn about their process and come away with strategies, resources and tools to begin the process in your district!

Reinventing Enrichment and Homework with Student Choice
I Wonder… -how learning would look different if it was based on student choice. -how student engagement would change with enrichment courses. -how changing “homework” could change student learning. Reimagine teaching and learning…As we prepare students for the future, our focus shifts to recognizing how technology will be an integral part of their education and lives. With a plethora of information at their fingertips, students are able to explore interests beyond what is being taught in the classroom. Whatever it is they wonder about, they can learn about. In this session, participants will learn how Jackson Avenue School is using the KidOYO platform, to engage students in choice learning and homework through a variety of “courses” that have been created. Each course contains a group of lessons that guide students through learning on a particular topic. Their learning involves watching videos, reading articles, analyzing diagrams, along with a variety of other technology based activities. Students are asked to synthesize their learning in order to complete a “challenge” as the culmination of each course. As they earn badges for completing these challenges, students build their digital portfolios. In this presentation, participants will be guided through examples of a course and have the opportunity to create their own challenges.

To Lead Is To Fly: Using Drones to Create 21st Century Thinkers and Leaders
Presenters will show how they successfully have used drones in the classroom to develop collaborative leadership skills in their students. Using mathematics and technology classes, as well as the engineering design process learned in science class, lessons on programming, coding, algebra, geometry, and science have given students empowerment in their learning while becoming confident problem solvers. The use of drones helps to foster collaboration, creativity, communication, focus and experimentation which are all necessary skills for today's learners and future leaders of the 21st century workforce. Attendees will be given ideas of how to incorporate drones into their lessons as well as information on where to purchase drones for their own schools.
