In 2014, Korea International invested in professional development by sending 10 teachers to NIST (Bangkok) for the Learning 2.0 Conference - Asia.
It's an amazing conference and one that, true it's own billing, is "different".
For the 10 who attended, we set ourselves the challenge of bringing back something very tangible to share with the rest of the KIS teaching community. L2 Remix was born, and on behalf of the EdTech team and with it The Fish Bowl programme - we are proud to host this unique and special event.
L2 Remix Session Descriptions
Visual Literacy - Dave Archer (@)
Brighten your lessons, final products, presentations, and anything else you can think of with techniques used in visual literacy. A remixed version of Heather Dowd’s (@heza) extended session will hopefully inspire you as it has for me to create visually appealing infographics and presentations with your students. The possibilities are cross-curricular and can be used efficiently without a hint of graphic design background. Walk away with student-friendly websites, and new ideas to brighten your classwork. https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/14X1AdeOPgvfvMwncgklCyu_7FBMBWFu1zf8kcYSPWE8/edit#slide=id.g4a7ba2ac6_099
Keeping your Schoology Tests free of academic dishonesty - Brad Evans (@HistoryPeeps)
This session will show you some new strategies for maintaining the integrity of your digital assessments. A new app is available in our Self Service called SafeExamBrowser, which will help you make sure your Schoology tests remain secure. I’ll show you how to use this program, and how to keep your own digital assessments free from academic dishonesty. This session is a summary of topics discussed at an “unconference” group.
10% Time/Genius Hour/Passion Projects - Katie Fleetwood (@krfleetwood)
Inspire your students to be inspired learners. In this session we will look at the idea of providing students the freedom to design their own learning during a set period of time during school. This allows students to explore their own curiosity through a self-determined topic and study while within the support system of a classroom. This remix is based on an extended session I attended by Sam Sherratt called Bubble Up Curriculum
Parenting in a Time of Constant Connection - Steve Katz (@stevekatz)
Explore and discuss some of the most common issues that challenge families regarding technology use in the home. Access some resources that will help to empower parents in dealing with the struggles that come with ubiquitous computing at home. This is a recap of the extended session presented by Adam Clark from Yokohama International School.
Rethinking Schools - Amalia Kingsbury (@TeachRemix)
In this session I will talk about Design Thinking, mind brain education, digital global citizenship and use of technology across all content areas. Learners have changed and so should schools and teaching and learning practices. This is a remix sessions by Charlotte Diller @cdiller and Andrew Churches @achurches edorigami.edublogs.org.For a copy of my presentation follow this link: http://bit.ly/1ujx2x0
Social Entrepreneurship - David Lee (@davidleeedtech)
In this session inspired by Warren Apel's (@warrena) session, you will learn how adding a business component to your lesson or unit will help students learn valuable “real-world” skills. Students can use technology to promote their business and give the profits to disadvantaged people in their community. Help students learn to change the world!
Immersive (Digital) Storytelling - Colleen McCabe (@mscmccabe)
Inspired by Robert Appino’s Immersive Storytelling full day pre-conference workshop, in this session we will be exploring the ways the senses (sight, sound, and touch) can improve learning. We will examine multi-modalities and the ways in which image, text, sound and digital interaction are used in immersive stories. I will show you ways to differentiate your writing for a variety of learners, publish pieces in alternative ways, and integrate creative writing warm-ups into your class. http://goo.gl/WDHfrE
Amazing Apps! - Jen Naughton (@MathleteMissN)
In this session I will introduce you to Zaption, Zondle, VideoScribe, Aurasma, and many more! These apps are all easy to use and will help engage your students! With Zaption add images, text, and questions to any online video, creating interactive lessons that meet your students’ needs. You can also track student response data to instantly measure understanding and differentiate instruction. VideoScribe helps you create your own RSA whiteboard style animations with just a few clicks! This remix highlights key apps used in the extended session by Andrew McCarthy who teaches at United World College of South East Asia. http://goo.gl/cPSLvU
Digital Formative Assessment - Angela Spitzman (@spitzfrenzy)
In this session, we will will explore ways that digital technologies can significantly enhance traditional formative assessment practices and lead to greater differentiation. We will focus on authentic use of digital formative assessment, and not look at them as a substitution or replacement of traditional tools. The hope is that with these tools, formative assessment is transformed and amplified. This is a remix from the extended session by Andrew McCarthy who teaches at United World College of South East Asia. Remix Presentation - http://goo.gl/CLeZ6U
Creating Your Own Classroom Guide: RIP Textbooks - Ben Summerton (@bensummerton)
Inspired by Jeff Utecht, and by my own love of Flipboard, this remix of a ‘Nutshell’ session is focussed on an alternative to the traditional textbook. The traditional textbook is static, quickly outdated, expensive, and analogue. With Flipboard, you can easily create an online magazine (i.e. textbook) filled with context that is sourced and selected by you and your students. Learn how to transform your classroom with Flipboard, your new online and up to date textbook. Twitter: @jutecht
