Playground: Shrink Art: Curriculum Connections on a Tiny Scale
Come join us in the conference playground and experience hands-on activities using STEM-inspired technology, among other things. The Playground is not a typical session you attend, but rather a time for you to investigate, explore, and play firsthand with different "toys".  Visit with the technology trainers from Utah’s Regional Service Centers, UEN, UofU, and the STEM Action Center.  Come and go as you'd like, or spend an hour (or two) in the Playground!

Playground Description: Explore the possible connections that can be made between the arts and concepts from core curricula through shrink film projects.

Hyperdocs

A HyperDoc is a digital document using as a Google Doc/Google slides. Where the components of the learning cycle have been pulled together into one central location. Within a single document, students are provided with hyperlinks to all of the resources they need to complete that learning cycle at their pace of learning. More student direct learning less teacher lecture learning.

What Do You Do When They Already Know It?

This high-energy presentation provides teachers and school leaders with a variety of simple-yet-innovative teaching strategies that will enhance the learning within any classroom. Topics to be addressed include differentiated methods for increasing content-specific vocabulary, how to build rapport with students and parents through writing, and engaging ways for students to summarize their learning. Each strategy presented will be modeled, and participants will leave with a clear understanding of what the strategy is as well as how to implement it. Additionally, many of the techniques shared will center on the role that movement plays in learning, the value that comes from self-assessment, and the increasing importance that personalized learning plays in today's classrooms. Regardless of the technique, each of the methods described can be easily adapted to fit within any curriculum, regardless of grade or subject matter.

13.1 Ways Teaching is Like Running a Half Marathon

Whenever I tell people that I run half marathons or I mention to them that I'm a middle school teacher, their answers are usually the same -

Ugh. Why would you want to do that?

And that response is the premise of 13.1 Ways That Teaching Middle School is Like Running a Half Marathon. This high-energy session is about all the challenges that we teachers face on a daily basis. Like our classes, some of the topics addressed are very serious (the importance of planning, not wasting time, persevering through difficult times), while others are a bit more light-hearted (learning to eat in 15 minutes, wanting to change careers mid-lesson, ultimate bladder control). Regardless of if you're a runner or not, these are all topics that teachers will understand all-to-well.

After providing an overview of each challenge, three ""next-day"" strategies will be provided to help teachers become better at their craft. That means you'll leave with close to 40 strategies that will easily fit into any content area or grade level!

Don't miss out!
