Making Math Contextual, Visual, and Interconnected with Technology
When you ask North Americans whether they understand math, the response more often than not is negative. Ask whether they find math enjoyable and that number is almost certain to decrease. This is a rather deflating fact for those of us entrusted to teach mathematics to students with very similar views at best. Although it might seem as though the deck is stacked against us, we now live in an age where technology makes it possible to teach math with context and visualization. Come experience how to leverage technology to engage and inspire students to not only enjoy mathematics, but understand the beauty of this universal language we share in our classrooms each and every day.

Student-Led Conferences and 20% Time Projects for Elementary Classrooms -- ROOM 215
For the past few years, I have invited my fourth grade students every fall to join me and their parents in a half-hour conference in which we discuss their strengths and areas for growth, set a goal for the year, and plan next steps for everyone involved. I quickly realized that while involving students in these kinds of conversations was a step in the right direction, it would not alone ensure that students made sufficient progress in building on their strengths, improving their areas for growth, and accomplishing their goals. I developed structures to support them at home and in school -- including follow-up conferences throughout the year and class time for goal-related work and presentations as well as shared note taking and audio recordings. I use similar structures to assess and discuss students' reading and writing. They provide individualized parent education and help students direct their own learning and experience success, while developing a growth mindset. Please join me for an extended conversation in which I discuss my system for student-directed conferences and goal monitoring and share resources.

The Common Core demands that students become proficient users of technology. Google Forms are a great way to get even our youngest students familiar with essential technology basics, including drop down menus, radio buttons, text boxes, check boxes, scroll bars and many more! In this session, we will learn how to create forms, and explore multiple examples of how Forms can be used by Primary students and teachers. I will also show some ways that images and videos can be used to enhance Google Forms.

Parent Education and Engagement for Elementary Classrooms -- ROOM 215
Teaching at a school that was founded in part to foster parent participation, I spent countless hours reflecting on how I utilized parents' time, energy, and interest to maximize their impact on student learning inside and outside of the classroom. I strongly feel that only asking parent volunteers to make copies and check homework folders is a missed opportunity, so I have looked for ways to integrate them in my classroom community and have them support instruction in a more direct way. I host regular parent education opportunities, including how to assess reading and writing, facilitate small-group conversations, and build relationships with students in addition to having an education book club for adults four times a year. I also provide a series of ways parents can contribute, while they are outside of the classroom, including responding to homework and writing students letters throughout the year. Please join me for an extended conversation in which I discuss my system for sharing my classroom and expertise with parents in order to increase their impact and share resources.

Although it might seem as though the deck is stacked against us, we now live in an age where technology makes it possible to teach math with context and visualization.

Project-Based Learning for District Schools -- ROOM 215
Before teaching at a charter school devoted to project-based learning, I spent three years creating and implementing projects with my second and third grade students in a district school. During that time, students published a book on Amazon, produced an activity book to distribute at local businesses, and played an active role in their local school board election -- meeting candidates, registering voters, and knocking on doors. In each project, I followed a similar process: posing an essential question, providing scaffolds for difficult texts, facilitating interviews and field work opportunities, teaching any necessary skills, leading critique sessions, and helping students prepare their work for public consumption. The results were experiences that fostered deeper learning and engaged students, while allowing them to exceed grade-level standards. Please join me for an extended conversation in which I discuss my system for planning and executing projects in a context with relatively more constraints and share resources.

Classroom Technology and Structures for New Teachers -- ROOM 215
In this workshop, I provide a brief overview of several forms of classroom technology or other useful structures that can be used again and again to maximize student learning and parent involvement. I pull materials from several of my other presentations to highlight everything from class meetings and critique to digital portfolios and Google Drive. I ask participants to take a one-question survey via Google Forms to determine their priorities and spend the remainder of the time discussing the three most popular items and showing participants how to use them. Please join me for a hands-on tutorial on systems that have the power to change your practice tomorrow.
