NYSCATE 2017 Workshops by Rob Zdrojewski




Join me in Rochester, NY for the 2017 NYSCATE Educational Technology Conference this fall!  My two workshop presentations will focus on the latest trends with Screencasting and the Flipped Classroom, and also learn more about life after SmartBoards with the ever evolving technologies behind Interactive Flat Panel displays.  View complete details below.


The Art of Screencasting--Keys to Flipped Learning (SATPM5)

Saturday, November 18, 2017  11:45am - 1:45pm, Rochester Radisson Hotel
The concept of the flipped classroom wouldn’t be possible without screencasting. Learn how to create “A Digital YOU” by creating screencasts on Chromebooks, Windows or Mac using popular free Chrome extensions such as Screencastify, Loom, Nimbus Screenshot and more. When combined with your favorite digital learning platform, teachers now have the ability to create a 24/7 personalized learning environment, perfect for keeping absent students up to date and fostering a more connected classroom! We will also explore the growing trend of obtaining your Level 1 Certification as a Flipped Learning Educator.



Life After SmartBoards- Why Interactive Flat Panels are the next big thing! (SUNPM13)

Sunday, November 19, 2017  12:45pm - 2:45pm, Rochester Radisson Hotel
Learn how one NY State District decided to utilize Smart School Funds to replace their aging fleet of SmartBoards and Windows desktops with Interactive Flat Panel displays and Chromeboxes in every classroom. More than just a “giant iPad”, these panels offer many advantages in cost, display quality and durability. As we push the capabilities of Chromebooks and look to the future of cloud-based computing, the demand to create, store and present our content from anyplace, anytime continues to grow. In this workshop we will explore the evolving benefits of “online presentation tools” that allow teachers and students to create and present their information, without being limited to proprietary Windows software such as Smart Notebook. We will explore the many options that are available. And since they’re all web-based, you are no longer restricted to using a legacy Windows platform. Join us as we embrace the freedom that anytime, anyplace web-based tools can give us!

Session 1- The Art of Screencasting for the Flipped Classroom
Location: Erie 1 BOCES, West Seneca, NY Room B2A

Session 2- Using GoGuardian for Teachers to Live Monitor Student Chromebooks

Using GoGuardian, teachers can view continuous live images of each Chromebook, remotely open and close tabs, record the history of sites used during class and even blank out screens when attention is needed. We will provide loaner Chromebooks and explore many of the great features of GoGuardian for Teachers in this session.

Creating greenscreen video used to be expensive and highly technical, but not anymore! Thanks to the Green Screen Do Ink iPad app, anyone can easily record broadcast quality greenscreen footage for their video projects. Imagine having students appear to be on location for their video book reports or presentations. This app allows you to choose any video clip or photo from your camera roll and use it as the backdrop behind you. Export clips to the camera roll, iMovie or other iPad video production apps. Join us as we demonstrate sample workflows and explore your options for greenscreens, lighting, microphones, and more. The possibilities are endless!
