TurnIT Up Conference at EduTech BOCES



May 31, 2018


Let's Explore in VR! Intro to Google Expeditions and Google Cardboard
8:45am-10:15am
Learn how the Oakfield-Alabama School District "dipped their toes" into virtual reality using free VR apps such as Google Expeditions and Google Cardboard. Students can now partake in immersive experiences using low cost viewers combined with mobile devices that are either student or school owned. Kits will be provided in this session, literally giving you "hands-on" exposure to see how VR can fit into your school!


The Art of Screencasting--Keys to Flipped Learning
10:30am-12:00pm
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!
12:50pm-2:00pm
Learn how the Oakfield-Alabama School District used NY State 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 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!
