Session 3: 12:40-1:40
iPad Screencasting: The Essential Piece to Flipping Your Classroom!
Rob Zdrojewski, Canisius College and Oakfield-Alabama CSD
Screencasts have the power to personalize the online environment when students actually see and hear their instructors asynchronously. Learn how to use both basic and advanced level iOS screencasting apps such as Explain Everything, Educreations and more to create basic screencast videos on your iPad. Specific examples and demonstrations will be provided from a “flipped” middle school teacher and adjunct professor who rarely delivers lectures standing in front of students, and instead circulates among them while they take ownership of their learning.
Audience: Teachers, Administrators, and PD.

Session 4: 1:50-2:50
Using Socrative and Kahoot to Engage/Gamify/Quiz Your Students!
Rob Zdrojewski, Canisius College and Oakfield-Alabama CSD
Game-based student response systems (a.k.a. “clickers”) are increasingly becoming a popular technology tool to engage students in classroom activities.  However their high cost and steep learning curve prevent many classrooms from utilizing this exciting technology.  Learn how online tools like Socrative and Kahoot aim to change all of this!  Socrative and Kahoot are free web-based student response systems that run on ANY device with a web browser.  See how you can use tablets, smartphones, Chromebooks or laptops as “clickers” instead of investing in the more traditional one-purpose only hardware devices on the market.  Please BYOD (bring your own device) and join us for some fun demonstrations of Socrative and Kahoot!
