Beware of Geeks Bearing Gifts (Online Workshop)

Description:

When you and I were growing up, the words Trojans, worms, viruses and spam had considerably different meanings than they do today. We took a pole and went out fishing, but today we encounter phishing expeditions and electronic bait trying to hook us. We are victimized by spyware, adware, and malware of all types. These electronic parasites can be sucking your personal data and affecting the performance of your computer. This workshop will give you a better understanding of these dangers and introduce strategies on how you can deal with them.

Connecting Phonics First® to the Common Core (Online Version)

Description:

Connecting Phonics First® to the Common Core                           
Target Group: All teachers trained in the Phonics First® Foundations program.
Prerequisite:  Completion of Phonics First® Beginnings, Basic or Foundations Level I.

During the Connecting Phonics First® to the Common Core workshop, teachers look at the decoding and fluency-related standards of the common core and determine the Phonics First® instructional components that ensure success for beginning, struggling, at-risk, ELL and LD students.

DESCRIPTION:
The adoption of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) means schools must immediately and rapidly gear-up struggling readers. The demands of the CCSS' higher-level comprehension skills require students employ accurate decoding and fluent reading in order to be able to comprehend increasingly complex text. Consistent implementation of specific Phonics First® strategies in the classroom and intervention settings allows teachers to accurately target specific skill-deficits and to support and strengthen student decoding and fluency.

During the Connecting Phonics First® to the Common Core workshop, teachers look at the decoding and fluency-related standards of the common core and determine the Phonics First® instructional components that ensure success for beginning, struggling, at-risk, ELL and LD students. Teachers will then review and practice strategy implementation for classroom and small-group instruction at the prevention, intervention and remediation levels. Workshop will also include an introduction to Reciprocal  Teaching, a powerful tool for deepening comprehension through a process of clarifying, questioning, summarizing and predicting.

Unpacking the Anchor Mathematics Standards for Teachers and Students, Grades 3-8

Description:

This is an exciting time to teach mathematics, with the recent evolution of mathematics education, forthcoming curricular changes, and technological innovations. Powerful mathematics instruction starts with high standards and classroom materials that meet those standards. The richest math learning environments have other important characteristics as well and in this workshop participants will learn “what counts” in mathematics instruction aimed at producing mathematical thinkers and problem solvers.

Learning Objectives/Content:
The Standards for Mathematical Practice are the heart and soul of the Common Core Standards for Mathematics. It is through these eight practices that students explore mathematics, build deeper understanding, develop reasoning, and learn to apply content knowledge to problem situations. It is through these standards that they learn how to be mathematicians.

During this workshop, participants will gather instructional strategies that teach critical problem-solving skills, identify classroom tasks that support students’ abstract thinking, reflect on activities and questioning techniques that help students discover the structure of Math including its patterns and properties, and gather strategies for helping students select and use appropriate Math tools.

Participants will receive a comprehensive packet of classroom-proven activities that can be used with students and will have time to explore excellent internet resources.

Group Policy Intensive "All Levels" 2-Day Workshop with Group Policy MVP Jeremy Moskowitz (full)

Description:

Please, be aware that if your district is paying with ETTC Hours, these hours will be charged against the new allocation of ETTC Hours for the 2014-2015 School Year.

In this course, you won’t be disappointed. Come hear Jeremy Moskowitz, Group Policy MVP and founder of Gpanswers.com and learn the ropes of Group Policy -- for beginners, intermediates and more advanced users. This is an “all levels” course with something for everyone.

 

Two days isn’t enough to cover 100% of what you can do with Group Policy. Heck, Jeremy normally teaches a whopping hands-on intensive week-long course! But Jeremy promises to jam in 80 pounds of stuff into a 60 pound bag.

 

“If you want to learn everything about Group Policy, then you need to attend Jeremy's training class, I came in as a novice and left an expert. Jeremy speaks to you, not above you. “

—John Shorey, Desktop Computing Specialist, Princeton University

 

 

Prerequisites: You should be familiar with general Active Directory concepts, including Active Directory Users and Computers, the GPMC (a little helps), and the concepts of sites, domains, Ous, users, computers, and groups.

 

Please: No audio or video recording allowed during these sessions.

Note: Subject matter may change somewhat depending on timing constraints.

 

Schedule to be as follows:

 

DAY 1

8.30 AM - 10.00

    • Group Policy Essentials: What every newbie (and black belt) needs to know.
      • GPOs vs. Policy Settings
      • RSOP
      • RSAT
      • GPMC History
      • Which GPMC to use
      • Why you need a Windows 7 management machine
      • Creating, Linking, Editing GPOs
      • Enabling, Disabling, Unlinking and Deleting
      • Why Block Inheritance is a good thing
      • How to Enforce your will upon your Ous
      • Security Filtering: How to & Good or Bad Idea?

 

“After hearing Jeremy speak today, I immediately was able to see that there are some things we can do  in much more efficient ways. I immediately was able to come up with a solution for something we have wanted to do but have been unable to do. I immediately was able to figure out that there are some things we can do that we didn't even realize we might want to do.”

-- Sam Lair, System Technician, Sr. (Office of the CIO), State of Idaho

 

10.15 - 12.00

    • Group Policy Internals
      • Why you want to make your Windows 7 and 8 act like Windows 2000 (yes, Windows 2000)
      • Group Policy Backup and Restore
        • Up the creek? Here’s your paddle.
      • ADM, ADMX and the Central Store
        • Why did Microsoft create ADMX files?
        • How can we prevent “SYSVOL bloat?”
      • Troubleshooting 101 - 201
        • RSOP 101: What do to before you run out to the desktop
        • RSOP 102: The tools you need to be successful when you run out
        • Troubleshooting flowchart: All the stuff to do before you freak out

 

“After taking Jeremy's class, I was able to create and troubleshoot Group Policy in our environment. Others tried to convince me that the "Microsoft Standard" is to have one huge policy, but troubleshooting that policy for them was a nightmare. After they saw how easy it was to create smaller, less complicated policies, troubleshooting became a piece of cake.”

—David Nietrzeba, Server Administrator, University of Toledo

 

12.00 - 1.00 – Lunch

 

1.00 – 2.30 - What’s new in Group Policy for Windows 7 and Windows 8

“Jeremy has a way of explaining things that are down to earth. He takes a potentially dry subject and makes it more fun. These Group Policy courses are invaluable to help me in my job. As we transition to new machines and new operating systems, I can use the information and tools learned in class immediately. The pre-built virtual lab machines made it so I could focus on the labs right away. The hands-on labs are awesome! I am really glad I signed up for Jeremy’s  online courses--even though I ended up taking them on my own after work. It was a really good investment.”

—Deborah Adam, ATK Launch Systems

“After hearing Jeremy speak, I realized that I have a great deal of work to do. I came in knowing little about GP, except for the fact that it is a powerful tool. As a manager, I accompanied my co-worker to this training so that I would get enough info to speak intelligently to him to express my wishes for my network. I believe that with your training and new books, my network engineer and I can confidently move forward.”

--Philip Taylor, CIO, Christian School District, State of Kentucky

"Even after working with GPO's for several years now, the training was of great value to me. I did not regret [flying in from Europe] and joining the training for one second. On the one hand I got t he confirmation that I was on the right track developing our current set of GPO's and on the other hand I learned a lot of new useful things. I can't wait to start with the preparations."

-- Frank Verheyen, Henkel International

    • How to get feedback that it worked !

“Jeremy, I just wanted to say thanks again for the information presented I n your training this week. I was able to learn a number of tips & tricks concerning GP that will be applicable in our environment. We have two departments that can surely use their own OU and be managed with GP. I've been wanting to do this for awhile and now that I've been pointed in the right direction, I can finally make it happen. You're awesome, dude. “
