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.

Dyslexia I, Online Course

Description:

This online workshop is intended for educators to provide an overview of Dyslexia.

Dyslexia, the most recognized of reading problems, is a neurological disorder that is often characterized by difficulties in recognizing and decoding words, leading to lower comprehension and fluency. Although there is no exact count, it is estimated that one in ten people may be afflicted with some form of dyslexia.

Governor Christie signed legislation that, for the first time, prominently recognizes dyslexia in state statute and regulation, making it a requirement for districts to deal with this disability. A definition of dyslexia must now be specifically written into special education code and a yearly 2-hour professional development requirement for dyslexia is now mandated for all teachers in grades pre-K through grade 3, special education, reading and ESL teachers, reading specialists, learning disabilities teacher consultants, and speech-language specialists.

This 2-hour (time varies per participant) webinar will provide participating administrators, pre-K to 3 educators, Special Education supervisors, and Child Study Team members with detailed information about this legislation, citing the specificity and requisites that impact the governance and operation of all school districts in New Jersey. The impact that the law will have on special education programs, as well as the specific components that must be included in the required training, will be reviewed during the online course.


Audience: Administrators, Pre-K to 3 Educators, Special Education supervisors, and Child Study Team members

In addition, because the prevention of harassment, intimidation and bullying, HIB, has been added to the professional development requirements, this topic will also be discussed in detail during this three hour training.  All participants will have ample opportunity to ask questions.

Flipping the Classroom

Description:

Using a flipped classroom approach takes the whole class instruction to a technology based format, allowing the students to watch, listen, learn, question, communicate, and collaborate from either home, a library or media center, OR from their handheld phone or device.  Then different forms of small group instruction can target student learning needs through hands-on concept mastery, student discourse of content, student collaboration, or teacher conferencing.  Students can work at their own pace through mastery learning, or simply through a collaborative, small group setting. The teacher is then able to effectively differentiate by using the time more efficiently as a facilitator and coach and not as the "sage on the stage."

 

To experiment with the flipped experience, check out the concept by reviewing the infographic at  www.knewton.com/flipped-classroom. Then log your questions and commentary at  www.todaysmeet.com/fliptheclassroom for us to discuss when we meet.

When we flip, we will:
-consider a variety of instructional strategies to support the model
-experiment with the tools that support the model
-address your questions and concerns
-spend time creating your own flipped lesson!

Strategies to Reach Reluctant Learners

Reluctant learners are a common issue for all districts, creating frustration for teachers who wish to see all students engaged in the learning process.  Introducing new ideas to lesson plans does not always address the root causes contributing to the behavior of the reluctant learner.  Based on the work of Eric Toshalis and Michael J. Nakkula, this workshop will allow participants of all content areas to explore the myths surrounding the behaviors of reluctant learners and provide participants with strategies to debunk these myths and develop new connections with reluctant learners.  Participants should bring a unit or lesson plan they wish to improve using these new strategies.

When students are immersed in safe, supportive, engaging and inspiring environments where they feel connected to their school community through relationships with adults and peers, they come to believe people in their schools value them and want them to succeed. Research indicates this belief is an important prerequisite to greater academic achievement, reduced bullying, lower dropout rates, improved grades, fewer discipline referral and fewer high-risk behaviors.
