Saturday Spotlight  Presentation  

Melinda Kolk,  Tech  for  Learning   The  21st  Century  Classroom:  Where  the  3  R’s  Meet  the  4  C’s!   Our  world  is  changing  and  changing  rapidly.      A  21st  century  classroom  must  engage  and   energize  both  natives  and  non-­‐natives,  preparing  all  students  to  be  active  participants  in  our   exciting  global  community.  Many  people  react  to  global  competition  with  fear  and  cry  out  for  a   renewed  focus  on  the  3  R’s  -­‐  reading,  writing,  and  arithmetic.  But  in  order  to  fully  participate  in   today’s  global  community,  students  must  also  master  the  4  C’s  –  creativity,  critical  thinking,   communication,  and  collaboration.     Melinda Kolk is the Director of Professional Development at Tech4Learning, Inc., which publishes open-ended software tools and learning resources that support project-based learning. Melinda is the editor of Creative Educator magazine and the author of Teaching with Clay Animation. She has been helping educators implement project-based learning in their classrooms for over ten years, developing the ProjectLearn model and authoring the ProjectLearn project-building and project design materials at Recipes4Success.com. Melinda has made hundreds of presentations at educational technology conferences around the United States, including ASCD, NSBA T+L, NECC, ILTCE, and more. She has been a featured speaker at the MACUL, VSTE, and MICCA conferences and was the keynote speaker at the 2004 VSTE Conference in Roanoke, Virginia. Melinda has also had articles on student technology projects published in Virginia's "VSTE Journal" and Australia's "The Educational Technology Guide." *See the Spotlight Presentation Saturday at either 8:10 a.m. or 10:10 a.m. in room B112.

The 21st Century Classroom: Where the 3 R’s Meet the 4 C’s! Melinda Kolk, Tech4Learning

Our world is changing and changing rapidly. A 21st century classroom must engage and energize both natives and non-natives, preparing all students to be active participants in our exciting global community. Many people react to global competition with fear and cry out for a renewed focus on the 3 R’s - reading, writing, and arithmetic.

Lastly, I will have some items available to take with you so you can recreate the centers for your own classroom needs. My centers incorporate writing, reading, cooperative learning, science, math, geography and 21st Century Learning skills. Technology centers can be adapted to any grade level and any content area.

What is a virus, worm or malware? Why would someone infect my computer? What can I do to protect my information? Every year, millions of systems are compromised through the single action of a person, even though the workstation had the latest software protection. These everyday actions not only expose personal information but can also expose an organization’s information to unauthorized access. In addition, these compromised systems are then used as launching pads to infect other computers and can diminish the ability to access network resources. In this presentation, we will discuss who is trying to infect your computer and why; the various types of threats to your computer; how these threats are being delivered; the tools used to defend against these threats; the underground digital economy; and finally a discussion on what is the best solution.

What Level Are Your Teachers? Differentiating Flipchart Curriculum – What’s Good vs. What’s Not-So-Good Karen Adams & Scott Caulfield, Promethean

BYOL

Can you tell the difference between a teacher utilizing all their classroom technology to teach their students and one who isn’t? We will take flipchart curriculum and look at several sample lessons – some that present a higher level of interaction and engagement, and some that at the lower end of interaction and engagement. This will help you gauge at what level of interaction and engagement your teachers are functioning with their flipchart curriculum. Arm yourself with ideas on how to maximize student learning and engagement through flipchart curriculum in your classrooms.
