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 2: Building on What We Already Know

Description:

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.

Legislation on Dyslexia signed in August 2014 prominently recognized Dyslexia in state statute and regulation, mandating a requirement for districts to pro-actively deal with this disability. A definition of Dyslexia is now 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.

Participants should already have had a preliminary workshop on Dyslexia such that they have a general knowledge about the legislation, definition, warning signs, and characteristics of Dyslexia. This 2-hour training will provide participants with information about specific teaching strategies and techniques used to work with students with Dyslexia, as well as additional information about its characteristics, use of technology, and screening.

Audience: All K-12 Educators

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.

Using HyperDocs in the Classroom

Description:

In this workshop participants will create inquiry based lessons which enable students to learn through exploration. A HyperDoc is a term used to describe a G Suite document that contains a lesson for students. It can have instructions, images, and hyperlinks, but it is much more than some links in a document. HyperDocs do more than just repackage lessons, they can inspire curiosity, collaboration, critical thinking and problem solving. The inclusion of add-ons and web tools give students a voice and a chance to join forces with classmates. HyperDocs encourage students to develop critical thinking and problem solving skills through linked tasks that ask for authentic products to be created and shared digitally. Let us ease you into the HyperDoc creation process by bringing your lesson plans with you, and you will leave with a HyperDoc lesson that promotes deeper engagement.

Please create a G Suite account before attending this session.

Description: The Raspberry Pi is a low cost, credit-card sized computer that plugs into a computer monitor or TV, and uses a standard keyboard and mouse. It is a capable little device that enables people of all ages to explore computing, and to learn how to program in languages such as Scratch and Python. Raspbian is a free operating system based on Debian optimized for the Raspberry Pi hardware. Participants will explore the steps to install Raspbian on the Raspberry Pi and review all the hardware settings.

The Coding Teacher Series: Introduction to Python

Description: Python is a programming language used for many different applications. It is used in some high schools and colleges as an introductory programming language since it is relatively easy to learn. This programming language is also used by professional software developers at places such as Google, NASA, and Lucasfilm Ltd. This workshop will access Python installed on a Raspberry Pi. We will explore Python’s syntax and functions for both web development and controlling the Raspberry Pi hardware. Additionally, we will explore the use of MicroPython as well as Python 3.

The Coding Teacher Series: Intro to Arduino- Using Arduino IDE

Description: Arduino consists of both a physical programmable circuit board- often referred to as a microcontroller- and a piece of software, or IDE (Integrated Development Environment) that runs on your computer, and it is used to write and upload computer code to the physical board. This workshop will explain how to control hardware and sensors by using the IDE to program the arduino. The Arduino language is a set of C/C++ functions that can be called from your code. We will review the process of writing sketches and loading the code into the Arduino.

Audience: All Educators
