ClEvR Lab Reports using Adobe Spark Video
Labs are extremely important in any science class. Students should be able to share what they have learned in that experiment, but that doesn't mean that students must always write a full formal lab report. In this session, you will learn a creative way for students to demonstrate what they have learned from the lab by creating a quick and easy video featuring a ClEvR argument (Claims, Evidence, and Reasoning). Students will be practicing their Common Core speaking and listening skills, the four Cs, and communicating their learning in modalities other than just writing.

Developing Better Scientists by Asking Better Questions
All scientific discoveries, accidental or not, start out from simple questions about the observable universe. These questions seek answers to explain behavior or phenomena and allow students to think deeply about designing their own solutions and experiments to explain such phenomena. See how strategies like QFT and technologies like Verso or Google Sheets can promote the kind of inquiry we want our science students doing while addressing Science and Engineering Practices in NGSS.

Interactive Notebooks for Meta-cognition & Growth
Sometimes the best tool for the job is old fashioned pen and paper. Learn how to incorporate interactive notebooks into your courses regardless of whether it is a high tech or low tech classroom. Learn how interactive notebooks can help kids deepen their learning and the conversations they have about their projects and research. These notebooks promote a growth mindset and improve speaking and written communication as well as help with claims and evidence over time. We will also discuss management/grading -- there is no need for the teacher to ever take home stacks of notebooks over the weekend.

Data Collect, Analysis, & Interpretation
Students have such a hard time analyzing and interpreting data in the form of tables or graphs. In this session, you will create an interactive activity that will help your students choose the best data and graph type to solve CCSS and NGSS problems. Then, you will learn how to use Google Forms and Sheets for your students to collect data and make their own tables and graphs. This session is for people at all skill levels. Please bring a laptop and make sure you have a Google Account (either a Gmail address or a Google Apps for Education account).

Improve Scientific Literacy with Games and Storytelling
Science speaks its own language. See how easy-to-build activities in Desmos and Google Drawings can improve the the use of scientific vocabulary by allowing students to use these terms in the proper context. Quickly asses student's command of the vocabulary through the Desmos Dashboard and Google Classroom.

Project Based Learning in an NGSS Classroom
NGSS allows science teachers to dive deeper into their curriculum. This session will focus on bringing project-based learning and assessments into your curriculum. Discover how to get your students to animate chemical formulas, make children's books to share photosynthesis, and challenge your students to "Keep My Coffee Hot". All of these projects will bring out your student's creativity and build a foundation of engagement and success. Come and learn how to get students to race to your class to learn.

Using Online Simulations for Deeper Understanding
With NGSS, students no longer need to regurgitate factoids but instead must be able to explain the how and why of scientific phenomena. Consequently, hands-on experience is invaluable in the science classroom. However, how do we help our students "see" and experience what is going on at microscopic and atomic levels? In this session we will learn how to take simulators like PhET and create structured inquiry activities so students can get "hands-on" experience with the use of technology. 

A laptop computer is best for this session but Chromebooks and iPads will work too just at a lower functionality.
