71-Inspiring AWESOME in every educator through personalized PD

In the fall of 2012, Byron Public Schools (BPS), a small district of approximately 1850 students, incorporated its own variation of the flipped professional development coaching model to support the the technology integration needs of every Pk-12 educator. The technology tsunami was fastly approaching BPS! Online learning, Google Apps, iPads, Web2.0, BYOD had already made its way into the district, changing many of our classroom’s teaching and learning strategies. While we were fortunate to have “Pockets of Wow” (Doug Johnson) educators, the technology skills gap between the early innovators and late adopters was increasing at a rather fast pace. Traditional “sit and get” PD was not conducive to the amount of change technology had on teaching and learning. Technology PD could no longer be supported by 1 or 2 people. We needed to do something, it needed to impact every educator, and we needed to do it now.

The Byron digital learning network was formed and 7 new teacher leaders positions, called digital learning coaches (DLCs), were created. The district worked with the DLCs to develop a Flipped PD model that would support digital pedagogy and classroom innovation for ALL PK-12 teachers. This session will share key components of the plan as well as the triumphs (BIG GAINS) and tribulations of the district’s Flipped PD journey.

76-Tapping those Apps... Making it Hip (and Easier) to Flip
With the increased availability of iPads, flipping your classroom is becoming more manageable and accessible for teachers. But once you have an iPad, how do you start? What are the best apps to use, and what challenges might you face? Two veteran teachers will discuss some of the apps used during their first year in a fully flipped course. Doceri and ExplainEverything will be demonstrated with other apps mentioned, as well. Pros & cons of these apps will be discussed while fielding participant questions. Attendees will have the chance to create their own content on their personal iPads. It is suggested that you bring a laptop and an iPad pre-loaded with the aforementioned apps in addition to an Evernote or Dropbox app that already contains potential presentation materials (pdf files, powerpoints, etc.) for the purposes of importing in your practice presentations.

98-Flipping and Learning by Doing
In order to facilitate the teaching of speaking and listening skills, teachers need to continually find engaging and interactive methods to trigger students’ interest and motivation. Through the use of videos, teachers are able to integrate and customize their tasks based on students’ needs and learning styles.

Video based instruction, hosted on Wordpress, allows classrooms to go organic and ‘live’ with a click of a button. After input from the blog videos, students are assigned to create their own digital stories based on communication themes introduced to them. These in return are shared by them on a common blog platform as contributors to a wider range of audience.
