Fact vs. Fiction: Teaching Critical Thinking Skills in the Age of Fake News
At the end of 2016, The Oxford Dictionary named “post truth” its word of the year, citing as its definition: “relating to or denoting circumstances in which objective facts are less influential in shaping public opinion than appeals to emotion and personal belief.” In an age in which information is abundant, easy to access and often overwhelming AND in which there’s economic incentive to mislead consumers, discerning fact from fiction has become THE 21st Century skill. In this session Jennifer and Darren will explore the fake news phenomenon, discuss its impact on our students, teachers and society, put our own source evaluation skills to the test and discover ways that all educators can lead the charge as defenders of facts in a post truth world.
Join ISTE authors Jennifer LaGarde and Darren Hudgins as they expand upon tactics outlined in their book, Fact vs. Fiction: Teaching Critical Thinking Skills in the Age of Fake News. Attendees will gain practical strategies and skills for navigating the landscape of fake news and helping students think critically about how they receive, evaluate, and share information.

My first video projects with children were done with a room full of eMacs and 3 or 4 Sanyo Xacti handheld video cameras. Sharing cameras, long rendering times and lost projects made me want to tear out what little hair I had. But even though I was frustrated with missed deadlines and technical hurdles, my 5th grade students were not. In fact they were giving up lunch-recess and staying after school to work on their projects.  So how do we create video projects that connect our students with their school community? I’d like to share some ways I’ve done that, and explore other possible project ideas. Everything from documenting a personal place, teacher, or event, to creating a p.s.a video to help younger students with anything from how shoot a basketball to how to survive homework in 5th grade.

The Internet as a medium, or way of communicating, is dynamic, complex, exciting, amazingly diverse, and, in plenty of substantive ways, pretty much nothing new. We have made connections through printed texts and oral stories for generations, other media have filled the gaps between peoples and cultures. There is, to quote a rather old text, nothing new under the sun.

Bring Mentor Texts to Life with micro:bits
In our district, we empower all students to be both users and creators of technology. Since all 4th and 7th grade teachers and students have been given the opportunity to use micro:bits and they work so well with the mentor texts, students are bringing literary concepts to life.

Mentor texts are in your classroom and as you know, they are an essential component to literacy acquisition. Micro:bits are an easy addition to the reading, listening, and writing units of study, and in this session we’ll show you how you can use these little yet powerful devices to enhance your mentor texts.

Micro:bits not only allow us to further engage students with reading for detail and thinking about how the story translates into the physical world, they also allow learners to take the setting, characters, themes, words, and illustrations and make them more concrete. Students have been using the micro:bit and it’s additional components within a design process to identify and solve problems by creating new, useful or imaginative solutions to represent literacy concepts such as character traits, story plot, story details, and close reading.

Do you want students to analyze and demonstrate how they think and what they understand in a variety of ways? Do you want students to take ownership of their learning and growth? Do you want to create an environment where reflection and feedback are an integral part of the learning process? If you've answered "yes" to any of these questions, then you are ready to create a classroom focused on student-centered assessment and feedback.  **PLEASE BRING HEADPHONES!*

From Figure to Ground: How Tech Threatens to Turn Education From an End to a Means.
Public education began as compensation for a life of labor - a recognition of human dignity and the value of learning itself. These ideals have always been at risk of subversion by the needs of industry and the power of capitalism, but the utilitarian affordances of digital technology risk turning the classroom into an extension of job training. How have students become the objects of education rather than the subjects, and how can we retrieve the spirit of learning, both in school and as an essential human expression?
