Eric Curts
, Stark Portage Area Computer Consortium, Technology Integration Specialist

Title: Tech Skills for Next Generation Assessments

Description: With PARCC and Smarter Balanced, schools are moving to online assessments that include technology-enhanced, interactive assessment items. It is critical for students to be proficient in these technology skills prior to taking the online assessments so they will be assessed on their content knowledge rather than their proficiency (or lack of) with technology. In this webinar, you’ll learn what technology skills students need for these next generation assessments and see free online resources that help students develop familiarity and proficiency with these technology skills. For more details see http://nextgen.apps.sparcc.org/.

Kristin Fontichiaro,
Clinical assistant professor at the University of Michigan School of Information

Title: Setting Your Sights on Inquiry: Strategies for Launching Research Projects that Promote Inquiry in Students

Description: Shifting from fact-gathering to inquiry as the root of research projects can be a tough adjustment! In this one-hour webinar, we'll talk about the early stages of inquiry-based research and examine strategies for frontloading inquiry research with both scaffolding and space for open-ended questioning.

Monday, August 4, 2014
12:30pm - 1:30pm (EDT)
Todd Duncan,
Library Media Specialist, West Muskingum High School (30 mins)

Title: Library Thing as a Visual Guide to Your Collection          

Description: For many students, the first thing they notice about a book is its cover. Realistically, we can’t display all of our books with the covers facing out. But by using “Library Thing,” we can create a virtual display of all of our book covers.  By the end of this webinar you will be able to create a cover view of your collection that you can display on your school library website.

Amy Gibson, Library Media Specialist | Theater Teacher, Heath High School (30 mins)

 Title: Adventures of an App-Smashing Librarian!

 Description: One app is great, but this session will show you how App-Smashing (using 2 or more apps together, in this case combining the video app Tellagami with iMovie and Explain Everything) can make presentations, tutorials, and learning experiences deeper and more versatile.

Title: Library Adventures in Transforming Student Learning…and Proving It

Description: Is your library helping your school meet Ohio’s New Learning Standards and transforming student learning?   Can you prove it? In this high-impact session, you’ll discover ways to expand your school library access to learning resources and reading materials at no or nominal cost. You’ll also learn practical systems of tracking that can be applied in any library (automated or non-automated) so that you can report how important your library is to student learning.

Tuesday, August 5, 2014
12:30pm - 1:30pm (EDT)
Heather Hersey

Title: Flip your Library

Description: Library orientations are usually brief, so we need to maximize the time we spend with students and focus on what really matters. Using an animated video created with GoAnimate and a learning management system, the Lakeside School librarians flipped their orientation to focus on the information search process and cultivating a “just ask” library culture.  Heather will share why and how they made the flip, in addition to other ways Lakeside is using the flipped model and how the flipped model is resulting in more student interaction. She will share a LibGuide of presentation resources.

Tuesday, August 5, 2014
