Science and Literacy through Technology Based Simulations
Presentation Description: Science and literacy through technology based simulations prepares teachers to use the inquiry process and simulations to support the development of deeper student understanding of important science concepts and demonstrate that understanding through literacy components. The instructor will model best practices for teaching with simulations in science including a project based approach that allows students to demonstrate understanding through deliverables. Teachers will become more skillful in using inquiry methods of instruction, which encourage students to ask questions, make observations, and construct reasonable explanations.

Science for All - Using Technology to Increase Science Accessibility
With the projected increase in STEM-related careers over the next ten years, there is an expectation of both excellence and equity in science education. What methods can science teachers use to make science accessible for all students, and give every student the opportunity to pursue a STEM-related career?

This presentation will provide practices, websites, and technologies that can be used to assist all students in making science concepts and practices more accessible. The Universal Design for Learning (UDL) guidelines will be introduced and woven throughout the presentation to demonstrate how they can be used as a blueprint for designing a science curriculum that in both accessible and inclusive for all students.

Using Note Board in Literacy Instruction
Remember when you had a cork board in your bedroom or on your dorm room door? It was fun to post pictures of your celebrity crushes, friends, and favorite quotes and was even better when you found a note from a friend. Note Board, a Google extension, is an online cork board with a multitude of uses. This session will focus on how to use Note Board in literacy instruction, specifically in place of reading response journals. Students will love leaving “sticky notes” about their independent reading and sharing their boards with their peers and teacher. Students can personalize their board with different backgrounds, drawings, and pictures. The session will explore other uses, including science projects, creating class book lists, and more!
