DawsonKelly5thLeaders of their own learningJulyI love the emphasis on project based learning. I went online and spent a lot of time looking at the expeditionary learning as well. There are fully planned projects already out there that fit common core. I like that my students can take a basic project and expand it into their interest, but also really learn about committing to something and producing their best work. 2 days

DeReefNieshaThird GradeLeaders of Their Own Thinking (Summer Reading)June- JulyThis book reinforced the importance of allowing students to have input as well as a deeper understanding of what they are learning and why they are learning.

DialKristinaResource TeacherEnrich training for IEPs6/12/2014This is the first year for IEPs to be on Enrich in Richland Two. I learned how to use the program when adding and/or updating IEPs. Now on Enrich you can also create progress reports, keep track up upcoming deadlines, and referral to eligbility determination. In the near future, it might be a place to track your progress monitoring on students objectives. It was very user friendly. 1 day
DialKristinaResource TeacherImplementing Social Thinking Concepts and Vocabulary6/9-10/2014Beckham Linton was a guest speaker from Kansas. She talked a lot about social thinking and explained the 4 steps of communication. I learned a lot about teaching students the correct ways to communicated. I really liked the vocabulary she uses because it was right inline with whole brain teaching. I also have been reading a book she recommended called Whole Body Listening by Susan Truesdale. I think that social teaching has a lot of information and could be something we use all though NSE. 2 days

DialKristinaResource TeacherSC Midlands Tech Summit6/11-12/2014Where do I begin? is a website that I learned about and have been using with my personal children at home everyday day since I left. Explore Learning has create a math fact fluency that kids LOVE doing. Reflex continuously monitors each student's performance and individualizes the program for each student. As a teacher, you can decide if the student need addition, subtraction, multiplication, and/or division fluency. The program needs to be used three times a week for at least 15 minutes. You can monitor student fluency growth. It is great for RTI progress monitoring! I also learned about QR codes and Aurasma. I have thought of so many creative ways to use this with book trailers, meet the teacher night, making posters/pictures with digital videos, and digital storytelling projects. VERY EXCITING!!2 days

It continually monitors and adjust to teach and reteach just 4 new facts each day for a 14 day free trial.

HardingChristineMusicSC Midlands Tech Summit6/11 & 6/12 Leslie Fisher and others were amazing. I set up a twitter acct for NSE Music and linked it to the school's acct. Augemented Reality is where the future is at...however, I still think we need to teach everyone the skills to sit still and just visual...just listen. I'll probably work on that this next year. I have pages of notes that are already in Google Drive. I loved that Leslie said Google Plus is being dissolved, and nobody knows what's next. Just lets you know that technology is not always successful. WeVideo was basically an infomercial...expensive & not as user friendly as many things.2

HendersonDanaSpecial ServicesEnrich Training for IEPsJune 9The new Enrich system for IEPs has a document that is generated that has to be signed off by both special services designee and parent for any team members who are absent from IEP meetings. The document has to be filled out by the team member who will be absent including an excuse for the absense. I'm going to love this document and the new system. It is more user-friendly than the last IEP system. 1 day
HendersonDanaSpecial ServicesSC Midlands Tech Summit June 11-12I have a vision for my students to create daily visual diary entries that will go into Digital Portfolios. These portfolios will allow students to see their social-emotional growth as well as increase self-esteem and self-confident. I also plan to use QR codes in the classroom to differentiate social-emotional skills instruction. Augmented reality seems pretty cool. I really enjoyed Leslie Fischer's presentation on Thursday.2 days

Mrs. Germann, Dr. Catoe, Mrs. Conklin, Ms. Robinson, Ms. DeReef, and Mrs. Glover were able to attend with me. We spent some time studying formative assessment, math practice standards, and text dependent questions. Tomorrow, we will be focusing on one of these areas. I believe that we have chosen math practice standards to tackle tomorrow. We were able to develop a plan for beginning a conversation about the importance and implementation of text dependent questions (TDQ's). This conversation will begin on August 13. 2 days
