Badges, badges, badges. Fun, motivation, excitement. Ok, you get the point. Badges are a time tested (think like for 10,000 ago or more) method to bring out full achievement in students and adults. Everybody loves to receive recognition for things they have done. The communication revolution (thanks Internet) means we can both give and display badges on a grander scale than ever before. Concordia is currently in a beta test stage for using badges with students and we would like to share our experiences so far.

This workshop will cover some of the ins and outs of using badges in and outside of the classroom. Specifically:

* How it works
* Using Mozilla's Open Badges Program
* How to issue badges
* How to display badges
* Badge use cases
* Setting up systems at your school to enable effective badge distribution

2. Strategies for bringing digital badges (reward systems) into the classroom

This workshop will consider practical aspects of using video conferencing such as Skype as an integrated part of the IBDP programme. It will share a unit and resources from the Language and Literature course, some of which can be used and adapted for a range of subjects.

YesSaturdayD420MikeMuralMike Muralmuralm@yis.ac.jpYokohama International SchoolSaturdayD420Digital Storytelling... and Beyond!Elementary school teachersFor students, now, the written form is not the final stage of the writing process. The issue is about how to best take the students' work from the written form of expression to a form of effective digital publishing.
This can be applied and extended elsewhere to other subjects, besides Language Arts (poetry, short stories) to connect any activity to creativity: Science (reports); Mathematics (data handling), Art (advertisements) or Drama (different types of performances/emotions).
1. Choosing the Best Format: There are many easily accessible and easy-to-use applications to create many different versions of your students’ written work.
2. Choosing the Best Picture: Ideally, if working towards 100% ownership of student work is your goal, an important first step involves the student choosing (and, preferably taking) their own photograph to be used with their own words in their work.
3. Choosing the Best Location of Words: Placement of your words in your work can be just as important as the words themselves: if the audience cannot clearly read your words, their attention is lost.
4. Choosing the Best Style: The colors that you use, whether in the foreground or background, can be just as important as the words and images in your work. Your choice of colors should reflect the mood of your work.
5. Choosing the Best Location to Share your Work: Students now have the opportunity to share their work with a worldwide audience. Choosing the best location is very important.

Teachers who currently teach with a flipped-curriculum.
Explore-Flip-Apply is an improvement on the traditional flipped classroom approach. A traditional flipped classroom usually has a rather simplistic approach of front-loading students with all the knowledge and content and then doing all the practice questions in class. This new approach has a more "scientific-method" feel to it. The students are presented with the phenomenon or given the chance to formulate their own questions and problems first - as part of the explore phase. Only then are the students given the usual flipped curriculum. As well as this, the workshop includes my first-hand experience and a discussion on other ways that the flipped and apply phases can be implemented rather than simply giving them a video to watch.For the veteran flippers: A new approach to revitalize their flipped curriculum.
For those who are skeptical: inspiration to actually convert, with the fresh ideas which draw upon many of the web2.0 applications that have recently been made available - voicethread, googledocs, mindmeister etc.
For the reluctant adopters: ways to introduce and implement a flipped curriculum who feel the weight of authoring a mountain of original content.

Some argue that learning cannot be measured - it can only be documented or evidenced. Mobile devices offer new and possibly more effective ways of helping students and teachers in making their learning more visible to themselves and others, for example parents.

This is a very hands on workshop. Whilst it can easily be applied to other platforms for ease of management we will use iOS devices.

The SAMMS framework helps by determining exactly what the 'magic ingredients' are that move tech use from the mundane to the magnificent.

Determining these 'ingredients' starts from a position of describing what it is about digital technologies that make them unique, transformative—what is it they facilitate that cannot easily be replicated with traditional tools? Exactly how do pixels out perform paper?

SAMMS: The transformative, unique affordances of digital technologies that transform learning & teaching.
An understanding of not one but two frameworks: RAT and SAMMS. One to assess the ways ICTs are being used, and another to help deisgn activities that are truly transformative. SAMMS+SAMR=Transformation
As one of Primary School Digital Literacy Facilitators at UWCSEA. my role is to facilitate activities, both formal and informal, within a range of contexts and involving a variety of participants, which contribute to enhanced teacher understanding and practice involving digital technologies to support students’ learning.

Participants will come away with a model and the resources needed to start a positive prevention program in their own schools.

This interactive lesson can be taken back to their own schools and implement it through Health classes, an Advisory program, or as a High School peer mentoring group.

There will also be time during the session for participants to share the issues they are dealing with, as well as any interventions that have worked for them in the past. Hopefully, this will help us create a network of cyberbullying experts within the international school community.
