Removing the Shackles to the “Sage on Stage” Approach to Teaching
With the nascent, almost ubiquitous use of mobile devices and tablets in the K12 learning environment, it is vital teachers harness the necessary skills to modify current teaching practices. An observable gap in pedagogy is the creation and implementation of formative assessments. A critical edtech tool educators use to support, engage and formatively assess their students is TodaysMeet (https://todaysmeet.com). The TodaysMeet website, in conjunction with the Ipad, gives educators the freedom and opportunity to monitor, measure and redirect instruction when and where necessary in a seamless approach.

Rapping Across the Curriculum: Using Student Created Hip-hop to Express Content Understanding
You may have your own opinions about rap and hip-hop, but it’s a fact: "kids-these-days" are listening and loving it. Use that to your advantage in the classroom. Attending participants will be supplied with or made aware of the rubrics, assignment-sheets, incentives, and the apps and resources necessary to host a rap battle in their classroom. Examples of quality student work will be shared. There will also be a brief demonstration of how teacher-created raps can be used as teaching tools. If implemented in a structured, focused manner, student rap battles can be a fun, manageable, creative way to engender enthusiastic student participation and expression of content-mastery.
