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.

Pin It! Transforming Social Media Networks into Professional Learning Tools
In this presentation we will share how iPads have been used to increase cross-curricular collaboration and form a relevant and user-friendly professional learning network within a school. Instead of forcing teachers to adopt education specific software, the goal is to transform personal social media applications, websites the majority of teachers already use daily, into powerful professional learning tools. By channeling the familiar, teachers can take advantage of the same applications for sharing photos and vacation adventures and transform them into tools for increasing collaboration, sharing instructional strategies, and aligning curriculum.

This presentation is for people who want a simple way to record lessons and get them to their students either for a true flipped classroom or to simply be able to easily differentiate instruction and work with small groups to make the most out of your instructional day.

My modified flipped classroom can be used at any grade level. As long as students can press play they would be able to view your lesson or instructions and free you up for more intensive help for those who need you the most.
