"Screencasting" - the 'flipped learning' jury is invariably either in or out, but sharing your screen remains a practical solution to many challenges! A hands on PD experience for teachers, this session is labelled "Fun"!

MinecraftEDU is coming to The LOFT. In partnership with University of Northern Iowa, this provides hands on (beginner) experience with Minecraft, while also linking to curriculum standards and sharing examples of how Minecraft has and is being used to promote student engagement and learning. Prepared by Keith Ferrell in collaboration with the Technology Team at Singapore American School, we are proud of this session and excited to get started.

BreakoutEDU in TheLOFT this week. In partnership with University of Northern Iowa. 9 sessions to attend. The LOFT Professional Learning is: Just-in-time, Voluntary, In-House, and Everyday. Thanks to the EdTechTeam for a great pre-conference at the Singapore Summit featuring GAFE. This session (prepared by Kelli Buxton and James Shin-Gay) was inspired by that learning experience.

The Singapore American School EdTech Team has prepared a session that gathers together a range of techniques and ideas about how to collect evidence of students learning. This in fact is a frequent question asked of us through the PLCs.

The territory covered includes collecting photos, videos, data via forms and spreadsheets, as well as other apps and ideas adapted from Kath Murdoch's 'Power of Inquiry' book. Additionally, there are work-flows that could really free up your ability to collect student work with greater efficiency and collaboration within PLCs.

Autocrat: An annual PD at Singapore American School because we use this great add-on to consult with students about their Strengths and Goals for the school year. We use Autocrat to generate a personal document for each child > Share with parents at Conferences > and email home (an option). This PD is for newbies and veterans. The slidedeck is a resource for anyone curious about Autocrat! #sasedu   #sastheloft
