Moonshot thinking. Constructive failure. Passionate learning. As educators, we seek to empower our students to be owners and directors of their own learning. In this presentation I will share how integrating a 20% project into your curriculum can revolutionize and refresh your students' desire to learn. This presentation will explore how the utilizing the entire suite of Google Apps (drive, docs, presentation, sites, forms, and much more) can facilitate the implementation of these student-centered learning opportunities. This would be best as a two hour session, but could be compressed into a one hour session. I will share my personal classroom experiences as well as allow time for participants to plan how they will integrate the strategies shown. This is the first part of a two-part workshop.

School Wide Technology Integration Through Visionary Leadership
Next year we celebrate the 20th year since the Netscape Navigator web browser and the breakout moment for the world wide web. But how far have we come toward effectively integrating these new information technology tools into education? With best practice staffing and professional development structures in place schools can transform the learning landscape for students and teachers through technology. Successful growth and support of mobile learning technologies is possible. Let's take a look at how the technology leadership structure of one school works to increase the effective use of technology. We will see concrete examples from a successful K-12 1:1 tablet environment and provide parallels for how these structures can be implemented in other schools and district wide.

Writing With Kid Blog
In this session we will take a look at Kidblog, a great site for student blogging. You will learn how to create a class blog where students can participate in an online discussion about literature, history, or whatever you choose! I will share examples from when my students read a novel with another fourth grade and shared a blog in response to the text. Kidblog has great options that allow teachers to edit responses, approve student comments, add classes, and more. This is a wonderful way to motivate students to interact with each other online in a positive, effective way. Please download the Kidblog app before joining us for this session!

Creating a Dynamic Classroom
Armed with iPads and laptops that give easy access to social media, games and more, students can often seem unengaged and distracted to their frustrated teachers, who can feel like their job is to police their use of these devices. This workshop will focus on how to create a dynamic learning environment in which students are fully engaged technology users who take ownership of their success in the classroom. Instructional approaches to creating a successful technologically infused classroom will include the use of Socratic seminars, working in teams and role playing.
