9-9:50am ET: Fact or Fiction? Finding Fakery-Free Online Information
KET Education Consultants Kathy Davis and Larry Moore share how, in an age of misinformation, you can help your students find credible factual content when doing research for a school assignment or even to find out the latest news. Learn some basics of news literacy, including simple techniques the experts use for discerning the truth of online content such as “lateral reading” and “reverse image searches”. You will also learn about some great cross-curricular media literacy educational resources.
10-10:50am ET: Using Screencastify for Remote Learning
Dee Dee Webb, Technology Integration Specialist for Grayson Co. Schools, introduces Screencastify, an extension for the Google Chrome browser that allows you to screen record your explanations of lesson content while illustrating it on your computer screen. Videos are automatically saved to Google Drive and they can also be synced with Google Classroom. In this session, you will learn how you can use Screencastify in a remote learning environment to flip your classroom, blend learning or differentiate instruction. Best of all, Screencastify is a super easy tool! Additionally, you will learn how you can earn educator Genius and Screencaster Master badges from Screencastify to use in your email signature!
11-11:50am ET: Vide-ALL-graphy
Sam Northern, KASL President and LMS of Simpson Elem., discusses how videography lets students discover the fascinating world around them. Student-created videos are effective means for documenting events, telling stories, and demonstrating learning. There are more ways to capture moving images than you might think. This session presents ways to engage students in not-so-ordinary videography. Learn how students can use 360-degree cameras, trail cams, motion-activated devices, drones, and more to bring content to life.
