#iTeach808 : Empowering Hawaii’s Teachers In Technology   Saturday, September 10, 2016

Virtual Reality
Michael Fricano II
Google Cardboard is an amazingly simple, yet versatile, tool can immerse your students in virtual reality experiences like none other. This session is meant to be a fun exploration of Google Cardboard. We’ll play with a handful of great apps and discuss ways in which this great new tool can be used in the classroom.
Google Classroom
Kevin Allen
Stay organized, streamline delivery of lessons, collect assignments, enhance engagement, and edit/comment/grade/return in bulk! Google Classroom is perfect for your 1:1 classroom.
Photo/Literature Journaling
Maia Rosen
Take a journey through literature with photography. The novel Half a Chance by Cynthia Lord is the perfect springboard for students to combine a love of reading with photography. Students chronicle Lucy’s journey as a budding photographer by creating their own photo journal and learn to find the “story” in their photographs.
Creating Non Fiction e-Books
Amanda Bobbitt
Everyone is an expert at something. Now, you have the chance to write a book on it! Come learn how to research a topic of your choice using kid friendly search engines such as Kiddle and KidRex, pull facts from the Unlimited Library App Epic!, and create your own e-book with Book Creator. Soon, you’ll be an expert on creating Non-Fiction eBooks too.
Student Driven Digital Portfolios
Michelle Colte
The App Seesaw will help you develop student driven digital portfolios. Age appropriate, authentic audience, strengthens school/home connections and 100% teacher friendly.

12 Breakout Sessions

The first 100 at the door will receive a free copy of Alan November's book.  Register today!  

Check out the 12 breakout sessions on Saturday, September 10!

The theme this year is preparing 21st century learners.  Our goal is to learn how to use technology to teach students the 6Cs of education: connectivity, communication, collaboration, creativity, culture, and critical thinking.  How can we leverage technology effectively in the classroom to prepare 21st century learners?  Keynote speaker Alan November will be discussing his book Who Owns the Learning? and sharing ways to use technology to achieve these goals in the classroom.

After the keynote, you will get to meet each presenter during the meet and greet, then decide which one you'd like to revisit for a more in depth 1 hour classroom workshop.  No RSVP required for each session.  Just register to attend the conference!

Coffee, breakfast, and lunch will be provided.  This event is made FREE thanks to our sponsors, Sacred Hearts Academy and the Augustine Educational Foundation.
