Well not really 101 ways, but perhaps some things you’ve not thought of using UTIPS for.  The purpose of this session will be to let you get an idea of the possibilities of using UTIPS other than for End of Level Test Review.  All levels of experience with UTIPS welcome from “UTIPS, is that a new beef dish at Texas Roadhouse?” to “I can create a UTIPS test in five minutes or less, blindfolded, with one hand tied behind my back.”  Here are some of the things I do with UTIPS in my 5th grade classroom:
• different types of questions, tests, subjects
• easy test taking and reporting capabilities
Come to this session!   This is not a how to create a test in UTIPS, although you will be shown some tricks to make test creation easier that I’ve not seen anyone show in other UTIPS classes.

Finding First Success-Energizing Non-Techie Teachers
Limited Capacity seats available

Give your curriculum a spark with these energizing projects even technophobes will love. Explore strategies for implementation and new ideas for assessing learning. Over the past couple of years, we have developed some sure fire "first projects” using Pixie. These projects connect to curriculum and make our teachers and students believe in the power of producing, not just consuming media. Many of these multimedia projects are then "globally published” online. Students become so excited because they have become "real authors”. This initial success led many of my teachers to see how creative technology projects enhanced their curriculum. Several of our teachers started out simply creating class newsletters to enable them to become more comfortable with the technology. They are now making logical connections to how they can tie their curriculum to multimedia. As a bonus, they are finding their students are more interested in the subject matter. During this session I will be sharing cross-curricular samples of student work. I will also be collaborating with the audience on ideas for a short story. I will start a Pixie project to tell their story. Then, I will enlist some volunteers to add some illustrations and lend their voices to read some text into Pixie. We will choose some background music and prepare the project for publication. I will demonstrate the various options to share the project and show how quickly it can be "globally published”.

The Power of Storytelling in Teaching and Learning
Limited Capacity filling up

Within the last 10 years, digital cameras, editing software, authoring tools and electronic media have encouraged teachers to utilize many more approaches and tools than ever before to help students construct their own knowledge and ideas to present and share them more effectively. One of these powerful approaches to multimedia production is digital storytelling. This presentation will provide an overview of digital storytelling and its implication for teaching and learning. Characteristics of this technology will be discussed and demonstrated throughout the presentation. Participants will learn how to use digital storytelling from introducing new material to helping students learn to conduct research, synthesize large amounts of content and gain expertise in the use of digital communications and authoring tools. Integrating digital storytelling allow students to build meaning and understanding through visual storytelling, script writing, storyboarding, narration, audio and still images. Participants will come away with the knowledge of applying digital storytelling in educational contexts. Along with identifying what components are necessary to create a great digital story for the classroom and learn the different digital storytelling options, platforms, peripheral hardware, and functionality (Audacity, Photostory 3, iMovie, Bubble Share, PhotoBucket, and Movie Maker). Participants will gain knowledge in copyright laws and Creative Commons Network. They will become skilled in strategies for planning a digital storytelling project: writing a script, planning a storyboard, voice, narrative, special effects and transitions, images and audio.

Free Online Decoding Strategies Training to Improve Literacy for Struggling Readers
Limited Capacity seats available

Research has proven that many learning disabled students, including dyslexic individuals, have trouble breaking words down into letter-sound segments. But research has also proven that they "can learn these relationships with intensive phonics training” (Shaywitz, 2003). Because of this research, we know that students with low reading abilities need to be explicitly taught decoding strategies that train them to hear sounds and join them to make words. We also know decoding strategies help students develop automatic recognition of sounds and their written representations

Launching a Successful Summer School/Credit Recovery Program

Credit recovery is a hot topic in schools. How do you offer it with limited resources to an increasingly diverse student population? Aventa Learning by K¹² can help.  Students who process concepts at a slower pace... students who need more ELL support... students who've just had a bad year. The reasons students fail a course are as varied as the students themselves.

To help your students master material in a course they didn't pass, research tells us it's not productive to repeat the exact same lessons and content. Rather, they need a different approach. Aventa Learning by K¹² offers a fresh, and proven, online credit recovery option for your school. Come see how to start, or re-energize your existing summer school/credit recovery program and learn how schools around the country are achieving impressive results.

And, Why Is This Not Cheating?
Limited Capacity seats available

Cheating is something that is not often talked about other than to mention, "Don't do it!” right before a test. It is occurring right under our noses, even in plain sight. As many as 95% of our students admit to cheating. Cell phones, IPods, and programmable calculators are the preferred tools of cheaters today. Students have become very apathetic about cheating, claiming that it doesn't matter, everyone is doing it, or no one cares. Often students don't even recognize some cheating behaviors. In this session I would like to raise awareness of cheating in our schools and offer ways to open communication and hopefully minimize cheating in the classroom.

With such an increased demand for connectivity, it is not uncommon to find ourselves in data closets trying to figure out the source or destination of cables and we struggle attempting to identify the exact location of critical systems and services. In this session we will discuss best practices for administration of network resources, labeling and documentation of existing cabling plans in order to simplify troubleshooting and facilitate future growth.

Closing Keynote-Technology in Education

Since the proliferation of the television in the 1950’s technology has been has been held up as a potential panacea for education reform.  The emergence of the personal computer and the rise of the Internet promised to transform the American classroom yet resulted in few fundamental changes in how teachers teach or how students learn.  So why now? Why will technology now change education in a way that it hasn’t in past decades?

Jaime Casap from Google will discuss why the current revolution in information will leave no classroom untouched and give examples of how the revoltion has already started.

Developing Interactive Multimedia to Enhance Elementary Students' Critical Thinking in Science
Limited Capacity seats available

BYOL-A key challenge in science education is to develop robust scientific thinking skills that can be transferred to learning experiences outside the classroom. Partnering with the Utah Museum of Natural History, we developed a multimedia learning module for 4th grade science education that helps student develop skills in scientific observation. The learning module builds upon cognitive principles of learning by providing contextual practice that supports students in:
1) connecting new information with prior knowledge,
2) developing multiple perspectives, and
3) applying critical thinking skills in ill-structured scientific environments.

The presenters will demonstrate the observation learning module and discuss how specific components of the module are designed to develop robust scientific thinking. The presenters also will highlight the value of educational technology in helping students develop the cognitive skills necessary to analyze, synthesize, and evaluate information as they learn in out-of-classroom situations.

In sum, this presentation analyzes the critical role of educational technology in student learning in science education. It explores the potential for cognitively-based multimedia to promote authentic learning. Thus, it is significant both at theoretical and practical levels. At a theoretical level, it contributes to our understanding of the cognitive functionality of multimedia and its impact on students' critical thinking skills in science education. At a practical level, the project yields a prototype multimedia instructional module that can serve as a model to inform the design and development of technology-enhanced science instruction for students.

Take Your Classroom Global
Limited Capacity seats available

BYOL-TakingITGlobal (TIG) operates the world's most popular online community of young leaders. TIG members inspire each other to make a difference, learn about issues that matter, and find out how to constructively channel their energy and ideas. With a growing membership of close to 300,000 individuals in over 200 countries, www.tigweb.org has reached 10 million youth since its launch in 2000. As TIG's vibrant global community has evolved, educators have sought to integrate its resources and focus on action-based learning into their teaching. This was made easier in 2006, with the launch of the TakingITGlobal for Educators (TIGed) program. TIGed comprises a community of educators interested in empowering their students to think and act as world citizens, a collection of resources that facilitate the inclusion of global perspectives in the classroom, and a virtual classroom that allows students to use technology to learn with and about peers the world over. Depending on the amount of time available for this session, it could range from a simple introduction to the platform to a hands-on workshop in which participants create and build their own online classroom communities.

Using the National Science Digital Library in Teacher Preparation: Research Findings and Practical Strategies
Limited Capacity seats available

BYOL-Increasingly, educators are attempting to integrate technology-based practices and resources into classroom instruction. Hanson and Carlson (2005) found that 100% of teachers could articulate benefits of using digital resources in the classroom, but teachers also noted that finding useful digital resources takes too much time and the resources themselves need significant modifications before they can be utilized.

Educational digital libraries seek to provide teachers and learners with access to high-quality, online educational materials by cataloging only resources that meet standards for instructional value and accuracy (NSDL, 2010). The search tools provided by the National Science Digital Library (NSDL) may support efficient identification of educational materials for the classroom because searches conducted using the NSDL return only instructionally-relevant resources that have met preexisting quality standards.

Thus, we hypothesized that searches conducted within NSDL would be more likely to provide high-quality, reusable curriculum materials compared to a commercial search engine. In a study with preservice teachers, we examined how search tools provided by the National Science Digital Library impacted the success with which participants identified relevant educational resources that they deemed appropriate for classroom use.

Findings demonstrated an advantage of NSDL Science Literacy Maps over keyword search tools. NSDL Science Literacy Maps may be effective because they provide teachers with an organized representation of domain learning goals that can help structure the search for educational materials in a domain. We will discuss these results and their implications for practical strategies to support the search for online, educational materials.

Strategies for Increasing Student Learning with Online Videos: Findings from a NetSafe Study
Limited Capacity seats available

BYOL-This presentation will highlight useful strategies for increasing students' deep, meaningful learning with online videos, as informed by our research with videos to teach internet safety to adolescent learners.

The increasing presence of Internet as a communication tool among adolescents has raised concerns in parents, teachers, administrators, and other stakeholders about the safety of adolescents' online behaviors. Studies show that 84% of the adolescents have used some form of the Internet (e.g., instance messaging, texting, etc.) for their social communication.

Research also suggests that the Internet has become a vulnerable place where adolescents frequently are targeted by sexual predators in cyberspace.

As a result, non-profit organizations and educational institutions nation and worldwide (e.g., Latvian Internet Association's Internet Safety project, Utah Education Network's NetSafe project) are developing educational materials for youth about Internet safety. Education efforts surrounding internet safety are especially challenging because they must develop deep knowledge about online behaviors that students will transfer to new situations outside of the classroom. We studied the differences between individuals and dyads in learning the video content using shallow and deep questions and prompts.

Preliminary results demonstrate that meaningful learning about Internet safety can be promoted by drawing upon learning science research that employs high-level prompts and collaborative models to encourage deep thinking. We will discuss the implications of these findings for teaching with video content.
