    Tech Expo

    This is the LHRIC's capstone teaching and learning event for the year! This event is designed for district stakeholders from across the region as a showcase for what works, what we should look forward to, and even what to avoid as we move to a more personalized learning environment across all teaching and learning. The LHRIC is frequently asked to help districts learn about what others are doing well, and what should we be paying attention to. This is that event! The keynote speaker for TLI Tech Expo is Liz Kolb. Celebrated professor, classroom teacher, presenter, and author. Her most recent publication is Learning First, Technology Second where she demonstrates her Triple E Framework for assessing the effectiveness of technology in lesson plans. For questions regarding this activity, please contact Sarah Martabano.

    Teams of librarians and classroom teachers in grades 3-8 will work together to learn the basics of film making (on January 30 & 31) Focus will be on film techniques (such as angle, timing, and more) and creating a story with your film. This program will be useful for those who have participated in a previous Maker programs, as well as for newcomers. Participants will begin by spending two days with the videographer who will demonstrate film making and storytelling techniques. Strategies to include students as filmmakers and creators will be discussed. This hands-on and interactive workshop will leave you inspired and equipped to teach through your students’ language. The third day, February 27, will be spent developing curriculum applications. On the morning of June 3rd, we will share and celebrate our work. We recommend using iPads for this program. The use of a Padcaster will not be necessary, although it may be helpful in the long run.
