Workshop- ASL After Hours: Professional Development Workshop for Educators
Come join us for an American Sign Language workshop for educators through videoconferencing. All you need to connect will be a computer and a web camera or a videoconferencing device. ASL is not only for special education teachers, no matter who the students are, an educator and their students can benefit greatly from learning ASL. From early education all the way to post-secondary, knowing the basics of ASL will enhance every teacher's ability to communicate with their students. As a teacher you will have students in your classroom with varying learning and communication styles. Your ability to communicate with every student is a win-win for everyone! Learning ASL will open up a world of communication with people that you may never have had the skill or opportunity to interact with. By sharing your knowledge of ASL with your students you will be promoting awareness and acceptance of diversity in our community and world. Some of the topics that will be taught will be: ABC's, Colors, Family, #s 1-10,Common Objects, Foods, Teacher /School/Classroom signs, and much more! The last session will conclude with presentations from participants. Format: Vocabulary will be introduced, then practiced in context using a functional-notational approach. The functional-notational approach is a way of structuring activities around "notions," real-life situations in which people communicate, which are further broken down into "functions," specific aims of communication. (Participants will practice the language one on one, and in groups through a variety of formats including partner activities, games, technology) Payment Info: Please go to link and complete the registration to pay online ($80) for the ASL After Hours class-https://registration.xenegrade.com/ocmboces/courseDisplay.cfm?schID=4379 ASAP. You will need to set up an account, if you have not taken previous classes with the Adult Education Program, and pay.

Online Class: Teach Above the Line--Applying the SAMR Model for Transformative Teaching
Teach Above the Line introduces educators to the SAMR Model, a framework designed by Dr. Ruben Puentedura to help conceptualize meaningful instructional technology integration to transform teaching and learning. This course is divided into several Modules that will introduce you to teaching strategies at each level of the SAMR hierarchy. The goal for each Module is to assess and modify your lesson plans to effectively integrate instructional technology into your professional practice.

This course will require a minimum of 6 hours to complete the various tasks and assignments. There are no face-to-face meetings--all course content will be available exclusively on Google Sites. All course interactions will take place on Edmodo. Enrollment codes will be shared once the course begins.

ITD TALKS: The Critical Thinking Through Coding Experience
Our students are growing up in a world in which they are immersed in digital tools that are part of their everyday lives. While it is one thing to know how to use these technologies, it is just as important to understand the logic behind them as programming is quickly becoming a basic literacy in the digital age. The CNYRIC's Critical Thinking Through Coding program introduces learners of all ages to the problem-solving skills needed for computer programming through a series of hands-on activities with a variety of robotics platforms. Join us for a fun-filled day of collaborative problem solving as the CNYRIC's ITD Team takes you through a series of robotics challenges to help you learn through experience. By the end of this event, you will have a better understanding of coding and will have the confidence to facilitate coding and robotics initiatives in your own classrooms. No experience necessary! Robotics platforms include Sphero, Dash and Dot, Kibo, and Cubelets.
