    This wiki was set up for staff of WMS to use as a guide if considering going to eTech 2014 (or any of the ISTE conferences) and as a place to hold resources that I thought might be valuable to our students and staff.
    There are pages dedicated to some of the sessions or a group of similar questions.

    I was disappointed in this session--thus I did not give it-it's own page. ABDO sales pitch for books--mostly for graphic novels. He had a little resrearch on graphic novels. Nothing new in this session to me.

    Presenters: Me (Karen Reiber) and 6 awesome Middle School Students
    When I heard the conference theme was: Equip, Engage and Empower--I knew I had to bring students!! This is what I do with my Tech Club Students!
    Focus:
    1.Basics of Tech Club--types of activities, agenda of meetings purpose and how this spills over into the classroom.
    2. Vidoe Announcements: Students presented on Scripting, Filming, Editing, Greenscreening, Web 2.0 Tools and uploading to Cowboy Tube.
    I then talked about they use communication skills , train students in equip and tools, and talked about copyright and royalty free pictures and music.
    Here is the link to the presentation:
    http://technoqueen.edu.glogster.com/etech-ohio-confernece/
    We presented from a Glog. A great presentation tool. We shot some green screen footage for demo and had drawings!
    It was a great experience for me and for the students.
    Being a presenter--if you are considering it, gets you three days admission FREE to Ohio eTech.

    Welcome to eTech Ohio
    ...
    and staff.
    There are pages dedicated to some of the sessions or a group of similar questions.
    I spent time in the Exhibit --which is always fun to see new products, software etc. I spent some time with our vendors--OnMedia and Follett--working on some glitches (if they weren't busy) and how we can expand what we are doing at WMS.
    I love lego robotics--would like to get Tech Club started into some engineering tech!!
    I also spent time with vendors getting some info on LCD infomation for district IT.
    You also get to play with new products--love some of the smart stuff! I can't wait to get some new stuff when renovate!
    Last part to mention is networking. Conference gives me an opportunity to network with others--they are not all tech coordinators--most are classroom teachers, some post 12 educators and some media specialists. I have made some good contacts that I use virtually!

    Indian Hill launched their BYO in the 2011-12 school year. This is a district that we are often compared with so I thought this would be a great session to attend. It went into great detail on the steps they used. What I really like about their session is when Laura spoke and she talked bout how her teaching has changed since she had PD and then implementation into her classroom.

    Prepping for BYOD/1:1 Five Crucial Steps to Win Parent, Teacher and Student Support
    Presenter: Jean Mickelson Educator is Account Exec for Enterasys
    Jean's presentation was more focused on how to get the support to launch on all levels--community, parents, teachers, and students.
    She did not have an handout but I have also contacted her for surveys. :)
    Interesting when she talked about cost--some kids (high school) will need a camera, a calculator (perhaps phone) if you added the price up on all of those you might as well have bought a computer that can do all of those.
    She talked about extending library hours (even into the evening) for students who did not have internet access.
    She also said you can not hide behind "good" (in our case--"great") test scores. This is not about testing--it is about quipping students for life.
    Students in their lifetime will hold 10-15 different jobs in their lifetime. It is equipping them with technology skills that they can build on for the rest of thier lives. Students do need these 21st skills. How to post and respond using proper netiquitte. Preparing them for colleges and online learning.
    I might he need students to develop their own Personal Learning Networks--this is where they will really start learning through other experts online.
    I will pass around survey's if she sends them to me. All three were good sessions-each looking at different parts of this BYO or 1:1 Process!

    I attended three different sessions on this topic since this is where our district is heading.
    1:1, Implementation Timeline: Focus on Student Performance
    Presenter: Roger Minier --he works with NOET in professional development. He also teaches online graduate courses at Bowling Green.
    He had a great handout a timeline for help districts implement their 1:1. The 1:1 and Blended Learning as a preparation for Common Core, online assessments, 21st century skills for college, career and life!!!
    This timeline I am going to take to Mike and hopefully pass it on to someone at the district level. We have been batting this around for so long but at some point we need to jump and get the PD started.
    I am in contact with Roger for more information--starting with tech skills survey.
