On the Air
One of the greatest benefits of 21st century, technology-infused classrooms is the integration of authentic audiences. Launching a student-led radio station (podcasting) has enabled Plymouth students to reach listeners worldwide with “live, local” shows produced solely by students. Podcasting empowers students to innovatively craft their own digital learning experiences through independent and collaborative discovery and creation while addressing the new media, speaking and listening, research, and writing standards. Podcasting allows broadcasting live through automation and streaming while always on the air. There are no streaming servers to support or drain on facility bandwidth, which is a concern in most school corporations. All that is required is a Mac and an Internet connection. This method allows teachers to empower students to innovatively craft their own digital learning experiences through discovery and creation.

Encouraging Student Thinking and Engagement through Effective Questioning
Questioning strategies need a boost? Phrasing effective questions is a critical teaching skill and one that is often overlooked or taken for granted. While it may take most of a lifetime to master the art of effectively using questions to drive learning, in this session participants will explore some relatively simple things teachers can incorporate into their practice as they progress on their journey toward mastering this art. In this session participants will learn the principles involved in designing effective questions that mediate student thinking, analyze questions for their effectiveness based on the three characteristics of mediatory questions, and practice designing effective mediatory questions in their specific content area. Participants will also explore six strategies for effectively using questions to encourage student thinking and engagement and will learn the one question that can completely change their classroom dynamic. Numerous opportunities will be provided throughout the session for interaction, discussion, analysis, practice, and sharing. Participants will leave with the skills and knowledge to apply the material immediately in their own classroom.

The design psychologies of 1:1 devices: A comparison of tablets, laptops, and handhelds and their effects on teaching and learning
In this presentation, Dr. Matthew Stuve, an industrial designer and educational psychologist, will compare some of the key features of typical 1:1 devices. Dr. Stuve brings a unique perspective to the ways of viewing such devices. His training as an industrial design helps him isolate and articulate physical design elements and form factors that effect how devices are experienced in the hand, the backpack, and the mind. Dr. Stuve will bring a number of devices that teachers can, literally, get their hands on. In this way, teachers can sharpen their understandings of the 1:1 devices factors and how they better select devices and the ecosystems.
