Oprah-Style PD: You Get A PD! And You Get A PD!
Wouldn't it be incredible if we could give the keys to professional development to ourselves and our teachers? In an iconic TV moment, Oprah Winfrey gave cars away to the entire studio audience composed of people who were in desperate need of a car.

In education today, professional development is experiencing a renaissance. The internet has allowed educators to take ownership of their own professional development, building relationships and sharing best practices via blogs as well as social media platforms like Twitter, Voxer, and Facebook. In addition, rather than dictating sit-and-get, one-size-fits-all style professional development, schools and districts are experimenting with personalized professional development.

In this session, you will hear one school's story to offer up personalized professional development to its staff members. Resources and strategies will be shared to bring personalized PD back to your site or district. Imagine teachers opening a little box and realizing they have been given the keys to their own growth and the opportunity to go explore their own passions!

Teaching Math with Google Apps
Alice Keeler wrote the book on Teaching Math with Google Apps (literally!). Teaching math in the 21st century is different, it asks students to be critical thinkers, model their math, critique the reasoning of others, and to analyze. Many of the math problems we have traditionally been using have literally become obsolete as a result of modern technology. This is a gift! This session is an introduction to ways we can use Google Apps to make this shift.

This simple and easy to navigate website will turn your ordinary videos into complete lessons by adding valuable features like audio and text commentary, and multiple choice and short answer questions. The program also makes it possible to crop videos, as well as replace audio tracks. Your students will no longer stare off in to space as the video plays in front of them, because with EDPuzzle the video will pause and require students to be engaged and utilize the information presented in the video. You as the teacher will be able to add important information to any video you can find, and get immediate feedback on your students understanding of the information presented. The best part is you can still use the videos you already use now, and there is a huge database of already prepared video lessons for you to choose from. With EDPuzzle finding, creating, editing, assigning, and grading video lessons is so simple and easy you will be using it every day!

Oprah-Style PD: You Get A PD! And You Get A PD!
Wouldn't it be incredible if we could give the keys to professional development to ourselves and our teachers? In an iconic TV moment, Oprah Winfrey gave cars away to the entire studio audience composed of people who were in desperate need of a car.

In education today, professional development is experiencing a renaissance. The internet has allowed educators to take ownership of their own professional development, building relationships and sharing best practices via blogs as well as social media platforms like Twitter, Voxer, and Facebook. In addition, rather than dictating sit-and-get, one-size-fits-all style professional development, schools and districts are experimenting with personalized professional development.

In this session, you will hear one school's story to offer up personalized professional development to its staff members. Resources and strategies will be shared to bring personalized PD back to your site or district. Imagine teachers opening a little box and realizing they have been given the keys to their own growth and the opportunity to go explore their own passions!

Since 2003, the Student Technology Showcase has been a much anticipated part of CUE’s national conference in Palm Springs. The Showcase was originally sponsored by the California Department of Education and supported by California Technology Assistance Project (CTAP) and featured student technology-integrated projects that aligned with California state standards.

With the introduction of the Common Core State Standards and the focus on STEAM and the Maker Movement, CUE aligned the 2016 Showcase to reflect how students are learning by doing. The CUE Student-Powered Showcase (SPS) will invite conference attendees to participate actively with students in creating, problem solving, and learning. Attendees might collaborate with students on a robotics or 3D-printing project, or they might get down on the floor to figure out how a Sphero works. The SPS will be guided by a Task Force of innovative CUE members and is produced in partnership with the Orange County Department of Education.
