    What: Digital Learning Specialists Roundtable - Elem ~ New for 2018/19 
    Where: Peter Woodbury School, 180 County Road, Bedford, NH 03110 
    When: Thursday, 14 Nov 2018

    NHSTE is proud to announce a new professional development offering for the
    2018/19 school year ~ Digital Learning Specialist Roundtables

    The second Digital Learning Specialist Roundtable is being hosted by Nicole Cassamassino at Bedford's Peter Woodbury School for elementary school Technology Integration Teachers/Specialists.  Part Learning Tour, part EdCamp, and part discussion group, the attendees set the discussion topics for the day and support each other with their challenges.

    We know that professional development is important for everyone. In many cases, technology integration teachers are solo in their own buildings or districts. This roundtable opportunity is for those technology integration teachers interested in having conversations about particular topics to improve instruction for staff and students in their own district. Topics/discussion will be tailored based on participant attendees thoughts. Time will be built into schedule for a tour of school/staff conversation. Let’s get together to have thoughtful conversations to help move our schools forward.

    A light breakfast and lunch are included in the registration fee.  Attendees are encouraged to bring both their best practices and challenges.

    NHSTE is recruiting hosts in locations around the state, for additional roundtables in 2019.  If you are interested in hosting a Roundtable event at your school, please contact, Cyndi Dunlap, NHSTE Professional Learning Chair at cdunlap55@comcast.net.

    Registration is limited to 20 participants, so register before the school year begins to ensure a seat!  NHSTE Premium members receive advance notice of this opportunity.

    Friends of NHSTE and New Hampshire Colleagues, 

    This post is targeted to anyone from New Hampshire (NHSTE member or not) who is going to ISTE18 in Chicago at the end of June. Hard to believe that the school year is nearly over and in about a month some of us head to Chicago for ISTE 2018!!!

    NHSTE is once again planning the New Hampshire Networking Dinner during ISTE.  We generally meet after the opening keynote on Sunday evening, June 24th, probably around 8:00pm ish this year at a restaurant near the NHSTE hotel.  This event has ranged from a small group of 12 to 15 to a group of over 40 of us! We have gone to some gourmet restaurants and some more casual locations.  I have already located two options close the NHSTE hotel, the Fairfield Inn & Suites Chicago Downtown, 216 E Ontario Street Chicago, IL 60611.  Once I have an idea as to how many are interested, I will finalize the location.   Anyone from New Hampshire (and their guests) is invited to attend.  

    Please complete this quick 5 question survey to let us know your plans. The options on the survey include "probably' and "maybe", so you do not need to be sure of your plans at this time.  Those providing me with their email address on the survey will be added to a list of individuals to receive detailed ISTE18 information from NHSTE moving forward.

    If you have not already done so, I invite you to complete the very short survey for the ISTE18 NHSTE Networking Dinner RSVP at:

    Fourteen New Hampshire schools began a Student Technology Leadership program called GenYES at the beginning of this school year. In these schools, 176 students were highly prepared using the GenYES curriculum to assist their 492 teachers as well as administrators and IT staff integrate technology into their schools. These Student Technology Leaders (STLs) accomplished this by completing 459 (as of 4/20/18) Technology Assistance Projects (TAPs) in collaboration with teachers and IT staff. TAP examples from each school can be found in the attached PDF. The 14 NH schools included 2 high schools, 1 middle school, 4 K-8 schools, and 7 elementary schools.

     

    Gen YES is a great way to get your students up to speed with ICT Literacy, personalize their learning, and help your teachers increase their tech skills. As you plan for your 2018-2019 school year, consider hosting a Gen YES Chapter in your school.  New Hampshire has a great initial start up rate of $2975 per school.  Annual membership is only $500 per school.  The Gen YES program and philosophy align well with our New Hampshrie initiatives of personalization, competency based education, and the Future Ready New Hampshire initiative.

     

    The Gen YES New Hampshire Consortium hopes all NH schools will consider implementing Gen YES in your schools for 2018-19.  The Gen YES model is flexible enough to fit into any school program.  The fees support an abundance of training materials, access to the Gen YES online student TAP reporting/completing system, statistics on students and TAPS, as well as an up to date student curriculum. The nonprofit Generation YES organization is happy to take your phone calls (888-941-4369) or email inquiries (support@genyes.org).  The Gen YES main office is near Seattle, WA, in Pacific Time, so please call after noon.

     

    The Gen YES New Hampshire page on NHEON.org now features some sample Technology Assistance Projects (TAPS) completed by New Hampshire students.   You can learn more about GenYES New Hampshire at nheon.org/genyes and genyes.org.

    Things are hopping over here at Antioch University New England this spring. I wanted to let you know that in addition to the STEAM concentration in our Experienced Educators Program, we're also launching a stand-alone pre or post-masters Certificate in Integrated STEAM Education. Both programs are low- to no-residency and are rooted in experiential learning, classroom facilitation, authentic assessment, PBL and SEL. Can you help us spread the word? We're still accepting applications to begin this summer.

    Thanks,

    Laura Thomas
