    If you registered to attend the 2019 Christa McAuliffe Transforming, Teaching, & Technology Conference (CMTC19) at the DoubleTree Hotel in Manchester you should have received an email about this.  The CMTC Steering Committee hopes that 2020 has started well for each of you.

    This year for our Gold, Silver, and Bronze sponsorships, we included a webinar opportunity as part of their sponsorship benefits.  We felt this would be a win-win for both our solution partners and our attendees. It provides our valued sponsors another opportunity to engage with our attendees to share with them changes in the edtech marketplace since CMTC.  It also enables CMTC to provide new content to our attendees throughout the winter and spring as we are busy preparing for CMTC20.

    The following webinars have been scheduled to date: (please see descriptions below)

    One Tool - Automated and Secure Network Directory Provisioning, Single Sign On, Rostering and Digital Material 

    You want your IT team to spend their time on initiatives that support teaching and learning—not toil over rostering and account provisioning. We’ll show you how to quickly, easily, and securely automate these time-consuming tasks. We know the importance of access for instruction, but account secjurity and access are vital today for the privacy and security of data.

    Audience: Tech Integrators, Library Media, Technology Leadership, School/District Leadership
    Future Ready Alignment:  Technology & Robust Infrastructure

     

    Aligning Future Ready School with Future Ready Tools

    Join representatives from Alma along with Tom Murry in helping Future Ready educators attain competency-based results through the use of Alma’s critical SIS tooling.   We will explore the alignment of Alma’s more intuitive and powerful platform to the Future Ready Framework – meeting districts, schools, and educators where they are at and take them where they are going.  Together, we will shift our focus back to significantly more personalized teaching and learning!

    Audience: K-12 educators, Technology Leadership, School/District Leadership
    Future Ready Alignment:  Curriculum, Instruction, & Assessment

     

     

    Discover #WriQ, the #FitBit for student #writing

    Join us to learn how to get back your precious time. #WriQ  helps with automatically marking spelling, punctuation and grammar in a few clicks!

    Audience: K-12 educators, Tech Integrators, Technology Leadership, School/District
    Future Ready Alignment:  Curriculum, Instruction, & Assessment

     

    Aligning Best Practice to Improve Performance

    Join us to learn how VitalInsight technology assesses the strength of research-based best practice in districts and schools, and the new generation of data that provides proven remedies for improved outcomes.

    Audience: K-12 educators, Tech Integrators, Technology Leadership, School/District Leadership
    Future Ready Alignment:  Collaborative Leadership

    Please note the following regarding the CMTC19 webinar series:

    • Pre registration is NOT required, just launch the Zoom link provided a few minutes prior to the start time.

    • There will be an opportunity to request that the solution partner contact you following the presentation as desired, this will be “opt in”.

    • All webinars are being recorded and will be posted to the CMTC19 YouTube channel within a week following the live event for viewing at your leisure.

    • Our facilitator, Gaby Richard-Harrington, has significant experience with solution partner webinars and seeks to keep the presentation engaging and interactive.  There will be limited time provided for Q&A following each webinar.

    • You are welcome and encouraged to share these webinar links with your colleagues.  You do NOT need to be a CMTC19 attendee to participate in these webinars.

    Some of our sponsors opted to provide us with a video to post on the CMTC19 YouTube channel instead of conducting a live webinar.  Please check this video from WCA:

    Additional webinars and video postings will be announced throughout the coming months.

    Free Professional Development for Teachers by Teachers

    EdCamp is an unconference.

    What Does That Mean?

    Come enjoy a day with colleagues. Arrive with an idea for a session that you would like to lead or with the anticipation of a full day of learning. A session might explore a technology tool, a discussion about best practices, or a collaborative presentation with multiple facilitators.

    During the first hour, you will have time to meet other teachers over coffee. There will be an empty session board where you and all attendees can post session titles.

    Over the course of the day, you will have the opportunity to attend up to four sessions. Edcamps empower attendees with the rule to “vote with your feet”. If a session doesn’t meet your needs, simply get up and move on to another room.

    We will be providing a certificate of attendance for the professional development you receive. You will learn something new, maybe make a new friend, and receive information that you can immediately apply in your classroom and professional life!

    What is the Cost?

    EdCamp All Learners is free. Breakfast & Lunch will be provided by local sponsors.

    What Should I Bring?

    Bring a friend. A laptop, tablet or device with wireless Internet is useful. It will allow you to view the session board online, take notes, and view websites discussed throughout the day.

    CS4NH and the NH Tech Alliance Workforce Development Committee is launching a social media campaign to highlight real-world experience in CS and STEM jobs in NH. For teachers, we'd love for you to share your story and share the social media feeds with your students, fellow teachers, and administrators. You may want to reach out to those with interesting stories to see if that person might come into your classes or at least answer some questions from students.

    The campaign will be focused on the week of November 4, the beginning of technology month. We are asking people to post one sentence to Twitter, Facebook and/or LinkedIn the answer to – what do you love about your job?

    “I love my STEM job because I get to… “

    “The best part of my CS job is… “

    There are numerous events around the state this year that engage students in CS and STEM activities (shared below). Our goal is to use this social media campaign to show students, teachers, administrators and more how education can translate to meaningful work.

    Would you join us and bring a few colleagues along with you? :)

    Challenge Brief

    How can we improve the world? The TCS’ Ignite Innovation Student Challenge wants to inspire students in 6th-8th grade and at least 10 years old to answer this question by sharing an idea for a digital solution, like a mobile app, website, robot, or wearable tech. Work with a team (up to 4) or on your own to define a problem that can be solved through a digital innovation in the areas of Health, Our Planet, or Education. All you need is an idea communicated via a 1-2-minute video that addresses how the digital solution will improve the world and the computational thinking strategies that were used to guide to the solution to win BIG!

     

    Tata Consultancy Services, (TCS), a leading global IT services, consulting and business solutions organization, and Discovery Education, the global leader in standards-aligned digital curriculum resources, engaging content, and professional learning for K-12 classrooms, are launching the second year of igniting innovation through computational thinking.

     

    The TCS’ Ignite Innovation Student Challenge encourages sixth through eighth-grade students to use computational thinking to create digital solutions that improve the world and solve problems impacting TCS’ three social responsibility pillars: Our Planet, Health, and Education. Digital solution ideas will be communicated through 1-2-minute video entries submitted by April 9, 2020. The winner will receive a $10,000 scholarship and a virtual mentorship with TCS team members and partners. 

    “TCS is committed to preparing the next generation of young innovators by providing resources to foster their creativity so they can find solutions to societal challenges,” said Balaji Ganapathy, Head of Workforce Effectiveness, TCS. “We’re excited to see the fresh ideas, spirit and innovation that come out of this year’s TCS’ Ignite Innovation Student Challenge.”

     

    Launched in 2017, Ignite My Future in School is an initiative that combines the best of digital content, lesson plans, career vignettes, and professional learning to help teachers prepare their students for careers of the future. The TCS’ Ignite Innovation Student Challenge launched in 2018 connecting computational thinking strategies and real-world problem solving.

     

    “Ignite My Future in School provides educators and students with useful resources that offer hands-on practice applying the concepts of computational thinking,” said Lori McFarling, Senior Vice-President and Chief Marketing Officer, Discovery Education. “The ‘Ignite Innovation Student Challenge’ takes that practice a step further, empowering students to truly believe in their ability to solve real-world problems.”

     

    1st Place:

    $10,000 scholarship, a virtual mentorship with TCS employees and the chance to work with TCS to make your idea come to life!

    Top Pillar Prize:

    $7,500 scholarship for top entries in Health, Our Planet and Education.

    Winner's Circle:

    Six $1,000 scholarships
