    This hands-on bring your own laptop workshop will allow participants to explore the full power of Google applications as educational tools. Many of these applications are web based, make full use of collaborative environments and engage learners in unique ways. While the array of Google tools continues to grow, the workshop will focus on a tested set of applications that will enable teacher educators to realize the potential of these widely accessible and free tools. No prior experience working with Google applications is necessary, but all participants should create a free Google account prior to the workshop.

    W3: Developing TPACK in ESL Instruction as Educators and Technology Integration Specialists – Cultures of Instruction and Communities of Practice (Bring Your Laptop or Device)
    Integrating appropriate technological, pedagogical, and content knowledge in the field of ESL involves challenges for technology integration specialists and ESL educators. The K-12 ESL educator field is an amalgamation of instructional models that require customized approaches by educators and specialists alike. This workshop is an opportunity for ESL Instructors, Technology Integration Specialists, and everyone in between to collaborate and develop effective learning centered frameworks for technology integration in the ESL learning environment. Once the dialogue has been constructed, a second opportunity exists for educators and specialists to collectively model and theorize methods for developing sustainable ESL communities of practice that utilize technology in meaningful ways.

    W4: Integrating Mobile Technologies into Innovative Transdisciplinary Universal Design For Learning (UDL) Projects
    Melda Yildiz & Gregory Shepherd
    This workshop session offers an experiential and exploratory look at the role of mobile technologies in teacher education; outlines creative strategies and possibilities for integrating mobile technologies into K16 curriculum with limited resources; and demonstrate examples such as StarTalk grant using Ipad touches to teach Hindi and Indian Culture and Global Kitchen Project to develop healthy eating habits; and showcases participants’ projects and digital stories as a virtual gallery walk. We present wide range of meanings participants associated with experiential project based learning activities; the impact of mobile technologies in developing multicultural and multilingual curriculum that promotes differentiated learning; the ways in which participants integrated math, maps and media into their learning; and how they gained alternative points of view on global issues and renewed interest and commitment to world languages and global education.

    W5: Using STEM to Innovate, Educate and Transform Learning with Geographic Information System (GIS) Technologies
    GIS & Citizen Science, use STEM to Innovate and Educate. The panel will demonstrate best practices from ESRI, Concord.org and the National Geographic in these categories. A geographic information system which integrates hardware, software, and data for capturing, managing, analyzing, and displaying all forms of geographically referenced information. GIS allows us to view, understand, question, interpret, and visualize data in many ways that reveal relationships, patterns, and trends in the form of maps, globes, reports, and charts. GIS helps us answer questions and solve problems by looking at our data in a way that is quickly understood and easily shared. GIS technology can be integrated into any enterprise information system framework. GIS gives us a new way to look at the world around us. We will demonstrate story mapping, and citizen science using probes in STEM and use of geographic information systems in communities to educate, inform and create transformation.
