April 15 Webinar - Focus on Literacy

Storybird

Looking for a unique way to enliven and motivate students during your literacy block?  Join us on Wednesday, April 15, from 7:00-8:00 pm for this live session with Megan Ryder of Downers Grove District 58. Storybird is a wonderful web tool where students can read and write original stories, share stories with others, and get authentic feedback from fellow classmates. During this Wednesday Webinar, we will explore how Storybird can be used during whole and small group reading and writing instruction, and during literacy stations/centers. Participants will also walk away with different ways to implement Storybird in the classroom for all subject areas. 

ICE Webinars are free to members, but you must register to receive the link to join the live session on April 15 at 7 pm.  Registration is open, so register now to save your spot for this great live online session!

Just One Thing

It's been over a month since ICE 2015, PARCC has come and gone and most of us are either just returning from or preparing for spring break.  In our March newsletter, our Executive Director, Dr. Margaret Johnson, encouraged ICE 2015 attendees to commit to doing "just one thing" from the ideas/skills/networking shared at ICE 2015 and to document their commitment.  Some examples from folks who have responded and completed our Just One Thing form include:

  • I am committed to proposing a coding curriculum in our elementary school district.
  • Bring coding and making into the school day not just in after school clubs.
  • To add new assessment tools like Plickers, Socrative, Today's meet, and Quizizz to show student growth.
  • Jim Sill's keynote taught me about the ability to download (not just use) the music available in YouTube.
  • After the keynote I purchased a Makey Makey kit and I'm committed to getting my Code Club working with the kit.

We'd love to hear from more of you about the impact of ICE 2015, and we our form is still collecting responses!  Also, if you haven't checked our new  ICE 2015 Session Resources, we are pleased to see that many, many of our presenters have submitted links to their session presentations and other resources.  If you were a presenter, your submissions are still welcome, so please add your resources to our collection! It's a great way to check out sessions you missed or revisit those you attended.  Many thanks to Amanda Pelsor and David Chan for planning and creating the structure for our resource page!
