Samantha Bahna (Instruction - All Levels) Better Connections Through Active Engagement, Big Data, & Personalized Learning: Want to ensure that your tech-enhanced lessons are being understood? What is the difference between consuming technology instead of creative, collaborative-rich projects that facilitate cooperative learning? This session demonstrates how to create engaging lessons that are self-paced and place students accountable for learning.

Arlen Kimmelman (Diversity/Inclusion - Middle and High) We All Make History: LGBTQ+ & Disabilities Resources - Presentation of a school’s website created in support of the NJ CHAPTER 6: chapter 35: Title 18A of the New Jersey Statutes: C.18A:35-4.35 “History of disabled and LGBT persons included in middle and high school curriculum” in effect starting with the 2020-2021 school year.

Amy Popp (Technology - Elementary, Middle and High) Using Animoto to Encourage Student Creativity and Learning - This Spark and Tell session will briefly highlight the use of Animoto in library media
classes (grades three and up) to promote and encourage student creativity. Animoto is
a wonderful tool for students but it requires some skill to obtain full accounts (not trial
accounts) for students. Instructions will be given and student work will be shown.

Steve Tetreault (Technology - All Levels) BookClubShare.com: A Free, Educator-Created Resource - At an NJASL Edcamp in March 2018, some librarians lamented the lack of a way to easily pass on their book club materials. Based on this conversation, BookClubShare.com was created by an MI student. Learn how, and how to save space and money by giving and getting book club materials.

Leslie Wise and Lauren Heiba (Makerspace - All Levels) Planning an NJ Makers Day Event - NJ Makers Day has been a success in New Jersey for four years. If you'd like to join in the fun either during the
school day or after school, for one day or a weekend, we have experiences to share! Talk to us about how we plan and pull off this very popular event for our District. Projects, documents and examples will be shared to jumpstart your own ideas on what might work in your district.
