Bootstrap: The Future of Algebra Education
Limited Capacity seats available

Teach your students to code and reinforce their Algebra skills using this FREE Common Core aligned curriculum that runs on a Chromebook! Students write, compile, and troubleshoot their code with WeScheme, a cloud based programming environment. Your students will program their own video game using code and Algebra(order of operations, linear equations, piecewise functions, compound inequalities, and distance formula). Bootstrap is aligned to the following Common Core standards:

MPs #1-8, N-Q, 6.NS.5-8, 7.EE.1-4, 8.F.1-3. A.SSE.1-4, A.CED.1-4, A.REI.1-4, A.REI.10-12, 8.G.6-8, F.IF.1-9, F.BF.1-4, F.LE.1-5

How to Start Your School's Future Video Broadcast
Limited Capacity seats available

Have you ever thought about producing a video broadcast on your campus? In today’s media-rich environment, many school administrators are interested in starting a video channel for their school, but are not sure where to start. They know it is not that hard to put a video together, or to upload one and share it with friends and family, but they don’t have time to research how to put together a video broadcast studio on their campus.

A student broadcast performs vital functions of information distribution, social impact, and vision casting.

A video broadcast production team gives a regular opportunity for students to practice communication, collaboration, creativity, and critical thinking in a hands-on, project-based, time-sensitive environment.

Come hear from veteran teacher/video producer Cliff Rosa and digital-native teacher/tech evangelist Mark Grisafe about the ins and outs of putting together a working, cost-effective system and implementing a student-created video broadcast schedule.
