A fun story about Renee Klein

Hello - my name is Renee Klein, and I am from Mohawk HS. I know you've never heard of it - it is a tiny rural schoolnoutside Eugene. I teach language arts, social studies, special education, and competitive robotics. I currently have 12 middle school VEX IQ teams, 1 elementary VEX IQ team, and 3 high school VEX EDR teams. Robots robots robots! 💖 We are doing phenomenally well this year - I have 3 teams who qualified for Nationals this year, so we are off to Iowa in April for competition! Woo! 


My take aways

I love the resources and Talk Move folder provided. Great resources and information that ties directly into a district level PD that we are running with elementary teachers!

This email/blog post is a great and easy way to start sharing with students and I see multiple opportunities to get students sharing in the classroom. That will be great motivation for students. 

K20 and OETC data base--great stuff!

My toolbox is growing. :)

Compliance within engagment

I want to expand on this idea of what is compliance in an engaged classroom. I feel Admin need to understand this to not stifle teacher creativity.

My take away

The K-20 Oklahoma site is a definite "gonna use".  This session site will be used as well, thanks!

My Take Away Towards Implementation

Finding ways to help teachers balance they types of engaging strategies/apps used to help meet the needs of introverts and extroverts.

Sent from my iPad

Take Away

K20 strategies for some possibly "fresh" ideas.

Engaged students may not be the "ideal" student of compliance that some teachers seek. Engagement is students pushing the boundaries, asking questions, adapting lessons to their needs/wants, and the teacher working with the students. Considering the concept of student vs teacher centered classroom allows you to reflect on your classroom philosophy.

Sent from my iPad

Session take-away towards implementation

A co-peer coach and I have created a Google Classroom where we plan to invite the teachers at our school as participants. We will post links and ideas there for specific content at specific grade levels so teachers can search tags and find ideas to make their classrooms more engaging and 21st-century learning. I plan to include links to the resources I learned in this session as well.

The K-20 learn database is a great site for engagement activities that can extend from Pre-K to Professional Learning sessions.  

My Takeaway...

I learned about Quizlet Live, and the K20 class grouping resource. A+!

My Take Away Towards Implementation

I have a staff member that has been wanting to implement blogging with her students. I have a couple of new ideas to bring back to her, such as tagging and creating authors (don't publish until teacher approves).

Quizlet Live

I'm excited to go back and try Quizlet Live. My students love Kahoot but I have to be careful not to play it too often or they get tired of it really quickly. This will give me another great option with the additional group options.

Funny story about Heather Marrs

I am a third grade teacher and EdTech teacher leader in Southern Oregon. I have been teaching for 10 years. I moderate the Oregon EdChat which you can find at #OrEdChat Sunday nights at 8:30pm. I have a husband, Ryan, and two kids, Madelyn and Jordan. 

Having small children gives you lots of funny stories....
The other night my three year old did not eat her dinner so she was not allowed to eat a treat later in the evening. At some point she got very quiet so I went looking for her and she was hiding in her room with her mouth full of something. It turns out she found her older brother's snowman art project from school the month before that had mini marshmallows glued on. She had pulled the marshmallows off the art project and ate them. #supermom #creative

A Funny Story about Sean D's Students

Sean Dugan-Strout from Eagle Point / 5th Grade

How about a funny thing that 2 of my 5th graders shared???

After sharing an intro. story about the universe, one student shared (really loudly with another), "what if the universe is filled with cows??? You know, like space cows?" The other student quickly replied by saying, "Is that why they call it the Milky Way?".

Howdy!

Sitting here at AcceleratED hoping for that illuminating moment when I know the trip from Grants Pass was well worth the drive through yet another Pac NW rain storm.  The title of this session, Tools Helping Shift Compliant Students to Engaged Students, seems promising.  Discussing with a colleague the importance of finding ways to get those students who may be compliant, but who are artful at taking cognitive siestas while appearing to be engaged.  Hopeful I go away with some tricks!

I come from the small town of Sheridan, Oregon and landed in the only slightly larger town of Pendleton, Oregon.  

The best part of my story is my beautiful girls.  My oldest daughter, Kyndra, is 14 years old.  The loves music and movement of any kind.  She is a budding triathlete and loves to ski. She is smart and HILARIOUS!  She keeps me rolling everyday.

My younger daughter, Kylee, is truly the kindest human I have ever encountered. She spends her days caring for others and brightening the days of everyone she meets. I am sure life will lead her in some sort of humanitarianism mission of sorts. 

My girls are my adventure.
