Welcome & Keynote
This is the kick-off for the 2019 NMDLC Day 1. No need to put in your schedule!

Welcome: APS & NMSTE

Keynote 
Speaker: Leah Rogers, Dell
Description: Technology is changing the way that students learn today.  Learners have more access to technology, applications and programs that are helping personalize each student’s learning experience so they can maximize learning opportunities.  Learners have countless tools that provide them with immediate information and knowledge at the access of their fingertips.  Teachers roles are shifting, and educators are becoming more like facilitators of learning - acting more like “a guide on the side than a sage on the stage.”  How are you helping students shift from consumers to creators, acquiring necessary skills to help them be better prepared for their future?  Come listen and explore new ways to design learning experiences and environments that leverage technology and push student learning forward!

Expanding your Toolbox by using Video Conferencing

In my classes, guest speakers have included admissions counselors from the universities of Ohio State, Kansas, Washington State, Yale and Arizona, representatives from WUE Program (Western Undergraduate Exchange), Baylor University's "First-In-Line" program and the Minorities to Majorities website.

Flipping IN the Classroom
Limited Capacity seats available

The Flipped Classroom instructional model is turning our traditional ideas about classroom instruction upside-down in schools across the country, and research shows that students benefit from the more individualized face-time they receive with teachers during class as a result. But how can the flipped model work if your student population does not have access to digital tools and high speed internet outside of the classroom? Jennifer Gonzalez (of Cult of Pedagogy) offers a solution in “The In-Class Flip” Model. In this session, Kris Armijo shares her experiences in applying this model during a recent unit of math instruction in a 5th grade classroom. Examine her personal successes, challenges, and lessons learned and explore ideas for implementing this blended learning model in your classroom. Presentation materials can be accessed at bit.ly/InClassFlip.

Flipping IN the Classroom
Limited Capacity seats available

The Flipped Classroom instructional model is turning our traditional ideas about classroom instruction upside-down in schools across the country, and research shows that students benefit from the more individualized face-time they receive with teachers during class as a result. But how can the flipped model work if your student population does not have access to digital tools and high speed internet outside of the classroom? Jennifer Gonzalez (of Cult of Pedagogy) offers a solution in “The In-Class Flip” Model. In this session, Kris Armijo shares her experiences in applying this model during a recent unit of math instruction in a 5th grade classroom. Examine her personal successes, challenges, and lessons learned and explore ideas for implementing this blended learning model in your classroom.  Presentation materials can be accessed at bit.ly/InClassFlip.
