Explorations in Computer Science for K-8
Janice Mak, Data Science Academy UArizona
9:30 AM – 10:30 AM
In this session, participants will learn about and explore free resources to support students learning computer science. No computer science background is required, just a passion for sharing this critical skill with the youth with whom you work. Various block-based programming environments will be explored along with ideas to unleash youth engagement, creativity, and self-expression!
Understanding & Integrating WSCC, SEL, ACEs, and Bullying Prevention
Brad Snyder
11:00 AM – 12:00 PM
Contemporary education movements are an alphabet soup of acronyms and initials like WSCC (Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child), SEL (Social and Emotional Learning), and ACEs (Adverse Childhood Experiences and childhood trauma). Designed for out-of-school time professionals, this training unpacks these terms and explains how these movements work together and why OST professionals are essential to creating learning environments that are stable, bullying free, and successful for students.
Engagement Strategies through Inquiry
David Tong, TGR Foundation
1:00 PM – 2:00 PM
How do we keep our students engaged throughout the learning process? What are strategies we can incorporate into our everyday activities that promote curiosity and wonder? In this workshop, participants will engage in a “STEM Unplugged” activity that incorporates dimensions of engagement and inquiry-based instruction. They will also learn about additional free lessons and resources from TGR Foundation, as well as future professional learning opportunities to join the TGR Foundation Educator Community to continue their practice as an inquiry educator.
Camping in COVID Times: Effective Health and Wellness Measures
Tracey Gaslin, PhD, CPNP, FNP-BC, CRNI, RN-BC, Association of Camp Nursing
2:30 PM – 3:30 PM
The difficult summer of 2020 required a great deal of work, innovation, intentionality, and
grit. For those camps who provided services this summer, we can learn from them. This session will outline research information gathered from camps who operated this summer and discuss decision-making criteria about nonpharmacologic interventions (NPIs) that will help make camps possible in summer 2021.
