Get support and enhance your skills. 2. Stay on the cutting edge of technology. 3. Take yourself to a new professional level. 4. Share your solutions and ideas. Lunch will be served.

ESSDACK Tech Coordinators Group The ESSDACK Tech Coordinators Group (affectionately known as the Nerds group) is a study group of a sort that meets on a monthly basis Sept. - June to discuss technology issues and developments. Our membership represents districts from the large to the small. Most tech folks are somewhat isolated in their jobs, they have no one with which they can discuss technical issues. It is so nice to be able to talk with someone that gets it! At our meetings we have technical presentations by a variety of vendors at times. Typically, discussions and presentations are by members of the group, sharing their practices and methods to resolve problems. Tech Coordinators face similar problems, and many have found that having someone to talk to who's been there, done that is so beneficial! We also have an active Google Group for quick questions and sharing of solutions. Join our group and add your knowledge, and gain from our collective knowledge and experience. We meet typically on the first Friday of the month. Hope to add you as a member of the ESSDACK Tech Coordinators group! More

ESSDACK Early Childhood Professional Learning Community presented by: Jane Seward, Robi Alstrom, Katie Perez, and Renee Smith. Pre-K teachers, Head Start teachers, home-based preschools, faith-based preschools. In order to support the Kansas vision of increasing kindergarten readiness, ESSDACK is hosting a professional learning community for early childhood educators that will meet six times in 2017-2018. The Early Childhood PLC will be facilitated by a team of ESSDACK specialists, each bringing a specific expertise to share that allows participants to drill down in a variety of areas. Since early childhood educators are faced with the problem of having a limited amount of time to cover a wide range of skills, we will focus on integrating science, social studies, numeracy and literacy activities in order to maximize the use of time as well as look at strategies for embedding this learning into other activities throughout the pre-school day. Participants will receive at least six hands-on printed resources ready for use in their classroom. In addition, the PLC will discuss strategies for developing social-emotional skills and use the Kansas Early Learning Standards as a guiding document. This PLC meets on the second Friday of the month beginning in September 2017. ESSDACK needs 15 participants to hold this PLC.

K-8 teachers As educators we want all of our students to become critical thinkers, problem solvers and seek knowledge in order to improve themselves, and contribute to society. The maker movement is about teaching and learning that is focused on meeting this goal. Makerspaces belong as a component of all student’s education as they afford learners the opportunities to fully interact with information, generate connections and create individualized learning opportunities through the participatory culture allowing students to be civically engaged. In this workshop we will explore a variety of maker tools through both low-tech and high-tech challenges, identify individual student learning outcomes, and engage in a series of questions designed to guide you in creating a makerspace in your own classroom, library, or school.
