    Participate in One or More of the NH Consortium Projects and Get Some Great Deals for Your District

    Sketch Up Pro 
    A new version of SketchUp Pro has been released. SketchUp is 3D modeling software that is easy and intuitive, allowing anyone to model in 3D quickly and accurately. Using 3D models, students in your school can make more informed decisions, communicate project details, and share ideas with their teachers and classmates.

    NH 3DBear Pilot Consortium 
    3DBear, is an Augmented Reality “maker” program students can use to create, and then interact, with scenes on a phone or tablet. Teachers can use 3DBear in ELA, Social Studies, Science, Art, SEL, or Math to teach students or for students to demonstrate their own mastery. The act of creating for a real audience also teaches higher level skills such as design thinking, creativity, problem solving, computational thinking, and collaboration and provides a link between academic subjects, student interests, and the real world.3DBear works on iPads and iPhones (with an A9 processor or later), and Android devices. It will not work on most chromebooks or Windows machines. 

    NH GoEnnounce Pilot Consortium 
    GoEnnounce is an ongoing, student centric learner profile tool, which replaces paper binders. Schools and districts license a student’s own URL, that stays with the child year after year (k-12). GoEnnounce offers educators, administrators, and parents a quick and easy, interactive, assessment tool to understand the “whole child”, in all areas ranging from academic progression, planning future goals, and extra-curricular participation.

    NH Symbaloo Pilot Consortium 
    Symbaloo is an online tool for educators that makes it easy to save, organize, and share resources. You can use Symbaloo to store your favorite links, including: websites, articles, Google Docs, videos, and more. With a Symbaloo PRO workspace, you can publish valuable links on your own Symbaloo domain and share it with students, colleagues, or even parents!

    NH Loose Canon Pilot Consortium 
    Loose Canon is a tool for teachers that helps you organize and energize choice-based reading from 4th grade to 12th. Loose Canon will help teachers set up and track assignments for literature circles, summer reading, independent reading, book clubs, as well as traditional assignments. They make student-centered reading programs more manageable and more self-perpetuating—because teenagers (like adults) are most likely to choose and read books their peers recommend. 

    NH Cuppla Pilot Consortium 
    Cuppla is an easy-to-use software for centrally managing mobile devices and sharing digital content. Cuppla brings security settings, WiFi configurations and applications into one location so they can all be managed remotely. Cuppla Digital Noticeboard is a fast and secure way for sharing personalised digital content to different users and user groups. Users can access information selected just for them – anytime and anywhere. Teachers are able to easily share applications to mobile devices so they are always up to date and ready for use in teaching and learning. Cuppla also supports blended learning and safe use of BYOD with centralized licence distribution for Apple phones and tablets.

    NH TeacherGaming Pilot Consortium 
    TeacherGaming puts great games in the hands of teachers and students who can make the most of them. TeacherGaming matches teachers with suitable lesson plans, developed by a team of Finnish teachers specifically designed for TeacherGaming. TeacherGaming Desk links teaching game activities to real-life soft and hard skills, tracked through an online dashboard. Teachers can give students individually tailored feedback and focus on identified pain points.

    NH NBC Learn Consortium 
    NBC Learn gives students and teachers access to thousands of video clips from the NBC News archives, including historic moments – from the Great Depression to the Space Race to the latest political coverage. NBC Learn also offers Emmy-award winning original STEM content, lesson plans, and classroom planning resources, to enliven instructional material as well as stimulate critical thinking and debate.

    You can read on for information or get a condensed version of the details right here, including the sign up link. Hope you will consider joining in!

    Picture the last time you doodled on your notebook paper. We bet you were in a class, at a workshop, in a conference, or at a staff meeting. Whether you realize it or not that doodling was helping to keep you focused and even helping you remember what you were learning about.

    Sketchnotes help keep you and your students focused during lessons, workshops, etc. while helping you remember important information about the topic. Haven't heard of sketchnotes? No problem! We are starting from the beginning. Join us April 29th-May 24th to learn how to make those doodles even more meaningful and purposeful. During these four weeks you will complete a few simple, fun, engaging tasks a week to further your understanding of sketchnotes and sketchnoting. We will use a new tool called Wakelet and Twitter to help us with sharing our thoughts and ideas with you and each other. BUT if you aren't on Twitter, no big deal, you don't have to be. If you don't know what Wakelet is, no big deal, you don't need to . . . it's easy! Not an artist? You don't need to be!

    This unique professional development opportunity will give you the chance to learn not only what sketchnotes are, but how to use them in your classroom and in your professional life. Sign up here to participate. We will be using The Conference Companion. This book will be used to guide us in our #sketchEDnh journey. Hope you will consider joining us and connecting with other educators in the great state of NH!

    Your #sketchEDnh team,

    Nicole Cassamassino. Technology Integrator. Peter Woodbury Elementary School, NH.

    Craig Sheil. Technology Integrator. Bedford High School.

    Jessica Gilcreast. School Librarian. Bedford High School.

    NHSTE is proud to announce another ~

    Digital Learning Specialist RoundTable for Elementary Level PreK-5

    Registration is now open to NHSTE Basic members ~ this workshop will sell out ~ sign up now before all spaces are filled!

    What: Digital Learning Specialists RoundTable - Elementary K-5 
    Where: Richard Maghakian Memorial School, 22 Milford Street, Brookline, NH 03033 
    When: Wednesday, 31 May 2019

    This Digital Learning Specialist RoundTable for the elementary level (PreK-5ish) is being hosted by Jenny Lynch at the Richard Maghakian Memorial School in Brookline, NH for elementary school Technology Integration Teachers/Specialists on Friday, May 31st.  Part Learning Tour, part EdCamp, and part discussion group, the attendees set the discussion topics for the day and support each other with their challenges.

    We know that professional development is important for everyone. In many cases, technology integration teachers are solo in their own buildings or districts. This roundtable opportunity is for those technology integration teachers interested in having conversations about particular topics to improve instruction for staff and students in their own district. Topics/discussion will be tailored based on participant attendees thoughts. Time is included to view the "skills" block that happens each Friday at the school. "Skills time" is spent with the integrated arts team to teach the students "skills" they need for PBL. It was means of compromise when the school went full integration and removed the "computer special". Let’s get together to have thoughtful conversations to help move our schools forward.

    A light breakfast and lunch are included in the registration fee.  Attendees are encouraged to bring both their best practices and challenges.

    NHSTE is recruiting hosts in locations around the state, for RoundTables in 2019/2020 school year.  If you are interested in hosting a RoundTable event at your school, please contact, Cyndi Dunlap, NHSTE Professional Learning Chair at nhstePD@nhste.org.

    Registration is limited to 20 participants, so register ASAP to ensure a seat!  NHSTE NHSTE Premium members receive advance notice of this opportunity.

    Target Audience:

    Digital Learning Specialists (Technology Integration Teachers) at the elementary school level

    Agenda (proposed):

    8:30 to 8:45am      Welcome/Introductions & light breakfast items
