Proposal summary

Purpose & objective

At the end of the session, participants should have a better understanding of stations in a science classroom. There will be an emphasis of incorporation of a wide variety of technology tools including: flipgrid, quizizz, quizlet, edpuzzle, and goformative. These technology tools can work seamlessly with google classroom. Participants will gain an understanding of the research behind rotation stations, and an increase in student engagement and enhanced technology skills in the classroom. In my own classroom, I have used stations and have seen a positive impact on the engagement, purposeful talk, and collaboration that happens amongst students. They take ownership and responsibility for their learning and gain technology skills to prepare them for the world around them.

Outline

Teachers will receive an overview of what stations look like in a middle school science classroom. They will receive the framework that I have used in my own classroom, as well as "hacks" and "tips" for implementation. I will then give a variety of technology tools I have used in stations to enhance learning and engagement. The participants will receive device-based activities where they can rotate to different stations to experience what students will experience. The first half of the presentation will be the set-up, explanation, and background. The second half of the presentation will be audience participation.
