This strand brings educators together to experience and explore digital strategies and resources appropriate for students in grades 3–6 using collaboration, communication, and choice to engage students in learning and knowledge creation. Elementary teachers will connect with colleagues in building a technology-rich classroom culture and infusing AVID methodologies both digitally and face to face. This strand is designed to support experienced AVID Elementary teachers and instructional support staff in blending WICOR® (Writing, Inquiry, Collaboration, Organization, and Reading) with digital strategies to prepare students with the skills they need to be college- and career-ready. Participants are supported during the process with best-practice pedagogy, resources, and guidance on how to use technology to facilitate student learning and engagement.
This strand requires all participants to have their own device or laptop that can connect to the internet. Participants must bring an acceptable device, power cord, and earbuds/headphones with them to the strand. If a district-issued device is being used, be sure to log in to the device on the district network before attending. Device software and web browser need to be up to date.
