Introduction to Grant Writing

STEM in Action
Kris Rodgers, Ed.D.
This session provides a meaningful learning experience as it examines what STEM looks like in the elementary school classroom. Participants will explore and learn how to create engaging, hands-on STEM activities while examining the progression of the Florida Science Standards for K-5. Participants will have an opportunity to develop a lesson or two to take back to their classroom.

Advanced Grant Writing
Dana Fredebaugh, Ph.D., Nova Southeastern University
This workshop is designed for educators with some prior experience with grant proposal writing and/or implementing a grant-funded project. There will be a focus on the purpose, evaluation, and budget sections of the proposal. Participants are encouraged to bring a RFP with them, so that discussions can be focused on actual grants of interest to them.

Educators Fall Summit
Florida ASCD, Microsoft, and Nova Southeastern University
Join us to explore bigger ideas and approaches to integrating technology into the classroom. Start your morning off with a networking breakfast that gives you the opportunity to connect with other educators and learn how they are using technology in the classroom. Get energized with our keynote speaker that will have you motivated and ready to take your instruction to the next level. Engage in workshops that will present you with opportunities to explore STEM and Simulation Learning in the classroom. Learn the latest neurological research with concrete data explaining how media and technology are affecting the brain. Enter raffles to win technology for the classroom from Microsoft and other prizes from community vendors. Wrap-up your learning with lunch and learn about Microsoft in Education.

Microsoft: Sway-Digital Storytelling
Sway is an intelligent digital storytelling app from Office that is great for project or problem-based learning. Teachers can create interactive web-based lessons, assignments, project recaps, newsletters, and more—right from a phone, tablet, or browser. Students can collaborate and use Sway to create engaging reports, assignments, projects, study materials, and portfolios. Sways are easy to share with the class or the world and look great on any screen.

Sanford Harmony and Inspire: Social Emotional Learning and Professional Development Resources
J. Rick Roach, M.Ed., Sanford Harmony
Sanford Harmony is a Social Emotional Learning program focused on relationship building through stories, games and activities. In this interactive workshop, participants will have access to these materials and be able to integrate them into their classroom while creating a positive school climate, decrease obstacles to school safety and increased academic success. Sanford Inspire provides teachers with access to online professional development. At the conclusion of this training, participants will receive access to both Harmony tool-kits and Inspire modules.
