Accelerating Student Engagement through Integrated Computer Science
Presented by Karen Larson
Data becomes real as students engage in computer science. Their discoveries as they build robots, develop code, and research the ethical impact of computer science require the gathering of data and the need to make sense of it. For underrepresented students, exploring topics that impact and interest them is one way of providing opportunities to have a voice in their learning and it is that voice that keeps students engaged and encourages them to go deeper. In this session, we will play with data, computer science and design thinking that can be integrated into any subject area.

Equitable Social Emotional Supports for Students
Presented by Joanne Vaars, Ed.D.
What role does Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) play in your Multi-Tiered System of Supports? SEL must be an explicitly taught throughline of the school's climate designed for Administrators, Staff, Students, and Families. As returning to campus has demonstrated, we must address Social-Emotional Needs using pro-active integration to support an effective educational community. Integrating the work of Christopher Emdin and the work of the National Equity Project, the presenter discusses the ideas of individual potential and agnosia (the inability to recognize objects, ideas or familiar human characteristics through the senses). The presenter will define and describe agnosia and how it impacts the individual academic success of students (the rainbows) in the educational system.

Science Practices Across Cultures

Presented by The Exploratorium
People in cultures spanning continents and millennia have used the practices of science to make sense of their world. In this workshop, we’ll explore how these practices span across cultures, deconstruct our ideas and values about who and what counts as science, and reflect on how these types of explorations can support students in feeling a sense of belonging both in the classroom and in science itself.

Ways 2 Equity Playbook Overview: A Navigational Tool for School Equity
Presented by Dr. Angela Birts
Whenever you're starting work in equity, you say, "Where do I start?" "I don't know where to start." "What tools are out there?" The Ways 2 Equity Playbook offers individualized on-ramps for different uses—student groups, school sites, school districts—to be used as a reflection guide, not a checklist. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions about the navigational tool, learn from the Playbook contributor(s), and network with colleagues regarding their student equity journey.

Personalized Learning in the Post-Pandemic Classroom

Presented by Stepan Mekhitarian

In this session, we will explore how to prepare for post-pandemic instruction using takeaways from our unprecedented experience with distance learning. We will look at how effective instructional programs build on best practices from classroom instruction and critical skills learned from the distance learning experience to create a blended learning environment that benefits from the best of both worlds. Participants will understand how a blended learning approach is ideal for the post-pandemic classroom and how it can foster collaborative learning, constructivist thinking, and individualized differentiation. We will also examine effective practices from Glendale Unified School District’s experience, including their instructional technology leader initiative, technology support efforts, and formative data reimagining.

About the My Name, My Identity CampaignWhat does your name mean to you? We receive our names from beloved family members or special people who are close to our family. We may be named after a family member, a saint, or a positive personality characteristic. Our name may recall an event, tell where the stars were at our birth, or state an aspiration of our future.
Since each of us is unique, so is our name. Because our name is tied to our identity, we would not wish to have our names changed or mispronounced. When our name is changed or unintentionally mispronounced, it is a misrepresentation of who we are -- because our name represents our identity.
As our world becomes increasingly connected, cross-cultural communication increases. We interact with more people from diverse backgrounds and experiences, many with different languages and ethnicities. Having the ability to effectively communicate with others who are different from ourselves opens up possibilities for deeper understanding and friendship based on mutual respect. It is also an essential skill in the 21st century.
School is a community, which prepares our students to succeed in the global world. To be an effective member of this global world, we can model respect for each other in the school community by learning about each other’s stories, our unique names, and their proper pronunciations.
Objectives of this Campaign
  1. Bring awareness to the importance of respecting one’s name and identity in schools as measured by the number of community members making a pledge to pronounce students’ names correctly
  2. Build a respectful and caring culture in school communities that values diversity as measured by my name stories posted on social media
