    April 2016 Meeting

    This month’s Mobile Device Snapshot will be presented by Penny Curry and Lisa Dunn, Middle School Technology Turnkey, who will share how Wantagh UFSD is using Chromebook carts from Elementary through High School. The carts are utilized primarily in Social Studies and World Languages in the high school, and in Reading and ELA in the Middle School. Lisa will discuss her focus this year on professional development for middle school teachers to prepare them for a 1:1 rollout next year with touchscreen Chromebooks.

    The 12 Regional Information Centers in New York State are working collectively with the State Education Department on RICOne, a plan to better utilize student data systems to improve school operations and classroom instruction . RIC OneAPI supports the exchange of data between authorized education solutions via a common set of exchange formats; RIC OneSignOn links a person’s electronic identity across multiple identity management systems. Nassau BOCES CIT Assistant Directors Dr. Valerie D’Aguanno and Chris Reinertsen will provide an overview of the scope and projected timeline of this project. View the RICOne Overview for additional details.

    Later this year Amazon Education is launching a free new OER platform designed for districts and teachers to store, manage and share content. Educators will have access to the best content from districts across the country, as well as a huge library of Open Educational Resources. This platform will leverage Amazon’s unique scale and experience with ratings, review and recommendations. Ryan Lefton, Head of Strategic Partnerships, will join us for an exclusive sneak peak preview of Amazon Inspire and extend an offer for innovative district partners to be part of the Beta program.
