Keynote with [email protected]
The ImagineYOU creative space is a youth leader driven initiative that offers
access to photography, animation, web-page design, and music recording with
professional grade equipment. Besides access to the equipment, teens are assisted
by near-peer mentors who have connections to the artistic community in Rochester
New York. Teens are encouraged to pursue higher education and to develop their
talents for creative & professional outcomes.
10:00 - 12:00 Digital Literacy with Project Look Sharp
Project Look Sharp is a media literacy initiative of Ithaca College that develops
and provides lesson plans, media materials, training, and support for the effective
integration of media literacy with critical thinking into classroom curricula at
all education levels, including integration with the new common core standards.
Project Look Sharp Founder and Executive Director, Cindy Schiebe, will join us to
introduce the theory and practice of media/digital literacy integration throughout
the curriculum, emphasizing the development of critical thinking and analysis
skills.

Breakout Sessions - pick one
•
Digital Audio: Maximize Your Existing Equipment
When it comes to audio recording, the quality of the microphone being used
makes a huge difference. Trying to work with massive mixer boards and the
confusion of inputs and outputs makes using the existing microphones in your
district a challenge. In this session, learn how you can use the Blue Icicle to
easily connect any standard microphone directly to a computer via USB. Go
hands on with the tool to learn how it works, and then take it back to school to
create your next student audio project.
•
Graphic Tablets: Drawing Digitally
Come explore the many options for capturing student drawing digitally. This
session will look at different stylus options for drawing on an iPad or Android
tablet as well as standalone graphics tablets to connect to computers. Go hands
on with an Adesso pen tablet to learn how it can be used to draw directly into
graphics software like Photoshop or GIMP (open source and free) and then take
it back to your school to get students drawing digitally.
•
All-in-One Video: Stop Motion Made Easy
Stop motion video is a fun and exciting way to explore movie making, but
capturing all of the still frames and then stitching them together can be a
hassle. With a high quality tripod mount, you can easily capture, edit, and
produce a stop motion video directly on an iPad or Android tablet. Use the
Glide Gear adjustable tablet mount (fits iPad and iPad Mini sized tablets) in
this session and then take it back to your school and get students creating.
