Fee: $25.00. Lunch included.
Description:
Alan is an international leader in education technology, and the author of the New York Times bestselling book "Who Owns the Learning." This full day workshop for MNIB schools only is based on the book and a powerful new six step model of designing transformational learning experiences. If the answer is no to all six questions, chances are very good that the assignment has not leveraged the power of technology and is limited to a $1,000 pencil.

Did the assignment build capacity for critical thinking on the web? Did the assignment develop new lines of inquiry? Are there opportunities to broaden the perspective of the conversation with authentic audiences from around the world? Is there an opportunity for students to publish – across various media with capacity for continuous feedback? Is there an opportunity for students to create a contribution (purposeful work)? Does the assignment provide “best in the world” examples?

Fee: $30 includes lunch
Description:
The language differences in American Sign Language and spoken English require that instructors and interpreters employ various expansion and compression techniques to achieve message equivalency. Expansion techniques are used in order to make implicit information in the source language more explicit in the target language. If instructors/interpreters are unfamiliar with expansion techniques, the resulting work will demonstrate unnatural phrasing, incorrect grammatical structures, and errors in production. The goal of this workshop is to expose instructors/interpreters to various expansion techniques and apply (3-4) specific techniques as found in American Sign Language.

Description:
The state requires that anyone doing electrical work of any kind must be licensed. Anyone can apply and be registered as an “unlicensed electrician.” However, there are restrictions as to what they are allowed to do. The one that is attractive to schools is using the “unlicensed” person to do repair work only. They can do repairs or replacement of existing equipment as long as they do it under a contractor’s license. There is no limit to the number of people who can take the required 2 hour training.

Please make sure that you fill out the Unlicensed Electrician Application on the Department of Labor & Industry website at this link https://secure.doli.state.mn.us/license/initialapp.aspx . You will need your license number when you take the class.
