SessionWorkshopPresenterPhotoWorkshop Description
Project based learning presentation AKA “The Design Project”Arnel AliwalasDescription:
Participants will be provided a step-by-step method to create a unit based on a design project using Project-based learning. This format can be used in all versions of shop classes, for example: woodshop – design a step stool that is modular, metal – design a trivet, electronics – design a secret switch circuit, drafting – design a maze using AutoCAD, STEM – design a robot to follow a line. During this interactive session, participants will design their own project in small groups and be provided with templates and resources. ADST teachers, new teachers, existing Tech ed teachers can formalize their unit planning using this method.
Book binding for the classroomJanine DickieDescription:
Take a look at the fun and accessible world of book binding! Learn how to design, sew, clamp, rivet, or patina your way to creating your own book. This workshop will show the basics of a low-cost, interdisciplinary art form, and perhaps inspire you to make some books with your students.
Projects, Tips & Ideas for your Wood ProgramChris Kuhn
Description:
This presentation is designed to provide you with some Projects, Tips and Ideas that you can take back and implement in your classroom after the BCTEA Conference. I graduated in 1985 as the W.R.F. Seal Award Recipient and was presented with the Outstanding Technology Education Award in 2009. This is my 6th Conference presentation and I am most willing to share more of the ideas that have made my Wood Technology Classroom run more efficiently and some of the Wood Projects that Male and Female students have really enjoyed creating.

Carpentry Stairs and RoofSheldon BruntDescription:
Participation based stair stringer and roof rafter workshop. Including calculations, lay out, cutting and installing. Fundamental trigonometry to the construction trades taught in a classroom relevant delivery method (particularly for teaching Carpentry).
Inventor and 3D printing in the classroomJim NiessenDescription:
Drafting level 1 and 2 using AutoCAD 2018, progressing to inventor 2018 and 3D printed projects. Some of the pitfalls and lessons I've learned along the way and hopefully an open discussion on how to improve what we are doing. I'll demonstrate setting up inventor for teaching and describe how we run three Ultimaker 3D printers, the materials, plate adhesion etc.
Creating video tutorials for the classroomMichael HolbrookDescription:
This workshop covers the basics and introduction to creating video resources using digital cameras or/your phone and a computer that can be viewed by your students and other teachers for either safety, project tutorials, demonstrations, etc.

We cover the basics of script preparation, audio capture, camera setups, and simple editing, and online sharing that makes your video enjoyable and easy to learn from.
Jr. Robotics for Middle School - Gr 5 to Gr 10Brian YuDescription:
Anyone can be successful in teaching robotics. Free lesson plans, YouTube videos and website(s) to help. Area covered: Computer programming, robot building, and playing games for learning. Using VEX-IQ Robotics. Hands on Demo. If you can open a PDF file, this is for you.

Bring your questions and share your ideas.
Elementary ADST
Heather ElliottDescription:
Elementary ADST - String Art Design build Activity. Using basic hand tools and simple instructions we will work through a design build activity. Picture book connections will be made to connect to cross curricular links.
WiFi, Cloud, Arduinos and NeoPixelsJason BrettDescription:
The ESP8266 provides a relatively simple way to connect your Arduino to WiFi. This enables the use of cloud services, such as Blynk, for monitoring data and remote control. It also allows for direct connections to phones, where the RemoteXY app makes it easy to design a graphical interface suitable for driving small robots or other devices.

Jason will also introduce the NeoPixel (WS2812B) LED, an RGB LED with a controller built right into the LED. NeoPixels allow you to string hundreds of LEDs and control them individually using just one pin on your microcontroller. NeoPixels will elevate you to the next level of blinkyness.... like the Blinky Fish Head https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y8OoVhl2tn4
Woodcarving - intro to woodcarving with your classesAllan ByresDescription:
This is a beginners carving session for those with little or no experience. The workshop will introduce you to styles of carving, tools and material required and get you started on how to make a low relief carving in your class and with your students. If there is time we will also look at carving a caricature style face face in the round.
ADST 8 Wood/ Electronics ProjectVince GabelSteve ClaassenDescription:
Wood shop projects: you, industry, and a bookJordan PerraultDescription:
Hosted by the Construction Foundation of BC, this is an interactive workshop where will share project ideas, explore how we can collaborate to strengthen wood shop programming and make a book (not a real book, that's Janine's workshop).

Share your favorite projects, brainstorm new ideas, and explore ways to make wood shop the place every student wants to be. Participants will leave with a pile of new ideas and a pencil (because who doesn't like a pencil?)

Workshop will focus on:
1. Creating a book of wood projects from BC, for BC, made with BC woods
2. Identifying what you need in your classroom: materials, tools, and teaching resources
3. Sharing successes: how do we encourage more students to get in the wood shop
4. Connecting school to what comes next (where does industry fit?)

If possible, participants should bring a picture or sketch of any project they'd like to share.

Note: we're actually making a book of projects for BC shop teachers. We are looking for people who would like to write content and test ideas. Reimbursement for time and materials is available. Find out more at surveymonkey.com/r/Wood_IDEAS

The Construction Foundation of BC supports shop classes across BC through initiatives such as Project Shop Class and Skills Ready. Find our more at constructionfoundation.ca
Getting Started with mBot40Alex McKillopDescription:
This hands-on session will provide a step by step introduction to robotics using the mBot. Starting from taking it out of the box and working up to using sensors to program autonomous behaviours; participants will use a block based coding language to complete these activities.
ADST for Intermediate TeachersChris Mills / Martin LimSteve ClaassenDescription:

Want to build a wooden Christmas craft with your students but don’t know where to start? Join us for this hands-on Christmas tree build. You will learn how to guide your students to measure accurately, use a hand saw and drill as you assemble a 30 cm wooden tree. Discussion topics include - How to make connections with your associate high school’s shop department to have them pre-cut the rough material lengths as well as safe tool practices. Your colleagues will be amazed with your skills when they see your finished tree!

Target audience - grade 5 - 7 teachers.
Exploring Code with Swift PlaygroundShelagh LimSteve ClaassenDescription:
Learn to Code with iPad (6-9). Coding is essential to help students thrive in a future driven by technology. When you teach coding, you inspire creativity and teach skills like critical thinking, problem solving and teamwork. Learn how you can engage middle school and junior high students in the world of coding with Swift Playgrounds and Everyone Can Code resources designed for teachers. So whether your students are first-time coders or interested in programming robots and drones, you’ll have all the tools you need to teach coding in your classroom. In this workshop you will experience coding in Swift Playgrounds, a revolutionary app for iPad that makes getting started with code fun and interactive; explore lesson plans and teacher guides designed to bring coding into grades 6-9 classrooms; engage student minds using Swift Playgrounds to interact and control robots and connected devices with code.
