CONFERENCE WORKSHOPS & DESCRIPTIONS

(Please contact Steve.Claassen@sd71.bc.ca if you are interested in presenting)
Workshops will continue to appear here as presenters are confirmed

WorkshopPresenterWorkshop Description
ADST and Design Thinking
Randy GreyWhen you look at the new Tech Ed curriculum that fits roughly on 2 pages, the impression is that Applied Design is very significant. It lists the same steps as the Design Thinking process. Tech Ed has traditionally done very well at teaching Applied Skills and using Technologies, but short on Design.

In this workshop we will share teaching resources that will help you deliver this component in your program.
We are not going to say it is easy, but if you want to deliver the curriculum attention does need to be paid towards the ministry's intention.

Please be willing to share your ideas and experiences within the session.



BCMMAG/Haas Desktop Mill in the classroom
Courtenay RimaldiCome and learn more about the British Columbia Metal Manufacturing Advisory Group (BCMMAG) and our endeavour to get the Haas CNC Desktop Mill into every school district, and help to train teachers. Learn about the possibilities of the Haas Desktop Mill in your classroom and other Haas education and grants that work together with their machines. A small machine, but a lot to learn for students in a compact size.

Drafting - The hands on class
Calvin Patterson
This presentation will focus on creating and engaging drafting class through hands on design based projects. I can also share resources to teachers new to teaching drafting. Bring ideas to share if you have them!

Making a Steamed, Laminated Fishing Net
Dayton FraserParticipants will see a streamlined version of how students create a steamed, bent lamination, fishing net. The presenter will demonstrate each step of the process with the hope that other teachers can recreate the process in their own shops. The presentation will include tips and ideas on how to get set up to make these nets so that students can make beautiful nets to be proud of. You will be shown different form designs, a simple steam box, and other project specific processes.

Non-Traditional Safety TestingRyan MacFaddenHave you ever completed your safety unit with an entire class just to have another student dropped on your doorstep? What about looking at the attendance page after your third bandsaw demonstration to see that students x,y and z were once again absent? ByteDeck is a Learning Managment System hosted on Canadian servers and part of a proposed solution to these safety concerns. This program offers the ability to grant students XP points, Achievment Badges and track their course progress online or from home. I would like to share with you how I am reinventing my safety unit, by placing parts of it online with this gamified system. Don't worry! Practical use of tools is still the core of any shop class, but even this has a 21st century twist. Come on in and find out more!

Raspberry Pi Pico -- My New Favorite Microcontroller!!
Jason Brett"The Raspberry Pi Foundation has recently designed and released a new microcontroller. Unlike the classic Raspberry Pi single-board computers, which run Linux and are more closely related to desktop computers, the Pico is a microcontroller more closely related to an Arduino... but with fifteen years of technological advancement!!

The Pico has huge increases in onboard memory and processing power, and is available for $9.00 (or spend $11 and get built-in WiFi, too!) That's $5.00 less than an off-brand Arduino Uno!

You can program the Pico in Python, or even using the Arduino IDE.

There are some limitations on current and voltage, as it is a 3.3V device, but that also makes it far more compatible with battery powered applications.

At least two applications for the Pico will be presented... a Pop Bottle Rocket Data Logger which records flight data including acceleration, elevation, temperature and time (with a servo output for controlling parachute release), as well as the ""Scoppy"" USB oscilloscope that turns any Android phone or tablet into a 500K sample/second scope.... over either USB or wifi.

If you've noticed that Arduinos are getting a bit old and a bit overpriced, you might have some RPi Pico boards in your future!"

Screen Time and Student Mental Health
Duncan McDonald
There are negative aspects of screen time and yet, screens are a symbol of modern-day, cutting edge, and social connection. There are negative effects of screen time and we as teachers need to start teaching digital hygiene to our students.
Skills Exploration Course
Randy Grey & ITASkills Exploration courses are being taught in many different districts around the province. The intention is to expose youth to the field of Trades. The ITA helps districts with the funding, as the delivery of these programs is more costly than traditional ADST shop programs.

The workshop will focus on some inexpensive ways to deliver Plumbing, Electrical and Carpentry, plus infuse several projects that students can take home.

The ITA will be partnering in this workshop to add the details around the funding they provide, plus the statistics associated with students being registered with the ITA.

Wood Pen Turning and Basic SharpeningPeter Orlandi"Watch a demonstration on making wood pens using a basic pen kit and a wood lathe. This demonstration can also include basic sharpening techniques such as:
A bench grinder using the Wolverine attachment
The Veritas honing guide with basic water stones
The Work Sharp abrasive sharpening system"

Woodwork & EpoxyKen LuteynIn this presentation Ken will share what was learned when working with epoxy in the woodshop. Wins and challenges will be shared (some are ongoing ). Different sources, possible uses, type of product to use, as well as some examples of student projects done with epoxy will be shared. Ken do not claim to be an expert but is willing to share what he has learned so far. The possibilities of working with epoxy are very fluid (pun intended). Come pick up some tips and tricks and share anything you may have learned about working with epoxy.

No TTOC Coverage Share Session
Brian Jackson
Various Presenters
This is a share session for Teachers to bring their best ideas of what to do when we don't get a Tech. Ed. certified TTOC in when we need coverage. Shop teacher's often find it difficult to find meaningful assignments that their classes can engage in when the TTOC can't turn on the power. By sharing documents we've developed, we can bolster up the activities we assign when our class coverage is in a "No-Power" scenario.

This share session will allow “Share participants” 5-10 minutes to share with the entire group. The success of this workshop relies on people sharing. A token of appreciation will be give to those that share.

Share participants - Please bring an example, handouts, a USB drive, links to a website, PowerPoint or video to show your project(s)/curriculum. Please contact Steve Claassen to sign up prior.

Woodwork ShareVarious PresentersWoodwork is the most popular taught ADST course in BC schools. However, it is not necessarily the traditional course it once was with new technologies being purchased and used by teachers. Participants will showcase different projects, a new technique or piece of equipment that is new into the woodshop recently. This share session will allow “Share participants” 5-10 minutes to share with the entire group. The success of this workshop relies on people sharing. A token of appreciation will be give to those that share.

Share participants - Please bring an example, handouts, links to a website, PowerPoint or video to show your project. Please contact Steve Claassen to sign up prior.
