    Presented by NYSCATE: Ideamapper web. - Empower Students to Be Better Writers

    Empowering NYS Educators: Helping Students Organize Their Thoughts and Become Better Writers

    This session will dive into an evidence-based practice for building writing skills - mind mapping. This technique involved brainstorming, organizing ideas, creating outlines and writing to produce well-structured documents. It can be used with any age learner and is ideal for independent use by students in upper elementary school through college. A great practice for students who learn differently, or who have English as a second language. This interactive presentation will prepare participants to integrate mind mapping into their daily lessons for all subject areas. We will embrace NYS CS & DF standards as a launching pad for a collaborative "mind map", where we will brainstorm ideas and resources to help educators embrace these new standards within the curriculum.

    KEYNOTE: JOHN SPENCER "How Will We Respond to the AI Revolution?"
