But Luther also loved choral singing, and a robust repertoire of choral music developed contemporaneously with the chorales. The Reformed tradition is known for its treasury of metrical psalmody, which also gave rise to a rich legacy of choral works. But what exactly are these choral traditions? What are their musical, textual, and liturgical parameters? How did they influence each other? Using repertoire from the new Augsburg Chorale Book and its sister volumes, this session will answer these questions and highlight the various streams of Lutheran and Reformed choral music, from the sixteenth century to the present day. Priceless Treasures: Hymns and Songs in Parish Life - Wayne Wold  In addition to presenting ideas about using hymns creatively in worship, Wold will discuss other areas of parish life—rehearsals, meetings, education, fellowship and outreach events, publications and public relations, and more—where hymns and hymn-singing can be enriching and meaningful tools for spiritual formation, community-building, and memory-making. Hymn Festival: Seasons of the Son A program of readings, prayers, and hymns/songs from many times and places that explore and celebrate the richness of the Church Year.

The Joy of Coding: Developing Problem Solving, Critical and Logical Thinking Skills  with Coding (Grades 3-12) NEW Workshop Presented by Joy Burroughs Outstanding Educator and International Presenter Specifically Designed for Classroom Instructors, Computer Science Instructors and Technology Integration Specialists serving grades 3 -12: ​ The latest, most useful websites, apps and technology resources for facilitating coding and enhancing student achievement   Low-cost or no-cost solutions to code with grades 3 -12 students in various learning environments  Real-world coding applications that will not only engage students  but also helps educators to focus on inspiring students to be builders – not just consumers - of technology through coding activities and challenges. It’s all about using technology and changing the world through teamwork, creativity, and, of course, code.  Practical, innovative ways to involve students in coding activities that incorporate problem solving, critical thinking, creativity, collaboration, and much, much more!  Receive an extensive coding resource handbook packed full of timesaving ideas, tools, tips, and proven strategies all designed to help students to not only develop problem solving, critical thinking, creativity, collaboration skills but also important coding skills. No prior training is needed for you to be a facilitator of coding. Whether you are tech timid or tech savvy, you will find an abundance of resources. I will help you sort through the wealth of resources and highlight for you the best and most effective ones to be a facilitator of coding to students.  Key Benefits of Attending Articulate why Coding is the “New Literacy” How the implementation of coding not only promotes critical thinking, creativity, problem solving but also communication and collaboration. Stimulates learners to become self directed. Increases math concepts such as reasoning, spatial awareness and sequencing. Explore how coding develops the students self-confidence. Become familiar with the  availability of no cost to low cost online and offline resources to facilitate coding. Digital communication to will be demonstrated to enhance instruction ie. Google Classroom, Schoology, Plickers, Doc Hub, Symbaloo, Google Doc. Post It Plus and more. Technology is everywhere and it’s not going anywhere. Science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), especially when integrated with other disciplines, are the skills of the future. We need to equip students with the critical skills they need to navigate the world we live in today and thrive in the future. It’s important for youth to learn to code for a few reasons: • Coding is a superpower. Learning to code let’s students build – not just consume the technology around them like video games, websites, robots and more. • Coding helps students develop new ways of thinking. Learning to code helps students develop other crucial and transferable skills – like computational thinking – allowing them to tackle problems, outside the realm of coding, in new and innovative ways. • Coding helps students understand the world around them better. If we teach biology and mathematics in order to understand the world around them, then knowing the basics of how computers communicate and how to engage with them should be a given. • Coding can help change the world. Empower students to use technology as a creative tool to build solutions for problems or everyday challenges people face. • Coding is fun! Students experience the satisfaction and thrill of building something. The introduction and teaching of coding has been gaining interest and generating buzz the last two years.  This seminar is designed to put you in the coding seat and work the projects that you can implement the very next day. As a classroom instructor, myself, it is always my aim to support my colleagues.  Practical strategies for Computer Science teachers and tech specialists in these roles classroom facilitators will be infused to assist, even the novice, attempt coding for the first time.    I have designed this seminar specifically to offer resources for the Classroom Instructor, Computer Science Instructors and Technology Integration Specialists on how to facilitate coding in grades 3 -12. Whether you are tech timid or tech savvy, you will find an abundance of resources. I will help you sort through the wealth of resources and highlight for you the best and most effective ones to facilitate coding to students in grades 3 -12. We will look at ways to design lessons and projects to teach and infuse coding into everyday curricula.  Bring your devices! We will be working through many of the projects and you will leave with not only the inspiration, but also complete projects and lessons that you can use with students immediately. There is not just one way to teach coding. I will help you get started and give you the tools and resources you need to move your students onward.   I look forward to meeting you at the seminar.  The day promises to be a day filled with practical activities, ideas, tips and resources that will empower you to infuse coding and other apps for your classroom!
