TLTS: Turnitin - The Writing Cycle and General Chemistry Lab Reports
The Turnitin Suite is an assessment tool that improves student writing through the writing cycle which is composed of Originality Check, PeerMark, and GradeMark. Originality Check ensures that student work is original while at the same time fostering an environment for learning how to properly cite work. PeerMark engages students in the writing process by providing structured, anonymous feedback from other students. GradeMark saves time and improves feedback through online grading where standard and customized marks appear directly on the student’s paper as well as customized rubrics. This presentation will be an introduction to Turnitin as well as a demonstration of how it is used in the general chemistry lab. Presented by Lafayette Eaton, St. John Fisher College.
TLTS: Universal Access to Mobile Technology
Students arrive on campus with multiple types of technology, including laptops, mobile phones, tablets, and e-readers. All of these technologies can be leveraged to support many of the tasks that are required for students to successfully participate in the college environment. For all students there are many free applications and resources available for the various platforms, yet they often are not aware of their availability. For students with disabilities this is also true. In this workshop, participants will be introduced to the concept of universal design for learning. A variety of applications will be demonstrated that support learning for all students. Presented by Lynn Gitlow and Dan Williams, Ithaca College.
2013 Threat Predictions with McAfee
Location: Klingenstein Lounge
Predicting future threats can be a hit-or-miss exercise for a security research organization. Certainly it is interesting to put on our wizard hats and prognosticate about what may happen in the coming months, but how much do threats really change each year? The trends within the threats landscape seem at times akin to predicting weather patterns or stock prices. We know they will go up and they will go down. But when and why? These questions are hard to answer in the information security world, especially as we get very little insight into the minds and intents of the attackers. Sometimes we have to look at the numbers at the macro and micro levels and / simply acknowledge them. McAfee Labs researchers recently debated the leading threats for the coming year. We foresee an increase in or the introduction of the following threats in 2013: Mobile worms on victims’ machines that buy malicious apps and steal via tap-and-pay NFC, Malware that blocks security updates to mobile phone.

Exploring Insight 360 & Integrating iPads or BYOD with Common Core Assessment
Location: Taughannock Falls Meeting Room
This session will explore iPad and BYOD integration in the classroom and how it coexists with current educational technology. The session will explain Insight 360 as a classroom instructional solution that measures student performance based on Common Core Standards, and gives teachers feedback on each individual student and allows them to respond to students in real time, bringing meaning to differentiated learning. The session will show the robust, definite data teachers receive from Insight 360 that helps to foster engagement and accountability on individualized instruction, using iPads as an instructional tool in the classroom. We will show how it works with any content, on any platform, in any format, so teachers are not recreating what they already have, instead using it and enhancing it. We will show how to seamlessly integrate the products already in the classroom, such as interactive whiteboards, and document cameras, and will provide a clear path for a 1:1 environment. Presented by Pro AV Systems.
Face-to-Face Connections: Your guide to an exceptional interview
Location: Cayuga Lake Meeting Room
You made it! You separated yourself from the piles of resumes and applications on the hiring manager’s desk to land an interview. But your job — which is getting the job — is far from over.

Even IT professionals with years of experience and tons of talent can stumble when face-to-face with an interviewer. Yes, the interview is a big deal, but there is no need to be nervous. Modis is here to help you succeed and connect with the job you want. We’ve put together our most valuable tips and strategies. They’re based off of decades of experience helping IT professionals just like you turn interviews into offers. Are you ready to close the deal and get the job? Good, let’s get started. Presented by MODIS.
Location: Six Mile Creek Meeting Room
It can be challenging for IT administrators to efficiently deliver critical educational content over the Internet while also contending with employee and student use of wasteful and potentially dangerous applications. Critical applications need bandwidth prioritization while undesirable applications need to be throttled or blocked. Older stateful packet inspection firewalls, used in many organizations today, are not up to the task of protecting your organization. Scanning every byte of every packet of all network traffic, Dell SonicWALL Next Generation Firewalls provide complete Application Intelligence and Control, regardless of port or protocol, by determining exactly what applications are being used and who is using them. IT administrators can easily create usage policies based on categories like P2P apps, social media or gaming, individual applications, and users and groups. Come and see how Dell SonicWALL puts network control back in your hands. Presented by Dell.
