111 - A New Vision For Youth and Young Adult Ministry

Is it time for a new vision for ministry with youth and young adults? Aligning Our Vision of Youth and Young Adult Ministries with Christus Vivit

Pope Francis, the Synod Fathers, and thousands of young people, have been actively engage in a dialoguing about and reflecting upon the pastoral ministry with the young church. In addition to the various synod documents and the new papal exhortation, Christus Vivit, we see vision for ministry with youth and young adults emerging. How does your vision of youth or young adult ministry align with Christus Vivit? With the growing numbers of young people becoming disaffiliated with religion, it is an important time to examine how our vision and practice of youth and young adult ministry needs to change so that we can turn this tide. This workshop will explore how our individual, as well as, our national visions could be aligned with what was learned in the synodal process and the insights gained from Pope Francis’s exhortation, Christus Vivit.

131 - Formación de Catequistas por Internet

Formar catequistas es un desafío en todas las parroquias. Programar sesiones que son convenientes es a menudo uno de los mayores obstáculos. Cada vez más y más oportunidades de formación flexible están siendo disponibles a través de cursos por internet, pero muchos catequistas y líderes catequéticos de parroquias no se sienten cpaces de participar. En esta sesión presentaremos el Sistema de Manejamiento de Aprendizaje de ADLA, llamado; Moodle, y demostraremos cómo la formación de catequistas por internet/ en línea no solamente puede alimentar la comunidad, pero proporciona un recurso valioso para apoyar tanto la formación inicial como la continua.

Catholic Schools, especially in Los Angeles, have incredible assets known as the "four knowledge bases" (W. Nguyen, B. 2018). Leading this effort for global competency nation-wide in Catholic PS-12 schools, students at one ADLA school are already deeply rethinking their own learning to address the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). How are they doing this? Why is there such relevance and urgency? Can other Catholic schools and faith formation programs follow?

Rethink Catholic education for the future! Align faith-filled learning with the 2030 SDGs through applied research and technology!

This self guided tour of Mission San Fernando for about an hour after lunch, our goal is to accommodate visitors without creating a disruption to the students participating in the class.

For the past nine years we've been blessed to bring out master iconographer, Nicholas Markell, to present a one-week workshop in the process of writing (painting) Holy Icons. This year our classes take place at the San Fernando Pastoral Center from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm, August 5th - 9th. The instructor covers all phases of the process, from transferring the pattern to the icon panel, to applying 24K gold leaf for the halo, painting the image with egg emulsion and natural pigments, and anointing the icon with oil. There are demonstrations and discussions about the spirituality behind each step of the process. Our class size is limited to about 20 students. The cost of the workshop is $550.00 which includes all instruction, materials and lunches. This year we are writing an icon of Our Lady of Tenderness.

We are called to minister the bereaved in thier times of need. The Church calls each member of Christ’s Body-priest, deacon, layperson-to participate in the ministry of consolation: to care for the dying, to pray for the dead, to comfort those who mourn. Learning about the Christian Funerals and how to help the bereaved can be a fulfilling ministry. Walking the journey with the ones who have lost a loved one to death, is a true blessing and a wonderful way to see God. 
Come and learn about this ministry as you also learn about an online tool that can be used as a refresher course for your ministers or as a starting place for new ministers!
Come, accompany and be an instrument of God's consolation.

There is so much distraction and things competing for our attention, how can we make what we are teaching and more importantly what our students are learning stick. There is a lot of talk these days about brain-based learning. What really is the science behind learning? How can we make our learning about faith stick? What does it mean to have “sticky” faith? This workshop will answer these questions and help participants apply brain-based learning principles to learning experiences about faith so that we can make our Catholic faith “sticky.” With the growing numbers of young people becoming disaffiliated with religion, it is an important time to examine our current formation practices so that we can reverse this trend.

156 - Teachers Using Technology To Reach The Digital Native: A Panel Discussion

Kids in the classroom today want to be engaged using technology. After all for these kids, they've never lived in a world without the internet or smartphones. Studies have shown that about 10% of students surveyed about how they learn report that traditional lecture style works. They don't see technological tools as anything other than communication portals. It is simply how they communicate! Still there are many teachers and catechist who struggle with understanding how important it is to meet students where they are. In this session you will hear from leaders from Catholic organizations that are employing the use of digital tools and they will share why it's time to learn how to engage students using digital tools. You will hear about resources that will help you design a plan for implementing technology as a part of your lesson plans. Moderator: Sherry Hayes-Peirce Panelist: Alessandro Di Santo, Co-Founder Hallow App; Margaret Matjasevic, Executive Director NCCL; Andrea Chavez-Kopp Director of Formation and Digital Evangelization NCEA

Buck Institute for Education's Project Based Learning ("PBL") 101 is the premier, industry-leading, foundational educational training for teachers and schools interested in PBL. This session will be an introduction, overview, and preview of the full 3-day workshop (which will be made available to ADLA teachers and administrators next year.)

PBL 101 is based on tried-and-true strategies for developing learning experiences for educators that lead to sustained changes in practice.
Using a model of Gold Standard Project Based Learning, the full workshop models the project design process. It provides participants with the knowledge and skills needed to design, assess, and manage a rigorous, standards-based project.

Prior to attending the workshop, the presenter had doubts about the full effectiveness and potential for rigor of PBL writ large across a course or school. This workshop will assuage those sorts of fears and concerns and excite educators about the real possibilities for truly engaging, meaningful, large-scale projects within an organized system that can work for all educators.

Did you know that when you buy a STAR product you also purchase a massive amount of resources that can help you as teacher improve your students’ scores? In this workshop we will look at resources that come included in STAR including the new Renaissance Planner that was just released this prior school year. These free resources from Renassance and other vendors make planning easy! We will also look at the reading and math dashboards along with other resources you can use to help raise your STAR scores.

210 - Teachers Using Technology To Reach The Digital Native: A Panel Discussion

Kids in the classroom today want to be engaged using technology. After all for these kids, they've never lived in a world without the internet or smartphones. Studies have shown that about 10% of students surveyed about how they learn report that traditional lecture style works. They don't see technological tools as anything other than communication portals. It is simply how they communicate! Still there are many teachers and catechist who struggle with understanding how important it is to meet students where they are. In this session you will hear from leaders from Catholic organizations that are employing the use of digital tools and they will share why it's time to learn how to engage students using digital tools. You will hear about resources that will help you design a plan for implementing technology as a part of your lesson plans.

Buck Institute for Education's Project Based Learning ("PBL") 101 is the premier, industry-leading, foundational educational training for teachers and schools interested in PBL. This session will be an introduction, overview, and preview of the full 3-day workshop (which will be made available to ADLA teachers and administrators next year.)

PBL 101 is based on tried-and-true strategies for developing learning experiences for educators that lead to sustained changes in practice.
Using a model of Gold Standard Project Based Learning, the full workshop models the project design process. It provides participants with the knowledge and skills needed to design, assess, and manage a rigorous, standards-based project.

Prior to attending the workshop, the presenter had doubts about the full effectiveness and potential for rigor of PBL writ large across a course or school. This workshop will assuage those sorts of fears and concerns and excite educators about the real possibilities for truly engaging, meaningful, large-scale projects within an organized system that can work for all educators.

* - Iconography Gallery Viewing

This self guided tour of Mission San Fernando for about an hour after lunch, our goal is to accommodate visitors without creating a disruption to the students participating in the class.

For the past nine years we've been blessed to bring out master iconographer, Nicholas Markell, to present a one-week workshop in the process of writing (painting) Holy Icons. This year our classes take place at the San Fernando Pastoral Center from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm, August 5th - 9th. The instructor covers all phases of the process, from transferring the pattern to the icon panel, to applying 24K gold leaf for the halo, painting the image with egg emulsion and natural pigments, and anointing the icon with oil. There are demonstrations and discussions about the spirituality behind each step of the process. Our class size is limited to about 20 students. The cost of the workshop is $550.00 which includes all instruction, materials and lunches. This year we are writing an icon of Our Lady of Tenderness.

Forming catechists is a challenge in every parish.  Scheduling sessions that are convenient is often one of the greatest obstacles.  More and more opportunties for flexible formation opportunites are becoming available through online courses yet many catechists and parish catechetical leaders are reticent to jump in.  In this session we will introduce the ADLA Learning Management System, Moodle, and demonstrate how online catechist formation can not only nurture community but provide a valuable resource to support both initial and ongoing formation.  Bring your devices and join us as we navigate a Ministry Formation Center in Moodle.

With an ever-increasing number of social channels – and a steady stream of content flooding them – how can schools and parishes use social media to engage followers and enhance mission rather than simply communicate basic information such as schedules and reminders?  And with people yearning for “good news stories,” which schools and parish communities often have an abundance of, how can social media become a resource and driver of that desired content?  Focused exclusively on leveraging social media channels for greater engagement, this presentation details best practices and highlights tools for curating and sharing top content generated about schools or parishes.

We live in a noisy world in which young people are constantly bombarded with messages of all kinds: a 24 hour news cycle, social media platforms, and a vast array of digital entertainment.
