The presenters for this

of subject areas, including art, music, ESL, foreign language, math, and social
studies. What they share is a passion for incorporating technology into the
curriculum in ways that lead to engagement and motivation. You’ll hear about a
variety of powerful, project-based learning experiences that support Common

authentic opportunities for students to collaborate and learn.
Classroom: What's Next?
Jonathan Bergmann with Michael Gorman, R.J.
Gravel, and Brian Gervase
You already know
about the flipped classroom; you may very well be implementing it in your
school or district. Butwhy are
you doing it? What are you learning and where do you want to take flipping in
the future? Join Jon Bergmann and a few invited panelists for a lively
discussion – involving audience members as key contributors – about best
practices and how the flipped classroom is transforming teaching and learning.
Professional Development Tips
Chris Geocaris and Rico
D’Amore; Scott Meech; Phil Klamm and Kevin Schmitz
agree that sustained and effective professional development is crucial to a
successful technology program. In this session you’ll meet administrators and
technology leaders from three districts that are involved in one-to-one and/or
BYO initiatives. From all-staff institute days to video-based classes to
face-to-face “appy hours” that complement online learning experiences, you will
learn about the types of professional development needed to launch and sustain
such ambitious initiatives.
Approaching a Holistic Technology Integration Strategy
Daniel Rezac with Andy Kohl and Elizabeth Greene
Getting buy-in for technology integration is always a challenge. What is the essential element that brings everything together, and elevates the “tool time” discussions to something more meaningful, creative, and practical? We’ll explore curriculum review, digital writing, and media literacy, as we discuss an approach to engaging teachers in the integration of technology into every aspect of instructional design.
