Which Technology is Right for YOU?
Nancy Caramanico (moderator); Brandon Lutz,
David Andrade, Rob Miller, Marianthe Williams and Patrick Fletcher
Should you buy laptops, iPads, Chromebooks,
Windows tablets or some other device for your teachers and students? Go BYO and
let them choose? What LMS and other digital tools will you invest in? In this
session, you will hear several school and district administrators sharing their
own stories about what purchasing choices they made -- and, more
importantly, how and why they made them.
Collaboration and Engagement in the Elementary Grades
Cathy Swan (moderator); Mitch Crasson and Karen
Pelekis, Clare Taylor, Bob Greenberg
We’ve invited several great
teachers to show us what elementary classrooms look like when instruction is
transformed with help from technology. They’ll share some of their favorite technologies
– from GPS and programming apps for iPads to stop-motion animation and
green-screen technology – and, more importantly, help us see how student
creativity, collaboration and engagement increases as a result of 21st century
approaches to teaching and learning.

Gwen Solomon (moderator); Mike St. Pierre, Brad
Currie, Chris Casal

methods might you use to connect to families and the broader community? See
examples and learn some new tips for telling your story through great visuals,
social media, websites, and other mobile and online tools.

why 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.
