Digital Writing Digital Kids
Common Core is more than a set of standards or new technology for taking online tests. It's an opportunity to engage students in powerful and meaningful learning through the use of digital tools. In this session we we'll examine the digital literacy demands of Common Core and discuss strategies for using these standards to incorporate blogging, digital composition, multimedia creation, and programming. Join us as we examine the "why" behind many of the digital tools entering our classrooms and walk way with a plan for using Common Core to engage our digital students in relevant learning.

No More Popsicle Sticks: The Case Against Random
Don't gather data from one student when you can gather it from EVERY student. The idea of tricking kids to listen in a 1:1 environment is no longer academically sound. So how do we find out what kids know? Learn to use two easy and free tools to gather data from every student, easily, regardless of platform. Have your teachers snapshot the entire class, instead of random drawings. Show your teachers how to grade less and give more feedback. Attendees will make quizzes and learn to analyze data in one of two free online tools that can revolutionize your school.

Be Your Community Social Media Superhero
The narratives of schools across the country are being told by people who have no connection to buildings. The use of social media meets families, community members, and decision makers in a place where they live daily. Find out how to maximize your school’s social media tools (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and more) in order to lead, inspire and inform all stakeholders. Create school accounts if you don’t have them and learn how to integrate your school’s brand, messaging and outreach. Social media is a new literacy and our schools' leaders have to model that literacy appropriately.
