The Session From the Black Lagoon
Limited Capacity full

Educators rarely toot their own horns, yet we are often the best experts at our craft. We all have so many tips and tricks that we can share if only given the time to communicate and collaborate. In this “no topic session” your learning experience will be facilitated following the Edcamp.org model for teacher learning. We will assess the greatest needs and greatest expertise in the room and learn together. It may sound odd at first, but through sessions like this teachers have learned things they didn’t know they needed as they heard from their professional peers. Want a unique conference session, then join this “un presentation” and learn how you can facilitate this kind of learning experience with your students and school peers. I look forward to the wisdom and learning you will bring!

Keynote - Kerry Gallagher - This Is Your Brain On Technology
Limited Capacity seats available

Parents and teachers are often at odds with the children they care about most. There are misunderstandings about how to use our ubiquitous technology and how to properly balance quality face-to-face time with necessary screen time. If we want students to be able to stay focused at school and at home while using devices that provide constant temptation and distraction, we must teach them about the research behind multitasking. Learn about the latest findings on how the brain is affected when we use screen technology, and how we can use this information to empower our students to be more focused, creative, and engaged while they are learning. Find out what students say when they learn this way and how they feel about school when technology is a no longer a distraction, but rather a powerful learning tool.
