At the Intersection of Digital Citizenship and My Curriculum
Limited Capacity seats available

We know that digital citizenship is important, but how does it fit into our curriculum? Our school community? Do you feel comfortable tackling this issue with your students or their parents? Have you considered what your role is in teaching how to be a good member of the digital world?

This discussion will explore what digital citizenship is by examining actual social media posts to see when to respond and how best to react to what is happening online. While it might be uncomfortable, this frank look at what our students are doing online will give us some guidance on how to teach digital citizenship in a meaningful way.

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!

A Student's Perspective on Failure
Limited Capacity seats available

I have learned the ins and outs of failure throughout my last 4 years of high school. Within those 4 years I have networked with some of the most known producers in movie making and greatest minds in the world of innovation. I also started a non-profit with the first school built in Ghana, and have paved a smooth path to my future endeavors. Now that I know my “WHY” I can start on my long term goal of changing the face of education. This can be done by allowing students to explore what they love and failing the proper way. In my session I will teach participants what they need to do in order to implement an innovation curriculum within your classroom (and give you valuable insight as to what a high schooler really thinks).

Compassion, Resilience, Learning and Teaching

This session will focus on Trauma/Adversity and how ongoing and complex trauma and adversity impact the brain’s architecture. This impact causes behaviors that look defiant, disinterested, unfocused and oppositional. We know that all behavior is communication and participants will gain an understanding of the kinds of strategies that can prime the brain for leaning. In addition, strategies will be demonstrated and shared that help youth and adults regulate their emotions. As we learn more and more about our brain, we too, learn more and more about how to build resiliency through these strategies that can be embedded on a daily basis in our classrooms and other settings.

Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) are free courses that can be used to provide supplemental or stand-alone educational experiences.

"World of Spies" is a MOOC that can be used with students in grades 6-12 and adapted to use with younger students in a classroom setting.
