George Couros- The Innovator's Mindset
Carol Dweck’s work has focused on the ideas of “fixed” and “growth” mindset, yet educators will need to go a step further with these notions to create the learning opportunities and that our students and schools deserve. We need to focus not only what we know, but what we do with what we know. In this talk, George will discuss the idea and characteristics of “The Innovator’s Mindset” (as discussed in the book of the same title), and share powerful examples on why this is so crucial for all educators. George’s presentations are known to be emotional, humorous, all while pushing your thinking, and will definitely connect to your heart first, in a way that will last with you long after this keynote.

Historical Reanactments as an Assessment
Limited Capacity seats available

Bringing History Alive! (In this case, one of the early explorers of North America - Samuel de Champlain - and his first "armed" encounter with the Mohawk tribe of New York).
By going "deep" with the students in their learning about a historical topic (in this case, using close reading & accountable talk methodology), students gain a *clearer* understanding of the importance and gravitas of the topic. THEN, by having the students reenact the event being studied, the students will demonstrate critical thinking as they write their own script and "walk in the shoes" of the very people that they were studying.  When the students make a video of their reenactment, the engagement level for all students is enhanced.  Finally, the video serves as a key tool for the teacher to measure the understanding of the class.

Students need to collaborate, communicate, think critically and problem-solve to determine the location of the other classroom.  At the same time, they are making global connections and (you guessed it) having FUN!  Join me and my former students while we Skype with a Mystery classroom.  Help us determine their location, before they can determine ours!!!

* Three Things Students Should Have Before They Leave High School
In our world today, a resume and a cover letter aren’t going to support our students to create opportunities.  To adequately prepare students for the world that they live in, it is important that we use the opportunities that are in front of us and help students develop a network to connect with others, a digital portfolio that shows their learning and growth, as well as an About.Me page to bring all of these things together. In this presentation, we will look at what these could look like and how we could implement this at the K-12 level.

Often, colleagues refer to me as the "techie" of the group. However, I commonly have the same questions/difficulties when trying something new.

During the session, I will show a few of my most recent "discoveries" in Google, but then more importantly I want to guide the attendees through trying out something new for their classroom by "CLICKING" and learning by jumping two feet in! I will reference Alice Keeler's blog and a few other twitter accounts that I follow that are helpful to me.

The Global Read Aloud centers along the phrase, "One book to connect the world!" It was created in 2010 by Pernille Ripp, a 7th grade English Teacher in Wisconsin. Her vision was to promote literacy with students and connect with other classrooms on a global scale. Every October, teachers around the world in Kindergarten-12th grade “read aloud one of the selected books to students during a set 6-week period and during that time try to make as many global connections as possible.”

This session will focus on the background of the Global Read Aloud, exploring this year’s selected books, and learning how to connect with another class. You are probably already reading aloud to your students, why not make it a global experience!

We all have a digital footprint, as do our schools and organizations.    “Googling” ourselves makes this apparent whether we have had any say in it or not.  As individuals and as organizations, what can we do to actually shape this footprint?  With open sharing of our learning, a digital footprint can easily be developed for either an individual, school or organization.  This is not about branding as much as it is about modeling for our students that we are learners along with them.

Genius Hour, Passion Project or 20% time, doesn’t matter what you call it.  Students call it “fun”, “exciting”, “entertaining”, and “my time to learn about what I want”.  This is not a free for all time. Students organize their materials, there are expectations and they are responsible to share their “genius” with the class.  As a teacher, I find Genius Hour time to be extremely engaging for students.  It gives them voice and choice in their learning while practicing real-world skills: Communicating, collaborating, creating, reading, writing, questioning, and critical thinking.  In this session, students will share their Genius Hour experiences with you.

The Global Read Aloud centers along the phrase, "One book to connect the world!" It was created in 2010 by Pernille Ripp, a 7th grade English Teacher in Wisconsin. Her vision was to promote literacy with students and connect with other classrooms on a global scale. Every October, teachers around the world in Kindergarten-12th grade “read aloud one of the selected books to students during a set 6-week period and during that time try to make as many global connections as possible.”

This session will focus on the background of the Global Read Aloud, exploring this year’s selected books, and learning how to connect with another class. You are probably already reading aloud to your students, why not make it a global experience!
