Keynote: Transformational Teaching and Learning with Technology
In our quest to provide students with rich learning environments, we often strive to find creative ways to further engage our students. In some cases, this may involve the use of technology to a variety of degrees. Since technology has a ubiquitous influence in the everyday lives of our students, one of our biggest challenges is to identify ways in which we can leverage it for increased student learning. This keynote will examine a variety of methodologies and strategies for effectively implementing and integrating technology into the curriculum. We will also look at ways in we can leverage the use of technology to increase student engagement as well as foster environments for equity.

Information Literacy, Media Literacy, and Google Search
We have an unprecedented level of accessibility to information. In many cases our access to information can occur across a myriad of technological devices including a computer, a tablet device, and a smartphone. Given the mass quantities of information available, it is vital for us to develop strategies for not only finding what we need, but also being able to effectively filter out what we don’t need. Most students, and many teachers, are not as effective at searching for and finding truly meaningful and useful information as they could be. This session will focus on identifying appropriate strategies for Information Literacy, Media Literacy, and why these skill sets are critical for our students and ourselves. In addition, we will identify appropriate methodologies for applying critical thinking skills to evaluate content.

So we’ve designed a program that lets anyone learn, write, and teach code.

A Student's Perspective on Failure
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 well 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 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 this session I will go over what teachers can do to implement innovative curriculum within your classroom. This will include why (and how) we need to network, how to create a two week "ROTH-IRA" model to innovate, and empower students to identify problems, collaborate with mentors, and solve real world problems.

Technology in Primary Grades K-2
Integrating technology in education helps students stay engaged. Most students today have been using mobile devices like tablets and smartphones to play and learn since they could crawl. So, it only seems logical to align today's classrooms with the way that your students want and are used to learning.  This presentation will explore how to incorporate technology into you classrooms.  We will be learning how to use Sumdog, Readworks, E-mail (for students), google slides, ABCmouse, and Kahoot in primary grades!  It's not as scary as it sounds, and students pick up on these so fast!   Integrating technology into the classroom is an effective way to connect with students of all learning styles.
