The Fun and Cool of Getting Better
- We all know that we can get better. A cool idea here, an adapted technique there, and soon, we're reaching the next student - the one who has been such a challenge. One of the best pieces of teaching is getting kids like that to believe in themselves, so why not try something new that allows you and them to experience something fun, cool, and hopeful? Join in for ideas, techniques, and advice that can make you a little (or a lot) better now.
Making Your School Something Special
- Technology allows us to reimagine how we take our schools from good to great, enhancing learning activities, building staff morale and confidence, and communicating effectively with the larger community. In this talk, we will look at how we can move our teaching toward the powerfully memorable, build an exploratory culture, foster and share successes, and strengthen individual confidence in our students and our colleagues.
