OPENING KEYNOTE - MONDAY, FEBRUARY 12
THOMAS C. MURRAY
Learning Transformed
Having no historical precedent, the current speed of technological breakthroughs has lead to the coming age of workplace automation, dramatically altering the world of work that our students will enter upon graduation. With the vast disparities of inequity that have existed for centuries, all that is known about how students learn, and the predictions regarding the world that our students will face tomorrow, utilizing a traditional, one-size-fits-all approach to teaching and learning is educational malpractice. Built upon the foundation of leadership and school culture, a redesigned learning experience fundamentally shifts the teaching and learning paradigm to one that is personal, while altering the use of authentic assessments, how technology is leveraged, the spaces in which the learning occurs, the way educators grow professionally, how schools collaborate with the community, and ultimately, the sustainability of the system as a whole. In this session, Murray will dissect these eight keys, which each serve as a puzzle piece for redesigning the learning experience, to unlock tomorrow’s schools so that today’s modern learners leave ready to create new industries, find new cures, and solve world problems. We must create tomorrow’s schools tay and you are part of the solution.
   
TUESDAY KEYNOTE - TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 12
Dr. JOE SANFELIPPO
Changing the Narrative
When is the last time something amazing happened in your school?  How many people knew about it?  The work done in schools all across the globe is spectacular.  Kids gather…learn…leave…and make the world we live in a better place.  So…amazing things happen all the time.  Telling the story of schools helps create a narrative that builds culture and gives everyone in your community an identity.  Utilizing social media and being the chief storyteller in your district is a great way to celebrate the success of students with parents and the community. FIND YOUR AUDIENCE...BUILD YOUR BRAND...CELEBRATE KIDS!!
