Future Ready 101
When we analyze the US education system and classrooms across our nation, we see dramatic differences and gaps in innovation. Side-by-side images of classrooms from 1916 and one from 2016, yields eerie similarities in many schools today, even with the 100-year difference. What can be done? How can schools and classrooms transform from those from the industrial era where desks are in rows, students are facing forward, and have teachers always front and center to ones that are student centered, personalized, and leverage the power of technology? Districts and schools across the nation are transforming into ones that are Future Ready, revamping such aspects as curriculum, instruction, and assessment; personalized professional learning; innovative learning spaces; community partnerships; data and privacy; among others outlined by the Future Ready Framework. Join Future Ready’s Tom Murray as he shares how this nationwide initiative can support your district’s vision moving forward. Free tools and resources will also be shared.

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!!

Classroom 3.0: Lesson Design for Common Core and PBL
Jon Corippo will share practical and affordable ways to get the transitional balance right between PBL, 1:1 and "classic" academics. As devices proliferate, we see teachers just converting old assignments (essays and notetaking to their devices) instead of truly re-imagining the nature of classwork. Jon will be sharing new ways to combine discipline with creativity in this hands-on session where attendees play the role of K-12 students.

Common Core = Technology Integration
Come dig into the standards and all the digital integration that lies within. How are you grading your kindergartners on their online collaboration? Are your 11th graders allowed to blog or does your filter stop them from completing the standards? Come see the progressions from Kinder to 12th grade and the scaffolding that must be happening at every grade level. Come understand why the "they teach computers in Middle School" excuse was never valid but is especially not valid now if we are truly preparing our students for college and career readiness. If your district doesn't have defined technology skills and lessons please come and discuss the reasoning why technology should be incorporated at the Curriculum pacing guide level and what tools you should be using to get your students proficient in the standards.

Empowering ELLs & their Parents: Bridging the Digital/Language Divide via Technology
The cell phone is the most quickly adopted consumer technology in the history of the world. According to new research from the Pew Research Center's Internet & American Life Project, 61 percent of Americans own a smartphone while 91 percent of the adult population owning some sort of mobile phone.
 
Also, using the Internet is becoming a necessity across more and more facets of life. It’s used to complete homework, search for and apply for jobs, connect with family and friends. Yet, nearly one-third of U.S. households (32 percent) lack broadband service. Teachers of the lowest income students are more than twice as likely as teachers of the highest income students (56% v. 21%) to say that students’ lack of access to digital technologies is a “major challenge” to incorporating more digital tools into their teaching.
 
In this interactive hands-on workshop, participants will leave with research-driven strategies and digital tools that empower ELLs and their parents. Follow us on Twitter @CAellchat & @tovaralms

Getting Technology Right: What Every Administrator Should Know
School districts and county offices of education are increasingly being provided with added funding that is expected to be invested in technology aimed at improving student achievement and accountability. This is intersecting with the requirement to implement a broad range of reforms and initiatives that will require technological solutions. As school boards, superintendents and school administrators attempt to implement new, and often expensive solutions to the challenges we face, we are beginning to see impressive success and some notable missteps. This session is intended to help districts of all sizes understand the keys to solid decision making regarding technology and some ideas for resources and standards that will help guide that process locally..

Get Out of Your Comfort Zone: Now People!
Amazing things rarely happen in comfort zones. The mental habits we form put us in a place from which we rarely venture. Stepping outside of your comfort zone can be challenging, but the benefits of modeling that type of risk taking as a leader are essential to the growth of your staff. Taking the first step outside of your comfort zone is clearly the most difficult. Connecting current practice to new modes of learning can help us all realize our ability as leaders and propel our staff to places they never thought possible.

This session will share field-tested change/adaptation strategies that are necessary when tech becomes ubiquitous in classrooms. Learn best practices in changing classroom culture, effective change management and the mindset needed to evoke change in your schools. Simply adding technology to a classroom, without addressing the culture of teaching and learning is a mild form of insanity.

Accessing The Innovator Mindset Through Emotional Intelligence
Innovation thrives in schools when students and teachers feel safe to take risks, fail and try again. Technology can provide the tools for innovation, but when Social Emotional Learning (SEL) is integrated into the curriculum, it sets the stage for each child to truly tap into their creativity. In this session we will work our way through the 8 competencies of the 6 Seconds EQ model. In this model students learn to enhance their emotional literacy, recognize patterns, apply consequential thinking, navigate emotions, engage intrinsic motivation, exercise optimism, increase empathy, and pursue noble goals. I will introduce each competency and then follow with a short activity, discussion or exploration to allow participants to better understand each one.

Creating Digital Students in a Title I School
My Assistant Principal and I took the ACSA Innovative Technology Academy in 2013 - 2014. We were then looking at a Title I school of 730 students, 98% Free and Reduced Lunch, 54% EL students and only 34% of the homes had access to the internet or computers. On campus we had only one computer lab and students with very few computer skills. With the support of the ACSA facilitators we were able to transform our school to be prepared to have students confidently perform well on the SBAC this past Spring. We now have a chromebook cart in all 3rd - 6th grade classrooms, 6 chromebook carts for 8 first and second grade teachers to share. We have 3 iPad Carts, a 3D Printer and Vinyl Cutter and have added robotics for all 2nd grade classes. However, none of the hardware can make a difference to students without the abundant training for the teachers, vision, modeling and support of the administration as well as consistent celebrations of where we have arrived with students and teachers. We will present the steps we took over the course of the year we took the course, last year when we implemented our vision and this year as we are expanding the opportunities for students to become the Digital Students they need to be in the 21st Century!

If You Don't Share Your School's Story, Someone Else Will!
Schools are more than just a passage rate on a standardized test. Site leaders know that amazing things happen on their campuses every day, but rarely does anyone know about it (even sometimes people within the school!) In addition, newspapers and outside media sources rarely paint the picture of the school you see every day. Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram have allowed site leaders the chance to not only share the amazing things that happen daily on their campuses, but it also allows leaders to "change the conversation around the kitchen table!"
 
 In this session, we will share best practices for using social media to your advantage to tell your school's story. Real-world examples will be showcased and practical ideas will be shared. Participants will be given access to additional resources to assist in both the roll-out and the incentivizing of staff and parents to take part in sharing a positive message and sharing best practices in their classrooms. Use social media to tell the real story of your school!

Pearson Presentation: Accelerating Literacy and Language Proficiency with iLit ELL: A Digitally Enhanced Curriculum
Accelerating Literacy and Language Proficiency with iLit ELL: A Digitally Enhanced Curriculum

iLit California ELL is a comprehensive digital interactive intervention program that has been proven to accelerate student achievement, with students making on average 2 or more years growth in a single school year. It provides an intensive, accelerated pathway toward on-grade level language proficiency for all English learners, including Long-Term ELs. It includes more than 1,600 high-quality texts, ranging from Lexile level BR to 2500. All texts have audio support as well as translation support (both written and spoken) in 46 different languages and every word is linked to a dictionary and a picture dictionary.

iLit’s gradual release model provides an anchor text for the entire class. This is a grade-level text, which could be quite difficult for struggling readers. So iLit wraps teacher support and a shared reading experience to provide the tools for experiencing grade level complex text. The scaffolded strategies are targeted during small group instruction and then students read independently, practicing the skills and strategies from the anchor text in highly-engaging non-fiction texts that are at their reading level. This dual approach enables us to close the gap.

In iLit, students’ progress is continually assessed by a variety of measures. Embedded in iLit are the GRADE assessment--which is a NCRTI recognized independent assessment that measures reading comprehension, and the TELL assessment--which is a nationally normed assessment aligned with CA ELD standards that measures language proficiency. In addition, weekly authentic performance-based tasks that mirror SBAC style items ensure students are mastering content and prepare them for next generation assessments.

iLit combines research-proven best practices with highly-engaging texts. This results in accelerated student achievement and we have the independently verified data to prove it. Rather than lowering the bar for our ELs, iLit provides them with the boost they need to meet our high expectations.

How Do You Know Your EdTech PD is Working?
How do you measure the value of the classroom-targeted EdTech PD? This is not something that can easily be defined by test scores. We are in our sixth year of one-to-one, but over the last five years we have had the opportunity to use Action Research in Education to evaluate how EdTech PD is helping teachers and students in the classroom, and we have used Instructional Rounds to help us inform PD. When we combined these tools with teacher and student qualitative and quantitative surveys, we are not only able identify strategies that support our problem of practice and improve student learning at the higher order thinking levels, but we are also able to show that our PD process is working in the classroom.
 
 Join us for a look at the lessons we have learned about how Action Research, Instructional Rounds, and surveys can inform PD. We will share how we are using these tools to think differently about our approach to EdTech PD with our teachers.

Keynote Luncheon: Sir Ken Robinson
Creative Schools: Revolutionizing Education From The Ground Up

In Creative Schools, Sir Ken Robinson presents groundbreaking, practical solutions to a critical issue for our nation: how to transform our troubled education system. He argues for an end to our outmoded industrial educational system and proposes a highly personalized, organic approach that draws on today’s unprecedented technological and professional resources to engage all students, develop their love of learning, and enable them to face the real challenges of the twenty-first century. 

Ken Robinson is one of the world’s most influential voices in education, and his 2006 TED Talk on the subject is the most viewed in the organization’s history. Now, the internationally recognized leader on creativity and human potential focuses on one of the most critical issues of our time: how to transform the nation’s troubled educational system. At a time when standardized testing businesses are raking in huge profits, when many schools are struggling, and students and educators everywhere are suffering under the strain, Robinson points the way forward. He argues for an end to our outmoded industrial educational system and proposes a highly personalized, organic approach that draws on today’s unprecedented technological and professional resources to engage all students, develop their love of learning, and enable them to face the real challenges of the twenty-first century. Sir Ken Robinson inspires teachers, parents, and policy makers alike to rethink the real nature and purpose of education.

Considering 1:1? Let's talk.
As an elementary site principal, 1:1 was both exciting and terrifying. We're a GAFE K-12 district, and we deployed 7,400 iPads at the start of the 15-16 school year. Let me walk you through our 1:1 adoption and deployment process. As we worked through the kinks, stayed focused on students and celebrated the wins, we documented the journey. We’ll start with initial iPad decisions (after a one-year 8th grade 1:1 Chromebook experience), setting up the back end (vendor choices, set up needs), teacher deployment and training, and then student deployment and initial lessons (including digital citizenship and care of their iPad). We’ve designed handbooks, lesson plans and activities to share, as well as parent education agendas and resources. Your questions and areas of interest will shape our time together. Participants will leave with a solid example of 1:1 rollout (warts and all).

Learn with a sitting principal practical ways the apps of Google Drive + free add-ons can transform your practice, making you more efficient, effective, and a hero to your staff.
 
Let’s face it. School administrators frequently get bogged down with necessary but time-consuming administrative tasks that take away from what’s most important -- getting into classrooms, building relationships with students and parents, and supporting teachers. We are to be instructional leaders, but too often we get trapped in our office. In this session, I’ll share practical ways Google Docs, Forms, and Sheets can be used to streamline tasks, better communicate with staff, and provide feedback to teachers -- actual, successful methods I am currently using with my staff, not just hypotheticals.

Navigating the Smarter Balanced Interim Assessments for CCSS Success
The new California Standards and assessment system challenges schools and districts to prepare students for the rigor and the technology hurdles of the CAASPP summative assessment. Come learn about tools that will help administrators and teachers to adequately prepare students. The Smarter Balanced Interim Assessment System assists in meeting those demands by providing students with authentic formative assessment opportunities using the same question types and technology tools as the CAASPP summative assessment. We will also explore the professional development tools in the Digital Library that prepare teachers and administrators in formative and summative assessment success in meeting the California Standards.

This session will go beyond the scope of the 75 minute concurrent session by providing hands-on opportunities to experience an Interim Assessment Block, as well as a professional development module in the Digital Library. It is important that participants bring a laptop, and both their TOMS/CAASPP and Digital Library login information.

Technology-Supported Instruction Design that Works!
Educators once cited limited access to hardware, poor quality digital instructional materials, and technical problems as primary barriers to effective technology integration. Today we know there’s more to it. In addition to addressing these aforementioned concerns, educators must approach planning and implementation of technology-supported instruction using strategies that do more than automate what they would have done anyway. Attend this session to learn ways administrators can help teachers use the TPACK framework and SAMR model to design learning activities that employ technology and make a difference in student learning.

Effective technology integration requires more than access to up-to-date hardware and a robust infrastructure. Teachers must understand and apply the complex interrelationships of three components of knowledge—technology, pedagogy, and content knowledge—when planning technology-supported activities. They must also be aware of their own level of technology use and how that impacts their ability to bring technology-supported instruction into their classrooms. In addition, administrators must understand how to recognize and support this approach to instruction.
Attend this session to:

* Review the TPACK framework and sample activities.
* Examine the SAMR model to determine personal levels of technology use.
* Explore the the revised Bloom's Taxonomy.
* Identify ways administratrs can help teachers incorporate these frameworks into existing lesson plan templates.
