I Dare You to Use Data! - Dr. Bob Ranells
Educators often begin improving their schools by asking two questions: "What data should we be analyzing to help our school improve?" and "What data besides the state's standardized test results can we use?" If you have asked these questions, the good news is that your school probably already has an abundance of powerful data on the effectiveness of all parts of the school—and much of this information does not come from standardized tests. The bad news is that if you are not using these data, your school or district probably has not yet organized the data for easy access and analysis. The goal of this session is to provide some examples from a small, rural school district’s use of data.

Keynote: Consumers, Collaborators and Creators – Jennifer Gingerich

The natives are restless. This is not surprising since they consume media at an astonishing daily rate. How can we harness the power of media and move beyond consumption to critical thinking?  What does it mean to be digitally literate in today's society? Examine simple techniques and tools you can use to encourage collaboration and promote creativity in your classroom. These 21st century skills are essential for both students and teachers to succeed in an ever changing, competitive, innovative and expanding society.
