Building Bolder Schools: It Doesn't Hurt to Be First
Who wants to be the line leader? Ask that in any elementary room and every hand would go flying into the air. And yet, schools seem to be terrified of being the first ones to adopt new ideas in technology. Somewhere between kindergarten and our last faculty meeting, the role of line leader seems to have gone from the best job on the board to a position that's just a little terrifying. When did we become so terrified of being a trailblazer? During this presentation, we'll explore the risks, benefits, and transformations that can occur when a school embraces risk and is willing to step up and be first.

Digital Citizenship is a relatively new yet hot topic in the world of education today. Vast amounts of time and effort are spent educating students in the area of #DigCit, and rightfully so.

Do we still need to teach Digital Citizenship? Absolutely! But this one skill makes all the difference.

Defining Your Digital Ecosystem
Description: Digital tools are essential to our survival in our personal and professional lives.  For educators and students, decisions are made every day as to which tools are assimilated into our "digital ecosystems."  But it's so overwhelming!  This begs the answers to two questions:
  1. What tools comprise the digital ecosystems of students and educators?
  2. How do educators and students decide which tools they should be using in the digital age?

Nathan will explore these questions through personal and local examples in this relevant, practical message.
