Keynote: Better Together: Teachers; Students & Technology
To increase student learning and engagement in an increasingly digital age, the implementation of technology is a critical step in the 21st century classroom. With so many new apps and devices at our disposal, the hardest part of incorporating technology into daily lessons is trying to figure out where to start. Teachers cannot do this alone. They must rely on their fellow educators and their students to drive lessons to the next level. Joe will help you discover how technology can transform your daily lessons, communication with students and help you take control of the Common Core. Come and see why teachers, students and technology are “better together.”

Using Hapara to Facilitate Google Drive eBinders Schoolwide
If you’re in a school that’s gone or is going 1:1 and is using Hapara and Google Apps for Education, going paperless and having eBinders either replace or supplement traditional binders can make a lot of sense! Teachers attending this session will be able to use Hapara and Drive to facilitate eBinders in their classrooms. Discuss will also be had on how to teach students digital organizational skills they will need to be successful in a 21st-century economy (such as naming and organizing files).

Feedback that Inspires Learning with Google Docs and Forms
Looking for ways to speed up your turn-around time with assignments while simultaneously increasing the value of your feedback? This presentation is for you. In this session you will learn how to leave comments on Google Docs that include links, videos, and follow-up assessments with a couple keystrokes. You'll also learn how to build Google Forms that can be used as formative assessments that reteach during the assessment process, not after. Throughout the session, you'll also be able to discuss some of the research and theories behind effective feedback and how technology allows to do the things we've always wished you could do when it comes to assessment and feedback. Teachers who will benefit most from this session will have a basic understanding of Google Docs and Forms and at least occasionally have written assessments in their classroom.
