Abraham Lincoln Was a Woman and Other Fake News
To prepare our students as critical thinking, responsible citizens, we need to teach them how to search for and locate REAL information. In this session we'll look at strategies to get to facts and primary sources. We'll also look at how knowing these can help us to design better lessons that lead to deeper learning.

Data Breach Simulation
Do your emergency response plans include thoughtful, practical experience in responding to data breaches? With hacks on the rise--just like fire drills--it's important for all organizations to run through the paces of responding to a rapidly-evolving breach with public relations and legal implications. This interactive opportunity to run through a simulated data breach will provide participants with practical experience in responding to the media, angry parents, and more as they navigate a simulated data breach and develop a data breach response plan that they can take back and share out with their schools and districts.

Just How Effective Are Your Social Justice Leaders?
We must examine our beliefs and affirm, that all students  can and deserve to succeed and master rigorous standards.  Many conditions of school success are, in fact, under our control. When we affirm that virtually all students can succeed and master challenging expectations, we are compelled to seek and provide what it takes to make it happen.  Participants will hear and learn the key beliefs and actions that foster inclusion, access and opportunities for all.   We all need to aim to create schools that literally serve each and every student. It is time that we commit our practice to positioning educators as a driving force toward social justice for not only marginalized students but for ALL students.

Know Better Do Better (#KBDB)
“Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better.” —Maya Angelou.

Why change? It is quite simple- we have no option not to. Our students, our schools, our lives, our futures - are in a constant state of flux. If we are not also in a continuous state of learning and growing- ourselves and our students will be left behind. 

How do we change? We adopt the “Know Better, Do Better” mantra. 

In this session, we will provide activities to guide your educators to “discover” their “Know Better” practices. The ones that are no longer effective or supportive for students. 

Attendees will also participate in practical examples and lesson ideas to support your staffs to “Do Better” on Monday. 

This session is guaranteed to be a fun, fast paced, practical, interactive session full of heart, anecdotes, hands on learning and a good time!”
