SLATE 2016

  1. Jaime Casap, Chief Education Evangelist, Google

    As the world gets more connected, it also gets more complex. We now operate on a global scale and our job in education is to help learners develop the knowledge, skills, and abilities they will need to thrive in this new environment. We are preparing them to solve global problems we haven’t defined yet, using technology that hasn’t been invented, in roles that do not exist. To thrive in this new era, learners need to know how to learn, engage, create, collaborate, communicate, and to think critically. We need to continually iterate and innovate education in pursuit of making it a powerful, effective, and engaging learning experience.

    Jaime Casap is the Chief Education Evangelist at Google. Jaime evangelizes the power and potential of the web, technology, and Google tools as enabling and supporting capabilities in pursuit of fostering inquiry-driven project-based learning models. Jaime collaborates with educational organizations and leaders building innovation and iteration into our education practices. He speaks on the subject of technology, education, and innovation at events around the world.

  4. “That is amazing!” “Wow, I wish my district did that!” “How did you get that started?” These are comments we hear when we tell people about Technology Integration in our district, and it’s also why we decided to present at SLATE this year. Hear from our Technology Integration Specialist, Director of IT, Learning Coaches, and our Superintendent as we share our most valuable advice, methodologies, and lessons-learned regarding meaningful technology integration. From crafting and funding our 1:1 vision, to providing classroom teacher support with tech coaches and a Geek Squad, to creating flipped PD days and teacher-led tech inservices, you are certain to leave this session with several practical ideas on how to improve the state of tech integration in your district.

  5. Throughout the 2015-16 school year, we explored how to change a fixed mindset in our students or increase a growth mindset in our Special Education Students (grades 6-8) by reading Mindset: The New Psychology of Success by Carol S. Dweck, Ph.D and Ready-to-Use Resources for Mindsets in the Classroom: Everything Educators Need for School Success by Mary Cay Ricci. As instructors, we increased our own awareness of fixed and growth mindset and sought out ways to change our mindsets in an effort to reach our potential as well as expose our students to their potential. We implemented several of the books strategies to increase our targeted population’s ability to change from a fixed mindset to growth mindset. Technology incorporated: We’ve combined the use of Google Classroom, Google Slides, Google Documents and Google Forms for communication with parents and instruction with students. The use of Individual Online Assignment Notebooks, individual Student Online Profiles, and Advisory lessons (school wide) to increase student responsibility and production, and organization.
