Before the Conference

Please bookmark the conference website on your mobile device. https://sites.google.com/a/teachers.wlcsd.org/spice-it-up-2016/ If you bring an iPad, please make sure that the operating system and apps are up-to-date. Also, it would be a good idea to add the link as an icon on the home screen. See directions here.  The web site is the “one stop shop” for all matters related to the conference.  


All attendees must pre-register for individual sessions on Kalpa. If on the day of the conference you desire to make a change, you will be able to do so by adding your name to the bottom of a session sign in/out sheet.  Non Walled Lake guests, paras and secretaries do not need to pre-register for breakout sessions; they will record attendance on session sign in/out sheets.

 

What to Bring

Please make sure all devices you bring are fully charged (laptop, iPad, other mobile devices) and updated (Windows updates, tablet and app updates). Having a mobile device will come in handy to access conference information.

 

When You Arrive

Please arrive at Walled Lake Central High School between 7:45-8:00am. Proceed to the auditorium. If interested, order and pay for lunch prior to the keynote ($7 – see menu here). Please be seated in the auditorium by 8:25am.


Be a Good Network Neighbor

Most of us will come with more than one device that connects to the Internet, and there will be hundreds of people at the conference. Therefore, it is very important that each of us only connect to the wireless network with ONE device at a time for the best conference experience for all.

Social Media

Please use the hashtag #WLECED (Walled Lake Every Child Every Day) for all social media posts. Share ideas, resources, and photos throughout the day. See the social media page on the conference web site for a compiled list of all posts tagged with the conference hashtag.

 

Tech Help Desk

Visit the help desk in the hallway between the B and C wings for any technology-related issues.
