Topics for Entire School Districts,  Faculties, or Departments:

The keynotes are designed to motivate teachers to use Information Technology, whether they have a "one computer classroom," a lab full of student workstations, Chromebooks, or mobile devices. Audiences can see what teachers and students, across the country, are currently doing with technology. The presenter has collected examples from K-12 educators, which include several "best practices" that can be used as models for your school. The examples are applicable to any platform - Mac or PC. If districts are asking, "How should we be using technology in our school?" or "How can we address the Learning Standards via technology?" or "Can technology be used for true integration?" or "How do teachers get started?" this presentation is for you. Educators can teach course content, use technology as a tool, address the Standards, foster critical thinking, and measure what students have learned. They don't have to reinvent the wheel (a concern among teachers trying to transfer their lessons from traditional to current technologies). They can start with things they are already doing.

Additionally, the "Teacher Productivity" presentations show teachers all the ways they can be using computer technology to make themselves more productive, save time, do record keeping, create templates, publish newsletters, use spreadsheets and databases, create student handouts, and more. Computer technology can also be used to access resources on the WEB for teaching and learning, to connect students with online practice sites, to create teacher made materials, to increase home/school connections, etc. Imagine teacher-created materials that are posted to classroom web pages for both students and parents to download and use, or imagine accessing sites on the WEB where teachers post daily assignments or discuss upcoming field trips. And, picture classroom WEB pages, created by teachers and students that archive what is going on in the classroom. It opens up the door of the classroom so that parents/guardians get a better idea of what is happening. Classroom websites can be used in addition to Google Classroom.


Length of Presentations and Keynotes:

Presentations and keynotes can be anywhere from 1 to 3 hours in length, depending on your needs. Most keynotes are delivered on opening-day sessions or on superintendents' conference days, and are often part of "full day" staff development. Keynotes can be in the morning with training sessions in the afternoon, or scheduled to fit your schedule.
