IDOE partnership - LEAD IN Cohort
Buzzwords abound in education but do you know the why? Why do you need student agency, empowered learners, personalized learning, or transparency? Do you know what the vision is to get there? Do you know how you're going to get your school there? Or do you really just need to define what "there" is? LEAD IN is designed for technology coaches, technology integration specialists, or teacher leaders who support digital transformation in their district. This one-day workshop will lead participants on a journey to look at the why, what, and how of incorporating the ISTE Standards, the Future Ready initiative, and best-practices in coaching and leading others to implement educational change. Spend a day networking, learning, and sharing ideas to take back to your school or district!
Through our partnership with the Indiana Department of Education Office of eLearning, there will be two free seats per public school district for the session with a cap of 50 participants. PGP's are available to participants if requested.
IDOE partnership - Focus Forum
The Focus Forum is for district and school administrators, leaders, and change makers from across Indiana. The two-day workshop will focus on building awareness and skills, finding resources, and understanding current trends in digital transformation through the lens of an innovative leader for today's learners.
We will start with a private screening of the 90-minute movie Most Likely to Succeed. The film’s website states, “The film inspires its audiences with a sense of purpose and possibility, and is bringing School communities together in re-imagining what our students and teachers are capable of doing.” Investigate learning space redesign, network, and share best practices and what innovation you are implementing in your school or district. Leave with curated resources, plans for next steps, and a copy of The Innovator's Mindset by George Couros.
Through our partnership with the Indiana Department of Education Office of eLearning, there will be two free seats per public school district for each two-day session with a cap of 50 participants. PGP's are available to participants if requested.
