How Might We Transform Our Schools into Human Centered, Empathy-Fueled Incubators?
There’s more knowledge in the world than our kids can ever possibly learn. And it is increasing every day. We are going to lose the battle to learn everything. But we can win a much bigger war of purpose and meaning in our schools. I have a vision for schools, and it doesn’t require millions of dollars in new funding -- though that would be nice. What if we focus on students learning empathy and collaboration, invention and reflection, communication, and compassion? What if we found a means to use makerspaces as social emotional learning spaces? We can take practical steps toward that very vision and this interactive keynote will show you how.

Engineering the Oregon Trail
Robots on the Oregon Trail, you bet. Learners will code, engineer cargo vessels, and encounter numerous challenges traveling from Independence, MO to Oregon City, OR.The main focus is for the learner to work in teams to solve a complex problem by breaking it down into smaller parts.

Challenge Criteria: Engineering teams will design and build a working prototype that will meet the needs of settlers on the Oregon Trail. Prototypes must: be able to carry cargo, be covered, and be pulled by an outside force on the Oregon Trail.

The Prototype Team engineers a covered structure that is able to carry cargo and can attach to a spherical robot. The Coding Team develops a programmed sequence for their robot to navigate a course without hitting barriers. Having limited time to build and test, decisions must be made quickly and teamwork skills applied. Brilliant failures and unexpected success will be had by all. Come and “work the problem” in this hands-on, collaborative, and easily applicable session.

What are some common practices currently in place that make school environments exclusive, racist, oppressive, and biased? How do you create an environment where we move past the superficial work of diversity to the uncomfortable and more difficult work of inclusion and dismantling whiteness? Why is addressing and disrupting whiteness important in all schools even those that are majority white in population? What are ways we can better do the work in our schools to create not only welcoming environments for both educators and students of color, but ultimately provide sufficient agency, care, and support that allows these individuals ample opportunity to succeed and thrive? Join this session where we will discuss and share tangible steps and ideas that should occur in all school spaces to dismantle the pervasiveness of whiteness which harms all students and teachers.

If We Don't Teach It 'They' Will Be Forcing Perspective One Human At A Time
Humans of all sizes are feeling divided yet closer, more educated, or more ignorant? It seems like a bipolar mess reaping havoc one human at a time. But perhaps it's just humans and the algorithms they make forcing our perspectives.

Join this active learning session if you want to:
  • Look at the global landscape of media, values, and education today instead of just one vantage point that is being manipulated daily by transformational technology advancements and an economy craving human attention.
  • Test your own biases and triggers so you can gain compassion for your staff, community, and students.
  • Practice at least three media literacy strategies that any K-20 educator can use with kids/peers in our classrooms/schools to help combat misinformation/disinformation.

'Forcing Perspective One Human At A Time' looks to inspire educators and administrators alike to weave media literacy strategies into their work; instead of allowing social media, trolls, and clickbait to reap havoc on their student's mindsets, opportunities, and daily choices.

Human-Centered Problem Solving & Design Thinking in Any Classroom
We don’t have to spend thousands of dollars to start a makerspace or dedicate a special area of our buildings for project-based learning to occur. With an adjustment to how we approach teaching and learning in our pre-existing classrooms, we can transform any space and any subject matter into a purpose-driven problem-solving opportunity for students. This session provides participants the opportunity to apply the principles of design thinking (people-centered, empathy-fueled problem solving) to transform both their classrooms and their teaching strategies. Participants will experience a mix of high, low, and no-tech approaches to making meaningful solutions through the design process. After experiencing a design thinking “flashlab” first hand, participants will uncover changes they would like to make to their learning environments and their pedagogy, identify needs of their students/users, experiment with possible solutions, and produce working prototypes, worthy of implementation in your impact areas. Along the way, participants will explore how we might integrate a design thinking approach into any educational domain, whether in the classroom, the administrator, or the community. Participants are encouraged to bring phones, cameras, laptops, tablets, and a growth mindset.

Social Emotional Learning: A Foundation for Student Success
Learning is an inherently social and emotional process. While schools have always focused on academic skills and content, there is a growing body of research and observational evidence showing the link between Social & Emotional Learning (SEL), success in school, and happiness in life. During this interactive session we will explore how paying more attention to SEL can benefit students’ confidence, assist in creating a more positive culture and ultimately improve the learning process. Participants will walk away with ideas and strategies that they can use in the classroom and schools immediately.

Building Agile Online Classrooms
In this session we take high-end marketplace DEV-Ops frameworks and apply them to single-teacher “Classroom-Ops,” regardless of whether your classroom is in-person or online. 
DEV-Ops Frameworks (agile/waterfall/scrum)  are a set of best-practices in software/app development.  The intent of these frameworks is to react quickly to a drop in engagement (sales) resulting in quick fix with minimal loss.
Agile teachers are flexible and focused. They are in-tune with the needs of students. Agile classrooms have an easy-to-navigate user interface and features that just keep coming out to improve the user experience. This session will train you to use "agile" within educational technology, content, and pedagogy to improve student experiences.
