A Good Place To Start: The Beginning with How to Use Tech
In this world of a variety of tools, apps, and programs, it can be difficult to know where to begin for how to approach an audience when sharing a tool. The best place to start can actually be the very beginning with how the tool works. Sample tutorials for a variety of G Suite apps will be demonstrated in this session with step by step procedures. The process by which one can create a tutorial for one’s own school district will be shared as a conclusion to this session.

Accepting Failure, True Accountability
This talk will look at the failures of both the student and the teacher in the classroom and some ways to handle them from my personal experience and my peers experience. We will investigate small failures, for example, getting an answer incorrect or a lesson idea does not work (Tech or no tech it happens). Then we will go deeper into the largest failure, a student failing a course.

How to get started with STEAM, full integration, a class on its own or an afterschool program.
The hardest thing about teaching STEAM is questioning yourself.   Is this actually STEAM?  How can it be incorporated so that it is educational, beneficial and really increasing critical thinking, problem-solving and creativity? Listen to a quick session on how you can get started...how you can motivate your students and then how you can guide them in the right direction to inventing to solve a problem.  Students need to be led to a project they are passionate about and will push the boundaries of their knowledge.  Motivate, instill good collaboration skills and problem-solving through the ideas that will be introduced.  Get students inventing while covering curriculum nad learning new skills.

Student Activism in a Digital World
This ignite will focus on the benefits and drawbacks of technology in a world where student voice and agency has become increasingly important, yet volatile. Examples, strategies, and opportunities will frame the talk.

The not so secret life of students: digital privacy issues for today’s youth
Are we teaching students about Big Data on a broad enough scope?  Do our students know how their data can be collected and shared with others?  A quick overview of the topic and some questions to ask ourselves as educators.

Will Technology Make Teachers Obsolete?
In an age where students can access any content from anywhere at any time, how can we justify teaching it? What is the role of a educator in the digital age? Consider the ed tech that has changed how students learn. Reflect on why teachers are still necessary and how teaching can change to prepare students in the 21st century.
