Grab a seat and hold onto it! In this fast-paced session, you’ll hear from five experts in their fields, each with only ten minutes to deliver a powerful and compact message. Who makes better decisions, leaders or “smart” people? How do we help students who are immersed in social media develop a social conscience? How can a district leverage Web 2.0 to increase stakeholder awareness of Common Core and SBAC? Can Facebook play a role in adult basic education? How can you best support the adult learners who are the parents and guardians of your K-12 students? You’ll get answers to those questions as well as the opportunity to ask some of your own.
