Using Adaptive Technology to Create the Ultimate Differentiated Math Class
Presentation Site
This presentation addresses a familiar challenge – how to teach to a diverse group of students with varied math abilities while preparing for 21st century learning. I will demonstrate an online math program that, backed by research, uses unprecedented technology and AI to accurately assess each student’s math level and then deliver personalized instruction on what a student is ready to learn. Special focus will be placed on the program’s innovative features and learning tools, and how they can be used effectively to support a teacher’s instruction toward meeting classroom goals. In sharing my extensive experience in helping teachers implement this program for all student groups, teachers will learn strategies on how to achieve math success with their students in various contexts, from RtI to Gifted.

CANCELLED: Flipping for Technology
Limited Capacity seats available

Presentation Site
We've been hearing about the Flipped Classroom for a while now, but it seems overwhelming, and there are definitely some challenges. Teaching flipped computer technology classes for over a year has taught me a thing or two about what works and what doesn't when using this new pedagogical model. In this session, I will share my experiences flipping classes at the high school and college levels. Tips will include how to structure resources, how to introduce the model to students and use it with them on a daily basis, and what you do during class time. I will also focus on answering your questions about how to make this model work for you. Time permitting, we can also explore some of the tools that can be used to flip your class.
