Featured Presenters

Mr. Michael Toth

Artificial intelligence is developing so fast that 50% of existing jobs will be automated over the next 10 years and our economy has evolved faster than our education system.  We need to create 'future-proof skills' for today's students.  Join Michael Toth, respected researcher, and author of Who Moved My Standards, School Leadership for Results, as well as other titles on instruction, as he explores how to transform classrooms from traditional to 21st century future-proof classrooms.  You'll leave with an inspired vision for your school and district.

Dr. David Sousa

Technology is changing our brains and the effects are even more pronounced in the brains of our students.  One thing is perfectly clear:  to ensure that today's students succeed, educators must change the way they teach.  Join Dr. David Sousa, a highly-respected consultant in educational neuroscience and author of Engaging the Rewired Brain and Brain Friendly Assessments, for an intriguing session that explores how to leverage what we know about the functions of the brain to make the greatest impact on your students.

A lunch break, including a complimentary box lunch, will be provided.
