Presentation Title: Lead the World
Presentation Description: Students are the greatest textbook ever written for each other, yet, many schools close the book on learning outside classroom walls. After five years of global collaborative classroom excellence, this presentation first uses voices from the keynoters, students, and teachers around the world that have been part of the Flat Classroom projects and conferences to share how education has fundamentally changed through a beautiful medley of voices. Then, hear from Vicki Davis, co-founder, about the 7 principles that can take your classroom global and the current challenges and misconceptions surrounding what it means to globalize your classroom. We hope you’ll join this journey of learning and thank all of our keynoters, students, and teachers, for sharing their voice in this move towards excellence in global education.

Presentation Title: What If the Story Changed?
Presentation Description: This presentation is about changing the story of what we do, the challenges behind that, and examples of what that change might look like. The presentation is based in a very simple idea I’ve been exploring lately, and one based in rethinking the way in which both individuals and organizations respond to new thinking and new ideas. The presentation will challenge your thinking about traditional perspectives on education, and offer insights on how we might rethink these. I’ll begin with an introduction and then offer a series of vignettes that explore the story of change, all centering on rethinking how we approach the design of new ideas with a very simple approach you can use today. Please join me as I explore changing the story…
Presentation Description: Our story is about growing leaders in the Ed Tech Cohort at Brock University in Hamilton, Ontario. This story begins with planting the seeds of tech leadership by providing intensive hands-on educational technology training. Their growth was nurtured by helping them develop an online professional network and partnering them with Virtual Associate Teachers. As their technical and tech-social competencies grew, cohort participants also received instruction in pedagogical approaches that use technology to enhance teaching and learning, technical curriculum design and leadership theory. This training and support was essential so that they may become a future educational technology leaders and a ‘Forest of Leaders’ can take root. Throughout the presentation you will hear their voices and stories as they grow into 21st century teachers.
