Tuesday, January 29, 2013 February 11: Best Practices Conference
Cooperating School Districts’ Best Practices Conference is a full day of learning and sharing the best educational practices. CSD partnered with the Innovative Technology Education Fund for the conference this year. ITEF is a St. Louis- based charitable nonprofit operating as a private foundation. Best Practices participants will hear keynote Monte Selby, as well as top educators from the St. Louis metro area, whose practices are making a difference for students and teachers, like:
- Don Goble, Ladue School District, on media literacy
- Patricia Ulrich, Ritenour School District, on systems thinking
- Gregory Taylor, St. Louis Public Schools, on creating and using classroom websites for differentiation
- plus other education professionals from CSD, the St. Louis RPDC, and school districts
In addition, ITEF Spotlight Presentations Include:
- Using iPads in the Classroom, Affton School District
- Great Video Made with Inexpensive Gear, Westminster Christian Academy
- Using Online Courses to Keep Students On Track to Graduate, Marian Middle School
- iPads and the Library: Transforming All Students into Digital Learners, Hazelwood School District
Dr. Selby will also present several sessions during both the morning and afternoon, including Emotions: This Crazy Kid is Making ME Crazy and Motivated Meetings: The End of Boring. Dr. Selby will share ideas and strategies to use with children, preK-12; providing solutions to issues and challenges facing classroom teachers today.
You are invited to join area teachers and leaders on Monday, February 11. Online registration ends on February 1, 2013; walk-ins, however, are welcome the day of the conference. (Also scheduled, although in a different section of the St. Charles Convention Center, are the preconference workshops for the 30th annual Midwest Education Technology Conference).
