Great news! Dr. Kecia Ray, Executive Director of Learning Technology for the Metropolitan Nashville Public Schools and current president of the board of directors of the International Society for Technology in Education, will be our keynote speaker at the luncheon on Friday, April 11, 2014.
There’s good news and bad news. The good news is that we received 110 proposals for workshops and presentations by yesterday’s deadline—a new record for us. The bad news is that we have room in the program for less than half that many, so the steering committee will have some tough choices to make.
BUT, there’s an exception to every rule. If your company, non-profit, or other organization would like to be a Presenting Partner, we still have a few Spotlight Sessions available. Learn more about being a Leadership 3.0 Sponsor.
We don’t want to reward procrastination, but we do want to make sure even the most overworked ed leader has the opportunity to submit a proposal for a 75-minute presentation or 3-hour workshop at the 2014 Symposium. So, we’ve extended the deadline to Monday, October 28 at Midnight PDT.
The Symposium will be held next spring at the San Mateo Marriott, which is very near San Francisco International Airport. Workshops will take place April 10; concurrent sessions will take place April 11–12.
We have a theme! ”Leadershift: innovation, technology and leadership in a new era.“
No, that’s not a typo. With the transition to Common Core State Standards, the word shift appears often. The new standards represent shifts in curriculum. We’re asking teachers to shift their instruction. Publishers are shifting from print materials to digital ones. It seems natural that leaders be called upon to make some shifts as well—hence the newly minted term leadershift.
Education is not the only field in which leadershift appears. In fact, search Amazon and you’ll find 30 books that use the term. At this year’s Symposium, we’ll explore the shifts in leadership practice that may be necessary to meet today’s educational challenges. In the meantime, help us get a handle on leadershift.
