The 4th Industrial Revolution and its Impact on Learning

We are living during a time of unprecedented and rapid change. New technologies like artificial intelligence, 3D printing, and robotics are emerging with the potential for having a transformative impact on industry, the economy and society as a whole.   Our physical and digital worlds are fusing, resulting in breakthroughs that were only imagined in the past. The speed and scope of this technological transformation is exponential with the potential for unlimited possibilities and endless opportunities. What are the implications for schools, educators, and students?  How do we provide leadership in a time of rapid change?  The CoSN 2018 Annual Conference will dive deeply into the issues as we seek answers to these questions and design learning in the 4th Industrial Revolution. Learn more here.

2:00 PM – 3:00 PM:
Room: Gunston West
Format: Concurrent Session – 60 Minutes
Brief Session Description: Starting innovation is the ‘easy’ part of transformation, when the district and school conditions are right; sustaining innovation is infinitely more difficult even under the best conditions. Join us for this interactive design session focused on how to frame, refine, and advance your district’s innovation agenda by leveraging lessons learned from the New Tech Network. Our experience supporting school innovation in urban, suburban and rural contexts across the country for more than a decade has yielded a deep understanding of what are often predictable challenges that can derail innovation efforts. Using a set of NTN diagnostic tools, participants will gain greater clarity around current conditions and identify potential adaptation strategies to increase student outcomes from their innovation initiatives.

Making Mastery Meaningful: Opportunities for Authentic Feedback in Proficiency-Based and Project-Based Learning

March 12

1:45-3:00 PM

In this session withJNew Tech Network Director Stacia Snow, participants will explore multiple opportunities for authentic feedback within the phases of high-quality project-based unit design. Presenters will discuss how mastery-based assessments enhance the quality of a project and personalize the work for each student. Participants will engage in several human-centered design activities to inspire feedback innovations and plan ways to try them out with their students.

Session participants will gain an understanding of the phases of high-quality project-based unit design and find various opportunities within each phase to embed mastery-based assessments; create authentic opportunities for feedback utilizing project-based learning unit design, and make a plan for small-scale implementation of authentic and mastery-based feedback with their students.

Opportunity vs. Achievement: Framing the Gap

Mar 5, 2018

2:00pm – 3:00pm

Ever feel stuck in a conversation about test scores? Join New Tech Network’s Jim May and LASGS Principal Christion Quintero in a campfire conversation to discuss this topic and more.

Despite the fact that practitioners, policymakers, and scholars have been writing about the opportunity gap for the last decade, the primary way that schools across the country currently understand and act on educational equity is through the construct of the achievement gap. This open conversation will argue that the opportunity gap is a more robust frame for understanding and responding to educational inequity than the achievement gap.

Why Innovate Alone? Harness the Power of Networks

Mar 6, 2018

4:00pm – 6:00pm

Join President and CEO Lydia Dobyns School from New Tech Network, Carlos Moreno from Big Picture Learning, and Getting Smart’s Tom Vander Ark as they discuss why school networks are one of the most important innovations in modern era K-12 education. By providing design principles, curriculum, tech tools, and ways to facilitate connected learning and improvement, networks play an important role in scaling high-quality learning. This design workshop will start with stories from network leaders and strategies for creating networks within your system, then you’ll work together to design and share a plan for how networks can empower you and your colleagues.

The Struggle is Real-Rural, High Poverty Districts

Mar 6, 2018

11:00am – 12:00pm

This session, with New Tech Network leader Dr. Kristin Cuilla, Dr. Melissa Crosby from Colleton County High and Superintendent Dr. Franklin Foster, explores district innovation and perseverance in one of four research study districts working to solve rural, high poverty problems. Our case study reveals how education innovation is not about starting a program; it’s about creating a pivot point that fundamentally shifts mindsets to transform teaching and learning. We will also examine the connection between educational attainment and economic development.
