Creating and Curating Digital Content

In a learning platform, the degree to which students engage with schoolwork depends on the quality of the digital resources they are asked to explore. Teachers have a unique role in creating and curating engaging resources. If you are committed to this role, this workshop is for you!

This session will include a customized field trip to the Perot Museum of Nature and Science in Dallas, Texas, and to its predecessor, the Museum at Fair Parks. These experiences will offer varied opportunities to think about how museum exhibits for twenty-first-century customers require unique approaches not available in the last century. Participants will also learn about curating in general and apply their learning to some future experience in their districts.

Superintendents Leadership Network (SLN) Institutes are open only to SLN network members.

Imagine that you had both time and resources at the ready. Imagine that you were immersed in an environment of incredible resources: fellow teachers with whom you could collaborate and brainstorm new ideas; consultants available for coaching, designing, ideating, and integrating technology; even student consultants ready and willing to provide you with input concerning engagement and/or technology use. Imagine no more.

Held in Florida.

At this Institute we will address the changing context of assessment and accountability and how these changes impact expectations for superintendents and school leaders. John Tanner, author of The Pitfalls of Reform: Its Incompatibility with Actual Improvement, will be with us as a resource to help consider how an accountability system that benefits students is different from one designed to benefit policymakers. We will explore the relationship between engagement and accountability.

Superintendents Leadership Network (SLN) Institutes are open only to SLN network members.

It’s time to get beyond traditional technology implementation models and integrate technology seamlessly for engagement and profound learning. That takes a lot more than memorizing a few digital tools and substituting paper-and-pencil tasks with keyboarding tasks. TIME is a two-day experience that helps teachers meet these new challenges.
