Keynote by Pernille Ripp: "Empowering Students Through Choice and Voice"
How do I learn best is the question that Pernille Ripp and her students explore all year throughout their work, personal monitoring, and growth. In this session, based on the book Passionate Learners: How to Engage and Empower Your Students, seventh-grade teacher Pernille Ripp will help both novice and seasoned educators create a positive, interactive learning environment where students drive their own academic achievement by honoring the individual child. Attendees will hear practical strategies for embedding choice, personalization, and sharing ownership of either the virtual, hybrid, or in-person classroom experience with students. Based on common-sense strategies, personal storytelling, and the research behind student engagement, this is a session meant to give easy ideas that can be implemented right away as we navigate these unprecedented times.

It's Technology. Of Course It's Engaging! Right?
Just because you have students use technology doesn't mean that what they are doing is engaging. How can we structure activities that incorporate technology and be sure those activities are engaging? This session will share items you should consider as you design technology activities to maximize student engagement.

The Tik Tok Method
As a lifelong learner, we have to be open to learning new things every day. If you subscribe to this way of thinking, you might also agree that learning takes place everywhere. Let’s take a look at some incredible resources, tools and strategies I learned from a very unlikely place: Tik Tok. As they say: if you can't beat em, join em!
Lindsay Zilly (Director of Professional Learning at IDEA)
