Sponsor Mini-session: Fortinet- Protecting Student Data in Today’s Digital World
Parents, students, teachers and staff alike have entrusted their school with protecting private data, including but not limited to social security numbers, e-mails, tax information, and other personal and financial data.  However, schools can be a playground for potential cyber threats as more data, devices and applications put a strain on school district networks.  Advanced threats loom over school districts hoping to take advantage of an IT department that is ill equipped to provide secure digital learning.
 
This session will explore the recent evolution of cybersecurity challenges in student learning today, distinguishing true threats from simple noise.  Recognizing the difference is crucial for IT leaders to minimize risk and strengthen security, transparency and control to ensure the safety of student data without getting in the teachers’ way.

Destination: Innovation - A Journey to Blended and Personalized PD
To support innovation in classrooms, professional development should model similar next-generation instructional techniques. Blended and personalized professional development provides opportunities for collaboration, application, and additional support that extends past a traditional staff meeting. Additionally, rethinking the way adult learning is delivered in schools allows all staff to experience the benefits of innovative learning models. These experiences can then be applied to creating transformative student learning opportunities in the classroom. Follow one school district on a journey to blended and personalized professional development. Explore different techniques and strategies, hear tips for successful implementation, discuss ways to overcome barriers, and find a starting point that makes sense for your school or district.

Making Time, Managing Energy: Making it Through the Week Without Running Out
As far as we know, nobody has devised a machine to add time to our day or our week. So, what do you do with the 24 hours you are given? We will discuss and share our personal time management strategies and look at some IT tools for keeping track of our day but the bulk of our time will be spent walking through a process of organizing our day based on Energy, rather than time or priority. If we can focus on what adds energy to our day and what takes energy away, the time falls into place.
