School Leadership Summit -- Process Education: Effective Communication, Reaching Every Person
Connecting with others, building relationships, and creating positive classroom/school/district culture starts with communicating effectively. During this session you will hear about the impact Process Education, a research-based communication model, has on students, teachers, and administrators. The benefits of Process Education include techniques to manage classrooms, schools, and districts; and to individualize teaching, meetings, and professional developments through communication strategies, reaching every person. These strategies can be used face-to-face and online.

Classroom 2.0 LIVE -- Building 21st Century Classrooms with the Common Core
Common Core learning standards, 21st century learning, global collaborations, and project-based learning (PBL) go hand-in-hand. During this webinar, we will present how the four of these complement each other in the classroom; and how the teacher, Common Core coach, Technology Integration Specialist, and Technology Director can nurture that 21st century, student-centered learning environment.
During this webinar, we'll explore the depth of the Common Core Reading, Writing, and Speaking and Listening Standards that takes place in 21st century learning, through the examples shared throughout the session. We'll also investigate the evidence of success through district-level data, learning artifacts, and student reflections

University of Kentucky's Next Generation Leadership Academy -- Using Technology to Transform Learning
"This webinar will be led by Tracy Watanabe who is the Technology Integration Specialist for the Apache Junction Unified School District, in Apache Junction, Arizona. AJUSD is a district that was very traditional, and transitioned to a district with one-to-one learning in grades 7-9, and innovative learning, reaching beyond the four classroom walls, K-12. During this webinar, Tracy will share what they did, how they did it, and their results. This session should be very relevant for any school. All schools considering how they can use technology to transform their schools will benefit from this session." -- Dr. Nick Sauers, CASTLE 1 to 1 Schools

2013 School Leadership Summit -- Using Instructional Rounds to Create 21st Century Schools
Instructional Rounds, based on the work of Elizabeth City, Richard Elmore, Sarah Fiarman, and Lee Teitel, are a form of walkthoughs, district improvement strategies, data collection, and team building/networking. They are not for teacher evaluation, but rather for systemic improvement. The four steps in instructional rounds are to identify the problem of practice, observation, debrief, and focus on the next level of work. The discussion of 21st century learning can enter at any or all steps of the process.

During this session, we will discuss what Instructional Rounds are, a few examples of rounds and how rounds can build a collaborative, inquiry-based culture focused on 21st century, student-centered learning.
