9:45 Discussion 1 –
Digital Citizenship (Claire Wachowiak and Brycen Davis IICS)
This could be about keeping students safe online, grade level appropriateness, how other schools are 
handling this, getting parents involved…
10:30 Coffee Break
10:40 Discussion 2 – Advantages of Social Networks for Professionals (Claire Wachowiak IICS)This discussion could focus on the benefits of staying connected as professionals, giving and getting ideas regarding

tech and education, asking questions… maybe setting up a Facebook page or Twitter hashtag…

11:30 Coffee Break – Video “Education 2.0” http://youtu.be/Qd6ydh6v8SU – A video that meshes the ideas of
Ken Robinson, Don Tapscott, and Jim Slotta into a conversation about learning, and how and why
the learning model is changing in the 21st Century.
11:40 Discussion 3 –
Student Tech Crews – Metin Ferhatoglu and Erica Hoffman (Robert College)
12:20 Lunch
13:15 Discussion 4 –
Edmodo Setup and instruction – Brentson Ramsey – David Mearns – Caroline Lewicky and Tom Johnson
This can be a platform for us to collaborate, collect resources, and share with students and peers.
It has an intuitive feel, like Facebook, but with limited abilities (No chatting or walls) that teachers would 
probably agree is best practice for some classrooms.
