Leading, Learning, Achieving: The Realities of the Digital Age for Administrators
What does effective leadership mean when technology changes the game? New digital ‘techbooks’ arrive on tablets (iPads and others) with cloud-based media DNA: differentiated, embedded and rich as the web. When administrators work to move a site or district to digital, it helps to see what 'digital' really means. The inevitable smarter 'books' have profound implications because when the textbook goes digital, the whole game changes. Learning resources not only touch the cloud, they also becomes their own backpack with cameras, sensors, encyclopedias, and much more. BYOD and new assessment models suddenly make more sense. Evaluating teaching and learning gets new legs. Wrap your mind around these powerful tools.

Springfield Brewing Company Brewery Tour
"Our Story

A staple of the downtown community, Springfield Brewing Company has been in the business of brewing one of a kind, supremely drinkable beers since 1997. Our story really started when the Paul Mueller Company purchased the building, creating a beautiful showcase for their one of a kind stainless steel brewery tanks and changing the landscape of downtown. Their goal was to provide our community with a one of a kind brewpub experience combining local craft beer with great food.

When Ashton Lewis and Bryan Bevel got together along with a group of close friends and purchased the Brew Co. in 2011 it was their mission to continue creating award winning craft brews and working to perfect the menu. Our restaurant takes pride in operating as a scratch kitchen, bringing together fresh and often locally sourced ingredients to create one of a kind dishes.

Our brewery focuses on true to tradition English, German and American style ales and lagers. Over the years we’ve been the proud recipients of Great American Beer Festival awards for many of our beers and most recently took home World Beer Cup gold for our Mayhem Marzen. Our aim is to continue working toward a harmonious balance between food and beer and we think we’re doing a darn good job! So stop in, grab something to eat and try one of our beers fresh on tap!"

Digital Equity Challenges: Strategies for Bridging the Home/School Connection

K-12 education is going digital, but without leadership, clear policies and new strategies, students from the poorest families will be left behind when they leave the school campus.  Some call this the homework gap because 75% of teachers report they assign homework requiring Internet access.  Keith Krueger, CEO of CoSN, the professional association for school district technology leaders/CTOs, will scope the problem and describe how some school districts are undertaking innovative strategies to address the major concern.  At the heart of this challenge is redefining equal educational opportunity in a digital era.

Changing the Conversation from Privacy to Trust

Data privacy is a growing concern for parents.  CoSN’s 2015 IT Leadership Survey of national school district technology leaders found that 57% agreed that privacy and security issues are more important than they were the previous year. Learn about new efforts to change the conversation with increased transparency with the goal of building more trust.  One key initiative is the Student Data Principles which over 40 national education professional associations have signed on which outline ten principles for why we collect data, as well as how we protect it.  Also, CoSN is working with nearly 30 school districts to build a Trusted Learning Environment seal.  Join us for an engaging conversation.
