Advanced Canvas
Limited Capacity full

I will focus on how to create Quizzes with a major emphasis on FORMULA questions. The formulas involve numbers such that a student can repeat a question many many times. The words are the same but the numbers aren't. Come and be blown away with the possibilities How to use Question Banks, how to create Modules and lock students into completing assignments in sequential order. Embed homework solution videos into canvas. Use external websites for homework and screenshots as proof of success. Oh and so much more.

I suggest you bring a laptop, chromebook, or large tablet or come to just listen.

Industry Engagement: The Key to Pathways
Limited Capacity seats available

We want to build great, authentic learning experiences for our students and know that connecting to industry can help us with that.  Industry partners want early dibs on top notch employees, and know that connecting to education can accomplish that.  Problem is that both parties speak different languages and generally suck at facilitating those connections.  This presentation will provide you with methods for building these partnerships in your classroom, school and district. No treats will be provided, but you will be awarded bonus points if you bring a Mtn Dew for the presenter.
