Keynote–John Collins

8:45 a.m.–9:40 a.m.

Paper Airplanes in Class? Yes!
World Record Holder for Paper Airplane Distance, John Collins, is your guide for a romp through fluid dynamics using paper planes. They flip, flap, circle back, flip over and fly back upside down, tumble, spin, and some seem to fly forever (actual forever may vary). Learn why paper airplanes are a great teaching tool and how to introduce an amazing variety of skills and topics using folded flight. !

Keynote–Zachary Champagne

9:45 a.m.–10:40 a.m.

Talk Less, Listen More
It’s a simple, yet very complex, idea that great teachers do and do well. Genuinely listening to students can yield incredible opportunities for teachers to not only know and connect with their students, but also increase the quality of teaching and learning that happens in the classroom. Join us as we explore the power of listening to students and using that information to inform our instruction. During this session, we will also explore frameworks and strategies that can help provide the supporFve conditions to make this important work happen.

College and Career Readiness by Design: An Early Math UDL Approach
Preparing students for college, career and civic life success begins early. In order for students to earn a living wage as an adult, they must possess the cogniFve and noncogniFve skills necessary to cope with the demands required for jobs that may not currently exist. The universal design for learning (UDL) framework proacFvely and posiFvely impacts the way we, as educators plan for student engagement, understanding, and expression.
