Flipped Professional Development with TechSmith
Sure, professional development can be painful - but it doesn't have to be! Learn how you can take control of your own learning and leverage the expertise of your colleagues (and perhaps more importantly, students) to build a model that breaks the 'one size fits all' mold of PD as we know it. This session will focus on using video to create PD modules, but just like in the flipped classroom - it's not all about the videos. It's about building a learning community that continues to support teacher development beyond just a half day in-service here and there.

This session will feature the use of TechSmith screencasting tools like Jing, Camtasia, and Snagit to create and share videos to YouTube, but any screencasting software or video hosting platform can be used.

Securly - Integrate cloud based web filtering into GAFE
Securly is the first web filter that has been designed from the ground up for schools. If you have 1to1 Chromebooks, iPads, Android tablets or a BYOD environment learn how Securly can make the EDU environment safer for students and easier for administrators.  Being completely cloud based and with GAFE integration, it takes five minutes to set up per district and costs a fraction of the enterprise solutions that schools are forced to pay for today.
Securly protects students on computers throughout the school and at home while giving them safe access to 21st century learning tools like YouTube, Google and Wikipedia. No hardware. No software.
