Overview

You may rarely have a chance to step out of your office and focus on professional development. So when you do, make it count. In just three days at Ignite ’16, you will make valuable connections, learn proven leadership techniques, and take home practical solutions to carry you and your school to success. With the increasing demands of student assessments, teacher evaluations, and new state standards, you need the guidance and inspiration that can only be gained at a national conference filled with education leaders. This February, join your peers in Orlando and not only enhance your capacity to lead—but rediscover your passion.

Speakers

The presenters at Ignite ’16 have walked a mile in your shoes. The experiences they have to share can give you the kind of detailed insight you need to enact real change in your own school. These leaders have tackled the very challenges you seek to address, such as closing the achievement gap, building staff leadership capacity, and enhancing engagement between students, parents, teachers, and administrators. At Ignite ’16, learn from their real-world experiences and go home with actionable ideas and concrete plans.

Networking

The collective wisdom of educators is invaluable. At Ignite ’16, middle level and high school leaders come together to exchange insight and experiences, allowing them to bring home practical solutions that will drive their schools to success. When so many school administrators are in one place, it’s easy to make lasting connections and expand your professional learning network. Come to Ignite ’16 to exchange stories, lessons learned, and strategies for success. There is nothing more valuable than learning from the experiences of leaders who face the same things you do and can share their unique approaches and ideas.

Exhibit Hall

Innovation abounds in the Ignite ’16 exhibit hall, where leading-edge education companies will work with you one-on-one to develop personalized solutions to address your daily needs. Discover the latest products, services, and technology tools that are transforming schools around the country and learn how they can benefit your students, staff, and school. Time spent in the exhibit hall is sure to send you home with the tools and solutions you need to propel your school to success.

Thought Leaders

Robert Putnam, professor of Public Policy at Harvard University, will send Ignite ’16 attendees home armed with ideas from his newest book, Our Kids: The American Dream in Crisis. Putnam will offer possible approaches to narrowing the opportunity gaps increasingly faced by young people, including the roles that schools and educators can play in areas such as parental coaching, extracurricular activities, and mentoring.

Unconventional Learning

NASSP Edcamp

Edcamp events bring together K–12 educators for collaboration and learning. Back by popular demand, NASSP Edcamp will provide five hours of spirited and unbridled collaboration. With no preset agenda, you will be free to tackle the issues keeping you up at night and hash out innovative solutions with your peers.

Hackathons

Traditionally seen in the tech world, Hackathons bring people together to conquer specific challenges through creative problem solving. Ignite ’16 will host two Hackathons—one for middle level leaders and another for assistant principals—where participants will divide into groups to tackle some of the most pressing education issues of the day.

Learning Labs

In just 20–30 minutes you will learn about new and innovative solutions and enjoy lively exchanges about emergent education topics.

Technology Studio

Break out your smartphone or tablet and get ready to learn how the latest tools, apps, and technology are advancing the learning process and impacting schools.

Social Media, Educators, and Digital Footprints Panel

In this digital age, there is no longer a question when it comes to social media: Educators must be fully prepared and equipped to handle any potential ramifications arising from such widespread online exposure. Join this panel of experts for an informative discussion on social media’s impact on school leaders. Participants will learn how to prepare and guide teachers in the use of social media, real life situations affecting teachers and principals who use social media, and the legal implications for schools and districts.

The State of American Education Panel

Several contentious debates continue to emerge throughout the education sector with major implications for students and educators. Some of these debates stem from the implementation of the Common Core State Standards, the role of high-stakes testing, the shift to online assessment platforms, the efficacy of teacher evaluation systems, school choice movements, and disagreements over how the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) should be reauthorized. This panel will expose Ignite ’16 attendees to an engaging and thought-provoking discussion on these topics and more while also providing them with an opportunity to ask difficult questions on these controversial issues.

Middle Level Perspective

The Knowledge, Courage, and Moral Imperative to Lead
Rick Wormeli, National Educational Consultant

Middle school students are unique and require informed leaders who provide developmentally appropriate learning. In our march toward simplistic accountability measures, however, we drift away from truly successful middle level practices. Join us for a provocative look at what we know today about middle level learning and the leader’s role in making it happen. We’ll take a look at effective practices and build the courage to bring them to life in our buildings. Not for the faint hearted, this address calls for candor and a moral imperative to do what’s right by the next generation of amazing thinkers.
