Thursday Keynote - Catlin Tucker
Common Core: Transforming Teaching & Learning

Many teachers across the nation are groaning at the mention of transitioning to a new set of standards. Most don’t realize the new standards emphasize communication, higher-order thinking, technology integration and literacy, real world application and creative problem solving.

Join author and teacher Catlin Tucker as she shares her enthusiasm for the Common Core.

The shift from breadth to depth is refreshing. Teachers have an opportunity to make learning more relevant and engaging. Technology can empower teachers, allowing them to experiment with PBL, flipped and blended models. When used to complement and enhance traditional instruction, technology makes it possible to cultivate a variety of skills with a single assignment.

Catlin will share photos and student work to demonstrate practical ideas for addressing the Common Core using technology. See how technology can open the door to creatively addressing the standards without adding to your workload. Walk away feeling energized about this shift and eager to explore how you can use technology to transition to the Common Core.

Sir Ken Robinson, PhD is an internationally recognized leader in the development of education,creativity and innovation. He is also one of the world’s leading speakers with a profound impact on audiences everywhere. The videos of his famous 2006 and 2010 talks to the prestigious TED Conference have been seen by an estimated 200 million people in over 150 countries.

He works with governments in Europe, Asia and the USA, with international agencies, Fortune 500 companies and some of the world’s leading cultural organizations. In 1998, he led a national commission on creativity, education and the economy for the UK Government. All Our Futures: Creativity, Culture and Education (The Robinson Report) was published to wide acclaim in 1999. He was the central figure in developing a strategy for creative and economic development as part of the Peace Process in Northern Ireland, working with the ministers for training, education enterprise and culture. The resulting blueprint for change, Unlocking Creativity, was adopted by politicians of all parties and by business, education and cultural leaders across the Province. He was one of four international advisors to the Singapore Government for its strategy to become the creative hub of South East Asia.

For twelve years, he was professor of education at the University of Warwick in the UK and is now professor emeritus.
