Digital Content Access and Delivery for Teachers in Palm Beach
For many years, Palm Beach has provided digital resources and digital lesson plans to the classroom teachers, but the system became antiquated and non-supported. In the FY16 school year, a new system was introduced which enabled many new features that are provided to the teachers. Continued development is occurring to further enhance the system. During the 1st year, the system had 217 active courses with 725,000 lessons loaded and over 2.1 million documents accessed. The successful rollout was completed with minimal professional development/training required. This session will provide an overview of the implementation in Palm Beach.

Digging Deeper Into FL CODE/Ed-Fi
The mission of Florida CODE is to provide a modern data infrastructure to greatly simplify the integration and use of education data at all levels (district, school and classroom). The Florida Collaborative on Operational Data for Educators (CODE) was founded to make multiple sources of attendance, discipline, grades, and assessment data available for all educators in one location. Each district within Florida CODE is provided with modified versions of the Ed-Fi operational data store and dashboards that have been customized to store and report Florida  data. The system is based upon the widely adopted CEDS-aligned ED-Fi data Standard. Technology components of the Ed-Fi implementation Suite build from the Data Standard and incorporate community input and field-tested solutions to provide technology that is already developed and freely available to the ed tech sector. This enables education agencies to connect and maintain secure data systems more easily and cost effectively. This session will provide a technical overview for the interchanges and processes that are used to populate the operational data store, data warehouse, and dashboards.

Low-Tech Classroom Management for Your High-Tech School: Getting What You Want From Digital Natives the First Time You Ask
Flipped classrooms, technology integration and 1:1 programs are designed to engage digital natives in deeper learning while saving teachers and administrators time. Yet even in high-tech schools, educators on average are losing 5-9 hours a week on lower-level discipline challenges. Teachers: Wouldn't you rather spend your time planning and delivering powerful, technology-rich lessons than managing pesky behaviors? Academics and discipline go hand in hand. You can be the best content instructor, with the latest in technology resources, but without the ability to control the classroom, the best lessons remain underliverred. Adminitrators: Classroom management has been rated the most important variable when implementing and sustaining any technology initiative. Classroom management (or lack of) can make or break your ability to move forward as a tech-savy school. You do not need to spend any more money on digital curricula, fancy devices, or trendy experts to increase student performance until you have given your teachers the world-class classroom management training they need to create calm, quiet, happy, high-performing environments in which students can excel. In this session, participants will learn how to avoid the "debate bait" - how to eliminate warnings and multiple requests. Your school can increase academics, decrease discipline challenges, gain parent support, and empower all educators to effectively use the technology resources they've been given. Take-aways will include strategies and techniques that will change your classroom and campus climate immediately. Educators like you have reduced their discipline challenges by over 70% using these tips, and you can too!

Building a Foundation for Personalized Learning
Giving students flexible and personalized learning options offers a myriad of challenges from a technology standpoint. Whether offering videoconferencing, Interactive learning applications or learning labs, most schools find that the underlying storage infrastructure is inadequate to handle new demands. Most personalized learning initiatives require reliable access to data  and content as well the ability to support a wide range of devices and remote learning options. Fundamentally, these technologies demand a storage infrastructure that is optimized to meet new requirements - flash storage. In education, limited budgets make every technology decision count. With the price of disruptive flash technology coming down, you can re-purpose infrastructure dollars that went toward an endless cycle of break-fix, re-purchasing and forklift upgrades. Modern storage is not just affordable, but resilient. Schools rest easy knowing that they'll always have the latest storage technology and a consistent payment schedule that has no suprises. No matter what applications you choose to run on faster and better infrastructure, you can expect better outcomes. Learn about the achievements many customers have realized, like one private university in the Pacific Northwest that reversed dwindling student enrollment or another in Texas that was able to give students access to 35 essential engineering applications and 3D programs. Join us and learn how great storage can lead to greater new possibilities in education.

Determine Curriculum Before Technology and Design
K-12 curriculum is changing rapidly. New common core standards and related assessments have an impact on what and how we teach, as well as how we test. These changes have also created an opportunity to harness updated methods of instruction, classroom design, and technology. However, it is vitally important for instruction, design, and technology groups to work together, ensuring the most appropriate resources are available and actually used. This presentation will cover the latest AV technology strategies for a variety of learning environments, providing decision makers with valuable insight to support their specific standards and goals.

Top 4 Security Items that are Commonly Ignored by K12 Infrastructures
Whenever we start anything new in our professional lives, i.e., Job, Roles, or Projects, we should always ask ourselves, "What's Different Now?" This is especially true when addressing K12 Information Security. So for K12 Security, what's Different Now? 1) The access to, and the volume of, online content (both good and bad) is exploding... 2) Tried and True Security technologies are on the border of obsolescence... 3) The front lines of the Security Battle is no longer at a distant land, it's at your doorstep... The result: It's getting harder to keep students safe while supporting virtual tidal wave of demands by administrators, teachers, and students alike. What can you do? We've found the top key Security Measures that are commonly ignored by K12. We'll discuss why they are important, how they help, and what questions you may want to start asking as you review your own risk postures. While most security presentations focus on the latest bad news, this presentation will focus primarily on solutions rather than problems.

Look Ahead: Why You Should Accelerate the Adoption of Technology
IT staff in education are often leading technology innovation and are constantly seeking new technologies being developed outside their community – driven by forces such as digital business and the consumerization of IT.

Despite the seemingly ubiquitous nature of today’s technology, less than 30% of US schools have the bandwidth they need to teach using technology, including interactive access to the Internet. From this increasing demand for connectivity to balancing agility, openness and security, education CIOs and IT staff are faced with growing challenges and an ever-increasing rate of change.

This session will help educators and IT staff understand how to put the right technologies in place to not only provide students with an enhanced learning experience but increase productivity and cut costs. Extreme Networks’ K12 Education Specialists will address IT challenges associated with the introduction of new Technologies and associated IOT.

Overcoming the Hidden Obstacles of Going Google with Next-Gen IAM
As schools face increasing pressure to modernize their classrooms and curricula, Google environments - such as Google Apps, Google Classroom, and Google Chromebooks - are becoming increasingly central to this strategy. Web-based education apps and 1:1 Chromebook initiatives are no longer a vision of the future, but more and more, are becoming an integral part of the modern, digital classroom. However, effectively managing identity and access for these environments is not as simple as one might think. The vision of the digital classroom can quickly turn into a headache if a large-scale migration to the Google environment occurs without the right identity and access management (IAM) tools in place. A Next-Gen IAM solution makes this move easier and more manageable, without requiring Active Directory changes or custom coding, as well as enables an ideal level of granularity and control within the Google environment. Identity Automation and New Caney Independent School District discuss the challenges of a move to the Google environment and how putting the right IAM infrastructure in place empowers school districts to support the Google information requirements, without having to re-engineer Active Directory.

Assessment & Analytics: What Does the Road Forward Look Like?
A well crafted digital learning ecosystem has the potential to assist in transforming the learning environment to a student-centered approach. As districts continue to move to an integrated technology ecosystem for personalized learning great progress has been made via the adoption of interoperability standards from IMS Global, but there is still more work to be done to close the gap and achieve a prescriptive, personalized learning ecosystem. To reach this goal, much of the work lies with the deep integration of assessments and analytics. A panel of districts will discuss the current status of their edtech ecosystems to personalize learning and share their goals and vision for the future. This session will also provide an update on the work of the IMS Global member community to create solutions using LTI, aQTI, Thin Common Cartridge and OneRoster to enable fully integrated e-assessment and analytics.

Using Formative Assessment to make changes in instruction in real time

DQ2

The Florida Department of Education is working to develop a server-based system that will allow school districts to, as an option, submit their survey data files (for all surveys) to a data quality program (DQ2) that will run all data checks (reject edits, validation edits, and exception edits) and provide both error report files and an online interface for users to review any data errors. This data quality check system may be used prior to submitting data files to Northwest Regional Data Center. This presentation will provide a system demonstration, an overview of the schedule for testing and availability to school districts, and answer questions related to the DQ2 project.
