Extraordinary Educator's Conference Meets Today's New K-12 Professional Development Needs Head-On
PETERBOROUGH, N.H., Feb. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- K-12 educators nationwide will soon be invited to attend a professional development conference unlike any they've experienced. Staff Development for Educators (SDE) is delighted to announce its brand-new Extraordinary Educator's Conference, taking place in Chicago, July 20-24, 2013.
The conference is a fresh and timely four-day event that is designed to meet the most current and demanding needs of educators—needs that they have shared with SDE for helping every student become successful. Conference content is aligned with cutting-edge pedagogical thinking and today's evolving classroom technology innovation.
"This event is new. It's fresh. And it's packed with elements that educators have specifically asked us for," says an enthusiastic Kate Maggs, SDE's Program Planning Manager. "With its timely focus on the new Common Core State Standards, the addition of tons of innovative new tech sessions, its cutting edge approaches to thinking about education, and its lively hands-on learning, tech labs, ask-the-expert sessions, and Make and Take projects, it's going to be an unbelievably great four days!"
Far from a one-size-fits-all program, the Extraordinary Educator's Conference will offer 15 different topic "strands," including 21st Century Skills, Common Core State Standards, Assessment, Differentiated Instruction, and much more. When choosing their sessions, attendees can follow an individual strand throughout the conference or mix and match sessions from a variety of strands.The "Cutting Edge" strand is made up of sessions in which educators discuss new and different ideas like Visual Learning or Globalizing Education—sessions that make people think about education and their classrooms in a different way. The "Ask the Expert/Cafe Style" strand is comprised of small intimate sessions in which participants can ask questions and share ideas, while the presenter answers questions and facilitates the discussion.
