Welcome/Keynote: Becoming a Marriage Counselor for IT & Curriculum (Ballroom E-H)
Have you ever been involved in a dysfunctional relationship? No communication. Fighting over money. The random breaking of dishes and filters? The world of learning has evolved rapidly in the past decade. Mobile devices. Social Media. OER. Data Privacy. All of these can cause curriculum and IT departments to spiral into a Kayne-vs-Taylor-Swift-type feud.
In Carl Hooker’s interactive keynote, “Becoming a Marriage Counselor for IT & Curriculum,” we’ll break out the virtual couch and discuss our issues with each other...but more importantly...how to resolve them for the betterment of our students. Through his work as Director of Innovation & Digital Learning at Eanes ISD, founder of “iPadpalooza” learning festival, and author of the six-book series titled Mobile Learning Mindset, Carl has seen plenty of successful (and unsuccessful) marriages along the way and will share lessons learned.
