Thursday Keynote - Dan Meyer
Capturing, Sharing, and Resolving Perplexity

Given the infinite buffet table of tools and technology to try out in the classroom, how do you decide what's worth your and your students' time? Without some kind of criteria guiding our selection, we'll spend years building up a dusty closet of tools that looked good, promised a lot, and didn't deliver. With that in mind, the presenter will describe "perplexity," one of the scarcest resources in the classroom, and how to pick tools and technology to maximize it.

General Session Keynote
LeVar Burton has been capturing the admiring attention of both audiences and his industry peers for three decades, and continues to enjoy longevity truly rare within the industry. His deftness in avoiding stereotype continues to be a hallmark of an incredibly diverse career. Launching his acting career in the groundbreaking role of Kunta Kinte in the landmark television series ROOTS, Burton found himself on the cover of Time Magazine at the age of 19. Shortly thereafter, Burton achieved further global acclaim as Chief Engineer Geordi LaForge in Star Trek: The Next Generation TV series and feature films. From 1983 until 2009, Burton was the host and producer of the beloved Peabody Award winning PBS children’s series, Reading Rainbow. The honored recipient of 12 Emmy Awards, a Grammy and 5 NAACP awards, LeVar has demonstrated in his career that he can do it all, whether acting, directing, producing or writing. No greater proof of his enduring appeal and deep personal connection with his audience is the fact that LeVar is one of the most followed people in the world on Twitter, with over 1.7M followers. 

: All conference attendees are invited to a special General Session Friday morning.

Closing Keynote
Sal Khan is the founder of the Khan Academy, a nonprofit with the mission of providing free, high-quality education to "anyone, anywhere" in the world. A former hedge fund analyst with degrees from MIT and Harvard, Khan is also the author of The One World School House, which explores the potential impact of the web as a teaching tool. It may be one of the most influential books about education in our time.
Khan's journey began when he was helping a young cousin with math in 2004, communicating by phone and using an interactive notepad. When others expressed interest, he began posting videos of his hand-scribbled tutorials on YouTube. Demand took off, and in 2009 he quit his day job. The Khan Academy website now provides self-pacing software and unlimited access to over 5,100 instructional videos on its YouTube channel covering everything from basic arithmetic to college level science and economics. It's the most-used library of educational videos on the web, with 10 million unique students per month, over 300 million lessons delivered amd over 1.4 billion problems completed (~4 Million per day).
Khan's first book, The One World Schoolhouse: Education Reimagined, was published to great acclaim in 2012. Innovators as varied as George Lucas and Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Muhammed Yunus have hailed it as "a must-read." Al Gore had this to say: "Since its founding in 2006, Sal Khan's project -- the Khan academy -- has revolutionized our thinking on the potential and promise of unfettered, open-access online education. In his new book The One World Schoolhouse, Khan presents his vision and blueprint for how online technology can, and should, play an integral role in educating communities across the globe, closing the opportunity gap and providing high-quality education for all."

A growing number of classrooms around the world are using Khan Academy to help build student mastery of topics and to free up class time for dynamic project based learning.
