  • Vita-Learn Welcome Remarks
  • Presentation of the ISTE Making IT Happen Award: Making IT Happen is an internationally recognized awards program for educators and leaders in the field of educational technology integration in K–12 schools. It identifies and rewards educational technology leaders around the world for their commitment and innovation.
  • Keynote Address: Mapping the Future with Empathy, Equity and Intention: As the role of public education expands, how might we better identify the needs of our students, colleagues, and communities moving forward? And how might we better address the biases — both conscious and unconscious — that threaten our ability to meet those needs? During this interactive keynote, we’ll explore the principles of design thinking — empathy fueled, human centered problem solving — and how we might apply that mindset to more mindful tech-oriented solutions.
