One Word 2019.....

One Word 2019...

For the past few years, I have participated in the #OneWord that will describe my focus for the up and coming year. Usually, my goal is to inspire others. I've been told that inspiration naturally radiates from me. This year I want to go beyond just inspiring others. I want to give others the tools to become motivated, adventurous, knowledgeable, and empowered. It has been a dream of mine to develop an innovative conference for educators.

This past year I have been focusing on obtaining a doctorate in education. My focus for my doctorate has been to become a Teacher Leader in Digital Transformation (a.k.a. Edtech). For my doctorate, I can either choose to do a research project or create something. I have decided to create an Innovative Edtech Conference for my Capstone project. With the help of my PLN iMake-KS is going from a wish to a dream and into reality. So my #OneWord for 2019 is going to be #iMake.

My Dream for iMake-KS:

The Plan:
iMake-KS will be a two-day conference that will be held a year from now in 2020. Date and venue yet to be determined. The conference will have both in-person components as well as virtual components. I will be seeking out educators and students to share their innovative ideas, lessons, projects, etc...

In-Person Components:
  • Sandbox/Play Areas - Hands-on, Experimenting, Exploring, Discovering, Making
  • Student Demonstrations and Presentations
  • Hands-On Workshops
  • Presentations
  • Demonstrations 
  • App Smashing
  • App Slams
  • Ignite Sessions
  • Reflection Areas
  • Global Project Areas

Online Components:
  • Help Sections
  • Recorded Presentations
  • Recorded Demonstrations
  • Online Challenges - Example: Digital Breakouts
  • Stream Presentations, Demonstrations, Sandbox
  • Connection Section
  • Global Projects Planning Section
