Rethinking Instructional Materials
PreK-12 school districts across the country are rethinking the role that instructional materials play in today’s learning environments. Open Educational Resources (OER)—freely available educational materials that can be downloaded, edited, and shared—provide educators with access to timely and relevant materials that support new standards, shifts in pedagogy, and the desire to be more inclusive. Join this session to learn more about PreK-12 OER in practice and how districts are leading this work.

Ready for Anything - The big picture of what the future needs from teachers
Lesson design is the exact place where best practice, big picture ideas meet classroom realities. It’s the intersection between being ready for anything, and ready for your specific class. For BOLD in 2019, Jonathan will help attendees map out the big picture, AND guide them in how to practically apply best practice to the classroom.

In this interactive 'Ready for Anything' session > We will look at predictions for how many jobs new waves of tech like AI and robotics will impact, understand what this means for learners (and all of us) and tackle questions like ’How can we map the intangible skills needed'?

Conscientious Creativity: Where Creation and Copyright Intersect
Student creation is perhaps the best form of assessment, allowing students to share their thinking and express themselves in a personal way. Often, student creation includes the use of existing resources and, therefore copyright should be considered. Explore the intersection of creation and copyright and discover what educators should know.

Ready for Class - What can future-ready lessons look like?
Ready for Class: Given that helping students be future-proof also makes them a better learner today, what can future-ready lessons look like? Jonathan’s workshop will bring the real by introducing you to 3 amazing free options:
• The bit.ly/spark-empathy project - the free way to boost community and empathy skills in your classroom,
• First Kids on Mars, 2050 - How can you leverage play as well as low-tech and easy-to-acces hi-tech ideas to boost creativity and team-work in your classroom? This program uses the creative scenario of solving problems for a failing Mars colony to take students into deep learning of how to work together and solve problems - and you can learn how to apply our activities to your own students needs in this session and via the 'First School on Mars Teachers Playbook’ (free for BOLD attendees)
• MakeXR - next gen storytelling. Getting you head around new tech as diverse as VR, 360 degree images, AR, 3D objects and holograms as well as managing a busy classroom is a lot to ask - but Make XR gives you an ‘extended reality' framework that explains them all, as well as the lesson workflows and tips to get you started so your students can set themselves apart with next-generation storytelling skills.
