The Free and Online 2014 School Leadership Summit Starts Wednesday! (Full Session List)

Our second annual School Leadership Summit is this week, and we hope you will consider joining us for some or many of the 60+ free online presentations and keynote addresses. We have had such an enthusiastic response to this event that we have expanded the conference this year: we will start Wednesday afternoon/evening and go through Friday mid-day (US Time).

A full list of the speakers and topics is included at the end of this message. We hope it gets you excited to attend! The conference is held in the online platform Blackboard Collaborate, and instructions for joining any sessions and to find the schedule in your own time zone are at http://admin20.org/page/schedule.

Tell a Friend / Colleague

The conference is open to ALL, so please tweet, blog, email, or shout at your friends and colleagues to let them know about us.

We have some great new features this year!
  • We have gotten much more mobile-friendly, as there are Collaborate apps for iOS and Android, and the conference schedule and session links can be easily accessed on mobile devices by going to http://www.admin20.org from your mobile device or clicking on the "mobile schedule" link in the Summit menu. You're going to be amazed at how easy it is to participate in a session without being bound to your desktop.
  • We have a live chat and help area which you can access from the conference menu or by going to theconferencelounge.me. It's a great way to continue conversations with other participants or to ask for help or advice.
  • We'll be tweeting out a reminder about an hour before for each conference session with each of the session links. If you want to follow those tweets, you can either track the conference hashtag #ticalsls14 or you can follow the Learning Revolution Twitter account at @learnrevproject.

We kick off the conference with two special pre-conference speakers on Wednesday night: Bill Brennan, one of last year's keynote speakers returns as a "distinguished speaker" at 4pm US-Pacific / 7pm US-Eastern Time; and Eric Sheninger is our first conference keynote speaker at 5pm US-Pacific / 8pm US-Eastern. Then the official conference opening keynote will be with Pam Moran and Ira Socol at 7am US-Pacific / 10am US-Eastern, followed by sessions until Friday at 12noon US-Pacifc / 3pm US Eastern. Scott McLeod is our mid-day keynote speaker on Thursday, and Mike Lawrence and Mike Muir serve as closing keynote speakers Friday in the last hour. More information on all of these great folks at http://admin20.org/page/keynotes.

Volunteers:

We can't say enough about the AMAZING conference volunteers who help to moderate conference sessions. (You are all terrific!) If you have the time we encourage you to be a conference volunteer--we need your help! More information at http://admin20.org/group/volunteers.
