Title: Kami – Making the Most out of my Digital Curriculum
Description

Digital curriculum is now the standard for many schools and districts. The problem? Many of those resources are shared in a manner that does not allow for students to truly interact and be engaged with those instructional activities. Because of this limitation, you’re often forced to run paper copies of your PDF student materials. In this session, learn how to pair your curricular materials like Guidebooks 2.0 and Eureka Math worksheets with Kami, a Google App that allows you to assign and manipulate any type of document – PDF included. Participants will receive a free, 90 day trial of Kami’s premium features.

Title: Measuring Digital Resources so that they can be Effectively Managed

With districts spending up to 25% of their annual budget on software and digital content, it is imperative for districts to be able to quantify a return on their investments. The founders of PAPERbasket believe that we can’t make decisions about the effectiveness of the digital content that we purchase until we can accurately measure its usage. Within weeks of implementation of PAPERbasket, districts can start making data-driven decisions based on real-time information. Collectors reside on each device – no need for network appliances – ensuring accurate data is collected anytime, anywhere. Administrators will be able to determine what tools are actually being actively used – not merely being opened and minimized – and how long they’re being used ultimately saving the district money and improving the usage of its investments.

Presenter: Brandon Hairrell, Director of Education Solutions, AXIEDU

Intended Audience: Administrative Leadership, Network Administrators, Data Management, Instructional Leadership, & Curriculum & Innovation
