When an education conference is online and free, it shows sensitivity to educators’ busy schedules and strained budgets. When such a conference is also packed with 70 high-quality presentations from all over the world, that conference is one of my favorites. The Technology Information Center for Administrative Leadership (TICAL), led by Steve Hargadon, brings us this conference tomorrow: The 2013 chool Leadership Summit, March 28, 2013, 6:30 A.M. to 7:00 P.M. PDT.
Visit http://admin20.org/page/schedule to attend, and click on your time zone to view the presentation schedule. Presentations are tagged according to the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) National Educational Technology Standards (NETS) for Administrators to which they are aligned. Over-the-counter data (OTCD) relates to all 5 of these standards, but especially to those concerning vision, learning, and the use of data for systemic improvement and reform.
A presentation specific to OTCD, How Data Systems & Reports Can Either Fight or Propagate the Data Analysis Error Epidemic, and How Educator Leaders Can Help, will take place at 3:00 P.M. PDT. The 1-hour presentation will show attendees how to evaluate their data systems &/or data reports using research-based ways in which these systems can better assist the accuracy with which staff analyze data. I.e., the presentation will cover all components of OTCD. I hope to see you there!
