Keynote Speakers

Karen Cator

President and CEO

Digital Promise, USA

Karen Cator is President and CEO of Digital Promise and a leading voice for transforming American education through technology, innovation, and research. From 2009-2013, Karen was Director of the Office of Educational Technology at the U.S. Department of Education, where she led the development of the 2010 National Education Technology Plan and focused the Office’s efforts on teacher and leader support. Prior to joining the department, Cator directed Apple’s leadership and advocacy efforts in education. In this role, she focused on the intersection of education policy and research, emerging technologies, and the reality faced by teachers, students, and administrators. She began her education career in Alaska as a teacher, ultimately leading technology planning and implementation. She also served as Special Assistant for Telecommunications for the Governor of Alaska. Cator holds a master’s in school administration from the University of Oregon and received the 2014 College of Education Distinguished Alumni Award. The American Association of Publishers has awarded Cator with the 2014 Visionary Award. She received her bachelor’s in early childhood education from Springfield College and received the 2015 Distinguished Alumna award. She is an Aspen Pahara Fellow, the past chair for the Partnership for 21st Century Skills and has served on boards including the Software & Information Industry Association-Education.

Abstract: Over the past several decades, the student population in the United States has grown increasingly more diverse. More recently, research from the learning sciences has advanced our understanding of learner variability and the importance of grounding educational practice in the individual, rather than the fiction of an average student. Additionally, technological innovation has moved closer to realizing the promise of evidence-based personalization. A deep belief in the urgent need to address learning equity gaps drives us to ask: How might we improve the quality and precision of personalization in order to support the full diversity of learners in the new world of technology supported teaching and learning? And, how might we increase research use in the design, development, and improvement of education programs, products, and practices?

Baby Steps: Scaffolding Teachers’ Uses of Innovative Learning Pedagogies

ABSTRACT: Helping teachers achieve real gains in the use of innovative learning strategies requires teacher change on multiple fronts: adopting new strategies for engaging students’ interests, facilitating new roles for both teachers and students, and supporting student agency throughout the problem-solving/learning process. Unfortunately, achieving these gains is not easy; we need to begin by building teachers’ capacity – in all aspects of innovative learning – for them to be successful.  Further, in order to sustain these changes, we need to support teachers’ initial small steps toward these bigger changes. In this presentation I describe ways to initiate and sustain the change process via small strategy adjustments that, over time, can lead to impactful student learning outcomes.

Dr. Peggy A. Ertmer is Professor Emerita of Learning, Design and Technology at Purdue University. Her research interests relate to technology integration, teacher beliefs, and innovative learning pedagogies, including case- and problem-based learning methods. She is the founding editor of the Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, an open-access, peer-reviewed journal, published by Purdue Press, and is co-editor of four editions of the ID CaseBook: Case studies in instructional design. Dr. Ertmer served as a content expert for a series of videos (http://www.edutopia.org/video/five-keys-rigorous-project-based-learning) about project-based learning for Edutopia, a George Lucas Educational Foundation. She has published over 75 peer-reviewed articles and has been cited nearly 25,000 times on Google Scholar.  Dr. Ertmer was selected to join the 2015 Class of AERA Fellows.

Charles Miller

Chief Design Officer

Flipgrid, USA

Simplicity over complexity

Abstract: How did a modest tool built for 12 PhD students spark the largest early round venture investment in the state of Minnesota, ignite social learning in more than 50,000 classrooms across 137 countries, and empower voice in millions of PreK to PhD students on all seven continents? The answer is simple. Well… simplicity. Join Dr. Charlie Miller as he shares a story of design, failure, opportunity, inspiration, student empowerment, and the world’s most creative educator — you.

Dr. Charles Miller is the Cofounder and Chief Design Officer of Flipgrid, a Minneapolis company focused on enabling video-driven social learning in classrooms and enterprises around the world. Dr. Miller is also an Associate Professor in the College of Education and Human Development and former founder and Executive Director of the Institute for Design Innovation at the University of Minnesota (UMN). In 2012 Miller cofounded Flipgrid, an asynchronous video communication platform for use in his PhD design courses. Today, Flipgrid is used in more than 30,000 classrooms and by 1000s of organizations and enterprises across 136 countries on 7 continents. From Harvard to the World Health Organization, the Boy Scouts of America to Microsoft, and Orange County Public Schools to Medtronic, Flipgrid has transformed active video collaboration based on a single founding principle: Community is built at the point where our stories intersect. The technology, research, and design sparked the creation of Flipgrid, Inc., established in February 2015, that closed a $17 million Series A round to drive future expansion and adoption of Flipgrid in the education technology and enterprise learning development markets.

Miller’s research explores the transformation of education, communication, and collaboration through design, bridging the gap between aesthetic learning experiences and contemporary interaction design.
