Data to Actions - Career Tech Data Analytics
In-Depth discussion regarding how RG Drage Career Center completely transformed how it captures follow-up, certifications and capstone data and then uses that data to make actionable decisions using data analytics. Career Tech centers are typically relying on Google Forms, Excel files to track data for State/EMIS reporting. This process however involves manual collection of data from multiple sources, is labor intensive both for teachers and admin staff, prone to errors and is not very efficient. In addition, it is very difficult to understand broader patterns in data and gather metrics to understand which programs are successful or not. This session will discuss how RG Drage Career Tech Center captures, uses historical data with eMoksha Tracker and Analytics platform. This allows them to produce ready-made metrics and data for EMIS/state reporting with click of a button and results in efficiencies across the board for teachers, administrative staff and executives.

A Radical Shift in Ohio Graduation Pathways

With a major shift in the American Education Policy, there's a need to restructure the ways in which we develop and scale work-based learning. While educators redefine readiness, it's crucial to track both CTE concentrators and state compliancy while putting student success at the forefront. We'll address ESSA, Perkins, and WIOA alignment along with the explosion of “choose your adventure” graduation requirements, and ever-changing legislation. We will foster open dialogue to discuss  what it means for a student to truly be career and life ready with specific examples of how districts and intermediaries are scaling WBL and career pathways.

The Choices We Make: Using Choice Theory/Reality Therapy to Help Students Understand Themselves
In high school, Dan won a national championship for acting...as a mime. He was also nominated for the senior superlative of class clown, but came in second. After his first semester in college he changed his major from Acting because his professor told him he’d never make it because his eyebrows were too expressive for the silver screen.

Dan also never felt like he belonged anywhere. He never felt like he could talk about his struggles as a leader, or even as a human being, for fear of others finding out that he was an impostor. As it turns out he’s not alone, and neither are you.

Dan will share some thoughts and personal stories about not believing the lies of impostor syndrome in an effort to shift our mindsets in order to be brave enough to have the conversations that matter.

Agile Techniques for Project Management - Student Teams with Higher Levels of Transparency and Accountability
The software development industry utilizes many Agile practices to help manage development. Many of these strategies translate nicely into the classroom and provide opportunities for students to work in teams with higher levels of transparency and accountability. These strategies increase collaboration, communication, and can help scale large tasks into smaller, attainable accomplishments. Techniques to be shared include Story Card Wall, Daily Stand Up, 6 Thinking Hats, Paired Programming, Fist to Five, and project time estimation techniques.

Connect Careers to Learning | The answer to “When will I ever use this?”
By answering the age-old question “when will I use this in the real world?” we’re seeing remarkable levels of engagement from students.  Because when a student can see it, they can be it.  

When we connect careers to learning we can collectively close the equity gap in education while increasing the connection between education, employers, and economic development. Educators will learn about the free resources supporting this initiative. Learn about a new career exploration and pathway development system for students in grades 6-12 available to students at no-cost.

Drivers Ed for Students
Free Drivers Ed for Students: The Facts

As both an ODE endorsed Driver Education teacher and a Commercial Driving School Training Manager,
I will guide the attendees step by step through the licensure process with the Department of Public Safety.
Explain S B 166 regarding Driver Education. The misconceptions surrounding the costs of offering 
Driver Education will be covered. Attendees will leave ready to offer FREE Driver Education to their 
students in the Fall of 2022.

I am beyond excited to present on how schools can use their CTE funds to offer Driver Education for their students.
The ability to obtain a driver's license isn't about fitting in, or the stigma that comes from being left out. Teens who have a license will naturally have more opportunities.They're the ones who will have access toa wide variety of jobs, they'll be more likely to obtain and hold a job, and they will have an easier time accessing goods and services.
The disparities between which kids obtain licenses follow predictable racial and economic lines.

The Soft Skills Crisis: Do your graduates have the skills they need for success?
In 1918, Horace Mann asserted that 80% of career success is due to soft skills over technical or academic skills. 100 years later we are still talking about the soft skills gap. 74% of employers continue to state they cannot find graduates with adequate soft skills. What are we doing about it? This session will define soft skills and show how they are aligned to Ohio's career readiness graduation seal and many social and emotional learning programs. It will also demonstrate how you can assess soft skills through self and peer assessment and develop them through experiential learning. We measure what matters. We know soft skills matter and if we continue to fail to strategically teach and measure them, we will be talking about this gap for the next hundred years.
