Managing Change for School Improvement by McREL International
Strong leaders, even when focusing their change initiatives on the right school and classroom practices, can have a negative impact on achievement if they fail to understand the implications for stakeholders. This assertion is the underlying basis for this presentation. Participants will understand McRELês Leadership responsibilities associated with first- and second-order change and the four phases of change: Create Demand, Implement, Monitor and Evaluate, and Manage Personal Transitions.

Changing the Odds for Student Success: What Matters Most

During this presentation, McREL International will introduce the What Matters Most Framework. The What Matters Most Framework identifies those areas that, when addressed properly, are most likely to have positive effects on student access. Stated differently, they are high-leverage, high-pay-off areas for school systems. Briefly, the components of the framework, which we describe in the presentation are as follows: Guarantee challenging, engaging, and intentional instruction; Ensure curricular pathways to success; Provide whole-child student supports; Create high-performance school cultures; Develop data-driven, "high-reliability" systems.

Curating Community Partnerships for STEM Related Technologies
This presentation will provide a window into the workings of a trial course that is demonstrating methodologies for integrating community partnerships with three STEM technologies. This project is an extension of the Modern Blanket Toss Project (modernblanketoss.org), a 3 year research grant establishing methodologies for bringing drone technologies into after school programs for underserved youth. Connections Public Charter School's after school program, Studio Shaka, is participating in this trial course. The presentation will relate to charter schools because it represents a model for training staff to work with students and community members and it introduces administrators to the powerful Hapara workspace backbone where curricula for the project resides.

High Tech Youth
The High Tech Youth is a network of afterschool studios that began in New Zealand and is expanding to include other countries in the Pacific region. These studios, their staff and the communities they serve are connecting both physically and virtually to share knowledge and collaborate on meaningful projects that promote their cultural and creative capacities. Staff from each of the studios in New Zealand, Samoa, Fiji and Hawaii meet online on a regular basis through video chats. They discuss projects, plan collaborations and share learning experiences. An online portal (The Haps) has been in use since 2006. This powerful tool for collaboration facilitates communication and the sharing of resources, skills, and ideas.
