USING TECHNOLOGY TO TRANSFORM LEARNING
2021 KEYNOTE SPEAKERS
August 11th Keynote:
Improving Performance Through Metacognition
There was one secret Michael Bonner withheld from the producers for the Ellen Degeneres Show and NBC Nightly News. Before he fell into the national spotlight as an advocate for education, he was determined to quit teaching. The toxicity of the work environment and the mounting responsibilities were beginning to take a toll. Bonner found himself projecting blame upon everyone else until he read a quote that changed the trajectory of his life. In this keynote, Michael Bonner breaks down important principles of environment & culture, the importance of purposeful collaboration, and how self-development can create a higher level of performance.

August 12th Keynote:
Developing Core Beliefs: How to tether yourself to education
New initiatives, a focus on compliance, and sheer exhaustion can lead to a disengagement with the education profession. This is where I was several years ago. Using storytelling as the vehicle to guide the audience through this experience, this keynote addresses the journey I took from a disengaged teacher to a passionate professional, the core beliefs I developed along the way, and how educators at all levels can re-engage themselves to be the rockstars they strive to be for their learners.
