Islands of Enlightenment
The Islands of Enlightenment Projects allow students in Grades 6-12 to explore 3 main themes:
1. The Understanding the Holocaust Project which gives students a mind's eye look into the tragic history of the Holocaust. Students are immersed into the digitally created streets of Amsterdam 1944. Here students explore 10 Common Core based assignments correlating with the Classic Book, The Diary of a Young Girl: Anne Frank. Students develop skills allowing them to be creators of content rich presentations. Presented by Jill Pallante 2. The Heir of the King Project is designed to help students learn about medieval rules and structures by role playing in a quest based system. Students learn medieval history as well as problem solving and collaboration to help them solve the mystery of the heir of the king. Presented by Mary Howard
3. The Virtual Design Project incorporates the principles of architecture and building that are integral to Frank Lloyd Wright's Darwin Martin House. Students involved in this project are given a Real Life tour of the Darwin Martin House by museum Education Director Gina Neureuther. Then students then explore history, architecture, and artistry to build their own virtual build that other's may explore and interact with. Presented by Gina Neureuther Within each of these projects there are Common Core aligned lessons touching on almost every content area. This program is provided free through the NYSED Technology and Learning Grant.

Meeting College and Readiness Skills Through A Digital Medium for 21st Century Students

Students come equipped with technological skills that need to be embraced in the educational setting. When it comes to effective college and career readiness skills a shift has taken root in the educational world. It is expected that students are well prepared to effectively communicate in a technological driven workforce. It is also expected that students who attend college have the digital literacy skills to effectively manage e-learning. Additionally, personalized education tools that enhance learning with relation to college and career skills are most relevant in educating today's students.

Protecting Against Cyberthreats That Matter to Education
It’s not news that threats are growing across the IT security landscape. Today’s malware imposes significant business risks due to the highly organized nature of attacks – applications, web sites and social networks are all subject to attacks and vulnerabilities. Hackers are highly organized professionals with vast networks who are able to precisely target an unsuspecting victim, including many schools and their employees and their students. During this talk, Mark Villinski will examine what this means for school administrators and what Technology Directors need to look for to stay on top of these threats.
