The Role of School Leadership in Mitigating Cybersecurity Risk

Presenter: Alex Inman & Shandor Simon 
Thursday, September 19, 2019
3:00 pm - 4:00 pm (central) 

Audience: Administrators

Independent schools reported a 90% increase in negative impacts as a result of cybersecurity incidents between 2017 and 2018. While the IT department can be an important ally, this work must be managed by senior leadership and should be part of a broader risk management strategy. Hear about challenges independent schools have experienced and learn to develop a strategy and road map to address these risks.

Alex Inman is the founder of Educational Collaborators (EC), a global edtech consulting and professional learning firm.  EC is a partner of companies such as Google, Microsoft, Lenovo, HP, CDWG, Best Buy and others. A 20 year veteran of independent schools, Alex has been a classroom teacher, edtech coordinator, and CIO. In 2012, The National School Board Association named Inman as the first independent school educator on their “20 to Watch” list of national education leaders.
 

Shandor Simon serves as the director of technology at the Latin School of Chicago. In his tenure at Latin, Simon has focused on technology infrastructure, databases, technical support, educational technology, and computer science. He led the effort to build a JK-12 Computer Science program and create a Makerspace. Prior to joining Latin in 1999, he worked at the University of Chicago, including four years at the University of Chicago Laboratory Schools where he was the first full-time technology employee and built the Information Systems department from the ground up.  He serves on the board of the Lake Michigan Area Independent Schools (LMAIS), the CybatiWorks Advisory Board, and the Blackbaud K-12 Advisory Board.

3:00 pm - 4:00 pm (central)

The rate of headship transition appears to be on the rise. Often, the head's exit is the result of a failed relationship between the head and board chair. Hear from two association executives, former heads of school now serving as counsel to heads and boards, about the essential steps to maximize the possibility that the head/board-chair partnership will be strong and enduring. Learn about relevant national and regional data, consider wisdom gleaned from experienced heads and independent school consultants, and collect recommendations for reading.

Why Our Children Must Draw - CANCELLED

3:00 pm - 4:00 pm (central) 

This webinar has been cancelled. If this webinar should be rescheduled, ISACS will alert the membership. If you have any questions, please contact the ISACS Office at (312) 750-1190.  
 

Audience: Faculty * Administrators * Parents (early childhood & lower school)

One of the greatest treasures is a glimpse into the thought process of innovative thinkers. We pour over Leonardo da Vinci’s notebooks and are drawn in by Beatrix Potter’s sketchbooks. We are captivated by drawings and doodles of children as their imaginations and what-ifs take shape. Yet, for digital natives, time is seized by electronic apps while crayons, markers, and colored pencils are less present. Children, who once sketched with abandon, now navigate electronic palettes that effortlessly generate a depiction that meets the creator’s expectations. Current research demonstrates that drawing increases memory, engenders complex thinking, regulates emotions, and fosters unexpected connections. Learn how sketching, doodling, and diagramming enhance children’s visual, kinesthetic, and semantic pathways. Be inspired to put a sketchbook and writing implements in children's hands.

Lisa Wright, EdD serves as the director of The Hollingworth Center, a program within the department of curriculum and teaching at Teachers College, Columbia University. Under Wright’s leadership the Center develops model programs and offers enriched educational services for graduate students, educators, and children. She is also on the faculty in the department of curriculum and teaching at Teachers College, teaches graduate courses, supervises student teachers, and co-directs an summer institute for teachers and administrators on responsive curriculum and pedagogy. She holds a masters in educational theater from New York University and a doctorate in curriculum and teaching from Teachers College, Columbia University.

Classroom Strategies for Executive Skill Development 

Presenter: Peg Dawson 
Wednesday, January 22, 2020
3:00 pm - 4:00 pm (central) 

Audience: Faculty * Administrators

Executive skills are critical to the acquisition of academic skills, but, more importantly, they are the skills students need to get things done. Skills such as task initiation, sustained attention, working memory, planning, organization, and goal-directed persistence are critical to school success. Some students seem to acquire executive skills naturally, but many students struggle. Dawson, co-author of the books, Smart but Scattered and Smart but Scattered Teens, will provide an overview of these essential skills and will suggest three strategies teachers can use to help students of all ages grow their executive skills. This webinar is for K-12.

In over 40 years of clinical practice, Dr. Peg Dawson has worked with thousands of children and teens who struggle at home and in school. At the center of their struggles are often weak executive skills. Along with her colleague, Dr. Richard Guare, she has written numerous books on this topic for educators, mental health professionals, and parents, among them Smart but Scattered, Smart but Scattered Teens, Executive Skills in Children and Adolescents, and Coaching Students with Executive Skills Deficits. Dawson is also a past president of the National Association of School Psychologists, and the International School Psychology Association, and is a recipient of NASP’s Lifetime Achievement Award.
