I hope you are as excited as I am that the Iowa Student Learning Institute’s RISE conference is tomorrow! Below are a couple details you should know before arriving:
Our hashtag for the day is #IaStuChat
Doors will open at 9am with a large team activity led by students happening until the day kick offs at 10 AM in the auditorium. We invite you to try arriving a little early to take part in these events! You will not need a printed ticket for checkin.
We recommend bringing a device (cell phone, tablet, laptop, etc.). This will enable you to be a part of the #IaStuChat back channel on Twitter, connect with others, check updates throughout the day, and keep notes of your learning.
A free deli sandwich lunch consisting of a water/soda, deli meat sandwich, chips, fruit and a cookie is provided as part of your registration. If you have any dietary restrictions, please let me know.
Parking will be located on the west side of the building.
Dress is casual. Whatever you might wear to school on a normal day should be acceptable.
Check out the conference schedule before you arrive. The schedule can be found at that link or on the Whova app on your phone! Once the app is downloaded, search for and select the “RISE” conference to see details!
In the library in the afternoon, there are the following spotlight sessions I would highly recommend checking out!
RISE: Des Moines Needs You led by Mary Bontrager from The Greater Des Moines Partnership
Students Have a Right To… #sturights by led by Zak Malamed and Erik Martin of StuVoice
#RethinkHighSchool challenge from the XQ Institute led by Aaron Maurer
A screening of the documentary, Most Likely To Succeed, will be shown from 4-6pm. We invite you to stay and watch this documentary and enjoy dinner with us afterwards. I believe it will help summarize and reflect upon your day at RISE.
There is still time to invite your friends and students! We have extended registration through the end of today, Friday, November 6th!
Thank you for registering and taking advantage of this opportunity. We hope you are as excited as us for a day of learning, solutions, and passion. If you have any questions feel free to contact me or checkout the website at iowasli.org/details. Remember, the world needs you!
