Keynote Presentation: Dr. Eric Hamilton
When we work to integrate technology into our classrooms, what are we really trying to do? For our keynote speaker, Dr. Eric Hamilton, "the holy grail is to find conditions under which students and teachers are routinely engaged in what can be considered flow states while learning — high performance task immersion at the outer edge of ability, with individuals functioning in their own personal zones of creativity and self-regulated learning.
Eric Hamilton is a professor at Pepperdine University, where he carries out research in learning technology innovation and learning environments of the future, primarily under support from the National Science Foundation. He also leads what is called a Innovation in Learning and Education Science Across Virtual Institutes involving about three dozen researchers in the US and Finland. Read more about Dr. Hamilton's work. Dr. Hamilton will speak with us at a dinner crowning our first day of learning on Monday evening, June 17.

Invited Faculty from San Domenico and Leading Schools
Our innovative faculty began piloting widespread use of iPads as digital tools to support student learning shortly after the release of the iPad in 2010. Through comprehensive professional development and classroom experience, our faculty are now leaders in integrating iPads throughout the curriculum. With a full 1-to-1 student iPad program in grades 4-12 and iPad carts and learning stations in early grades, our faculty are uniquely qualified to speak to the opportunities and challenges that come with integrating iPad into daily student use.
Keynote talks, practical hands-on workshops, panel conversations, and small-group mentoring sessions will provide participants with individuated learning opportunities for both broadening perspectives and delving into particular needs. Sessions will be organized in tracks to facilitate effective use of time for faculty of different grade levels, technology professionals, and school leaders.
Learn more about our faculty and what they are doing in the classroom at our blog at ilearning.sandomenico.org. Full program and speaker list coming soon!
Why should you learn about iPads and integrated technology from San Domenico School?
Leadership. San Domenico School is a leader in implementing iPads integrated in the curriculum. Apple recently recognized San Domenico as a 2012-2013 Apple Distinguished School. One key to success we've identified in implementing a 1-to-1 student iPad program is organizational unity and cohesion. Our leadership team of division heads and directors has worked closely with our excellent faculty and our supportive parent community to craft a program that has been successful: even with challenges that are inevitable with any transformational change.
The program committee is made up of leaders from other leading iPad schools, Technology Facilitators from our Primary, Middle, and High Schools and by faculty from all three divisions. In addition to our own faculty, we are inviting curriculum and iPad experts and scholars to create the premier professional development event for schools implementing or considering iPads.
