An Update About Conclave 2020

During these times of uncertainty, especially with regard to teacher travel, we are continuing to monitor the situation in terms of holding an on-site Conclave currently scheduled for Denver. The safety and well-being of our attendees is paramount to our thinking, as is our ability to produce the high-quality experience that this conference has provided over the years. 

Whether online or in person, Conclave 2020 will occur. Please save the date for October 16-19. Our commitment to you remains the same: to deliver a high-quality conference featuring business leaders and stellar educators. And, we are pleased to welcome DECA AMPED to Conclave 2020!

Try This End-of-Year Activity

With most shopping currently occurring online, the importance of a customer-centric shopping experience is more important than ever. Try this activity and put a twist on it by asking students to evaluate the customer service of several websites. This activity is found within the lesson module (LAP) Accentuate the Positive (Nature of Customer Relations).

Support for Fall 2020

Whether you’re teaching in person or online, we are here to help. Here's a roundup of resources to help you prepare for whatever the future holds:

Celebrate Students While Social Distancing

Celebrating student achievements and the end of the school year while social distancing is new territory—and it requires thinking outside of the box. Here are some ideas:

  • Hold a car parade for students.
  • Invite surprise guests to offer words of encouragement to students during a Zoom meeting.
  • Send surprise yard signs to seniors.
  • Run a virtual ceremony and get creative with attendee participation.
  • Make a social media yearbook.
  • Ask local businesses to recognize students with digital gift certificates.
  • Make an end-of-year video—Flipgrid has great ideas for end-of-year reflection videos, including celebrating learning journeys and classroom memories.
  • Send a letter or e-card—As one teacher notes, students don’t always remember how far they’ve come over the school year. When we remind students of their growth, we can help them remember or see it themselves.

Ready-To-Use Classroom Resource

Use The Gray Zone ethical dilemmas to introduce your students to problems and situations that don’t have one specific right or wrong answer. This week’s Gray Zone topic: The Nature of Knowledge Management.

This Gray Zone comes from the Know Go lesson module (LAP) and aligns to performance indicator KM:001 Explain the nature of knowledge management.
