Feedback form is now closed.
How does Data Integration enable better learning outcomes? Tired of hearing “But how do other schools do it?!” without actually knowing how other schools do it? How does your IT department magically make the seemingly impossible, possible? Do the words Database, API, CSV, Cloud or scheduled jobs peak your interest? Worried your school or district is not ready for IoT, AI, Big Data or any of those new trends? At this session you can ask each other those burning questions!
I will share how we’ve tackled some of our biggest challenges moving from SIRS to PowerSchool at West Island College. I’ll share why we took the risk to build our own Campus Connect website and how it enabled us to innovate and create our unique "Focus Friday" solution.  It enables students choose which Focus Friday program they'd like to join, such as Health Sciences Site field trips, programming, fitness classes, drama, politics and more! This is an example of how data integration allows students, for 1 hour a week, to learn experientially from the experts themselves.
The second half of the session will be a sharing session where members of the session can show off their solutions and strategies and how it’s helped their district.
