Revolutionizing Education--Investing in Generation Z
The CDC/SPC Opening Session includes a conference overview, DPI updates, a brief word from our NCACTE representatives and a dynamic speaker. The 1.5 million members of Generation Z in North Carolina know only a world in which technology, social, and cultural shifts happen in months rather than decades. This highly diverse environment will make the grade schools of the next generation the most diverse ever. Higher levels of technology will make significant inroads in academics allowing for customized instruction and accelerated achievement opportunities. Gen Z students communicate differently, are motivated differently, and learn differently. How do we innovate and make our work more applicable and meaningful to today’s students as they grow into tomorrow’s workforce?

Advisory Boards That Matter
For many CTE program administrators and teachers, running advisory boards is simply a matter of compliance to a school or state requirement. Meetings can be routine, mundane and frankly - BORING. Meetings often become events that everyone, teachers and board members, want to get finished as quickly as possible. But in the right hands and with the right structure and formulation, an advisory board can become the lifeblood of an energized program and a school that is well-connected and well-supported by its community. Our presenters, experts in business-education partnerships and CTE leadership, are preparing a guide to best practices in advisory boards. During this session Brett and Hans will preview the guide, providing an overview of the guide's framework, flavored with tips, hints, and real-life applications they have collected.
