Brainstorm 2017 has ended

Welcome to the Brainstorm 2017: Future Ready Students conference website.

PLEASE NOTE:  Using this tool to mark your personal scheduling preferences does not reserve a seat for marked sessions, nor does it register you for the conference.  

We do not plan to have paper programs available on site.
 If you would like a printed program, select the printer icon to the right to print a personal copy.  

Brainstorm 2017 is held in a public space, therefore we do not prohibit participants, exhibitors, sponsors, or news organizations from photographing conference activities.

Tired of the same old ways to teach sight words? Let’s explore some new, interactive ways to brighten up your sight word instruction with some help from our favorite apps. Your kids will be excited to practice sight words and you’ll be proud to send some creative ways home to practice. Get ready to put those paper word sorts, and definitely those pencils, on the back burner for awhile. Our hope is that you'll find some ideas to breathe some life into your sight word or vocabulary instruction. Instead of dreading these words on a weekly basis, let's have some fun with them!!
