Big Publishers: Can the Spanish Armada transform into the British Fleet?
Can big publishers change enough to address how today’s students learn, educator’s teach, and shifting business models associated with both? In the US textbook market we have three very large players. Big publishers have process, coordination, and business accountability issues which are far less of a hindrance to smaller organizations. The result is that larger organizations can’t change quickly. While all publishers are concerned with make quarterly numbers and hitting academic deadlines a large corporate infrastructure while necessary for a large organization limits the ability of that organization to adapt to market demands.
How does the move from print to digital look different for large publishers versus smaller organizations? Schools continue to adopt instructional resources and either ask that the electronic version be included with the print, ask for a class set of print and a digital version for students, or only want the digital version… sometimes only a few chapters! We will discuss how publishers, small and large, can make it through this morass and emerge successfully in a digital first world. We’ll touch on tools and technical standards that can ease this transition.
Take a seat at as guests take a bite out of questions like:
What role are big publishers playing in the future?
What opportunities does this leave for smaller organizations?
Is it sustainable to provide both print and digital assets?
Is it the job of the publisher to lead innovation or to reflect innovation and change?

I am an actor, filmmaker and now I am pleased to say new author from Glasgow, Scotland. My first book gerrity's law was published on paper back but hardly sold any copies so I am giving kindle a try. My favourite authors are dean koontz, graham masterton, the late James Herbert and Stephen king. I try to make every book different from the last and take the reader on a wild ride. Intellectual escapism I fondly call it if that doesn't sound too pretentious!

School is Where Your Brain is: The Home-School Connection
Historically, learning took place throughout all aspects of a child’s life. Maybe not traditionally, maybe it’s in the distant past with the advent of school, but many made an assumption that that is where learning takes place as opposed to outside of school. Increasingly we recognize that learning really takes place regardless of where a child is. However, our educational institutions have been challenged to recognize learning, in less formal environments.
In this show we’ll look at the connection between formal and informal learning and the relationship between the institution of school and other educational opportunities.
Michael Jay and ETT Guests will contemplate the following questions:
How has the nature of homework changed in the last decade?
What is the present day relationship between formal and informal learning for pre-K 12 students?
What role do Badges and other methods of recognizing performance outside of school play in making institutional change?
For those institutions that are pursuing personalized learning what strategies are they using to incorporate the whole child into that process?
How can publishers accommodate and take advantage of these shifts (changes) in the home-school connection in their products and other offerings?

Public schools are closing in cities across America and the ones that remain open are questionable when it comes to offering relevant information and preparation for life in a safe learning environment. But whereas public schools have often been dismal failures in America's urban areas, private, culturally based schools have had tremendous success. What is the missing ingredient. Haki and Safisha Madhubuti, founders of The Institute of Positive Education, discuss their journey as educators, publishers, and founders of several learning institutions that focus on African history and cultural values. As IPE prepares for an anniversary celebration this weekend, the Madhubutis reflect on the social andfinancial challenges involved in running independent schools.
