SECOND-ANNUAL INNOVATION SUMMIT HELD FOR STAFF
On Aug. 10, District 15 hosted its second-annual Innovation Summit, providing digital-age instruction best practices to almost 300 staff members.
Held at Walter R. Sundling Junior High School, participants were greeted by building principal Jason Dietz who discussed the changing landscape of technology in the lives of our children. The keynote speaker, Katrina Keene, highlighted the ways in which the classroom landscape has changed from the tech-free 1980s of her childhood to the tech-filled lives our children are experiencing.
Founded by District 15 Deputy Superintendent Dr. Matt Barbini and planned carefully by the technology department and technology coordinators, attendees were able to choose from among 41 varied learning opportunities - from Digital Differentiation to Google Expedition to Twitter for Teachers.
This summit was planned by teachers, administrators and staff.
