Special Topics in Educational Tech (KTI STARs Summit)
Keystone Technology Innovator 2019 Summit
Participants in this course are attendees of the Keystone Technology Integrator Conference held at Shippensburg University during the week of July 22, 2019 through July 26, 2019. Each participant has been nominated by their principal as a teacher who effectively uses technology in the classroom. Additionally, each participant submitted examples of their work to a team that further validated the quality of the participant’s skills.
Course takers will participate in the week-long Summit by attending a variety of sessions led by instructional technology experts. Following the Summit, students will further expand, reflect, and examine their new knowledge through the analysis of their current classroom practices. Through the creation of classroom policies, procedures, and lessons, learners will showcase their understanding of top tools and ideas in educational technology today. All required course work must be completed by August 9th.
This page registers you for the 3-credit, Wilson College graduate course (work outside of the Summit week is required). If you are planning to attend the Summit only and do not wish to receive graduate credit, you can skip this step and register directly at www.paect.org.

I enjoyed this course immensely because it was a good fit with the KTI Summit. It extended teacher's knowledge because we learned about technology options and learned how to apply it with the SAMR model. Extended thinking at it's best!S.F., Tech Specialist

I have never learned so much in one week or have been surrounded by so many people with new ideas. I have gained so much knowledge and have been so inspired to make new discoveries and implement new ideas. However, our schedule was jam packed and I didn't have a lot of time to work on my assignments. Would have liked a little bit longer to complete assignments.J.S., Elementary Teacher
