Special Topics in Educational Tech (KTI STARs Summit)
Keystone Technology Innovator 2018 Summit
Participants in this course are attendees of the Keystone Technology Integrator Conference held at Shippensburg University during the week of July 23, 2018 through July 27, 2018. 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.
During the week each participant will attend and participate in a variety of sessions led by technology and instruction experts. Using the SAMR model and taking the knowledge and skills gained in sessions from the week, participants will transform lessons to higher levels.
