PAECT Virtual Conference -- Keystones Together in Cyberspace
Participants in this course are attendees of the PAECT Virtual Conference "Keystones Together in Cyberspace" held virtually during the week of July 27, 2020 through July 31, 2020.
Course takers will participate in the four-day virtual conference by attending a variety of online sessions led by instructional technology experts. Following the virtual conference, 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 30th.
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 conference only and do not wish to receive graduate credit, you can skip this step and register directly at www.paect.org.

The KTI Summit and course were fantasticS.S., Elementary Teacher
Loved it! The KTI summit is AMAZING and the course was just the icing on top! Having the weekly assignments and final projects helped me pull together my ideas and sift through all of the new information I was learning.A.G., Librarian
Restructuring lesson plans. This project forces you to rethink what you are teaching and revamp to incorporate the focus of this course. The final project was relevant, meaningful, and purposeful; all qualities I value in a course.M.V., Elementary Teacher
I enjoyed this course. It really helped me to synthesize the information from the summit.C.T., Elementary Teacher

I think it was helpful to create resources using the new information we had learned at the Summit.C.B., Elementary Teacher

I was introduced to SAMR which will influence the way I view technology integration into my classroom.M.K., Social Studies Teacher
