Lucy Gray is co-organizing this conference with Kyle Brumbaugh on behalf of the Educator Prep Program at Rio Salado College.
Rio Salado's Educator Prep Program and the National Science Foundation Noyce Scholar Program (SMILE) are hosting an educational technology conference on Saturday, August 5, 2017, in the Rio Salado College Conference Center (Tempe) from 8:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. The AZ K-12 Ed Tech Conference: Empowering the Student-Centered Classroom will serve as a great low-cost networking and professional development event.
This conference provides hands-on technology professional development for pre-service teachers, educators and homeschooling parents who are looking for new ways to engage children with technology and make learning more meaningful. Sessions will focus on leveraging educational technology to impact learning in innovative ways. Come find out ways to use various innovations applications and strategies effectively across your curriculum!
Presenters are experienced K12 teachers who have a national presence in the ed tech world. Each presenter has successfully implemented a variety of ed tech tools and strategies in their own classrooms and has supported teachers in a variety of subject areas to do the same. At the end of the day, you will walk away with several tools and ideas that you can put into place immediately with your own students.
Steve Hargadon and Lucy Gray are the team behind Global Education Event. They believe in the power of globally connected learning for people of all ages and their primary goal is to create opportunities for students, educators and organizations to come together for the purposes of developing professionally, improving education and increasing global understanding and collaboration.
Technology is the key to Globaled Events. One of the powers of tech is to bridge geographical boundaries by connecting people. Social media also plays an essential role in the sharing of resources and the continuation of conversations. Face to face connections are important and some of Globaled Events present in person opportunities for our community members to meet each other.
Lucy has taught a number of courses for the Technology in Education program at National Louis University and recently resumed this work. In the spring of 2017, she taught an online course on professional development and will teach another this summer focused on ed tech tools.
