Course Description:

This summer workshop, centered on education technology, is designed to bring educators and leaders together to solve large problems in education. The workshop provides participants with the environment needed to work on real solutions for effectively implementing technology in the classroom, and participants will leave the workshop with programs and products in place to be tested by the SchoolBoost Laboratory Schools network. Each morning and afternoon will feature a distinguished speaker intended to provoke thought, encouragement, and inspiration. The rest of the workshop is dedicated to facilitating small group work on programs and products that can be used in classrooms around the country. Each participant will join a team based on their subject area, interests, and expertise. Teams will create a product, program, or policy proposal throughout the week and present their work on Friday's Pitch Day.

  1. Identify available resources for effectively implementing technology in the classroom.
