About 40 teachers from all around the metro area attended the Harvard-based EdTech Teacher’s 10th Annual Summer Teaching With Technology workshop series during the week of June 11–15, hosted by The Davis Academy.
The sessions, Teaching the Elementary Grades With Technology and iPads and ePubs in the Classroom, focused on effective ways to integrate technology in the classroom. Shown here are Davis Academy 21st Century Learning Coordinator Stacy Brown (front) and Davis first grade teacher Dara Amram (back), who attended the workshop.
“The Davis Academy was honored to host this exciting workshop series,” said Davis Head of School Amy Shafron. “Our teachers have been very excited and energized by the creative ways that technology can be used in the classrooms and allow more emphasis on student-centered learning. Professional development of this calibre takes us even farther.”
EdTech Teacher’s mission is to help teachers and schools leverage technology to create student-centered, inquiry-based learning environments.
