e-Rupting Education: How Digital Classrooms Are About More Than Just Technology

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Digital technology like iPads, eTextbooks and smartboards are at the forefront of the changing classroom model. Ask any school with a successful digital model and they'll tell you It's not as easy as adapting old teaching models to include technology, that's only part of it. We call the process e-Rupting education. You have to meet kids at their level, where they work and live, and if you are behind the times, you are doing them a disservice. Join us to learn best practices for modifying and re-defining elements of your curriculum to best prepare your students for the future.


Now two years into their iPad program, come hear about South Kent Schools’ advances in curriculum and how it has changed the classroom to truly prepare students for college and beyond. Instead of high-level over-generalizations, you'll hear real on-the-ground experiences from teachers, administrators and students - what works and what doesn’t work and the partners that can make it a reality.
