The two-day Summer Institute for BCPS lighthouse school teachers and administrators was a sea of color as each school group donned bright t-shirts to represent their school. Teachers were in high spirits and were excited to learn more about their new devices and best practices for leveraging technology to engage students.

"Everyone is just really on board and really excited," said Shannan Harzarik, a teacher at Chase Elementary School. "For students this gives them the tools and the ability to be successful in the 21st century. It's engaging and definitely levels the playing field. The fact that every school will have the same technology and same opportunities is great. Students will be engaged and will be in charge of their learning and it also boosts morale for teachers."

Participants attended workshops on topics including characteristics of a student-centered learning environment, databases for digital learning, social media and online research, among other subjects and got to hear from education innovator Hall Davidson of Discovery Education. << more >>
