Celebrating Innovation in Education: An Update

Last Wednesday, I co-hosted two online sessions celebrating the innovative works of several local teachers.  The sessions were part of a week-long event called Education on Location: National Issues at Home that was organized by the School of Education at Millersville University.  The online sessions were really exciting and very inspirational.  Since many people were probably unable to attend the event due to its timing, we recorded the sessions.  If you have a moment, check out each of the sessions and watch the videos of the teachers’ projects.  You’ll see everything from Nanotechnology in an AP Chemistry classroom to Twitter being used as part of Geography lesson in an elementary classroom.

I’d like to thank David Solon, Instructional Technology Coordinator at the Lancaster-Lebanon Intermediate Unit for co-hosting the event and partnering with Millersville to organize these sessions.  I’d also like to thank all of the teachers for agreeing to participate in the sessions and for being such excellent models for innovation.
