Culture Building Events

We host four different types of events, each targeting a different stakeholder in order to get buy-in.

District Leadership Summit for Administrators

Lead a discussion that brings new perspective and vision to technology in the classroom.

One day, 4 to 6 hours

The conversation focuses on the top 10 barriers we have seen to move to 1:1 or BYOD, and have a conversation about overcoming those challenges.

Top 10 barriers:

  1. Lack of Vision or road map

  2. “We don’t have money”

  3. Curriculum

  4. Supplemental to essential use

  5. Technology infrastructure

  6. Mindset - Students/Teachers/Administrators

  7. Parents - “But that’s not the way I learned”

  8. Takes too long for change

  9. Assessments

  10. Schools buying tablets, and not learning solution

Conference for Teachers

Leave teachers with an excitement for the technology initiative, and a thirst to learn more on their own.

One to two days, 6 to 8 hours each day

It can be difficult to find speakers, content, and run your annual district conference effectively. We have participated in hundreds of conferences and love to partner with districts to provide a more robust and motivating experience for educators. We assist with everything from building the conference schedule to providing speakers and running the conference.

Anderson School District One, SC

We organized a conference for 600 teachers in Anderson, SC.

We certified 18 local teachers to present workshops, and brought in 16 of our own speakers to provide keynotes, panel discussions, and additional workshops. We also trained 45 high school students to represent the student body as leaders in the new 1:1 initiative - this phenomenal group of students assisted in the Conference and had presentations of their own! The energy throughout the event was incredible.
