VRG school leaders attend ISTE in Atlanta, USA

IMG_1091[1]In June, Viktor Rydberg Foundation school leaders attended the International Society for Technology in Education in Atlanta, USA. Together with more than 16,000 other participants, we spent four full days in hands-on workshops, lectures, seminars, and poster presentations.  Both the quality of sessions and networking with other educational technology leaders from around the world made these days very valuable professional development.

The theme of the conference was “Connected Learning. Connected World“.istelogo

Maker movement, how to facilitate creative processes in the classroom, Google Apps for Education, wearable technology, collaborative processes via technology, digital storytelling, leadership for the connected classroom … and many more ideas were presented and discussed.IMG_1085[1]

Our own teacher, Kara Barker-Åström, also did a poster presentation about our Forensic Science class as an inquiry-based learning environment.

Now back at VRG, we are a team of staff members brainstorming and working to find good ways to share our new knowledge, find the right technology tools for the right needs in our classrooms. and continue to network and benchmark to make sure that we stay up-to-date with the newest developments in technology in education.

Want to hear more about what we learned and experienced at ISTE? Join us for an interactive workshop – September 10 at 16.00 at VRG-Djursholm.  To join this workshop, sign up here>>.  There is no cost for this session.  All are welcome!
