Happy Teacher Appreciation Week!
In this special edition from METC, we are saying THANK YOU for helping us grow! Over the past several years, the METC Advisory has been able to focus on not just our conference, but also our membership, partnerships, professional development, and student success...and we owe that to you!
Through our relationships with educators, vendors, and corporations, our METC conference attendance has grown to steadily offer over 2,000 educators three days of high quality professional development. Our long-term academies have grown to include more topics and participants, especially the LMS Academy. The regional focus on supporting our districts professional development through edcamps, customized professional learning, and virtual PD continues be sought after.
METC has shown a significant increase of student participation at our conference, sharing their skills in IT, web design, journalism, and social networking. Through our new summit on digital citizenship, students have been empowered to make personal modifications to their actions that impact school-wide change. This was driven and supported by you.
Connecting innovative educators has been rewarding for METC and we want to continue to honor the importance of your learning together. We are offering some free and discounted workshops this summer so you can continue to build your capacity. I hope you can take advantage of the offerings below. We can't say thank you enough.
Happy Learning & Connecting,
Director of Educational Innovation / METC
